Shoulder Relief Cinch Western – Black Neoprene

Traditional Cinch Saddle Placement

When you walk next to your horse you will see his shoulder moving as he reaches his leg forward. His scapula actually rotates backward as the front leg moves forward. This is due the location where the soft tissue attaches to the scapula. Traditional (straight) cinches bring the saddle too far forward causing the saddle to block the natural movement of the shoulder.

This is due to a basic physics problem: the cinch pulls the latigos forward, which then pulls the whole saddle into the shoulders.


Shoulder Relief Cinch™ Saddle Placement

Due to the natural movement of the horse, he actually needs an additional 1-2 inches of clearance. The Shoulder Relief Cinch™ is designed with a 2 inch offset to allow maximum shoulder clearance from the saddle tree. It fixes the physics problem by utilizing the offset in the cinch to redirect the billet line and prevent the saddle from being pulled forward.

In addition to the offset design, there is also additional elbow clearance with the cutback feature.
