I also find there are less rubbing issues with the roper style cinch. It clears the elbows well.

Speaking of which, I'm adding cinches to my custom tack line, but since I don't have one made at the moment, I wouldn't want to offer something I can't guarantee is going to be absolutely wonderful ;)

However, I'm in contact with other custom cinch makers if you want some help getting connected! I believe the cinch you want would be under $100 from one or two of them based upon the pricing of some of their other cinches

That's great! I hope she'll have some ideas and recommendations for me!

Gottatrot, I have seen the same cinch on another site and it is listed as having 1 inch buckles. Sooooo close though!! Thanks for looking!

Wow. I've never heard that before. I guess I don't get how it causes any more pressure than a regular cinch. Could you explain a little further?

As to the why, I like the fact that it is wider, but doesn't interfere with the horse's elbows. I know when I am carrying stuff, a thicker handle is much more comfortable than a thin one. I figured the same probably holds true for my horse.

I've used both straight cinches and roper cinches on my horses and they seem to like the roper style better. However, I am interested in hearing how it could be bad.

Thanks!
She said Montanna cinches like this one at distance depot,
You have to call and verify buckle size as they make em for 1 and 1.5" billets. If the distance depot doest stock it in 1.5 montana will make you one. https://www.thedistancedepot.com/Mon.../fth-mcend.htm

She has western rigging on her specialized but does use the wider roper style mohair and she's been doing endurance a long time.

That's neat! I love cinches, so when you've got some made, let me know! You already know what I'm looking for.

I would very much appreciate any references that you could shoot my way!

By the way, thanks for the link to the "Bootie Pads". I just emailed them to find out about colors. I like wool, so I think they'll be the best option for me.



Thanks for that, Joe4d! I'm going to call tomorrow. I hope that they have some 1.5 buckled ones in!

As a side note, since I've got you all looking here anyway. I am looking into wool seat covers. The problem is, I have no idea which ones are good quality and work well. Any brand recommendations? Or are just about any of the ones that the popular endurance stores carry, good options??

If you run your hand around a horse's chest, behind the front legs you will feel a flat area and a bump under there. The cinch should sit forward of the bump, not on top of it. The horse has a natural path for a cinch/girth to sit which is about 5" wide. If the cinch is too wide it may start crawling forward which could result in skin being pinched and possibly create sores.
