I have to find a saddle to fit my ample backside and my extremely wide Haflinger mare, all on a tight budget, as ever. Nothing I have here goes close to fitting her, and I can't start her saddle work unless I can find something.
Long term I was considering a Duett, but I want to get her going now, I have seen a Thorowgood Cob XXW advertised, and it's an 18" seat. It is described as 'as new' and looks like it if plenty wide enough for her, although as ever it's not until you get it on her back you really know about fit.
While I recognize the name Thorowgood, I really don't know anything about them, good bad indifferent? Do they run large, small or true in seat size??
I'm also struggling to find many advertised for sale to see if this saddle is at the right price or not.
Any information or experiences gratefully listened to.
I sold mine after justbuying it. I bought a demo model duett rondo and fits like a glove and well made real leather.
If you fit 16.5 seat or less then get a crosby house walsall riding academy cobpony saddle it is real leather and is short with wide panels.
