I own 3 , a felt lined cinch, a neoprene, and a string, I love them and I feel that they are easier for me to cinch up because I am short. I have had the felt one for about 3 yrs, the string one for about 2 yrs and the neoprene one for maybe a year. They are holding up great..the string one is started to show signs of wear (pulling apart) but it isnt unsafe but I plan to replace it soon.
They get a lot of use too.
Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
