A Traditional Craft becomes an Art Form

In this informative five hour hands-on workshop offered by

Pop Wagner participants learn to make a beautiful traditional mohair cinch. All materials for the cinch are provided as well

as the use of all necessary tools. Participants also receive a detailed set of instructions for making a basic cinch and plans for a cinch loom and loom stand. These instructions also indicate where one can order additional materials for cinch making.

Traditional mohair cinches are strong, resistant to dirt and will not sore a horse if properly fitted. Besides that, they are beautiful to look at and offer nearly endless possibilities of design.
