Same as smrobs, I have noticed an 1" or 2"stretch with a mohair cinch. That is why we buy them shorter than we think we might need. When we do wash them I remember to re-cinch often as to compensate for the stretch.
But I have read of folks pre-stretching with a couple of nails in a board while they are wet then leaving until dry.

Great info, was wondering myself if i should get a size smaller mohair girth in case it would stretch. I currently have just a regular 27 strand cinch, bought new 28'', now measures 32''... it stretched 4''

I love my mohair cinch. It did stretch a little bit when my horses get sweaty but not even that much to notice it a whole lot.

I have a mohair 5 Star cinch that I LOVE-- it has really held up well and I've been very happy with it. Highly recommend!
