Mohair Cinch Making Fundamentals Online

 *Enrollment is currently closed*

In this “work at your own pace” online course, you will be able to learn techniques that are applicable to building single layer straight cinches with hand-woven centers, pony or draft sized cinches, breast collars, and other projects.

In-Person Cinch Classes

We will cover stringing 17 and 19 strand straight cinches, weaving in center D-rings, weaving basic detail work and shapes, calculating 8-ply and detail cord, mapping designs out, and also breast collars and English girths if there is interest. We will also go over cinch-fit on live horses, as well as discussing the pros and cons of different cinch types! Our goal is to equip you with a strong foundational knowledge of cinch construction, so you are comfortable and confident in your ability to build high-quality gear that will last!

Included: a set of our cinch measurement cards, materials for two cinches, tools (yours to keep). You may opt to borrow a frame, bring your own if you already have one, or build your own ahead of time (sources for information on building your own will be provided upon class registration).
