My first question is how old is the horse, how much training does he/she have?
Cinchyness can be from several different reasons. Each reason can have different fixes.
1) New to being ridden - might not understand what is going on - chich up slower to give the horse time to get used to it.
2) Ill fitting saddle - use a different saddle. If you are hurting the horse by cinching him, no matter what you do, he is not goign to stop complaining. Especially if it hurts bad enough that just cinching it hurts.
3) memory of an ill fitting saddle. This one Jody111 gave great advice for.
4) Hates being ridden - start with Jody111's suggestions, and make sure to add treats and lots of fun stuff (for the horse) while you are riding.
