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 Annice is a well crafted and extremely comfortable saddle. Perfect for use in the Hunters or Equitation. The medium deep seat with narrow twist offers security, yet keeps close contact with the horse. Double leather flaps and knee rolls provide a grippier feeling and is more pliable to the touch. Adjusta-Block knee and thigh blocks. Comfort Fit Foam Panels. Hand laminated beechwood and steel reinforced tree with 10 year guarantee.


Favorite Features

  • Double leather flaps & knee rolls
  • Adjusta-Block knee and thigh blocks
  • 10 year guarantee on the tree of the saddle

    M. Toulouse Annice Close Contact Saddle is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfy, secure, but horrid leather I have had this saddle for 5 years and I love the secure and comfortable feel. I stay securely in the saddle even when my horse spooks, stops, spins, or gets silly. I feel very safe in this saddle. My only and biggest disappointment is the quality of the leather. It has faded unevenly in places, has spots all over it and uneven color. I clean it, oil it, and it stays safely in a tack closet with a cover. I only ride in it on average of 2 days/week, so I have no idea why the leather looks so awful! It is embarrassing!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8 years ... still going strong! I have had this saddle for 8 years... 8 years of riding multiple horses a day, nearly everyday. I own a 16.5" medium tree. It was super comfortable from the first ride, and continues to be today. It fits nearly every horse I ride, all sorts of shapes and sizes. My only complaint is that the stitching on the bottom of the flap ripped in the 3rd year, on both sides, until the little leather piece fell off. I had a fabulous local leather repairer take the knee rolls off of an old saddle and attach them to protect this softer lower half of the flap. After that, everything has held up well! My best investment, aside from my horse of course!! Bottom line - I LOVE MY SADDLE

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saddle For The Price I have been riding in this saddle for almost half a year. Originally I planned on buying a higher quality used saddle, but after searching for a year with no luck finding something with in the price range of the average high school student, I decided to give the M. Toulouse saddles a shot. When I started riding in this saddle, I instantly received compliments on how much better my position looked (both on the flat and over jumps). I had no idea how much a saddle could improve my position, and this saddle does a superb job of supporting my leg. The medium tree fits both of my horses well, one is 14.3hh, the other is a 16.2hh warmblood.When compared to other new saddles in the same price range, in my opinion this is by far the nicest saddle around. It is very pretty looking, comfortable to sit in and I love the adjustable blocks. There are a few things I don't like as well. The billets look and feel cheaply made and are very stiff at first. However, after some time and elbow grease, they do soften. The leather is also very delicate, so it scratches easily. Any marks have come out with cleaning, and I have tried to prevent scratches at all costs. I'm not a huge fan of the strip of extra leather at the bottom of the flap, but don't mind putting up with it since everything else about the saddle has been great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for riders on a budget! I purchased this saddle over a year ago and have been very happy with it. It has held up very well and fits a variety of horses. I wish I would have gotten the long flap but that is personal preference. The leather is soft and that makes it easy to break in. The seat is balanced and secure. Very pleased.
