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
Flocked with 100% British wool.
A changeable gullet bar allows you or your saddle fitter to modify the width of the saddle’s gullet to suit the horse’s wither profile as the horse changes shape with either exercise, muscle development, maturity or rest. There are 8 options in the short S-bar and 7 in the long R-bar.
Wool is a natural fibre and provides superior softness and comfort for the horse because it moulds and settles quickly, giving optimum panel contact with the horse’s back. Two reinforced flocking slots make it easy for your saddle fitter to do any necessary adjustments to fit on-site
