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'!).

Why We Love This

The Thorowgood T4 Compact Saddle is ideal for shorter backed, croup high or flat backed horses.  It is also a great option for the petite rider on a large pony/small horse.  Compared to other saddles, the Thorowgood T4 Compact GP Saddle is compact for its size, has a neat seat, slimmer rear gussets and the tree is shorter and slightly flatter on the underside.

Made in the UK

  • Luxurious suede-effect seat covering and knee pads are non-slip and really comfortable to ride on

    Thorowgood T4 Compact Saddle is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice saddle, but didn't like the suede-like seat The saddle was well built and fit my horse well. However, I didn't like the suede-like seat. The sticky seat may be nice, but I could see it collecting dirt very easily and hard to clean off. If it had been a regular smooth seat, I probaby would have kept it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from T4 Thorowgood Saddle Fits Horse I bought this saddle for my shark fin OTTB. It fir him nicely but wasn't so comfortable for me. The seat was too deep and was not a good match for me. The saddle also squeaks and I dislike that.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very comfortable seat. It was not as compact in length as expected as it was too long on my short-backed horse.
    Date published: 2015-11-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing saddle! This saddle is amazing very durable great with jumping and I love the changeable gullet system! It's just a all around amazing saddle I like it more than the WinTec 500. It seems more sturdy and durable. Would i'm in the saddle to anyone who has a young horse that's changing wither & back sizes and growing, and it is so comfortable for the rider and horse! Can't say enough good things about this saddle.
