    Thumbs down But why is the cinch gone?

    OK, I think the Fugly ladies will pardon me for stealing this line but I really thought I'd seen it all until I saw this CL ad:

    Yes, you got it right, they're using the cinch as a breastplate. Can you say epic facepalm?
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

    What makes it worse is that it doesn't appear that there is any thing holding the saddle in place. So let's put our tiny child on a horse in a saddle that isn't attached to the horse. Yikes!

    Good grief.

    Tell you what, if you are looking for a bomb proof horse, I think you might have found it.

    I was thinking of the old time breast collars which were string cinches, only a bit modified. Not this, though.

    Did you send them an email explaining where they went wrong??

    Actually, I'm going out on limb here, instead of telling them how dumb they are (the owners, I mean), how about gently informing them of their epic fail and try to help them, show them the way?? Obviously, they don't know what they are doing. If nothing else, you might have planted a seed so they start to try to learn about saddling. Then again, you might get cursed out, but at least you tried to help in a non-threatening way.

    where would you start?
    if they've actually been riding the horse in the cinch-less saddle and "a rein", no bridle, he's probably a saint of a horse. Go buy him.

    This is what I was thinking. What a good horse!

    I'm not a big fan of them, but there ARE some Colombian breastcollars that look just like a cinch. https://www.kudastore.com/index.php?...category_id=15

    The Paso trainers that use them usually place them high, right where the neck meets the chest and it always looks like a choking hazard to me. However they DO use a girth on their saddles. Hopefully someone upgrades the Saintly Pony soon.
