The T8 saddle combines leather look synthetic flaps for durability and quality leather seat and knee pads to give the feel of riding on an all leather saddle.
This compact medium profile model has slim, flat panels which are ideal croup high or flat backed horses, ideally suited to a low to medium wither profile.  Tho Thorowgood call this compact this does not refer to the saddles overall length.

The compact model is also a very good option for the petite rider as they will find the seat narrower than the original gp model.  The super-comfy deeper seat gives a little extra in-saddle security and locates the rider centrally for balance and control. 

Includes original Thorowgood fleece cover.
