Mohair Girths?

Does anyone have experience with Mohair girths? Did you like them or no? They seem like they'd be kind of rough on the horse... but I like the price! I figured I'd ask before I subject her to something painful ;)

Thanks!

Mohair makes an excellent cinch. It has a bit of grip yet wicks moisture away from the horse.

I love my mohair girth and my horse will second that. I think it has better grip than, say, a neoprene girth and it has a little bit of extra give. It also wicks moisture pretty well. When I bought mine, I'll admit, I bought it for the price, but it turns out that I liked it more than any of my other girths. I was also worried about it stretching out, but I haven't had a problem with it at all. I say go for it!

ETA: My horse likes this girth, too. It doesn't rub or seem uncomfortable for her at all. :)

Mohair cinchs are THE best! They shape to the horse, have some give but are not slippery and wick moisture away. Hands down winner.

Curious on how money was saved? The mohair girths we purchase are $50 or better!

Yeah, I was going to say "cheaper" not my way either. Mine cost me $50 bucks but it was well worth it.

Never galled my horse and she seemed to like it. I go through some rough bushes with burrs and I never had any stuck on this girth either.

ETA Mine is a smart cinch western roper girth 27 string so may be that is why its more expensive.

I have one of these, and it works just as good as my more expensive mohair girth.

Wow, I wonder why the english style ones are so much cheaper???

I've paid $50-65 for the western ones. But I LOVE them. They are soft and breathable. I've switched to all mohair (or the Classic Equine Alpaca) cinches and me and my horses are very happy with them! They never rub the skin and they are washable too. And did I mention very soft.

I hate the neoprene ones. I have friends who use them and I think they make their horses hot and sweaty and stinky. And I know of one horse who galls really bad with neoprene too.
