Why We Love This

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.

    SmartPak Returns

    We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

    Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

    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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 Fine Print

    We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

    Undergarments
    Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

    Saddles
    As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
    That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

    So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

        M. Toulouse Aachen Dressage Saddle w/Genesis is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21.
        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
        Date published: 2012-02-22
        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.
