Cinch Making Class at Pendleton Cattle Barons
April 27 @ 9:00 am - April 28 @ 4:00 pm MDT$700
Limited to 12 participants, no previous experience necessary!
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).
We will cover stringing 17 and 19 strand straight cinches, weaving in center dee 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!
