I have the same. I absolutely love it!

I have one of those. Selena LOVES it, but Bailey for some reason gets really bitchy in it. Mares, I swear. So she just has a plain neoprene one that she likes.

I almost got one of those air flex cinches, but I was worried the edges would rub my mare. I have a standard neoprene one on her right now, but I just ordered one of these: Classic Equine SensorFlex Roper Cinch -

Unfortunately it's on back order so I'm going to have to wait a while to try it out.

The edges are not ruff.

I also really like and recommend this girth....I have two of them.

Classic Equine

^ that's the type I have. Im weird though and Ill only buy roping style cinches. Just looks/seems more comfortable...wider area less pressure concentrate.

I did too 1RedHorse, but I started talking to a sales Rep and she was explaining why sue prefers straight ones for running horses....have you ever tried squeezing one before?

Ropers are hard to squeeze with one hand.....meaning when the horse is running it makes it harder for them to extend and dig with their front legs.....its like the girth gets in the way.

Its not a huge difference but I now use the straight ones because of this.

I must be different...All I use are string cinches.

I prefer wool but they are harder to keep clean, I ride trail. So, what has worked well for me is neoprene(soft touch.) It has a tendency to get a little warmer but my horses never get any sores from it. I seriously would like to try an Alpaca wool cinch.

My favorite is the Classic Equine Soft Touch. I like them in the roper style to spread out the pressure as much as possible
