The “Roper” is very popular and is a great cinch for Team Roping, Steer Wrestling, Ranch / work horses, Trail Riding and pack horses where extra pressure may be put on the horn or top side of the saddle, therefore increasing the pressure on the underside of the horse.
A wider “Roper” cinch will assist in evening out and dispersing the pressure over a wider area of the cinching area. 5 Star Cinches are made from ONLY the finest quality 100% Pure Mohair, and therefore provide all the properties and qualities associated with all natural Wool.
The 5 Star cinches are breathable and remove heat away from your horse, while also drawing moisture/ sweat away from your horses sensitive cinch area, keeping them cooler and dryer under cinch.
5 Star cinches are proven to protect your horses against cinch soring / galling of the cinch area and do not trap heat like other cinches that are made with & contain synthetic materials.
All Buckles are Flat Hardware which prevents the horse’s skin from rolling & pinching, as often happens with round or rolled buckles.
The Roper is a popular choice amongst many horsemen and horsewomen who Team Rope, perform ranch / work duties with their horses or like the concept of dispersing the cinching pressure over a wider area.

There are two styles that 5 Star Cinches come in, both the Cutter (straight) & Roper (Wide) Style. These 100% Mohair Cinches offer your horse the natural benefits to work with your horse offering comfort, breathable & cooling factors.
The natural benefits of Mohair are that it helps to keep the animal cooler and dryer under the cinch area, the cinches are breathable, reduced heat build-up, and are proven to reduce cinch soring & sweat galls.
The Soft & Natural feel of the mohair are also beneficial for the horse, as it provides more comfort for the horse and has assisted many horses with sensitive or “girthy” cinch issues. Flat Buckle Hardware is used on all 5 Star Cinches and this keeps the horse’s flesh from “rolling over” and pinching as with roller and round hardware. All of these benefits can be the key to finding that extra edge for riding performance.

Cinch Design & Construction
Cinch cord is an 8-ply, 100% Mohair cord. The cord is hand laced onto stainless steel or brass flat buckles and rings. Mohair has been known for years to have the same therapeutic and comfort value as 100% wool felt.
5 Star uses Flat Buckle Hardware in Stainless Steel or Brass. We use the finest saddle hardware available. The Flat Hardware keeps the horse’s flesh from “rolling over” and pinching as with roller and round hardware.
