You provide exactly zero context, but I think you're talking about
"Git for Windows" (also known as msysgit) because on POSIX systems
an SSH client is usually a part of the system.

Some points (again):

 * This is just a dirty hack.  If you really want to make msysgit better
   consider patching it to fetch and build a newer OpenSSH client,
   then submit a patch (via the msysgit mailing list).
   The project is undermanned so such a patch will be welcomed, I think.
 * I would just use PuTTY and its plink.exe executable (it's a
   command-line tool loosely resembling the "ssh" command-line tool
   from OpenSSH).  It's a 100% native Windows application,
   which also conveniently supports caching of keys (via the included
   pageant program).
