What type of western cinch to use in hot summer days?

I was just wondering a random question here
In the winter i always use my western fleece cinches but in the summer i use a rayon straight cinch, however i would like to know what i else i could use other than my fleece cinch in the summer hot days

Hope to see some opinions, ideas or what type of western cinch do you use?

Wool or mohair. But, then, I use those year round.

all year around i use a professional choice girth.. the type of material is not coming to my mind , but if you really want me to look in to it inbox me :) mine has dozens of small holes to help everything nice and breath !

I use mohair all year round with my gelding. Being south of Tucson Arizona, even our winters are kind of warm. But I haven't seen a problem when using mohair in the summer. We only have one western saddle, so I can't boast of a large sample size.

Flyinghighleo: Could you be talking about the smx pro choice which is made of like a waffle neoprene material?

Thank you all for your replies and advice when summer will come i will check for a new cinch in one of the kinds you guys mentioned, thank you!

I like the cotton or mohair girths as they breath well, but neoprene is nice too because you can just rinse off all the sweat after ;)

Mohair multistrand, year round. Stay away from neoprene as it can break down the skin.

Mohair all year round.

Do Mohair cinches stretch after a few uses? My mare wears a 32 fleece cinch right now and she's a bit chubby i would say and this summer she'll be back in shape , i want to buy a mohair cinch but not sure if I should get a 30'' or 32'' ? This summer i was using a 28'' rayon cinch I had bought from pleasant ridge and it stretched out but she needs bigger now since she filled out (she's only 5 1/2 yrs old) Please help me choose the right size :) Thank you

I haven't had my cinches (wool and mohair) stretch significantly. I've just gotten the size I needed and haven't had to replace due to stretching.
