As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The M. Toulouse Aachen Genesis Saddle is hand crafted of natural, tanned, pigmented, aniline-finished high quality leather which easily accepts oil.

The innovative Genesis adjustable gullet system allows a single saddle to custom fit all of your horses safely and dependably because the Genesis provides you with every saddle width needed.

Whether you ride several horses, or you horse is growing and changing, the Genesis gullet system will adjust your saddle from narrow to extra wide and any width in between.

The Aachen Genesis saddle features a deep seat, mildly forward flap and is overlaid entirely of French calf leather. The Adjusta-Block® moveable/removable knee block system allows positioning for optimum comfort and effectiveness. The gusseted panels ensure great fit for your horse.

  • Hand laminated beech wood, steel reinforced spring tree with a 10 year guarantee
  • Wool flocked panels
  • Soft air-cushioned kneepads

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this saddle! Was looking for a saddle that would actually fix my arab/quarter horse. This saddle fit my horse well and I found it very comfortable. The genesis adjustable system worked great. I also thought the leather was of good quality... and a good value for the money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me. I tried this saddle because of the Genisis system. I received the saddle very quickly, which was awesome. The Genisis system is amazing! Unfortunately, I hated the saddle design. I'm a tall individual(5'9"), and this saddle placed my legs too far in front of me. My legs were so in front of me that I had difficult posting, let alone sitting the trot, and I am a strong, competent rider. I have never sat in a saddle that placed me in such a horrible position as this saddle did. I was not pleased with the quality either. The leather was soft, but I'm confident the leather will be worn through very quickly. Look for another saddle. I'm going to try the Toulouse Alyssa.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not wide as advertised? I got this saddle on a trial after sitting in one locally and loving how it felt. The trial saddle would not go anywhere near extra wide and the best I could do was a 5 1/2 inch gullet. After a long wait, I found out that they are rated from 4-7 inches. Not the saddle I had! So, while the leather was great and the adjusting mechanism user friendly, it was not as advertised. Maybe for the narrow horses out there? Never did get to ride in it as it didn't fit the three horses I ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saddle for the money I trialed the saddle over a few days. The Genesis system was easy to use. I tweaked the fit a couple of times in the course of the trial. It fit my horse Ziggy well. Unfortunately, it didn't fit me as well. Darn, I really liked the saddle. The trial was no hassle, returning it was easy. Staff at Smart Pak a pleasure to talk to so helpful and informative!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful saddle This saddle is a beautiful saddle - especially for the price!! Unfortunately it did not fit me nor my horse. (Despite the adjustable tree which is so fabulous - the saddle just didn't fit through his back even when it was the correct width through his withers) I was sad that it didn't work since I've tried so many saddles and was so hoping that this one would be the one that would work. It's a bummer it didn't fit - definitely worth looking at if you are saddle shopping!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sad to Send it Back This is a beautiful, well made saddle of quality leather. The Genesis adjustable gullet system is without a doubt the BEST on the market today. It is the easiest system out there, hands down. The saddle can be adjusted millimeter by millimeter, so it can be made to fit just about any horse. Unfortunately, for me as the rider, it had too wide of a twist and for that reason it was uncomfortable to ride in. I could only ride in it for 10 minutes before my upper thighs and lower back were screaming in pain. I much prefer saddles with narrow twists. Sadly, I had to return the saddle to SmartPak. But for anybody who requires a wide twist, I highly recommend this saddle. I am very disappointed that it did not fit me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice saddle Would have purchase but... it wasn't a "narrow enough" twist for me. Returned

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Saddle ever!!! This saddle is absolutely amazing. The hinge genesis system was so easy to adjust and my sensitive TB LOVES it. He has so much freedom in his shoulders and is completely relaxed in it. He is four, so the idea of the adjustable gullet serves a great piece of mind for when he grows and fills out more. The only thing I did not absolutley love was the billets which were stiff, but the saddle fits great and is like a custom saddle for my horse for an affordable price!
