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

    M. Toulouse Celine Close Contact is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 14.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfection in saddle form This saddle is the best! I'm not the best at sitting the trot or canter, but this saddle is so comfortable, it's hard to believe I ever had trouble! One of my friends who is a great rider, said that it was one of the best saddles shes seen! You will love how soft the leather is. I have had my saddle for about a month and it is a dream! I hope you buy this saddle it is amazing!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balance Restored This M. Toulouse Close Contact saddle is great. My seat position problem -- riding behind the motion -- has been solved. The removable knee pads allow for the closer contact my leg needed to come forward. And the compliments on its appearance just keep coming. I've oiled it and the light color has just gotten richer and the leather -- butter doesn't describe it. Breaking in was a breeze -- just watch out for water until you get some oil on it as the light color leather shows spots. The seat is very comfortable. I had a friend who had a custom made $10,000 saddle recommend this -- I'm glad I heeded her advice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice saddle for the money This is going to be hard to believe but I liked the Celene as much as I like my $3,000 Amerigo. (And I do like my Amerigo!) The Celene fit my med. backed horse really well. The leather is quite nice and has an already broken-in feel. I would absolutely buy this saddle if I were in the market. It is perfect for a first saddle since the fit seems flexible and the leather is slightly "tacky" giving a secure seat. It looks like it would also be very durable even though it is the fine grain leather.
