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 T8 Dressage Saddle incorporates quality leather on seat, knee pads and trim to give the feel of riding on an all leather saddle. The dressage specific tree and moveable under-flap thigh blocks combine to help the rider maintain a balanced dressage position.

    Thorowgood T8 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saddle I tried this out as a test saddle. I had to go to the wide/extra wide gullet to fit my horse. It was too deep a seat for me but fit my horse wonderfully. The gullet is not easy to change but is doable. I had to get my husband to help me. Nice workmanship on saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has been a great saddle for a hard to fit OTTB! Our fitter recommended this saddle to us and we are so glad she did. It was in our budget and was able to be adjust for an OTTB with uneven shoulders and very high withers! We have had it for a year now and it still looks new...ridden in 4-5 times a week.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thorowgood dressage saddle excellent fit for my horse and me. However, tchanging out the gullet is VERY difficult!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice saddle for price point This is a very nice saddle and looks WAY better in person then in photos. The leather portion is supper soft and buttery. The synthetic area is no where near as stiff as other synthetic brands. And I love that the gullet sizes go larger then wintec. I was VERY disappointed that it did not fit my horse and i ended up having to send it back. However i would most definitely recommend this saddle to anyone who is on a budget or needs a saddle with changeable gullet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and great fit for both of us. I rode the test ride saddle and it fit her perfectly. She is a Tennessee Walking Horse that has virtually no withers anymore and is quite broad. We put in the wide gullet and it was perfect! The leather seat makes it feel and look like a much more expensive saddle. Can't wait for mine to get here -- it is on back order. I would highly recommend this for a less expensive option.
