Mohair string. Better grip, breathes and doesn't slip like a sweaty neoprene does.

Anyone used the mohair endurance English style? My mare can't seem to keep a saddle in place (it slides drastically back) with English rigging...I don't want to spend the 100 bucks if it won't help :(

I ride in a Smart Cinch Airflex. It's not my favorite though. It rubs a little if I ride for a really long time. Just a couple small places, but it still bugs me. I prefer woolback cinches. I've never had a problem with them rubbing, but you got keep them clean and debris free.

I hate the mohair cinches. The neoprene is ok, but I really want a toklat cinch to match my pad. I love my toklat pad, it's a royal blue coolback.

I have a neoprene cinch. Its okay, advantage : does not allow brush or stickers to stay on ,
Disadvantage : they seem to get sweatier / hotter .
The mohair or rope cinches breath better but I have seen them pinch some.
The felt helps with the sweat, but stickers love it.

My vote goes to either mohair or alpaca. I managed to snag an almost-new classic equine alpaca cinch for $15 at a tack swap. It's been through a couple of 10+ hour trail rides with nary a rub mark on my horse at the end of the day. I've seen the neoprene severely gall too many horses even after just an hour or two.

LOL, and I've seen people get pile-drived by a sensitive or thin-skinned horse because of a dry neoprene cinch.

Weaver felt, not the smart cinch one (not a fan). I go to the beach, mountains and all around the ranch. Love it.
