tre cinchar

Choose cinch size

 
  • 28" usually fits Quarter, 32" Paint, 20 "Mini pony, 24" pony.                          
  • The mohair cinch shall spread pressure evenly over the horse's muscle Caudal Deep Pectoral.
  • Narrower than 10 cm means that it cuts in and the horse feels the cinch.
  • Wider than 14 cm inhibits movement and breathing. Pony not smaller than 8 cm and not wider than 10 cm.
  • Model "Roper" looks like an hourglass, the wide part measures 22 cm, while the narrowest part is 10 cm. Roper model is not fully tightened, it is quite loose. If Roper model is tightened, it creates a limited breathing for the horse. A genuine Roper rider do not tighten the cinch fully until when it really counts and releases after cinchen as soon as the job is done ...
  • General rule of thumb is that two fingers should fit comfortably between the cinch and your horse.
  • If you feel you have to tighten, check that the saddle is correct and what the rig position you are using. Have you double D maybe you should change the rigging position, possibly you may need to supplement with a flank cinch.
  • Rigging position on the saddle and your purpose determines which cinch that fits. See the table chart below.
  • Do not use a cinch wider than 14 cm.
  • The more and thicker strands, the softer and more comfortable for the horse. 2 layers of strands 15 + 14 = 29 strands provide a cinch width of 10 cm NOTE! not wider than 14 cm or narrower than 10 cm.
