Thornhill Pro or Windsor Elite - which one fits better?

I tried out saddles today and narrowed it down to the Thornhill Pro and Windsor Elite. It turns out I need either a 16.5 or 17.0 saddle size. Pics are attached.

Which one fits me better? Any experience with either brand/style? The big pic with the red dot on the front of the saddle is the Windsor. Small pic is the Thornill.

Thanks in advance.

My personal preference would be for the Thornhill. I have an older Thornhill Pro Trainer 24K Platinum Jumping saddle and it's the most comfortable English saddle I've ever had. Well, maybe not quite as comfy as my old, old Pariani but close. It seems to fit just about every horse I put it on and didn't need a whole lot of break in time. One of my pet peeves is breaking in a new saddle and this one wasn't bad at all.

Ok thanks - I've heard only good things about Thornhills so far.

LOL, when I first bought it, I hated the thought of breaking it in, so I let my trainer ride in it. 6 months later, I practically had to fight him to get it back. He was in love, and bought himself one once I took mine home. Never had a sore back on a horse either, so, I think they do well there too.

Thornhill all the way... Tried several while searching for my saddle and they were quite nice!

It looks like it puts you in a really good position vs the saddle on the right, imo.

Agreeing with the Thornhill. The other one looks too small for you. I LOVED my old Thornhill! :)
