HDR, wintec, or thorowgood?
I'm looking into getting a new saddle, and I was wondering what your thoughts are on Henri De Rivel, wintec, and thorowgood saddles? Right now I have an HDR synthetic that I love to death, but sadly my horse has grown out of it. I'm not a big fan of leather because I don't do much showing and I love how easy it is to care for a synthetic saddle, and the fact that I can run around and splash in puddles and ride in any weather, but I hear that leather saddles are better for your horses backs. Right now I am considering the HDR advantage eurocup, the wintec close contact, and the thorowgood technic. The wintec and thorowgood are cheaper and synthetic, so I am leaning towards them but I still keep hearing negative comments about synthetic. My horse has a low wither and wide back. Any opinions would be very helpful!
