A Traditional Craft becomes an Art Form

In these informative two, three and four day hands-on workshops offered by Pop Wagner participants learn to make beautiful traditional mohair cinches. Materials for cinches are provided as well as the use of all necessary tools. Participants 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. Email Pop at if you would like an information packet on hosting a class.
