What Customers Say:
Thorowgood T4 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far! I ordered the saddle on trial but did not know I had to order stirrup leathers. I ordered but I received after my trial ended. I finally got to actually sit in it and walk around yesterday and I think I'm going to enjoy it. I just need some help with making sure it fits my Self & my horse correctly, the stirrup length, girth tightness etc. And how to ride in this saddle. I've been a bareback or western girl). So far it felt great though. I need to also get the correct saddle pad. Any advice?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Synthetic Saddle I bought this while on the search to find a saddle that fit my new, young OTTB. I was originally not looking for a synthetic saddle, but once I got it and sat in it, I was amazed (plus it actually fit my horse)! It has a deep seat and the movable blocks are bigger than anticipated. The saddle does keep your legs in place. The saddle is not slippery at all. It has suede in just the right places. Plus, it's VERY comfy! It's already gotten rained on and after wiping it down with a regular towel it looks brand new again. Unlike the T8, the bottom of the T4 is a thicker material, which looks more durable, in my opinion. The only thing I've found I don't like about the saddle is that it seems to have a wide twist. I've gotten many compliments on the saddle, even from people who don't like synthetic saddles. If you're on the fence about ordering this saddle, give it a try through the test ride program, you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Excellent quality for this price. Fits well to my horse. Have it already 2 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conforms to horse and comfy for me I wanted a light-weight saddle that fit my OTTB and was comfortable for me and on the cheaper end since it isnt leather. This dressage saddle checks all the boxes. The suede on seat and knee roll gives extra stick and it is such a comfortable deep seat. It helps to put the rider into a correct dressage position. I'm happy with what I got for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I've ridden in this saddle a few times now. It has a deep seat, that puts the rider effortlessly into a correct dressage position. It is lightweight which I was looking for and it fits my OTTB nicely! I'm happy with it and hoping for many years in this saddle!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, lightweight, easy care saddle! So lightweight, correct and just lovely. Such a great bargain. For riders who work outdoors in all weather, or those who simply prefer to spend time riding rather than cleaning leather tack, the Thorowgood T4 dressage saddle is a wonderful choice! Super comfortable. Love the knee blocks; nicely supportive, not restrictive. (only gave 4 stars for durability because we haven't used it long and I don't know).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life so easy! Love my new saddle! Super lightweight and so comfy for both me and my horse!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking saddle with good features But.... This was an very nice looking saddle, but I could not make it work for my horses. Could not get the gullets that are in their photo ( two largest sizes ) due to SmartPak not carrying them. Go figure! The saddle also was narrower in the gullet in the middle of the saddle. Should be the same all the way down and only three fingers wide. So it bridged on my horses. Probably need the cob Thorowgood dressage saddle, but once again SmartPak does not carry it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not for horses with wide backs My Andalusian/paint cross mare has average withers but is very wide and round down the spine. I tried the medium tree, but the gullet pannels did not clear the supraspinous ligament, and bridged where she dips a bit after the withers. My friend has this same saddle on her warmblood mare with more of an A-framed back and loves this saddle. Too bad it didn't work for my horse--loved the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome customizable saddle for a great price I waffled back-and-forth between purchasing a WinTec and this saddle. After reading many reviews, and trying a couple of wintecs from my own barn, I decided to give this saddle a try. I am so glad that I did. It is a beautiful saddle and the quality is very obvious from the moment you get it out of the box. I would caution that the Gullet sizing on this brand is different and runs smaller than the WinTec. Because they have such a large range for so many sizes and shapes of horses ( high, low normal wither, and normal thin and wide all with sizing in each category) you really should download the sizing guide from their website and trust it! After riding this saddle for a few months I can tell you it is very comfortable for both me and my girl and keeps me in the correct position. Where can you get such a custom fit for this price? Totally recommend
