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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aachen w/ Genesis System - AWESOME! I purchased this saddle after trying out some more expensive ones. This one had the comfort I was looking for, as well as the adjustable gullet system that takes seconds to adjust, at a fraction of the cost of other saddles that have a prominent name on them. I encourage you to try this saddle before deciding on a more expensive one. You won't be disappointed and neither will your horse! LOVE IT!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended The leather on this saddle is UNBELIEVABLE! Soft, lush with jus the right amount of "stick". Everyone at my barn was jealous even the BO who has a $6,000 custom saddle. The genesis system needs to be in every saddle ever made. It takes 10 seconds to understand it and had endless options for size between to widest and narrowest. That being said, it can be a challenge to ge tthe exact right fit since you can move at tiny increments. The channel width was wide enough for my flat backed Arab mare. Unfortunately, the twist is very wide and my pelvis is not so it was not very comfortable for me. The seat was deep and cushioned well, but the twist had my legs too far apart and put me in a chair seat. If you need a wide twist saddle, do yourself a favor and check this one out. It is definitly worth the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saddle, awful billets Extremely comfortable for both myself and my horse, this is a great saddle. It puts me in the correct position and the deep seat is very hard for a green horse to suddenly pull you out of.The Genesis System gives a nicely customized fit, although widening the tree requires more effort the further you go. It's great for just one horse or possibly two, but unless you know exactly how many turns are required for individual horses, it's not practical to change the tree size for multiple rides per day.The leather is very soft and required no breaking in. I was concerned about its durability and still am somewhat, but so far there are no scratches or rubbing apparent. It also cleans up beautifully.My only significant complaint is the billets. They look and feel like they are made out of stiff cardboard. The sides are not tanned, and the rest looks like it was painted over. They are extremely inflexible, and I was actually worried they might tear. Thus far, this hasn't happened, but with the high quality of the rest of the leather, the billets are an insult. I will be replacing them at the first opportunity.Overall, this is an outstanding saddle for the price, comfort, and customization.
