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'!).

The M Toulouse Denisse Close Contact Saddle with Genesis System is a beautifully crafted close contact saddle that 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-lined wool) 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.)

  • Close Contact
  • Half Deep Seat

This saddle also features the innovative Genesis adjustable gullet system! With its integral parts constructed of case-hardened steel, the Genesis is also the only adjustable gullet system backed by a 10 year guarantee.

Adjustments to the Genesis system are made quickly and easily in three steps using the included tools: unlock the gullet, adjust the gullet width and lock in the new width. All your adjustments are made almost instantly and without taking the saddle apart. A small, discrete flap underneath the saddle is all you need to open. And you can adjust your Genesis gullet as often as you need for every horse you ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I buy it sooner I was having a hard time finding a saddle that fit my new rescue TB, the adjust tree made it so much easier. The saddle is beautiful and so comfortable. I was very happy with the service smartpak offered and made purchasing this saddle so much easier. Worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice look and feel, but didn't suit us. I liked the look and feel of the saddle straight out of the box. However, my leathers were nearly impossible to attach (took a really long time), and it doesn't sit on my horse right - I would have needed a riser. I much prefer buying a saddle that fits the horse without having to make do by adding extra padding or whatever to make it fit the horse. When sitting in the saddle, it was slippery to me and I could never find the "sweet spot" in the saddle - I kept flopping around trying to find a secure seat, to no avail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saddle I use this saddle for AQHA shows, on the flat and over fences and it's awesome. Super grippy leather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & Secure I bought this saddle a month ago & just got back from our first 2 day show in it. I have been a primarily western rider and needed an English saddle I felt a little more secure in for hunter under saddle classes on my green horse. I always felt insecure in my slippery collegiate. I adore this saddle! Extremely comfortable right out of the box with no break in time. I appreciate the wide seat and non-slippery leather. I felt extremely confident & secure in this saddle from day one. This saddle has really helped boost my confidence & enjoyment of English riding. The only aspect of this saddle I wouldn't give 5 stars too are the billet straps. They are a stiff, thick leather that are difficult to use even after conditioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get your money's worth! I have now had this saddle for about a month. Years ago I joined the tree-less movement and bought a high quality western tree-less saddle. Well the popular saying is that once you go tree-less it is hard to go back. Your horse now understands what real comfort is. I find that saying to be true. When I wanted to switch back to English I couldn't find a well reviewed tree-less English saddle. Thus the buying frenzy of English saddles (online of course) began. Needless to say in total I spent about 5-6 thousand dollars on saddles that were a close fit but not quite. My horse had a wonderful way of telling me he hated his new saddles by bucking, rearing, or just refusing to move forward. I have a 15.3 polish Arab. In the withers he is built like an Arab...kind of. His back is built like QH, and his butt is built like a Morgan. Wonderful horse to look at but VERY hard to fit! So after returning all of the useless saddles I waited about a year, mostly out of defeat. Then I saw this saddle on SmartPak. I looked at just about every online review, and every YouTube video in existence. Thus I finally pulled the trigger and got a saddle on SmartPak's trial experience. The saddle was on my door step 48 hrs later! Unfortunately for me I did not anticipate such an early arrival, and my horse was having his chiropractic work the same day it arrived. My Chiropractor told me to not ride for 48 hrs, and only light work for another 48 hrs. Considering I have excellent listening skills, I tried it that night! HOLY COW! My horse had a sore back from the body work but still did awesome! No bucking, rearing, or refusal to move. He was happy! I tried the saddle again a couple of days later...and still he was happy! I immediately called customer support and told them I was keeping the test ride saddle. They must have thought I was crazy, but I refuse to give it up! It was in excellent condition and didn't even look used. Plus I was afraid if a switch saddles, I would be giving up that one "magic" saddle that actually worked! I love this saddle, and anyone with a hard to fit horse is going to love it to. I wish I had found it sooner!
