    Rear cinch issue

    I was saddling yesterday to help round up some yearlings and the old rancher told me that if I'm going to use a rear cinch I need to tie/link it to the front cinch so it doesn't slide back into the flanks and set off a bucking issue. It makes sense to me (though I've never heard of that before, but being fairly new to horses . . .) , so I used a piece of baling twine to tie them together. My question is, is there something better than just tying a piece of string between them? Thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

    The item you need is called a "cinch hobble". Should be available at tack store, or online. And Yes, it's important.

    Absolutely agree tinyliny--very small but IMPORTANT piece of tack. Also make sure the rear cinch is not hanging with too much space--saw a nasty wreck happen when a horse kicked at his belly (fly, bug etc.?) and hung his rear hoof in it! Have a blessed day all.

    It's just a leather strap with a buckle or snaps. It goes from d ring on the front cinch to the rear d ring. It just keeps it from sliding back like the rancher said and becoming what is basically a rodeo bucking strap.

    Important, yes....about 18 years or so ago, I saw a team roper at the Grand Nationals Rodeo in San Francisco loose and almost get bucked off when his cinche hobble came undone during a run.

    Green Broke
    Get a decent one and check those in use.

    A guy I know had one break, so he used baling twine in a loop. He had the knot over the front cinch, it worked back. Ticked the horses belly and the show was pretty good. Rider didn't last.

    Last week, a friend's husband was schooling a new horse. Horse was being pretty squirrely, bucking quite a bit. Sunfishing, I'm told. He lasted the ride, but when he unsaddled he noticed a buckle on the keeper had rusted and broken and a metal piece was jabbing the horse in the belly. He felt awful!
