I have two Jose Ortiz mohair cinches that I like, I can't quite remember the size, I think one was about 38 inches and the other a bit less (or they may be 34 and 32 or 30 inches, I can't remember, I leant the saddle to a friend so I can't go and measure them), I use them both on one saddle for both front and rear girths.
On another saddle I have a Cowboy Tack mohair roper cinch that I bout in about 1994 which has been looked after and still going strong, I never found them to stretch much really, not that I have noticed. I have another cheap one I don't even know the brand of too, its a bit lighter than Id like, yet I haven't noticed even it stretch. I really like the Jose Ortiz ones, you can pick them up for pretty decent prices on eBay. And yeah, mohair is the way to go, I wouldn't bother with anything else personally.
