We are proud to offer this product. We use mohair cord produced right here in south africa to weave our own cinches. The buckles are made from stainless steel & they are also a product of our hands. What makes mohair such a perfect fit for a cinch, is that it wicks away sweat form your horse, allowing it to evaporate & not build up. The build up would chafe your horse’s softer sides & belly. Renowned as the diamond fiber, it is very tough & holds some elasticity too. They are easy to clean and maintain.
