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.
