We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

The M. Toulouse Alyssa Dressage Saddle with Genesis is a beautifully designed saddle overlaid entirely of French calf leather providing additional grip in the saddle with an incredibly soft feel. This saddle has been hand crafted with premium, soft leather that is natural, tanned, and pigmented with an aniline finish. The leather is a natural product and as a result, stronger and more durable. Designed by Marcel Toulouse, Master Saddler in France.

This saddle also features the innovative Genesis adjustable gullet system! With its integral parts constructed of case-hardened steel, the Genesis is the only adjustable gullet system backed by a 10 year guarantee. The Genesis System allows a single saddle to custom fit all of your horses, safely and dependably.  It's able to adjust from narrow to extra-wide and any width in between, making it perfect for those who ride several horses or have growing or changing horses. 

Favorite Features

  • Overlaid entirely of French calf leather
  • Extra padding on the seat for a more comfortable ride
  • Soft Touch Panels (STP) are made with pure soft latex rubber and wool flocking. The bottom layer of latex rubber allows the panels to mold to the horses' back creating a more comfortable and better fitting saddle
  • Stainless steel stirrup bars
  • Standard long billets
  • Innovative Genesis System backed by a 10 year guarantee
  • Adjustments to the Genesis system are made quickly and easily in just three steps using the included tools:
    • unlock the gullet
    • adjust the gullet width
    • then lock in the new width
  • All your adjustments are made almost instantly and without taking the saddle apart. A small, discrete flap underneath the saddle is all you need to open and you can adjust your Genesis gullet as often as you need for every horse you ride.

    M. Toulouse Alyssa Dressage Saddle with Genesis System is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this saddle! This saddle has truly exceeded my expectations in quality and feel while riding. The leather is lovely and grippy like the expensive french saddles, and overall the saddle is well-designed and constructed. My gelding has been changing and developing so I loved the gullet adjustment mechanism, as it is very easy to use and you don't have to buy extra gullets. I've found it to be well balanced and even my guy's big gaits are easy to sit. I am very average height but long from hip to knee, so I appreciate the slight forward orientation of the flap. I would buy this saddle again in a heartbeat!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle Not Designed Well When the saddle arrived I thought it was so beautiful. After looking at it carefully I never put it on my horse. The panels were to close together so I knew they would rest on my horses spine. The panels were also narrow and round, the roundness would likely put to much pressure all along his back. His last saddle looked the same underneath caused major problems. I believe the panels should be about 4+ fingers spaced apart and they should lay flat and be wide enough not to dig in to the horse. It would be nice to see pictures of the underneath of the saddle before purchasing, not just the top. It makes me very sad because the saddle is beautiful!!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would return this if I could I bought this saddle a year and a half ago. I am an intermediate dressage rider. I bought it for a low withered pony I was riding occasionally on the trail and ring. I found it fit him well, although I thought the contact was not very good. I then tried to fit it to a pony who had regular withers, the saddle fitter said she could not fit it. I still ride him in it with 2 pads. I find it very uncomfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality I like the quality of this saddle- the leather is nice and comfy and it's made well. The tree adjustment was easy and quick and the saddle did fit my horse well at about a wide (the Toulouse saddles seem to run a bit narrow IMO as a medium tree was too narrow for my just shy of 16hh TWH). Unfortunately, this did not fit me at all. The twist was too wide and my leg was several inches back from the knee block. It also hurt my right hip flexor to ride in this. I have been struggling to find a dressage saddle that fits both me and my horse and really wanted new, but ended up with a gently used Albion SLK as it fit the best.
