    Default English/Western girth/cinch sizes

    Does anyone know approximately what size western cinch my horse would use? He generally uses a 48" English girth; about 880 lbs, 14.2 average QH build...

    I got the cinch on my western saddle so long ago that I can't remember what size it is, and I don't know how to measure it... but need to get a new straight cinch since my horse hates the roper style. (:

    Thanks! Hmm, it seems to lean toward a 32, but I might be okay with a 30... hmm.

    My mare wears a 48" english girth, her western cinch is a 30". Both are Professionals Choice. She has gained weight and could probably go with a 50" and 32", but the others fit fine for now. I love the Professionals Choice girth/ cinch.
