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

    Thorowgood T8 Dressage Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle I have had trouble fitting a 15H cob type paint mare that I have and I have tried many saddles and found two others that fit her fairly well. However, this saddle was MY favorite for it is the most comfortable, softest seat saddle, I have ever ridden in and very soft in the knee area as well. It fits my mare very well but I did have to use a wider gullet to get the fit I desired. The quality is very high don't be fooled by the price. It felt broken in on first ride and truly....I can't say anything negative about this saddle for it is worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice saddle! I test rode this saddle and loved it! The changeable gullet was easy to switch out to the correct one for my mare. The seat was very comfortable. The workmanship and materials are very high quality. I was very pleased with the saddle. So much so that I bought the T4 version (same saddle but all synthetic materials). It will be a great starter saddle for my dressage efforts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great economy saddle I have a hard to fit large pony that I've tried no less than 11 different saddle brands on, most with the company reps coming out to try and fit him. If we find one that appears to fit - it generally would slide forward on him despite various girth and pad combos. I love the options this saddle gives you for making it fit (moveable billets, changeable bullets that go REALLY wide) and my pony loves it period. He goes better in this than anything I've ridden him in in our 6 years together. I've had two saddlefitters out since buying it to confirm fit and both liked the saddle and thought it was good quality for the price and the wool flocking used was of good quality. It is very comfortable for me and the leather seems to be of good, durable quality. Note that the underside of the saddle is synthetic and not real leather.the blocks it comes with are quite big and as I like to ride with a slightly shorter stirrup than most dressagesaddles, they get in the way so I just took them off (yay for Velcro). Needless to say, I'm VERY happy with this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Saddle for The Price! I have had the T8 model for over three years now and really love it. I got mine brand new from a local saddle fitter who sold me on the adjustable tree, wool flocking, interchangeable billets and thigh block. Unfortunately, when I bought mine, the medium seat was the only option available instead of the deep seat available here (whick looks great). They are EXTREMELY comfortable saddles and look nicer than most in the same price range. In the near future I will be looking for another saddle to accommodate 3rd & 4th level work because I want a deeper seat and larger thigh blocks like the ones seen on the Trilogy saddles, but this is more of a "wanted upgrade" instead of a need.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
