Beaver Valley Fiber Arts believe that good looking and well-made tack contributes to your pride in your horse and horsemanship.Located on the eastern slopes of the Washington State Cascades, Diane makes hand-woven and tied cinches and breast collars, using primarily 100% mohair from the Angora goat. Mohair has great tensile strength, and doesn’t stretch or weaken when wet. Mohair wicks moisture away from your horse, helping to keep the cinch area cool and comfortable. Mohair cinches are very beneficial to horses that are “cinchy” or prone to cinch galls. You will find that a mohair cinch doesn’t get stiff when dirty and is very easy to clean.
Diane also produce some cinches in.. Alpaca, a very soft feeling fiber.
The cinches Diane creates are one of a kind, and she works with a variety of buckles, patterns and colors in an attempt to provide for the rider’s personal preference while satisfying her desire to produce unique pieces. She produces cinches of both single and double layers and varying widths depending on your personal preference and your saddle rigging. She generally has cinches on hand from 28″ in length to 36″. She uses American made hardware whenever possible and American raised mohair. Diane thinks it is important that this very Western Tradition of hand-made gear continues with products made there.
