English Girth size, convert to Western Cinch Size...Help!
My horse is going to be shown Western on SUNDAY!
I have a saddle arriving in the mail for him on FRIDAY!
My local tack shop is not open on WEEKENDS!
So...I need to buy a cinch for him before I ever try on the saddle!
I've found websites that say "measure horse's heart girth, divide by 2, subtract 3...that's your girth and cinch size!" But I know Girths and Cinches for different disciplines are not going to be the same size...
My horse uses a 50" or 52" Girth on a huntseat saddle. Anyone know approximately what size Western cinch I should get for him?
I use 32'' for western and 46'' for english (my horse is 15 hh).
Look at this one:
Hope it helps!
Also, don't stress so much over western cinch sizes. They are much more adjustable than english cinches.
If in doubt, though, try not to get one thats too big.
I'd guess you need about 32" or a 34".
Thanks guys! I think I'll probably be going with a 34. I read somewhere online that you can have between 1 and 8 inches of billet between the cinch and the saddle on each side. That's 16 inches of wiggle room in case I'm a little off! Like you said Tim: much more adjustable!
What size of english girth does my horse need?
My Quarter Horse mare wears a 33 western girth but I don't know what she needs for a english cinch.
Can some one please help me?
I found it really depends on saddle, padding, and all. I use 32'' western on my horses (14'3 and 15'1), but 48" or 50" english. When I got 46" english I couldn't even tie it on my Collegiate... However it was fine on Wintec... :shock:
Thaknk ya my friend gave me a 52" and its huge. I touch the saddle and it flips.
Not thaknk but thanks
I have one more question. I'm getting a Pro-Craft Double Sided Waffle Weave Pad for my english and it's way thicker than my other pad & I have a a all purpose 500 wintec saddle. Should I use a 50" or a 48" cinch?
