NRS has designed the flank to fit the contour of your horse’s barrel. Contouring the flank is very important to the team roping and calf roping horse. The horse is continually getting pressure from the flank and if you do not keep your it tight, your saddle will rock, causing your horse unnecessary pain. The new shape also keeps the whole cinch against the horse without gapping. Heavy skirting leather and lined with latigo. Stainless steel buckles with a seamless roller buckle that will not lock-up or breakdown. Includes hobble strap.
