Reinsman Tips about Proper Cinch Usage and Your Horse’s Comfort:
-Cinch the horse in stages, and we recommend using leather tie straps with a synthetic cinch to allow room for lung expansion.
-The front cinch should be about as tight as your belt – if it’s comfortable for you it should be comfortable for your horse.
-Do not overtighten the cinch because the tighter you cinch, the more pressure you create before you even sit in the saddle.
-While it’s tempting to overtighten a cinch for a saddle that rolls – don’t do it! Check that the saddle is the correct fit for the horse. Try a different saddle pad (make sure you aren’t over-padding), a wider cinch, neoprene cinch, or flank cinch to help secure the saddle.
