Thanks everyone. Right now I'm using a white felt cinch that came with the new saddle, like this one. Fabtron Brand White Felt Western Cinch

I had one of these
NewBreed Western Cinch - Horse.com and tried it, but it doesn't seem to grip him enough. The saddle seemed to slip more.

So I went back to the felt.

neoprene, and mohair work great! NO CHEEZY STUFF AND NO ROPE CINCHES!!!

A stubborn horse walks behind you, an impatient horse walks in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you.

I may be the odd one out here but I just don't like the way that neoprene looks. I don't know why. I always used the mohair or string roping cinches when I was growing up and sometimes had a horse get galled from them. When I finally got old enough to buy my own stuff, I started experimenting. I have tried pretty much everything except neoprene and leather. Just recently, I had a felt cinch but it got worn and the felt started to separate from the foam filler in the middle so now I have a merino wool roping cinch and I really like it so far.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I like the looks of that one. Looks comfy for the horse too.


Thanks everyone.

Smart Cinch by Weaver here. So easy.

Horses are God's apology for men.

I never use those thin nylon ones a lot of people do; I either use soft leather/suede or that cotten material
