    Jumping saddles have a forward placed stirrup bar (and flaps) to allow the rider to stay over the horse's center of gravity during a jump. The more the stirrup leathers are shortened, the more likely...

    I used an expensive single jointed KK for several years and thought my horse was very happy in it. Then I took my bridle home to clean, and needed to borrow a friend's bridle for 1 ride. It was a...

    Yes as in Earl Grey tea. My horse has a noble bearing with his 'slightly' roman nose. I wouldn't say he is flashy and extravagant, which is why I'm not going with "Outgraygeous". Though that is an...

    Thanks scubed. This will be a name for schooling shows only. If I do a USEA recognized show (HIGHLY doubtful), then I would use my horse's registered name. Show name is just for the "fun stuff"...

    Yaya: He "Used to be Black" :) I love all these suggestions. I may have to use a different name at each show to take advantage of all the terrific names you've all suggested!

    So far I'm leaning...

    Come Shine: Gracious. OK, you guys are too clever! That also spawns: Graceful!

    Oooh, I like Quicksilver, but my laidback guy is anything but "quick". I guess no one else would know, but I'd feel a little dishonest!

    Url Grey comes to mind. The "U" is on purpose - after his...

    Believe me, his reg. foreign name, which consists of several vowels and one consonant would NOT be helpful :)

    Of the 5 names in my OP, I'm leaning towards

    Pearl Jam
    Icy Hot
    Iron Man

    Gray horse show name..

    Next year I hope to start mini-eventing. I have a 15.3hh gray gelding with dark knees/hocks and a some dapples on his hindquarters. He has a darker gray mane/tail, so he is not a snow white gray yet....

  13. Feedback on the Thorowgood T8 jump or GP saddle?

    Just looking for all the feedback I can find on either the T8 Jump saddle or the T8 GP (general purpose) saddles by Thorowgood. They are the newer hybrid leather and synthetic saddle. No US retailer...

    No, you're not being snarky at all. I've just started jumping again and can use my friend's Antares, though I cannot afford to get one for myself. Another gal has a Hampton Bay that I can borrow, but...

    Equibrit, I was told that "all purpose" saddles may as well be called "no purpose" saddles. That basically they were good for flatting or trail riding, but the flaps are too straight for jumping much...

    I am mainly a dressage rider, but used to do mini-events about 10 years ago. Several folks at my barn are getting into those, and it looked so fun I'm thinking about wading in again. But after riding...

    Thanks Crowne! It's helpful to know that about the Tekna panels. Scoopy or curvy panels will definitely "rock" on my horses straight back. Even just narrowing it down to Wintecs and Thorowgoods is...

    Thanks again for all the feedback. And thanks Bogie and TBchick for taking time to post your photos and information! I'm trying to avoid ordering 3+ saddles and shipping them back and forth to try,...

    Bogie, what is different about the newer Wintec Pro Jump that you don't like? And how would I know an old-style one? Yes, I am thinking that my Bates and the Wintec will be built on similar...

    I meant to say that I have nice leather dressage saddle since that is my main discipline, so opting for a synthetic jump saddle for occasional jump schooling or a local mini-event makes sense...
  23. Thorowgood - Tekna - Wintec jump saddles. WWYD??

    After more budget considerations, which of the above synthetic saddle brands would you choose for low level eventing/jumping (2'6" or lower)?? Between the adjustable trees and low maintenance...

    Thanks for everyone's imput. I ride quite a few horses for clients and often I find they put me in a chair seat if the stirrups are too SHORT. Most people jump in too short a stirrup, thinking it's...
