The cinch (girth) has been in use for nearly 3000 years. The cinch didn’t make an appearance until around 700 B.C. in the Middle East when Assyrian warriors added straps to their decorative saddle cloths.
In western riding, the girth is referred to as a cinch. The cinch (girth) is a piece of horse tack used to keep the western saddle in place on the horse. The cinch passes under the barrel of the horse. It attaches to the western saddle by a single wide leather strap on each side, called a Latigo or Billet.

Mohair, is a long natural animal fiber that is the silky hair of the Angora goat which has been carded, spun and corded. Not only does mohair wick sweat and moisture away from your horse, it is breathable, soft, resilient and durable. Mohair cinches are a good choice for horses who chafe or are allergic to synthetic or non-breathing materials commonly used in today's cinches. Mohair's durability and breathability make it an ideal material for comfortable, sturdy and long lasting cinches with proper care. Simply brush off the dried and caked mud and dirt. In addition, there is no need to brush off the horse hair as, over time, it will felt with the mohair cincha resulting in even more comfort for you horse. If necessary, we recommend hand washing and rising in cold water. Hang and let it air dry. If there is any shrinkage, your cinch will stretch back to its original length with use. When you receive your cinch, it will be about one inch shorter than ordered. This is to compensate for the natural stretch within the fiber. All cinches are 100% mohair unless otherwise noted. Due to market demands, we may occasionally need to use a 96% mohair, 4% wool blend. In such cases, you will be notified. These are made by hand one at a time so give 2-3 weeks for delivery and custom colors are available so just ask.
