Re: [RC] Thorowgood saddles - heidi sowards

I had one of the older endurance models with a med. tree
for my other horse. It's a comfortable saddle, well made,
gel seat, wool flocked and fit my horse great. The dees
that were on it were cheap though and came off with barely
any weight. Hopefully they've changed those. Mine weight
apprx. 8 lbs. w/o gear. GREAT saddle.

Hi Darlene,

I don't have a scanner, so can't send a photo.  Go to
They have a great website with lots of pics.  Yes, mine
really is 5#!  Not 
15!  Although, when I put all my gear on it, it's
probably at least 15.  Mine 
is a proto-type, and I don't know how much the market
ones weigh, probably 
between 5# & 10#.  I have used it on all sorts of horses,
and I use a Skito 
equilizer pad with it.  It seems to fit them all well.  I
use a breast collar 
& crupper; firmly believe they help keep saddles from
pressing on shoulders 
and loins.  I like the saddle to stay where it's supposed
to on the horse's 
back, and a breastcollar & crupper help accomplish that.

Good luck!
