You either get to the window by doing a "reply" or clicking on the "go advanced" button under the box where you type your post. Then above the window where you type your post, there's a paper-clip icon. Click on that, and then upload your pics.

Crossing my fingers for you (about the saddle-fit, not about figuring out how to attach pics )

Yeah still waiting for it to arrive back to them and get my money back. I made some templates from my back tracing that im going to take out there to make sure my tracings were accurate

I have an idea. If you are considering Thorowgood at all, but want to be able to try before you buy, why not try the synthetic T4 version from Dover Saddlery. If it fits, send the synthetic back and other the T8 mostly leather version from a place in the US. They do exist. I just got a brown T8 for my OTTB and it fits him very nicely.

I've decided I would really much prefer a close contact saddle, the thorowgoods look really bulky and not great for jumping.

I have heard stubbens fit shark-finned thoroughbreds very well, and I ride my lesson horse (Shark-fin withers, OTTB) is an All Purpose stubben. Though they are expensive, they last FOREVER and you should be able to find one used. I'm sure they could be helpful if you send them the tracings also. You could find used from private sellers, or for a bit more order from their website: Stübben North America - Stübben used saddles

This video shows why and how the stubben saddles are so great and fit OTTB's very well!

Nice saddles :)

Shame about the video, really, which made no mention at all of how important panel shape is :(
