For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Crest Ridge Saddlery
Model: Supra Cinch
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: Purchased online directly from Crest Ridge Saddlery. Cost was $61.35

Likes: I recently purchased a mutton withered 1/2 Arabian. After a month of trying different saddles, pads, breast collars, etc., I still couldn't keep a saddle from rolling. On top of that, the attempts of one well-meaning helper to get the thing "tight enough so it won't roll" resulted in making the horse quite girthy and she picked up a nasty habit of cow kicking when we tried to tighten the cinch. Then I found out about Crest Ridge's Supra Cinch. I've been using it for two weeks now. The saddle does hasn't rolled yet -- even when dismounting after a good ride, and Ceilidh has stopped cow kicking.

Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like about this cinch. Since it rigs a little differently than a standard cinch, Crest Ridge should include instructions with the cinch. Instructions are available on their Web site, but I imagine it would be hard to reference the Web site from the barn if you needed some instruction. One caveat for purchasers -- Crest Ridge warns not to use this cinch with in-skirt rigging. This wasn't an issue for me. However, I can see where it would be advisable to heed the warning. The cinch is X-shaped and hooks up kind of like a V-rigging, attaching to the front and rear cinch rings. Since the rear of the cinch tightens as tightly as the front, there is more pressure on the rear billet than there would be for a standard rear girth - hence the not wanting a rigging that could pull through the leather or pop a rivet.

Quality: The Supra Cinch is made of a double layer of heavy nylon that is then covered with cloth that is then coated with a layer of rubber/latex. The materials seem to be top-notch. It is well-stitched, and any stress points are reinforced. The long tie, off-side billets and straps included are all high-quality heavy grade nylon. I am very impressed with the quality of the Supra Cinch.

Summary: The bottom line is -- if you have a mutton withered horse and have had difficulty keeping a saddle upright -- or, if you have a problem with the saddle rolling when mounting or dismounting -- THIS IS THE CINCH for you.
