    Have you considered a Thornhill? I did a lot of searching for a saddle to trail ride in with my Icelandic....wide but very short backed. Tried a Thorowgood Broadback but it was a tad too long. ...

    Hi...I live in the mountains of western NC near Asheville. I grew up here, but also lived (and resumed my horsey life by taking lessons) in Charleston, SC, where I went to college. Moved back to...

    Double check the ingredients in your sunscreen!!! Certain ones, especially retinyl palmitate (a form of vitamin A) are associated with INCREASED risk of skin cancer. Oxybenzone isn't as safe as...

    BHLH, thanks for saddlling the pony-keg! The red gullet seems like it would be what my guy needs (not quite as wide as the pony-keg), so maybe it would work for him. I finally got a reply from...

    BigHorseLittleHorse, That would be awesome if you could try it on that pony....with that breed mixture it must be a little TANK...or a pony keg! I hope it fits. Thanks much!

    Malda, I like that one too, and know that Trumbull has great customer service. But I feel like I might need the grippiness of the equisuede seat...my gelding is pretty laidback, but at 53, I...

    Thanks, Sonata...I knew there were a few folks here who had this saddle and was hoping you'd reply....it's good to know that it works for your chunkster, and might for mine. Thanks for your reply!

    I know from whence you come, tollertwins! Bridging is something we've had problems with; if the Thorowgood endurance is a no go, I may look at the Henri De Rivel Rivella Dressage...it's quite...
  9. questions about Thorowgood endurance saddle...

    For those of you who use this saddle, would it be at all appropriate for a very short-backed, low withered, round bodied pony? Pony is a 13 hand Icelandic, not tall, but quite stout. I'm 5'6",...
  10. Ohhh...good question, I hadn't thought of that. ...

    Ohhh...good question, I hadn't thought of that. Seeing as how my hot flashes make me tend to swill (and carry) a lot of water, maybe I'd better rethink this idea of adding d rings....

    Thanks, Gaitedincali. Yes, I wondered whether trying to sew d rings on myself would end badly (and with profanity, upon stabbing myself, too.) I had thought about the "Tie One On's" but did...
  12. Can I have d rings added to a synthetic saddle?

    I'm thinking of ordering a Thorowgood Broadback saddle for my short but wide gelding. We are strictly leisurely pleasure trail riders, 3 to 4 hours at a time. But I'm used to having a place to...

    Yikes, Wildlifer! I posted my reply before I read your post. But at least you haven't had mechanical issues, that's encouraging, anyway. Maybe the suspension can be beefed up with aftermarket...

    Thanks...it's good to hear that you have one and like it! I know it'll suck gas, but I can deal with that. I don't have the carfax yet, but I will definitely do that. The truck's at a used car...
