TSF's innovative Stretchtec technology already well established for English riding, now applied to their Western Cinch. Building on their highly successful Shoulder Relief Cinch, this new Stretchtec version incorporates a new triangular centre elastic section that helps the cinch conform to the horse's barrel and provides additional expansion for breathing. Perfect for hard to fit horses and sensitive types needing maximum breathing room
Why we chose it
- Anatomical shape: Retains TSF's anatomical shape that runs forward into the horse's natural girth groove: helps prevent the cinch pulling the saddle forward and provides maximum shoulder and elbow freedom
- New triangular elastic section that helps the cinch conform better, reducing any gaping at the front, creates a more even spread of pressure, and provides significant additional expansion for breathing
- Top-quality saddle leather on the exterior to avoid stretching and provide long life, padded calf skin inside, elastic on both ends (in addition to the centre section), stainless steel buckles and hardware
"It's a great girth. My mare has always been girthy, has a forward girth groove and has mildly objected to girthing in everything I've used - fairfax, stubben equisoft, neoprene, sheepskin, string, the works. This is the only one she doesn't bat an eyelid at of everything I've used in 7 years!” J.R., on-line customer, on the English Stretchtec version
TSF cinches come up true to size (measurements are standard buckle end to buckle end). In judging your correct size we strongly recommend measuring buckle to buckle rather than going off the marked size - some girths can stretch, and the actual size may now be very different from when it was manufactured.
Available in black and brown, with black neoprene or natural fleece liner, and in sizes 26"-36”
We do not currently hold UK stock for the Western Cinch, we special order it from TSF to the customer's specific size/colour/liner specs. Orders are usually fulfilled within 2-4 weeks. Note that as custom orders Western Cinches are not returnable unless faulty.
In comparing our prices with ordering direct from TSF in the US, please recognise that our prices include the c.30% in VAT, duty and clearance fees that will be payable on importing an order shipped from the US.
With their anatomical shape, these cinches should be fitted so the central section under the horse's belly is forward of where it attaches to the saddle
