THR, that is one good thing about living in an area where the humidity is very low. I can wash a cinch in the morning and it will be dry and ready to go by that afternoon in the summer. Pads are ready to use again the following day after a wash LOL.

Gidget, thanks for the tips! I actually have a neoprene cinch for Lacey to use with her Aussie saddle (the saddle came with it) and it seems to work pretty well. However, Aussie saddles are quite a bit different than western ones!
And, when she gets really sweaty in the Aussie saddle, the girth squeaks against her skin/hair. She doesn't seem to mind but it bothers me SO much, so icky!
Anyway, glad to know that neoprene isn't the end all of cinches.

Thanks THR! I'd love to try a mohair cinch one day! They sound luxurious.
The one I ordered came in the mail a few days ago and I haven't gotten the chance to ride in it yet, but in looking at it, I'm very impressed with the quality I got for $14! It's not cheap feeling at all, very soft, and very thick. It is just cotton so nothing fancy, but it's the softest string cinch I've ever felt (haven't seen many, haha).

Smrobs, I wish we had that kind of humidity here (maybe...)! On a boiling hot summer day, if you put something directly in the sun, it might (if you're lucky) be dry in a day. Otherwise, you're looking at two-three days of drying time (one time I forgot about this and washed my saddle pad when I needed to use it the next day, I was mad haha).
In the winter you can forget about anything drying off, ever. For instance, on Monday I rode Lacey and her girth, the neoprene one, got kinda foamy and gross. I didn't want to take it all the way to my house to hose off so I figured I'd let it dry and brush it off on Tuesday. Wrong. It was still wet and foamy today. I ended up taking it home to hose off and bringing it into the house to dry.
Anyway, I wish it was drier here! Lol!

That's pretty well the way it is here too. Except during monsoon season in late summer. And all winter. In winter I have to worry about things freezing! But luckily cinches and blankets stay cleaner in the winter too.
