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 Celine Close Contact Saddle is hand crafted of natural, tanned, pigmented, aniline-finished high-quality leather which will accept oil. Our leather is a natural product because we allow our cows to live and roam naturally. As a result, our leather is stronger, though there may be natural marks and variations. We carefully choose the ideal cut of each individual hide in order to minimize these natural occurrences, and we offer a ten-year guarantee on our hand-laminated beech wood, steel reinforced trees. The Celine is a top-seller because of its great value and versatile, traditional design.

    M. Toulouse Celine Close Contact Saddle is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saddle I love the saddle! It is pretty stiff at first but breaks in easily and quick! super comfy!!! lovely color! the chocolate colored stirrup leathers match best! Would buy it again!

    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.
