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 T4 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saddle! I am thrilled with this saddle and so is my mare! We recently started taking dressage lessons. As someone who'd never had formal lessons before and was used to riding in an endurance saddle with a very secure seat, the grippy texture of the T4 really appealed to me. The seat is very comfortable and, although it's different than what I'm used to, I feel quite secure. I love how lightweight the saddle is and how easy it is to clean after a ride - I just wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. The changeable gullet was a very valuable feature. My mare needed a wider one than the standard medium that came with it. It was easy to change out and both my trainer and I believe it fits her well. The contact is amazing - I can actually feel her back for the first time! The materials seem to be of very good quality and the wool flocking is a plus in case her saddle fitter needs to make any adjustments. I'm looking forward to using this saddle for many years to come!
