Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle brand new from Greenhawk (Canada). I have a VERY hard to fit middle aged Quarter Horse who is wide, but has high withers. I have bought and sold a dozen saddles in the past 5 years and could never get the right fit. I have also bought and sold both Wintec and HDR synthetic saddles, and prefer the Thorowgood because of its superior fit for my horse, quality and comfort for the rider.
Likes: I LOVE the fish system that allows you to change the gullet to different widths. The faux suede seat and knee & thigh blocks make the saddle feel very secure.
Dislikes: The actual synthetic material is a bit slippery, but very comparable to Wintec & HRD sythetic material. Thorowgood has introduced a T6 model with material that offers better grip and feels more like real leather, but at the time of my purchase the T6 was not yet available in the high wither model.
Quality: The saddle is wool stuffed and excellent quality.
Summary: This saddle is not just for narrow, high withered horses. It fit my wide high withered horse like a glove! I very highly recommend this saddle to anyone that stuggles fitting a high withered horse!
