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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO COMFORTABLE! Bought this 3 years ago for x-country, jumping,& trail riding. I have 2 horses & got so SPOILED by the comfort of this saddle that I dreaded riding in my other saddle, so this week I bought another one just like it! Now my back never hurts after riding either horse. The medium deep seat, ergonomics, & QUALITY leather make this saddle VERY SECURE, as well. The mono-flap gives great contact, especially on my Shire/TB, as there's no extra bulk. This saddle puts your body & legs in perfect position. Almost feels like a hybrid of a jumping & dressage saddle. Did I mention: COMFORTABLE?!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle, great price! When I realized my old saddle, which fit my horse great, was forcing me into an awkward position, I began the search for a saddle that fit ME better. I tried what seemed like 20 saddles (some very high end used saddles to new pessoas and stubbens) and ended up loving the feel of the Toulouse Monoflap. This saddle has a wider twist than I'm used to, but I actually like it more. The monoflap gives you the ultimate contact with you horse. This saddle felt broken in the moment it arrived, and after I conditioned it, it is so soft and supple. The leather is great quality and very grippy which I love in a cross country saddle! This saddle fit my horse great, although most saddles fit him well, so I don't know how it would be on those hard to fit horses! I had heard mixed reviews about the quality of the Toulouse saddles, but I am very impressed with the quality of the Marielle. I would definitely recommend this saddle to anyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this saddle!!!!! I bought this saddle for Smartpak with some good and bad things said about M. Toulouse. I went ahead and ordered it anyways because I knew sending it back was always an option. After riding in it just once I was sure that this saddle was a keeper! I have a really bad habit of sitting too far back then getting left behind, and this saddle helped me so much!!! A lot of people say jumping any kind of height in M. Toulouses is hard, but I was jumping 3`3 training level cross country fences without problems! There were some problems with if it was in stock, when it was being shipped, and also if it was even shipped! But with there amazing customer service, ALL my questions were anwsered and all the problems were fixed! Just another reason why I love ordering from Smartpak!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for the price, not quite right for me Wasn't quite the right saddle for me or my horse, which was a shame as I thought the price point was very reasonable and the quality good. Twist is medium, I strongly prefer a narrow twist, and I couldn't quite find a balance when I jumped small fences in it. I found myself leaping up my horse's neck or getting left behind - this might have been due to the saddle not sitting correctly on my awkwardly shaped horse - I really don't know. It's a very pretty saddle and I like the wool/foam combo panels, it may work better for those with more easy to fit horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality for Great Price I have a TBXConnemara with no withers and I LOVE this saddle because it fits both me and my mare great. The knee and thigh blocks are in perfect position and the "grippy" leather helps me stick on the flat and over fences( comes extremelly handy when she jumps a 2' fence 5' high). I would recomend this product to everyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy! I tried a bunch of saddles and finally settled with this one. It fits my wide Conn/Tb mare very nicely. I've only had the saddle for 3 weeks and the leather is already breaking in very nicely! If you're looking for a comfortable event saddle for a reasonable price, I would recommend this one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting fit? I was very hopeful about this saddle as I had just sold my mtl celine because it no longer fit my horses and I just loved that saddle I really wanted to find a Toulouse that fit. This saddle fit my aged quarter horse with high withers and a nicely laid back shoulder and not so round back better than my Irish sport horse who has a more upright shoulder, average wither and nicely filled in top line, which is weird to me, but both had the same problem. The front of the saddle was to wide at the pommel side of the panel and to far forward where the panel met the shoulder causing it to interfere greatly with the shoulder or causing the saddle to fit way to far back on the horses back and REALLY mess with the saddles fit.additionally I find that all of the Toulouse saddles I have ridden in have to much curve in the panel causing the saddle to rock or bounce on the horses back. This can be remedied. Or at least lessened by using a good corrective pad but I personally want my saddle to fit without gadgetry. Plus when I add a pad I tended to get some back pain from the ponies. The construction is gorgeous the saddle is comfortable but not the most comfortable have ever sat on but no complaints. The billets are SUPER long! My dressage girth had to go all the way to the top hole on both sides so go with a 20-22 inch for the average medium horse. Overall the fit is awkward and noth that great. I imagine it would fit wider horses better. Plenty of room for withers though.I have images to share but the site won't let me load them...
