What type of western cinch do you suggest?

I realized that I need new cinches for both of my horses. I figured out their sizes and was all excited to buy a cinch, until I remembered how many different styles and materials there are to choose from!

So, my big question, is what would you suggest for my two horses?

Both are trail ridden and I am hoping to start doing more activities with them this summer (sorting cows, reining lessons, etc.). Ellie is a little cinchy, so I want to make sure that something is comfortable for her. She always has been a little cinchy, but it got a little worse when she got a rash while at the trainers (combination of the cinch and terribly hot temps). Sampson has cow hide for skin as far as I am concerned While I want it to be comfy for him too, I am not as concerned about him as he goes with the flow.

So what style and material would you suggest for me?

It is going to be a matter of personal preference on cinches.

I personally use Professionals choice cinches, with a roller for easier cinching.

I like the neo foam. It washes off super easy without much hard labor. Is not known to get stiff in cold weather. You will need to have a cinch that has rings for both a breast collar and a back cinch if you want to do cow work. They also work great for a horse that hates cinch's.

I second that! I use this cinch on my mare and it is so freaking simple to cinch her up with the roller. It is easy to adjust and it doesn't chafe or pinch her belly. I stretch out her front legs to ensure there is no pinched skin anyway, but I absolutely love this cinch.

I prefer Mohair to anything else on the market, but Professional's Choice cinches are decent, as well. I find that neoprene rubs and creates galls.

I know some of it is personal choice, but I have heard so many stories....

For example, the rope cinches pulls out hair, whereas the neoprene rubs against their skin causing more issues. Is this true? Is there one type of cinch I should stay away from?

Thanks for the replies so far!

I have used the Mohair string cinches for years and I love them, the thing that I refuse to use is the funky roller buckles, that is when I have noticed pinching and hair pulling.

Another vote for mohair. I've noticed that I don't end up cinching as tightly as my old felt cinch, as the mohair is naturally a little "clingy" to the horse.

Mohair or alpaca. Neoprene sores like no other..
