M. Toulouse Aachen Dressage Saddle
good fit for horse and rider
I bought this saddle to fit my standardbred mare, it fits her perfectly and she moves quite freely with it on. It is very comfortable for me and feels very natural...very important when practicing Natural Horsemanship. I can't rate the durability because I have only had it a few weeks.

This is probably the best thing I have bought for my money. I prefer this saddle to a lot of $3000 saddles out there. Everone that has ridden in it has commented on how comfortable it is, it has worn in great with little signs of wear, and has the most durable, supple leather. A cat even jumped on top of it and scratched it and all I had to do was take some leather conditioner and polish to it and it's as good as new. I won't buy another brand ever again.

You no longer have to be in pain and agony while practicing your dressage moves, this saddle is so comfortable for you and your horse. The quality is top notch made with a high quality supple leather. We love it!

This saddle is truly amazing. I'm on a budget and was looking for that illusive great quality saddle with out the huge price tag. I was going to go the 'used' route, but found it hard to find something that would fit me (petite 5ft) and my horse (3 year old paint 16hh and growing) that would continue to fit while he grew. The genesis drew me to this saddle. I actually was trying a used County Competitor and an Albion at the same time I was test riding this. This saddle won hands down. It fit my horse the best and fit me even better. This saddle is amazingly comfortable. The leather is so soft, you would think it would be a $3,000 saddle. I HIGHLY recommend this saddle to anyone on a budget or even if you're not, this saddle is still better (in my opinion) than the higher priced saddles out there. The first time you sit in it, you'll never want to get out.

Best Purchase Ever
We have a very hard to fit horse, who is wide bodied but with withers. After trying over a dozen different saddles and failing to find one that fit properly with out significant modification or outlay of $$$$$$$$$$$$! We did a saddle trial on this saddle based on a recommedation from a friend. Hands down the most comfortable and best fitting saddle we tried. The price was very reasonable and we have never been sorry we bought it. We have been pleased with the quality of the saddle and how well it has held up under daily riding even after three years it still looks like new. We recently purchased the stirrup leathers and have been very pleased with the quality of those as well. I highly recommend this saddle and would not hesitate to purchase another one .

This is a great quality saddle for the money with some really cool features. Rides as good as it looks and the leather is amazing. Two thumbs up.
