Get a good mohair 17 strand cinch instead. Natural material, grippy, wicks sweat away yet allows air. The skin seems to be more inclined to break down under neoprene, despite the mfg. claims.

You want this cinch for WP? After 35 years showing that discipline, dollar for dollar, Weaver's smartcinch works the best for me. Sorry, never tried the airflex.

Love the air flex-hate the others. Airflex is all I have. Easy to clean, easy to use. I tried the Smartcinch and really didn't like it, and Mohair one came with my saddle-it always looked awful and full of hair no matter what I did. I have a dark color horse, and the black hair in the mohair looked awful. Love the airflex.

I haven't heard too many bad things said about this cinch until now. But when ppl say they like it they REALLY like it. and that's why i asked if the string cinch suitable for western pleasure cause it doesn't look too showy. i will get a string cinch because they are cheaper just to try it but i will give airflex a try.

has anyone tried it on long trail rides yet? i would like to know how they do on long rides.

There are no rules on your choice of cinch for wp. There are the wool string cinches and non-wool. I've used the non-wool but prefer the mohair.

Actually the real mohair ones are really not that cheap. I just prefer something that looks cleaner, and the horse seems to be fine with . I have had no issue with sores, but I also do not do endurance stuff.

Saddlebag-it is not neoprene.

string cinches are NOT cheaper, those are fake synthetics and are not good at all,
Real mohair cord girths, Weaver smart cinch felt and neoprenes are decent as well. What size girth do you need ? I have two might make you a deal
