I can't decide which one I like better! HELP! other peoples opinion on each would be great, just don't tell me to buy a nice used leather saddle.. this is what I want.
First of all, my horse is an arabianX, probably Anglo, not really sure, he has always just resembled arab with something, until the tb showed up at the barn and I kind of see that in him. Anyways his withers are pretty average, I've been using a medium gullet stubben on him and it has been fine. But, he does have higher withers that other horses, but not overly so.
So my debate is between: Dover Saddlery | Thorowgood T4 Standard Dressage Saddle .
and Dover Saddlery | Wintec 500 Dressage II Saddle with CAIR .
On the Thorowgood, do you think I would get the High withered?
and on the Wintec I have never seen a new one with CAIR panels, how do they work, what's so great about them?
I've never ridden in a Thorowgood, or actually seen one in person, but the reviews are great, and I've seen plenty of Wintecs, ridden in them, like them.
I like the look of the Thorowgood better, and the "suede" seat, but I am more familiar with Wintecs.
