Shearling vs Merino
Have you ever wondered what is the difference between the Professional's Choice Shearling Cinch or Girth and their Merino Wool? 🤔
Let's help give you an answer!
The main difference is the Shearling Cinch is true on the hind shearling. This has some pros and cons. A pro is it is a beautiful, luscious, soft cinch. Wonderful for sensitive horses. However, it is a high maintenance cinch and needs to be dried and cleaned after every ride, as sweat and dirt will start to eat away at the hind.
Merino Wool is sheared off the sheep and then spun to attached to the removable cinch liners. It is still breathable, comfortable and soft but easier to take care of.
Professional’s Choice does recommend washing both cinches in a bucket with mild-soap and to thoroughly rinse and hang to dry.
Check them out in both English and Western Styles.

The bit operates like a communication channel between rider and horse. As the mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of the horse's body it is important to treat it very carefully. A bit should be sized and fitted to the individual anatomic shape of the mouth as well as to its characteristic needs. The basic requirement for the correct bit choice is a healthy and properly trained horse.
