Neoprene. Plus, I think it looks better in the show ring. I use them for everything though -- I really love them.

That's what I think too, they just look so much better. I have one on my show saddle as well as my riding saddle. I don't really think they make the horse sweat anymore than any other kind of cinch though. Neoprene is definitely my choice.

Boils down to what the horse can handle. None of my horses will tolerate neoprene cinches.

I use mohair, hospital felt and standard string. My favorite is the hospital felt. Washes very nicely in the machine or with a power washer.

I've never heard of hospital felt cinches. Could you provide a link for one? Thanks.

We use both neoprene and felt cinches. They both provide good grip without having to tighten them too much, don't chafe our mares like string cinches, and they appear to sweat about the same with either one.

I use my felt smart cinch for everything I do in my western saddle. I don't think I could go back to using a non smart cinch after having it for so long.
