Base Wrap + Cinch:
This wrap is the base wrap plus a wrap around the cinch area. This wrap helps horses that are cinchy or sensitive about their sides being touched. It is great training for the horse that hasn’t been saddled.
You need to make sure that the cinch wrap is on tight or it will slip back toward the belly as the horse moves. When a horse is flinchy in his flank area I actually place a wrap around the belly, sort of like a back cinch, to help desensitize and massage them.
Attach the cinch wrap’s Velcro at the withers, wrap it around the horse’s barrel in the girth area and tie it off at the withers on the opposite side at the neck wrap’s bowline knot. If not tied tight, this wrap may slide back toward the flank area.
Note: If your horse continues to be “cinchy” after several sessions of using this wrap I would consult a chiropractor. Your horse may be out of alignment in the withers, rib or back area.
