There is a reason that every outfitter I have worked with uses the same cinches...mohair or soft fiber strand. They don't gall horses like neoprene...Yuck, I hate them. There are some nice looking ones out there that work great, even on long trail rides, but use one day in and day out in the mountains and I willalmost guarantee it will end up giving a sore. Strand are easy to clean, you don't have to suck the wind out of the horse to keep it in place and they last a long time. If neoprene were the best choice for long rides, every outfitter camp would be full of them.
