Honestly, with Thorowgood you probably don't really need the high wither. Get yourself a flexicurve from any store that sells drafting/craft supplies and do a wither tracing. You might find he would fit into the regular T8 GP just fine. I just got a T8 jump saddle yesterday. They no longer make a high wither and I figured I'd be sending it right back, but it seems to fit with plenty of clearance despite my having ordered the wrong gullet size. My other T8 dressage that is a high wither model, has so much clearance you could put a baseball in there. Big time overkill.

If you want some other options, try:

Happy Horse Tack 970-484-4199

Trumbull Mountain Tack shop (Just google it)

Flying Star Stables Brighton, Colorado : Home in CO 303-655-1815

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

If it helps about making a decision about getting the high wither model or not, here's my horse's back. The high wither gives him overkill in clearance.

Looks like your guy has got some more muscle to his shoulders than mine.. which would help sit the saddle up more.. I might continue ground work for a while longer with mine to see if he is going to muscle out more or if that is just his shape.. This is my first thoroughbred.. Im used to quarter horses

Still on the hunt for a saddle. I have tried a cutback passier comet II and a cutback Kieffer aachen.. neither worked on him.. I'm starting to think the High wither thorowgoods are the only option anywhere near my budget.. The T4 is the only model I can find in the US though.. Looking for more opinions on the T4. I want to do dressage and some jumping with him..
