Learn the fundamentals of cinch making from the 2018 cinch maker of the year, Tia Watson.
In this class we will learn the basics of building 17 strand cinch, proper tension and construction with the main focus being the comfort of the horse. We will go over how to measure out correct cordage for the body of the cinch (8 ply) and how to calculate design detail footage (2 ply). All knots and tying techniques will be gone over. We will cover how to properly measure a horse for cinch fit, go over different types of Cinches and saddle riggings and how to pick the correct cinch type for saddle rigging/ horse body type.
This class will include all materials to construct one 17 strand cinch, a loom, specialty tools needed to build Cinches and a set of instructions with “the basics” to help you along. What you’ll need to bring to class is a cloth tape measure, a sharp pair of scissors, a note book and a pen or pencil for note taking.
Extra materials will be available for purchase at the class.
Proceeds go to the Fellowship Program.
