Are you looking for a straight cinch or a roper type?
This is the one that I use on all my horses right now. The only thing I don't like about it is that the leather part in the middle also has a leather part on the other side of the cinch and if I don't keep it lined up exactly right, it will rub a sore spot. Because of that, I won't be getting this brand again. Roper Smart Roll Snug Horse Cinch | NRS - National Roper Supply - Western Wear, tack, team ropes, horse tack, team roping ropes, bits...
I will probably go for something like this next time. Classic Roper Nylon Center | NRS - National Roper Supply - Western Wear, tack, team ropes, horse tack, team roping ropes, bits...
Ok, still contemplating a mohair cinch.
Why would you swtich from the 'smart roll' to regular.
I was reading the the smart cinches are more humane, but not sure if that's true or not?
Brandon's girth has no give to it, it is felt/fuzzy, but it's a bit big on him. I am not sure if I *want* give because we use a Skito pad with shims that flatten out as you go. That is why I was thinking about the smart cinch because I know you can tighten it from the saddle.
I am also afraid to change things with him because he is Mr. Particular about his gear, but he's been kinda cranky about his girth tightening lately.
