Kind to Your Horse

We love lightweight and comfy Thorowgood saddles, available in a range of different designs to fit a wide variety of conformations. Thorowgood saddles are made with synthetic material for easy care, with flocked panels that can be adjusted by a saddle fitter. All Thorowgood saddles are compatible with a changeable gullet system, which allows the rider to quickly and easily adjust the width of the saddle at the pommel by exchanging gullet plates.

The Thorowgood T8 Compact GP is a versatile all-purpose saddle with a super-comfy deep seat and fully adjustable knee and calf blocks. The Compact GP is designed to appeal to petite riders or those with narrower hips, compared to the Original GP saddle. The profile of this saddle is designed to fit medium wither heights, as well as horses that are short or flat backed, or croup high. Saddles in the T8 range incorporate quality leather on the seat, knee pads, and trim, with synthetic skirts and flaps.

Colors: Black, Brown
Sizes: 16.5″, 17″, 17.5″, 18″

An eighth size, XXW, is available only for saddle models compatible with “S,” or short-length bars.

Thorowgood Airoform Jumping Girth

$41.99

Thorowgood’s award-winning Airoform Jumping or GP girth is gently curved for a snug, contoured fit. The Airoform cushioning keeps its shape no matter how much you use it and eliminates pinching of the sensitive skin behind the elbows. Textured airflow helps keep your horse cool while working. The center-stitched keeper at each end holds the girth straps neatly in place, while stainless steel roller buckles at each end and elasticated inserts reduce pressure and make tacking up easier. The Airoform girth is also easy to care for–simply sponge clean with water (no soap or oil required)! 34″ – 62″. Available in black or brown.
