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'!).

This beautifully crafted close contact saddle offers the ultimate in comfort. Ideal for both Hunt Seat and Equitation riders, as well as Jumpers who prefer a slightly deeper seat. The medium-deep seat, narrow twist and double leather flaps and knee rolls offer a secure feel, with plenty of grip to keep you tight in the tack. Complete with Comfort Fit Foam Panels and a hand-laminated beechwood and steel reinforced tree with a 10 year guarantee. 

The Denisse Double Leather saddle is comparable to the Devoucoux. (Product names, logos, brand names, trademarks and service marks featured in or referred to on this site are the property of their respective owners. No endorsement by or affiliation with those owners is intended or implied.)

    M. Toulouse Denisse Close Contact Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If your tall/ long legged this saddle is for you! Couldn't recommend this saddle enough, its got super long flaps and a perfect narrow twist. The leather is lovely and the Genesis system is sooo convenient, way easier to adjust then the Bates saddles (which I use to have).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle! I've only had this saddle for a few weeks and absolutely love it. The leather is so gorgeous. Soft and supple and feels broken in. It looks a lot more expensive than it was! The only thing I didn't like was that the billet straps are a much different color than saddle. It fits my 16.2 warm blood really well. Very happy with my purchase! Oh and my trainer loves it too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Saddle! I did a "test ride" on the M. Toulouse Denisse Close Contact Saddle and after onlly 20 minutes knew this was the saddle I wanted. It is extremely comfortable, soft, and very well made. I have ridden in it for 3 weeks and could not be happier! My trainer has commented that she likes me in this saddle. This saddle has helped me stay in the correct position wheather I am riding on the flat or jumping. Thanks also go to the customer support at Smartpak in helping me find the correct saddle and offering the "Test Ride"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the money I have had this saddle for only about a week, but it is extremely comfortable and the leather is very nice. I have a large Warmblood, who has fairly average withers and conformation and the 17 Medium tree fits him very well, it also fit all the other horses I ride with a few minor adjustments which they all get with other saddles as well. The seat is very comfortable, the blocks are not too big and do not restrict my leg while still keeping me from getting jumped off at bigger fences. The little leather strip at the bottom is actually quite a good idea, I ride so much that the flaps of my saddles wear a lot, and I cannot feel it in either my tall boots or half chaps. I got this saddle for some schooling and mostly showing. The only odd thing is how short and stiff the billet straps are, however I have been riding in saddles with longer billets than average (I ride my large WB in a 48 and QH in a 44) so I will have to get a new girth.I have two other saddles, a Prestige Michel Robert and a Beval. The Prestige is black with the characteristic white stripe, not hunter acceptable, and my horse (who did 1.40m last year) is a very enthusiastic jumper, and the Beval has no blocks or padding to speak of (it was great on my QH). I feel that this saddle measures up very well for the money spent, and is very nice to look at. It should go very well in the hunter, equitation and jumper rings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle I switched from an old saddle I bought to this. And I love it. The seat runs a tad small as I can fit in a 16.5 in Pessoa and I needed a 17 in this, but it is great, and one of the most comfortable, I ride a multitude of horses and it fits everything from super fine boned tb's to very wide backs quarter horses crossed love this saddle. And great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite any company I would recommend/buy this saddle if money where no issue- the great price is a bonus! I have the version with the genesis tree, which is a great feature. The one with that feature is darker-but either way, beautiful.The grip, zero break-in time, close contact with security, softness and perfect balance are just amazing.I have ridden in MANY saddles 3 times the price and love this one. I do the big A circuit hunter/jumper thing, if that helps. Also, I am tall and thin with really long legs. The Annice did not have enough room for my long upper leg, but this is just a little more room in front of the leg, without the weird "ultra-forward" flap that can look a little short and awkward with a long leg. This with the long flap (in my case), was perfect. Someone with a long upper-leg only, might be fine with the regular flap.Basically, the most amazing saddle. Everyone who rides in it loves it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Saddle!! I hate to get in a saddle and feel a lot of leather instead of the horse. I show in a Hermes and needed a new saddle to ride in at home. I ride a lot of different horses in several different client saddles. This saddle lets you sit so close to the horse and provides a great feel. It is comfortable and easy to break in (feels almost broken in the first time you sit in it). It is the closest thing to my Hermes that I have sat in... at just a fraction of the cost. I have already had a client ride in mine and order one, and I would definitely buy another one!
