This is just a personal preference, but I refuse to ride a green horse without one. I've seen quite a few instances where a horse ducked his head and went to bucking in a saddle without a back cinch and the saddle and rider both got bucked off over the horse's head.

Not only that, but I find it's easier to introduce all the tack at once (back cinch, breast collar) instead of getting them started under saddle and then introducing it later.

I also want to put it that you never really want a loose cinch, make sure there is no gap between the cinch and the horse, i've heard horror stories of people out trail riding and a stick going up between the horse and cinch and the horse being speared, or getting stuck or it causing a bucking fit.
