The 31 strands of Mohair blend cinch cord these equine girths are made of will maximize air circulation while wicking away sweat. A Dennis Moreland cinch won’t become slippery or stretch like manmade materials such as neoprene and polypropylene. Because these cinches are naturally breathable, stay cool and don’t slip they will not gall or rub sores on a horse and you won’t need to over tighten them. This puts these girths at the top for performance and comfort. The 31 strands of natural hand tied cord feel better to a horse than the average 27 strand western cinch.
