        M. Toulouse Aachen Dressage Saddle w/Genesis is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 23.
        Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful saddle but didnt' fit my horse Beautiful saddle, lovely leather and the Genesis System seemed to work very well. It was interesting to see how much of a change it made when I adjusted it in how it actually fit my horse's. Unfortunately, even when the gullet seemed to be adjusted correctly, the saddle just didn't fit my horse perfectly. The seat was very comfortable to sit in, but the twist seemed a little wide - at least compared to what I was used to. My horse is quite hard to fit - I think this saddle is definitely worth trying and I am disappointed it didn't work out for us.

        Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle! I love this saddle! It fits both my horse and myself perfectly. The saddle is extremely comfortable and holds my leg in position wonderfully. I tried 9 saddles and this was the winner! The test ride program with Smartpak was easy to use and convenient.

        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!

        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.
