I researched loads on saddles and eventually decided that a thorowgood would be best for my unbacked four year old as I could change gullets etc.
Anyway, bought one secondhand off ebay and it came today. Have now found out that although it is the T6 thorowgood saddle, its the older version which doesnt have interchangeable gullets so it only has fish.
Does anyone know if saddlers will be able to alter it as I think he needs it wide not med/wide and if so rough price?
If not, its going to have to be trying to sell it and getting something else, in which case does everyone agree that a thorowgood gp WITH interchangeable gullets is best or not?
Please help :)
Also, Iv looked at loads of sites and the sticky on here about saddle fitting and Im still a bit confused as to where the tree should come too by the withers if you get me? Like how do I tell if its too narrow or wide?
Plus he doesnt have large withers so the pommel seems to be very high(more than 3 fingers clearance), is this bad?
PS. Im in UK so no $ please
Posted a pic of him so you can see his conformation roughly
