At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

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 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 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 Annice Close Contact Saddle with Genesis System is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from That strip of leather is a deal-breaker Got the test saddle and immediately understood why people complain about that stupid strip of leather on the bottom of the flaps. M. Toulouse says, "Full grain leather reinforcement at the bottom of the flap help protect against wear." I have owned a lot of saddles, many of them pretty old, and never saw one that needed reinforcement there. The test saddle was pretty broken in and the strips were still stiff enough to chafe my calves through chaps, heavy boot socks and breeches. Forget about putting my leg on my horse--after ten minutes my legs refused to go near the flaps no matter how hard I tried to override them. The saddle itself was well-made with nice leather. The Annice was not a good match for me, but once I adjusted it to my mare she loved it, and after years of wrestling gullets into Bates saddles I really appreciate the ease of the Genesis system. There were enough pluses that I've ordered another M. Toulouse--but took care to choose one without those stupid strips!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle! My mare is a hard fit for saddles. She has huge wide shoulders that normal wide tree saddles cant even handle. The Genesis system in these Toulouse saddles is so amazing. It literally takes 1 minutes to adjust the saddle and its great because your horse changes so much being in/out of work. I couldnt decide between the Dennise and the Annice so thanks to the Smart Pak Test Ride system, I took both out on trial. I had a hard time choosing but I did choose the Annice. Its more forward flap gave me a better seat and I like the adjustable thigh blocks. Both saddles were great but the Annice was just overall a better fit for us! If you are on the fence, try this saddle. I dont think you will be disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle Bought this saddle well over a year and a half ago and couldn't be happier with it. The leather has maintained a great appearance and is grippy. My mare is hard to fit so the genesis system has been great for her many changes (getting more muscular and fit).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this saddle! I bought this saddle after trying a Pessoa and my friend's MTL Annice Genesis. I had narrowed it down to these two after a saddle fitting at a local tack store where pretty much nothing fit my horse's back properly. He is wide and has high withers and is downhill. This saddle fits him like a glove. I love the adjustable tree. Riding in it is amazing too. I have always had trouble keeping my legs back and the extra stitched on part that is supposed to be to protect the edge of the saddle flap sort of gives my boot something to "stick" to. The leather is soft and "grippy". I love this saddle and highly recommend it! Smart Pak was the best price I could find on this saddle as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous saddle! I bought this saddle about 3 months ago and I am in love. It is the most comfortable saddle ever. The thigh blocks take some getting used to but i have never used them before this saddle. The leather is amazing but does darken a few shades with cleaning. The Genesis system is so easy to use and fits both my Warmbloods different backs perfectly. As for the other reviews on the strip of leather on the bottom. I didn't even notice it. It was a tad stiff at first but now i don't even know its there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing saddle! I've had this saddle for a few weeks and I absolutely love it! It fits my warmblood perfectly! The leather is buttery soft and beautiful and so comfortable! The Genesis system literally takes a few seconds to adjust. Love this saddle!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange Piece of Leather Makes It Uncomfortable There is a piece of leather at the bottom of each flap that left a mark on my inner calves. While riding, it was very noticeable and uncomfortable. I thought I might learn to live with it but thought that I dont' want to spend this kind of money and know I have to "get used to" something that hurts me from the beginning. This also got caught on the top of my half chaps as I was riding. Otherwise it's a gorgeous saddle, has a great leather top that keeps you from sliding and was close to what I thought was going to be my ideal saddle. If that leather piece wasn't there, I would have seriously considered buying this saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saddle i have ridden in!  When I was looking for a saddle for my horse - I knew I needed a genesis! I went to the SmartPak store to try saddles, and as soon as I sat in the M. Toulouse Annice Genesis - I knew it was the saddle for me! It's easily adjustable, i can adjust it in less then 20 seconds! The leather is such a nice quality leather. It has an extra grip and holds you in the perfect position. My horse and I love it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not For Long Legs I just sent this saddle back today from the test ride. I am so thankful that SmartPak has this test ride system available! This saddle has a very nice broken in feel to the leather and the genesis tree is great. However, I had bruises on my calves and thighs after the first ride. The flap is way too short and the extra piece of leather at the bottom is super stiff. The top of my half chaps also got stuck on the flap several times while ridding. I tried riding in it one last time with my field boots and I could still feel the rubbing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Saddle Great for my horse with high withers. Adjustable pads are awesome and helps keep your legs in place while jumping. Sticky leather for additional help keeping your legs in place while jumping. Saved me from falling on 2 occasions. Color is a little funky but I have not tried darkening oil. Bought matching bridle but it is really not the same color. Overall an awesome ride in the saddle!!! I don't think you will be unhappy with all the bells and whistles on this saddle!!!
