The 5 Star 100% Mohair Y-Cinch “Cutter” is a great cinch for Barrel Racing, Campdrafting, Cutting, Trail Riding and General Training where work loads are not being placed on the horn of the saddle.
A Y-Cinch “Cutter” cinch is a unique combination of the both the Front & Back Cinch in one application. This Y-Cinch is a unique design of 5 Star products is designed to eliminate the pressure off the back of the rib cage and stomach barrel of the horse. Traditionally the standard rear cinch when tightened enough to hold the back of the saddle down, constricts the horses ability to expand the rib cage when breathing deeply whilst performing.
The Y-Cinch “Cutter” brings all the pressure forward to where the front cinch already is, and therefore the back of the saddle is stabilized with no pressure on the rib cage or stomach barrel. This added comfort could bring that extra edge when performing at events.
The Y-Cinch “Cutter” offers the same amount of mohair strands as a “roper” but the cutter offers the comfort of double layered mohair and has less cinch area coverage than a “roper” cinch, allowing for improved cooling around the cinch 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 draw heat away from your horse, while also absorbing moisture/ sweat away from your horses sensitive cinch area, keeping them cooler and dryer under cinch. They 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 Y-Cinch Cutter is a popular choice amongst many horsemen and horsewomen who compete in Barrel Racing, Reining, Cutting, Trail Riding and General training with their horses or like the concept of the double layers strands creating added comfort for the horse and covers less of the horse enabling premium cooling of the cinch area.

There are two styles that 5 Star Y-Cinches come in, both the Cutter (straight) & Roper (Wide) Style. The 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.
