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 Marielle +4 Monoflap saddle is hand crafted of natural vegetable tanned, pigmented, aniline finished leather which will accept oil. The soft covered leather is tanned using French tanning methods. Designed by Marcel Toulouse, Master Saddler in France.

Hand laminated beechwood, steel reinforced tree with stainless steel stirrup bar. Ten year guarantee on tree. Wool lined foam panels.

Ultra soft, comfortable anatomically shaped, medium deep seat to provide better support for the rider and center the weight properly. Absolutely correct balance and the monoflap allows maximum contact with the horse. Made 4 cm forward than the M. Toulouse Marielle Monoflap saddle.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good saddle for eventing beginner I am a fan of the Toulouse brand. This saddle is great for someone starting eventing, however, I need a bit more durable saddle with a deeper seat. (Just my preference) the 4 plus option is a plus if you need a more forward flap.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Knockoff but Missed the Mark on Key Features I love my borrowed cwd monoflap and was intrigued by this lower price knockoff. Side by side, they have a lot of the same great features. Despite the trial size being too small for me, I felt that it still put me in a good place for x-country riding (a little deeper and farther back) and the flaps were nice and forward for my long legs. The seat is not quite as soft (nor is the leather) but for $4K less, it's still pretty good. The M tree is wide and low...this definitely would not work on a high-wither horse. My horse fits a M/MW and this still seemed generous. Also there is a lot of padding under the cantle which may be pushing the front down a bit...might be fixable with a professional fitting. With all these factors, I'd still consider buying the saddle...if it were not for the billets. This is where they really missed the mark. There is a nylon web material that runs between the flap and up under the seat. The leather billets are then stitched onto this, below the flap. Might be ok with thicker webbing, but this is really thin (I think you could cut through it with a pair of dull scissors) and you could see on the trial saddle that the holes made by the stitches were already starting to expand. If they made the billet strap one piece, or at least all leather, and charged a few hundred more for it, this would be a really great saddle. As is, I'm going to keep looking.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from comfy, but didn't fit This saddle was very comfortable, but bridged on my horse. Not only that, but I thought part of the reason for the monoflap was to have the girth straps run under the flap and spread the pressure... the girth on this saddle just connects to the end of the flap. Hmmm.. I do have another toulouse on order, though. I think they otherwise make great saddles!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle so far I purchased this saddle for my 15 year old daughter. She's 5 ft 5 in tall, but has a long femur, so was thrilled to be able to get the forward flap model. The saddle is really pretty to look at - the leather has a nice color and texture, and the overall design is great. It really puts her in a great position on her horse (15 hh TB/QH/Mustang/Perch mix). It is much easier for her to stay balanced and out of the saddle in galloping and jumping positions (she was formerly in a Circuit jumping saddle). We got the 24" girth with it which fits, but next time will get a 22" (it's hard to find a brown girth for a monoflap!). Only remaining question is long term durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it!!! I love this saddle! When I first got this saddle i Hated it, but once i stoped fighting the saddle with my bad posture i loved it! the saddle gently reminds your body to put your heal, hip and shoulders in line with eachother but dose not put you so up right that you cant go in to two point. its easy to clean more than a year old and still looks brand new. This saddle fits my t/b's great! I have the Med.
