Totally agree. A good friend of mine has a very hard to fit horse that is round and mutton withered. She went through many different saddle choices in an attempt to find the best fit, and it was the Thorowgood that fit him the best.
Yes, it's a synthetic saddle, but I was/am quite impressed with the quality....it's very nice, and in my opinion the quality surpasses the Wintecs. I believe Dover has at least one that you can have shipped to you on trial.
Hope that helps.
