Category: All Purpose Saddles
Purchase: I bought the Thorowgood Broadback saddle at Dover Saddlery in Hockessin, DE. I was looking to get back into English riding some and did not want to spend a ton of money on a new saddle. This particular saddle was a floor model that they had reduced the price on to $385 dollars from the original $549.
Likes: I absolutely love this saddle. You can really fit these saddles to any type of horse that you may be riding. The extra wide gullet that comes with the broadback fits my mare unbelievable well. Having the extra fish system to further enhance the fit is great. Also having extra flocking panels if necessary is wonderful. The movable knee blocks are nice for when I need to ride longer or shorter depending on what I am doing. It is a very comfortable saddle and definitely easier to fit than a Wintec.
Dislikes: Absolutely nothing. This was the best purchase I could have made.
Quality: The quality and construction is really good. I like that the billets are not overly long like the Wintec. I love being able to clean it very easily just like the Wintec because it is synthetic.
Summary: You can't ask for a better, more affordable saddle that you can customize to fit your horse.
