I know you can re-flock the Thorowgoods - hell, you can re-flock a Wintec if you want to make it a bit comfier ;) I was just meaning the mouldable tree v changeable gullet thing. However, yes, LOVE the Thorowgoods, and very interested to hear them doing leather ones now... may keep an eye on what dressage saddles they bring out in the next wee while...

I have that dressage saddle. It is sooooo comfy.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I have heard of the new system where they can change the shape with heat- sounds nifty!
I have heard so many pros and cons for Bates, opinions seem to vary enormously on them. Kinda makes me want to steer clear of them
Also have heard Pessoa's tend to throw your position out of whack too??

Heck, I'll just throw it out there but I'm in love with Toulouse saddles. They fit both of my wide , WIDE horses well and its a dream to jump in. I rode in the Premia model. You stick to the seat more because its all calfskin but it just makes me feel a lot more secure over fences, expecially since I've been doing XC. And its like sitting in my favorite couch its so comfy lol

I actually seriously considered a Toulouse... but i've been reading a lot of reviews lately that say their quality isn't what it used to be in terms of stitching coming out etc... I still want one, but I would want to see it before buying, not just going online.

I think they're amazing! I tested a bunch of saddles and I thought it was the best. I sat in and felt everthing from bates, to Pessoa but the Toulouse was by far my favorite. I honestly like it way better than any of the Pessoas, which used to be my favorite.

A woman at my barn has a Toulouse for her TB and she loves it. It looks like it has very nice balance.

Never heard of Toulouse, I don't think we have them here in Australia. Has anyone got any opinions on Southern Stars jumping saddles?
