Have been a fan of the Weaver Smart cinches, with the roller buckles, for a long time. Have used the mohair string version for years. Last year I got the felt smart cinch and am very pleased with it as well. I like the string girths for their ease of cleaning. I just soak in wash water for a bit, rinse, hang to dry. They don’t hold onto the hair as much as other fabric girths it seems. So far, I just brush the hair off the felt. Haven’t actually tried washing it yet! I like the hold of the felt and the way it wears on the horse. I feel like it gives a little more comfort that the string girth.
Definitely recommend this girth. Cost was around $30. I think it’s available in black and brown, and in standard sizes only – probably 32″-38″. Does not come in draft, that I can find.
Oh, if not familiar with the smart cinch:
the trick is the roller buckles on the near side of the cinch. Off side is standard, but has a dandy deep keeper for the billet. Near side buckle has double bars, so if you double wrap you have one for each. Both bars have a roller that allows the latigo to ‘roll’ smoothly over, rather than slide/drag thru the buckle. Cinching up is so much smoother and causes less wear on the latigo. So far, no horses have commented on the difference the rollers make, but I think they’re great.
