What makes this cinch amazing?

The patented (US Pat D917109) Shoulder Relief Cinch is the only one of its kind on the market.  It actually changes the angle and placement of the latigo on the horse to prevent the saddle from being pulled into the shoulder blades, resulting in a free shoulder and better saddle fit.  


You might be wondering, how?  The shape of the Shoulder Relief Cinch allows for the center of the cinch to sit in the horse's natural girth groove, while the sides are recessed backward and attach to the latigos farther back on the horse's body compared to a regular cinch.  This design makes the latigos more perpendicular to the ground and neutralizes forward pressure on the saddle (from the pull of the latigos).


More recently our cinch has been outfitted with the patent-pending Balance Buckle™. It is the strongest buckle on the market, made of 304 stainless steel - most other cinch buckles are plated iron. Functionally, the Balance Buckle™ is next level. The flat horizontal portions of the buckle keep the cinch evenly tightened on the horse's body. Since the Shoulder Relief Cinch is a unique shape, it really benefits from this feature.


Additionally, with the distinct shape of the Shoulder Relief Cinch, it is important to have the cinch centered over the horse's sternum. The Balance Buckle™ makes this a cinch ;) It has 2 latigo placements, which allow for fine tuning of the lateral position on the horse's barrel.  You can see this in a product video above.


Prefer a roller on your latigo side buckle?  We can do that for no extra charge!  Just ask for it in the "notes" section at checkout. 


On top of these functions, the shape of the Shoulder Relief Cinch also makes it great for elbow comfort. The cutaways in the cinch pull it back away from the horse's elbow. 


For the best durability and to prevent any stretching, the Shoulder Relief Cinch is fully backed with nylon webbing from end to end.  This gives the resilience of webbing with the look, touch and feel of leather.


Lastly, The Shoulder Relief Cinch uses a removable liner system.  You can choose between limestone neoprene, 100% wool felt or 100% wool fleece.  They simply peel on and off, so one cinch can be used with many liners.  A common practice is to keep 2 liners, so one can be in use while one is being washed. 


If you need even more comfort, there is also a StretchTec version of this Shoulder Relief Cinch available here: StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch


The Shoulder Relief Cinch is available in BLACK and BROWN leather in even sizes 24-36 inches.

I’m very happy with the cinch, but more importantly my horses love it. No more cinch galls. My mare that gets grumpy when the cinch is tightened, is much less so with this cinch.

So far so good

The quality is top of the line and the fit is excellent so far... I have yet to see if this will help keep my saddle in place while riding in the mountains on my mutton-withered mustang, but I have high hopes.

Best Cinch Ever

I completely love this cinch. Totally frees up the shoulder allowing for increased range of motion and increased comfort for the horse. Love that I can change the liner based on horse or discipline needs. I ordered with the black felted liner. Completely wondering why I waited so long to try it. Will be the only cinch I use moving forward.

NEXT LEVEL COMFORT & MOVEMENT

SHOULDER FREEDOM

Offset from center to buckles redirects the billet line to keep the saddle off the shoulders.

BALANCE BUCKLE

304 stainless steel make this the strongest buckle on the market, with endless fit capabilities. 

ELBOW COMFORT

Peak pressure in regular girths is at the elbow. The cutback sides move girth away from horse’s elbow to alleviate this pressure.

SO MANY LINERS

Choose between limestone neoprene, 100% wool felt or 100% wool fleece.  Liners peel and stick with velcro, enabling 10 second liner changes.
