We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Thorowgood R Gullet Set is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of choices I got the wide and wide/extra wide gullets for a test ride saddle (Thorowgood T8 Dressage). I am glad there are so many gullet sizes to choose from. The wide/extra wide gullet fit perfectly. I used the measuring chart for the gullet and it proved to be very accurate. They are not easy to change though. I had to have my husband help me and I'm usually a "do it myself" kind of gal!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picture wrong Picture shows all sizes but all sizes not carried by SmartPak. So, did not fit my horse could not get the last two larger sizes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product Very easy to change gullets and it comes with good instructions
    Date published: 2016-11-28
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from an issue with website on interchangeable trees Even though I've written a rave reviews about the saddle that these trees are used for ... BEWARE when you order the trees that go in it! You will definitely need to speak with a Smartpak rep when you order these! The picture is misleading and there are not enough sizes to correspond with the picture on the website. Still a great product but make sure you also receive the correct tree marked in the bag! I love Smartpak and choose them over any other retailer in the horse industry. But they need to address this problem once and for all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to switch I found it very easy to switch the gullet on my thorowgood high wither saddle; it took maybe 5 minutes in the cross tie. The new size fits my horse well, though it does require shimming to keep it off her giant wither.
