What makes this cinch amazing?

  • Description
  • Customer Reviews

With a foundation rooted in the ultra-effective Shoulder Relief Cinch™, the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch™ brings the next level of intuition to functional cinches. It is hands downs the most technologically advanced cinch available. 


As you'd expect the, StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch 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.  Additionally, it has a one-of-a-kind patented (US Patent No. D843,666) triangular center elastic feature for additional performance. 


The triangular center elastic allows the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch™ to expand with the 1.5 cm chest expansion that horses experience while breathing. Its design also allows it to stretch in a more anatomically friendly way to contour better to a horse’s barrel and provide even contact through the sternum area.


The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch™ features our new “V-Stretch” D ring design that still allows all the functionality of a front and rear D ring, while allowing the center of the cinch to stretch. The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch™ also features a removable liner system to allow for easy cleaning of the liner, as well as the flexibility of swapping between liner materials (as we release more liner choices).


More recently the 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.


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 in your cart. 


Lastly, the shape of the Shoulder Relief Cinch also make it great for elbow comfort. The cutaways in the cinch pull it back away from the horse's elbow. 


The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Cinch is available in 26 – 36 inch sizes, in black and brown leather.

Best customer service and support

The item I ordered was not in stock and I was offered an upgrade -- First of all, the quality of their cinches are great - I love them! And while I am currently not sure if the stretch tech is for us after trying it one time, I was assured that I have 90 days to try and make sure that it works for us. I was blown away by this commitment to satisfaction. I'm looking forward to tryin the stretch tech again, and if I do decide that it's not for my horse, I know that I will be able to get a replacement. I want it to work, but I know that if it doesn't, I will get something that does! I love this company! In a world where it's hard to order horse tack online and know that it will work for you, Total Saddle Fit makes sure that you are satisfied and gives you the chance to make the informed choice. Couldn't recommend them more.

Nice Quality

Very well made! I look forward to trying in my horse. He is very short backed and other cinched push into his elbow. I would really like to have the option in the hopefully near future to be able to purchase a felt wool liner for this. Thanks for fast shipping. Very nice.

Love this cinch!

This cinch fits my horse perfectly and I am very happy with it

NEXT LEVEL COMFORT & MOVEMENT

STRETCHING CENTER

Triangular center elastic allows soft even contact while stretching with the 1.5 cm expansion of the diaphragm.

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/cinches is at the elbow. The cutback sides move the cinch away from horse’s elbow to alleviate this pressure.
