Changeable Gullet System

Pioneers in an accessible saddle changeable gullet system, Thorowgood comes with is easily-recognised colour-coded gullet system.  There are 7 widths of the R-Bar and 8 widths of the S-Bar. 

There is often confusion with which gullet bar is needed fora Thorowgood saddle, including the confusion between what is the difference between and S Bar and an R Bar?

The  gullet bar is simply the coloured piece of metal that is interchangeable in order to change the size of your saddle fit.  The shorter S-Bar is to fit the square cantle ranges that have lower-headed trees and shorter points.  The longer R-Bar is for the round cantle ranges with high-headed trees and longer points.* 

The Thorowgood gullet bar colours are:

Silver:  Extra ExtraWide Fitting

Yellow:  ExtraWide/Extra Extra Wide Fitting

White: Extra Wide

Orange: Wide/Extra Wide

Red: Wide

Blue: Medium/Wide

Black: Medium

Green:  Narrow/Medium
