*Wicks moisture away from the horse preventing many common skin issues.
Cleaning is simple;
just use a stiff brush to brush away dirt occasionally. If the cinch is very dirty, you can simply rinse it gently in a bucket of water. You want to rinse out the dirt and salt buildup, but don’t try to get all the horsehair out. The horses’ hair fills up the cracks in the cinch cords, and felts with the mohair to make the cinch even more comfortable to the horse. After you wash a cinch, lay it out to dry. After it dries it may shrink a bit, but it will stretch out again with use.
When selecting a cinch for your horse, care should be taken in selecting material that is comfortable for the horse, as well as durable. It is easy to overlook the importance of a comfortable cinch. When a cinch is uncomfortable, it can start or exacerbate ‘cinchy’ problems.
