how to make my leather cinch strap slid easier?

My cinch strap on my saddle wants to stick and not slide for me when I am trying to tighten the saddle. I thought about saddle soap but wasn't for sure. I don't want to use anything that could cause skin irritation to the horse.

You can use baby powder, but that makes the cinch kinda of...it's hard to describe but the baby powder makes it kind of a nasty texture. However, it won't stick anymore!
I don't know about saddle soap, hopefully someone else knows. :)
Alternatively, you could buy another cinch... They aren't too expensive...

Yep, baby powder or corn starch will stop it from sticking. Though that is why I prefer the nylon latigos and I make sure my cinch has some give in it.

You could just invest in a nylon latigo. They're about $10 and slide much easier. They also come in a variety of colours, so you can have it match and look brown like leather or have zebra print (like me! Haha). I much prefer nylon to leather latigos just because they slide easier.

A latigo with a print on it?? Where did you find such an awesome thing? Can I haz? Hahaha

I agree with Poseidon and smrobs, I use nylon latigos instead of leather ones because I find nylon so much easier to use!

Wallaby, I got it on eBay from a store. I tried looking it up again, but it doesn't say they have anymore. I found their username through PayPal history. 4G's Ranch < Graebtech Network This is their website if you want to email them and ask if they have anymore. When I got mine in September, they had a bunch of different colours and patterns of nylon latigos.

This is mine. It's a little dirty and my kitchen floor pattern is just the best.. (Yes, my saddle is currently chillin in my kitchen. Haha)

I just got a new smartcinch girth from weaver. It definitely slides easier. I've only used it twice, though, so I can't give you the low-down on long-term durability.

I actually like the leather latigos because they don't slide as much as the nylon ones.
Try putting Neets Foot or Mink Oil on the latigo. It will make the leather more pliable & should make it easier for you to cinch up your horse.
