Thorowgood T6 Saddle - Anyone have one?
I have been reading up on the Thorowgood T6 saddles. I am very interested in switching to synthetic (I'm a vegetarian, and think it's weird for me to still be using leather) and the T6 has a very nice leather-like look.
I have heard really mixed reviews about these saddles. Some people LOVE them, but some have really negative things to say.
Has anyone owned them for a long period of time? How have they held up? I am talking specifically about the T6s, info on the T4s isn't really useful to me.
I am unfortunately currently horseless (lost the lease on my gelding, and still haven't found a horse to purchase) but it seems likely that I will wind up with an OTTB. Therefore the adjustable gullet & Fish inserts seem like they could be VERY useful! I love the look of the saddles. And the prices are great!
But I have heard tales of questionable craftsmanship. If anyone owns one of these saddles, could you please take close ups of anything odd and post them for me?
