Solutions: Shoulder- relief cinch.
If you feel your saddle slide forward onto your horse’s shoulder while you’re riding, or if your cinch limits his elbow movement, consider trying a new cinch like the Shoulder- Relief Cinch from Total Saddle Fit. The cinch’s sides are cut back to better meet with your saddle’s billets to improve saddle fit and keep your saddle in place. This allows your latigo to stay upright rather than angle forward. Another bonus: the cinch’s removable liner is easy to clean and can be swapped with neoprene, fleece, or felt liners.
