I'm buying my daughter a Thorowgood from dutchessbridlesaddle.com. They are going to adjust the flocking for me when it gets to their shop, before sending it to me. I took a lot of tracing and photos for the "virtural saddle fitting." We don't have any good saddle fitters in Arkansas. Ducthess' prices are also better than Dover's, which was nice
. I ordered the Cob/Broadback AP in Brown, which had to be special ordered from the UK.
I would much prefer a Thorowgood over a Wintec, but the new style Wintecs seem to be better in construction that the older models. One of my students just bought a 500 AP Pony and it's much nicer that the other Wintecs I have seen/used.
