Overview

Why We Love This

The Thorowgood T4 Cob Dressage Saddle is tailor-made to allow the broader horse to work in comfort. Three different girthing options ensure total saddle security. Close-contact panels enable the clear transmission of leg aids, making this the best solution for the low withered horse doing flatwork. The tree is made from lightweight but sturdy polycarbonate. Comes with a large moveable block to help you train your leg into a longer more secure position. Luxurious suede-effect seat covering and knee pads are non-slip and really comfortable to ride on. Flocked with 100% British wool.

Thorowgood T4 Cob Dressage Saddle is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Great saddle for a short backed wide Arabian. This saddle is terrific for a short backed wide Arabian. It fits him great and is very comfortable. Customer service was so helpful and answered all my questions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Interesting In the end it did not fit but I was pleased with how easy it was to change the gullet bar. The saddle is light weight and easy to carry. The panels were longer than I needed and the gullet was too narrow, even with the wide bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort for both horse and rider I have been using this saddle for a number of years. Mine burned in the Valley fire so I am looking for a replacement. I have used it for trail, endurance, dressage and basic training. I love this saddle. The gullets are easy to change and you can get it reflocked for your new horse if necessary -- or just if it has compacted over time. I highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great expectations Cob fit and adjustable gullet seemed like the perfect combination but I was not able to get the gullet plate my wide horse needed. I had to send it back -free shipping- untested.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fit my horse, not me Bought this in a test ride - I have a draft cross mare who is tough to fit. I have a Bates Isabelle and even with a riser system and adjustable gullet I can't get a good fit. When it fits her, the saddle tips forward. When I level the saddle, it's too small in the front. I had good luck with Thorowgood high wither for a different horse, so decided to try the Cob style for my mare. 1. Fit on the horse's back was wonderful. She was very happy 2. Close contact is an understatement. I felt like I was bareback. If that's your goal, that's great, but this saddle has no support for the rider - it's like the jockey version of a dressage saddle - which is not what I'm looking for. 3. The seat is very, very small. My Isabelle is an 18" and a perfect fit for me - the T4 17.5" (despite the seat having no depth to speak of) was at least two inches too small. So if you're looking for a larger seat you will be disappointed. Just as an FYI, on the T4 the suede part of the flap will eventually pill with wear and riding, but overall Thorowgood is a good quality for an inexpensive saddle, especially if your horse has a difficult to fit conformation and you don't want to spend the money on Custom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice saddle but fit was off I have been looking high and low for a saddle that fits my mutton withered Arab and when I saw this saddle was a "cob" saddle I was excited, I though it was more of a "hoop" shape saddle that would accommodate his shoulders and the reviews I red were good so I bought the trial saddle and the widest gullet they had. Sadly even though this is beautiful, and very comfortable, even the wide gullet was not wide enough. It was no different than my extra wide colliget CC. The flocking is way too thick and the saddle just sat on top of his back. I did however tack him up so I could at least sit on it. I wish I could have kept it but several days latter I lucked apon a new/used extra wide courbette AP with the flextree that my boy just loves and moovs out verry nicely in. I would still recommend this saddle, it is one of the best synthetic saddles I have ever seen and was so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Grippy, Very Comfortable I've had this saddle for a couple of weeks. I love it! It's so easy to change out the gullet bar! The seat is very grippy, but doesn't make me feel held in place. It's a great fit for my haflinger and my curly. I love that the billets are so easy to adjust as well. I'm so happy I chose this saddle. My ponies seem to like it too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my Haflinger After trying many different options, this is the saddle that fit. The extra wide billet worked best for my Haflinger. The saddle is also extremely comfortable for long trail rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FInally a happy horse Thank you Thorowgood! My appendix Qh and grade gelding both like this saddle. They are both differently conformed and I wanted to be able to have happy rides in one saddle. Tall order, I know! The cob design fits my broad qh and I can still use nice saddle pads, not have to pair down to the skinniest one I can find. I add a shim for my more slender fellow and all is perfect. They go and slow well,backs come up and are happy fellows.
