Thorowgood saddles are the brand that produce the legendary T4 synthetic horse saddles and the T8 part leather, part synthetic saddles that offer numerous benefits and have gained huge popularity among riders worldwide.

  1. Material and Construction: Thorowgood saddles are exceptionally well made from high-quality leathers and synthetic materials, typically incorporating durable and lightweight materials such as synthetic suede. They are crafted with attention to detail and feature modern designs that cater to both horse and rider comfort.

  2. Versatility: One of the key advantages of Thorowgood saddles is their versatility. They are designed to fit a wide variety of horses, thanks to their adjustable gullet system. This system allows riders to change the width of the saddle to suit different horse widths and conformations, ensuring a correct fit and optimal comfort for the horse.

  3. Easy Maintenance: Synthetic saddles, like those from Thorowgood, tend to be quite light in weight making them perfect for children or smaller adults and are relatively easy to maintain compared to traditional leather saddles. They are water-resistant, making them suitable for use in various weather conditions, and they can be cleaned with mild soap and water. The synthetic materials used in their construction also tend to be more resistant to wear and tear, offering a longer lifespan compared to some leather saddles.

  4. Affordability: Thorowgood saddles are often considered more affordable than their high-end leather counterparts. This makes them an attractive option for riders who want a reliable and well-fitting saddle without breaking the bank.

  5. Comfort and Performance: Thorowgood saddles are designed with the comfort of both the horse and the rider in mind. They often feature deep seats and cushioned panels to provide a secure and comfortable riding experience. The materials used offer grip and support, contributing to better rider stability and improved horse-rider communication.

  6. Popularity: Thorowgood saddles have gained popularity among riders of various disciplines, including dressage, jumping, eventing, and general-purpose riding. They are well-regarded for their affordability, adjustability, and durability.

    Thorowgood has established a strong presence in the equestrian community and has garnered a loyal following throughout Europe.


When considering purchasing a saddle, it's essential to try it out and ensure it fits both you and your horse correctly. Each rider and horse combination is unique, so personal preference and fit should always be taken into account.
