All THOROWGOOD Saddles SHOULD be FITTED by a Society of Master Saddler's Registered Qualified Saddle Fitter to ensure it is fitted correctly. Please see our Saddle Fitting Services for details of charges and appointments. If you live more than 40 miles from postcode DL159HA please contact us before placing an order to avoid disappointment. If you are outside our area we will endeavor to put you touch with another SMS Fitter who is a Thorowgood Stockist.
If you order a saddle this will simply reserve the saddle (or contribute towards a saddle) for you. Our SMS Fitter will then contact you to make an appointment to bring out a selection of saddles including the saddle of your choice. The sale will be completed by our SMS Saddle Fitter with yourself once they are happy with the fit. This allows for any adjustments to be made on site and ensures your saddle is correctly fitted.
DON'T FORGET TO ORDER YOUR GULLET R BAR (priced separately) WHEN ORDERING.
We will fit the R-Bar of your choice. Widths from Narrow/Medium to Extra Wide Available.
This is a universal fitting saddle with an open-headed tree and a broad panel design that interfaces well with most conformations. Cut far enough forward to allow for jumping as well as schooling and hacking.
However, the new Thorowgood T8 Anatomic GP is bursting with features that both horse and rider will appreciate. The new and patented panel design eliminates the part of the panel which can restrict the shoulder and replaces it with a versatile double knee block system.
The first advantage is that the horse does not have the panel restricting its shoulder, so the horse is able to move more freely.
The second is that the saddle will stay still, even during big shoulder movements. On a conventional saddle, pressure at the front transmits to movement at the rear of the panel, causing instability for both rider and horse.
Thirdly, as the Thorowgood T8 Anatomic GP’s under support blocks come in two different depths (standard and thin), and are easily inter-changeable, it provides a solution for horses with very large shoulders as well as enabling the rider to sit symmetrically on a horse with asymmetric shoulders!
As with all Thorowgood saddles, it features SimaTree brand changeable gullet bars and adjustable girthing options, which further enable the fit to be customised for a wide variety
