    Just a thought if you've got budgetary qualms with the Mattes: there are cheaper correction pads on the market, like the Total Saddle Fit correction pad and the ECP correction pad. Some people don't...

    So this is a Hail Mary punt, and it may not be applicable to your situation...but sometimes, you if you slide a sturdy band onto your stirrup bar, you can make the stirrup hang further back on the...

    It's definitely on my list of things to blog about for The Saddle Geek, in fact I'll be asking Bua to do a guest interview (no idea if they'll say yes, but it wouldn't hurt to ask!).

    Tough question without knowing more about the saddle. Do you have a picture?

    What color is it now? Leather colors go in and out of fashion. Lighter colors, like London Tan, can be a tough resell...

    Sure, although it would be even better if you showed her an actual, recent Thorowgood saddle. You'd get a better sense, then, of what she did and didn't like about it.

    Annette Gavin in Pennsylvania sells Thorowgood, and her saddle-fitting crew sometimes works at a distance. They have a better trial policy than Dover, too (10 days). The question is whether she'll...

    If you want accurate projections, you'll need to speak with local boarding facilities. Or if you prefer, find a local 501c3 horse rescue or therapeutic riding center. They probably keep that info on...

    Everyone I know who uses voice dictation on a Mac uses Dragon Dictate for Mac. Not cheap, but very good, especially after you've trained it to understand your voice.

    I agree with this, but it kind of depends on what you're looking for. Mattes is purposely more close-cropped than Christ Lammfelle/Horsedream, but Mattes tends to have a stiffer quilted topper than...

    Based on those comments, it's possible that your fitter hasn't seen a Thorowgood since before they moved to wool-flocked panels + the current Simatree technology with an adjustable gullet system. The...

    Nobody cares. Really. Isabell Werth used her Wintec Isabell at the Olympics, so there's your answer about "rated shows." ;)

    OP, jawa is making an important point: the more expensive correction pads are generally more durable and have higher-quality shims. That said, I've known many folks who get along with a $55...

    The short answer: Schleese.

    The longer answer: It's hard to say without knowing what you consider "very wide." Most high-end brands have permissive center gullet channels these days that are...

    I agree with Highflyer: breastplates won't help with the problem you're describing.

    At that price point, the ECP is a very decent option. That said, if you ride in a large saddle, know that it can be a tight fit under an 18" saddle. If you're not sure if it'll fit or if it'll solve...
