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.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! My old saddle was stolen several years ago. This saddle is well worth the wait! I love it! The leather on the seat and knee rolls is made from soft quality leather which is really nice. Overall it is a beautiful saddle that puts me in the correct position. My instructor is also impressed with this saddle. Great buy and great price. Thanks Smartpak!

    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.
