I rode Western in the age of dinosaurs, tell me about newer cinches, padding, elastic
Just what it says. I'd like to switch to a newfangled possibly more comfortable cinch from my double ringed string cinch - see my Horse care post on Girthy horse. Unfortunately I am overwhelmed by the number of choices out there - felt, neoprene, mesh.
Can you help me pick something out, and tell me if this cinch I'm using is riding too high - it's just behind the top of the stirrup - and is the saddle too far forward, cinch too far forward etc..
Apologize in advance if I haven't got the settings to public - I may have to get the DD to fix that.
