A little Cinch help please

I finally found a saddle for my boy ben but the front cinch is about to snap so im trying to find another, I would rather it be nylon but if I can t find one i'll do with leather. The one I have now is 70 inches and a bit too small for him. I have no idea where to start looking, can anyone help me out, just incase I am not giving the right name of the part I m posting a pic of him, this is not the saddle im using but I've circled the part that im talking about. Thanks to anyone who can help.

She means the actual cinch strap, what attaches the cinch under the belly to the dring on the saddle. You want a nice long one since you loop it around a couple times for better tightening of the cinch...I found some nylon ones on ebay here:

2 nylon girth straps for saddle 70 1/2" length - eBay (item 380103904079 end time Mar-14-09 13:15:40 PDT)

Hope this helps!

I think you are talking about the latigo. If you have a tack repair person in your area, they would probably be able to help you out.

Those straps are something you definitely want to get replaced ASAP. I replace mine as soon as they start to look weak. They are easy to take off and put a new one on and they are usually inexpensive.
One thing I did notice is your actual cinch looks a bit short on the near side. It may just be the angle of the photo but I'll add my 2 anyway.
The ring of the cinch should be above the elbow on both sides.
The correct length will help keep the saddle in place better and make your horse more comfortable.

Looks to me like you might need a longer girth and a longer latigo on the other side...then the 70" you have now on this side would be plenty. What length is your girth?
