    Thorowgood T8 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought this 20 years ago.... This saddle was recommended to me by a saddle fitter who sadly told me my semi-custom German brand saddle did not fit me and probably never did. I've been riding in the Thorowgood for 3 weeks and feel more secure and my horse is much more responsive to my aids. This will be the last saddle I will ever need.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings The saddle's panels are much softer than a wintec and I loved the different billeting options. Didn't quite fit my horse and multiple people could not get the gullet plate out to try a different one, so I did not keep it. I ordered a test ride version and it arrived in like new condition

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gullet not easy... Overall, I returned as it did not fit my horse. The panels were much softer than on a wintec I had previously owned. I liked being able to move the billets. As the saddle did not fit I attempted to change the gullet. Even with assistance, I was unable to get the saddle apart in order to install a different plate.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! Very comfortable, good fit for both my horse and I. Lots of compliments from people about how nice the saddle is! Looks and rides like a more high end saddle!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value This is a really nice saddle for the price. I live in the middle of nowhere, and could not get a saddle fitter out to fit my ISH mare. I ordered this saddle with a few of the different gullets, and had a saddle to ride in within days. I actually ordered it as a demo, but the saddle looked completely untouched when I got it. I had to order an additional gullet to get a good fit, but my mare is much happier now for our flat work. The saddle is fairly comfortable but will require some breaking in before I decide if it really works for us. Great quality, I am very happy with the purchase.
