Girth straps are part of a tack set required to ride tamed SWEM Horses. A girth strap is the forth tack item that can be used following a bridle; by default you cannot place a girth on unless the horse has a saddle on. A girth strap is a requirement prevent a saddle from falling off.
Right click a tamed SWEM Horse with a girth strap in hand to equip it - or open the horse's GUI menu (shift + right click with an empty hand) to place the item in the designated tack spot. If a horse already has a girth strap on, you can easily 'hotswap' it for another by shift + right-clicking with the new girth strap in hand.
Girth straps do not offer any perks or buffs, and you can use any girth strap with any other riding tack pieces to mix English, Western & Adventure. The only exception is Adventure Girth require a full matching set to use Horse Armor, but once the armor is put on the girth strap can be 'hotswapped' out for different versions.
Without a Girth, the Saddle has a 20% chance of falling off every second. When it does, the player will be dismounted.
