I’m considering a bamboo cinch. Anyone already using one?
Also, comparing other fiber cinches…
I have a 100% mohair that I love, but I paid $$ for it in custom colors, so I just use it to show. And, sadly, there is a chance it might be too short to work with my new saddle—I haven’t tried it yet. For those of you who are probably putting in more hours than me, how does mohair compare to mohair blend to alpaca?
And do you worry about rubs from the buckles? I didn’t worry for the 15-20 minutes of showing, but what about a lengthy trail ride? Do you have to use cinch guards?
My goto girth has been a professional’s choice merino wool lined, but it’s pretty bulky right behind the elbow, so I’ve been thinking of changing it up. Plus it irks me that I can’t simply buy a replacement wool liner for it. It comes off to wash, and I’d love to have a second one to rotate.
