    Default Can you buy Thigh Blocks Separately?

    I have a Stubben Eidelweiss that I LOVE. But I wish it had thigh blocks.

    I have a great leathersmith that can attach them, but where the heck do you buy them?

    Can I just get any kind of thigh block or does it specifically have to be Stubben?

    I have no idea where you can buy them, but they wouldn't have to be stubben. just make sure they're the same color as your saddle. good luck! maybe look on Ebay? people are always selling random stuff on there.

    K nothign on Ebay and the only places that actually sell thigh blocks are in the UK and that could get pricey, but if it's the only place, then so be it.

    Anyone know any sites to buy them?

    The tack store I use has them and you can buy them separately. They are a bit expensive though. You can also get them with the velcro, so you can move them or take them off. Have you tried phoning some of your local tack stores or calling someone who fits saddles in your area?

    No, not yet, I just really started looking for them when I posted the thread...

    There is a Dover store up in Hockessin, DE where my bf's parents live, so I can always call them next time I'm going up there too.

    I don't really want the velcro, would rather have them nice and solid in place.

    I may see what the exchange would be if I bought them on the one site I saw them on in the UK. They were 35 pounds a pair.

    I bought my saddle from Advanced Saddle Fit in New Hampshire...mine has the velcro/removable thigh blocks and she had a whole boat load of knee/thigh blocks, would reccomend giving her a call to see if she had any. Even if there were only ones with velcro... prob wouldnt be to hard to removed velcro to have put permanently onto your saddle!
    They have a website w/all the contact info
    Advancedsaddlefit.com I believe!

    I had this done on my Crosby - the guy at Broken Horn had a source, but you can find them online too. After a quick search on google I found these.
