And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed! Great saddle! I did the test ride program to make sure it would fit my extremely difficult to fit and picky arab. He loved it from the second I set it on his back! Great quality and very comfortable to ride. Highly recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a nice saddle This saddle is comfortable and functional. I believe it is priced well. The only thing I don't like is that the leather seems to scratch up easily on the flaps, I would recommend frequent oilings.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy a better saddle I had been eyeing this saddle for a while, since it was a good price, beautiful havana color, and a close contact like I had been looking for. I ordered this saddle through the test ride program (which I love with SmartPak since they have free shipping both ways), but I was sadly underwhelmed when it arrived. The leather was stiff and cheap feeling, and the beautiful color was more reddish and looked like cheap dye. I would recommend spending the extra couple hundred dollars to get a better quality saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Saddle! I was looking for a nice saddle that wasn't too expensive and this was absolutely perfect! I have had it now for almost a year and it has only gotten better with use. I feel very secure in this saddle and like the feel of the leather. It also fits my 15.2 h Thoroughbred great! With my old saddle I had to use a front riser, but this saddle fits her with just a regular pad. I would definately recommend this saddle for anyone looking for a good product on a budget.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saddle in the price range I absolutely love my Celine! There was virtually zero break in time and my position has improved dramatically ever since I started riding in it. I use it on different horses with a wide variety of shapes and it seems to fit all of them nicely.The leather on the flaps starts out a bit stiff and "cheap" feeling, but it softens up wonderfully with olive oil...I know some say it eats through stitching, but I haven't had any issues so far.My saddle has gotten 6-10 rides/week for the past 3.5 years and it shows very little wear. It's a wonderful saddle that happens to have an affordable price tag!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from enjoying the ride Quite honestly, I should have bought a new saddle long ago. I had tried another brand but the seat was inadequately cushioned. This one is far better. I also like the wider channel of this one (don't know if other M Toulouse models are comparable) I have no experience with higher end saddles, but for my purposes this will work.My 16.1 Tb mare is quite athletic, so I appreciate a bit more security, which this saddle provides. Also, she seems happier with it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too bad it didn't fit! I got this saddle through smartpaks test ride program, it looked great, felt great, but unfortunately it did not fit my high withered TB. I really liked this saddle but it just didn't fit my horse.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
