That should have read no point in buying a Schleese new lol.

Anyway yes, DH and I are buying property and I will be getting my own school going within the next 2 - 3 years. So it will have use after I get my "new" saddle that i've been drooling over and dying to get. Seriously, Schleese Eagle is like sitting on a big comfy couch lol.

So yea that's whats happening. The Thorowgood will be a temp thing until the rep finds me the saddle I want. I am a die hard Schleese person. I have yet to sit in a Schleese I haven't loved. Their dressage saddles are heavenly, their cross country saddles and jumping saddles are dreamy.

Hmmm, I may have to look into Schleese. Not that I can actually afford one at the moment, but they sound divine.

You will never want to go back lol. Their saddles are designed for women. They can be custom fit over and over again to any person or horse. The leather is of great quality. The knee/calf blocks can be adjusted by you. Which is great when you are going between jumping and flat. They hold their value and you can attend fitting clinics every year to have the saddle checked as your horse changes, or as you change if you lose/gain weight.

That's it, Schleese needs to start paying me to promote their saddles

Thorowgood have a very good tree and an excellent panel shape which suits a lot of horses, IMO. And they're a bit lighter than many all-leather saddles, which some horses (and riders) appreciate.

The reason Bates saddles tip riders forward is they don't get properly adjusted. You can't just plonk one on any old horse and expect it to fit well, whatever the manufacturer might imply :(

I have the Thorowgood T8 dressage saddle and love it. The GP is on my list once I get my tax refund. I love that the are wool flocked. The faux leather parts look fine to me and they are a bit more tacky than an all leather saddle, so it's not a slippery saddle. Very good bang for the buck.

I have a Tekna for my QH and have ridden in the maxam GP by Thorowgood. Super comfy saddle and it fit the horse really well.
