Purchase: I bought this 36" tuffy western cinch around 1994 for 40.00$ Canadian. I ordered it from a tack store, suggested by the clerk. I'm a heavyweight long distance trail woman(200lbs+) that needs a sturdy cinch and gear. I must admit, this cinch is the best I've ever used, and I've been riding for 30+ years! It is ribbed underneath and a nylon strip on the outside. It has suede material under both rings. To put it in perspective, I have only used this cinch on all my saddles, and all my horses, that I have owned, since 1994! I compete in long distance competitions seasonally, and have ridden my horses every single year since 1994! the cinch is in very good condition to date,(2012). one would never think it has been in use for 18 years. To clean it, I hose it off and in the spring, and use a brush to comb out the ribbed stitching of shed hair, then hose it through the rest of the season. I have not had a problem with cinch sores throughout it's use, and the neoprene surface has held up remarkably including the outer edges. This cinch is a single unit, with no removable parts. I have a 15 lb. Endurance saddle that I can get on easily, with no slipping, mounting from the ground on a 16hh horse, and I am 200+ lbs!! That quality in itself is priceless!! I can't say enough about this cinch, I love it! I have the wide version, as there is regular and wide styles. All cinches of all types sweat underneath, and my opinion is, it's the rest of your tack and pad(s) that contribute to the heat factor more than the cinch, Buy this cinch!
Likes: Durable, easy to mount horse, easy to clean, excellent life expectancy!
Quality: As stated above- top quality
Summary: No need for any other cinch, unless you want a smaller length
