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.

    M Toulouse Denisse Close Contact Saddle with Genesis System is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the system Have the saddle over a month, the Denisse. My one horse was hard to find a saddle that fit. They usually get the winter off, so the top line changes. The system has worked wonderfully bring them back. As the top line changes I can adjust the saddle so the saddle fits with nohot spots. Saddle was so comfortable riding the first time. Only negative is the added strip of leather on the flap right where leg lays, uncomfortable. Would recommend company not to add that there. The system has me down to one saddle and the adjusting could not be easier. For anyone that has a young horse that is stillgrowing this is what you want.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Genesis system I bought this saddle recently and was immediately impressed just by the way it felt when it first came out of the box. It's soft and just a little grippy, and it's like a couch to ride in. My only disappointment was that I couldn't use my old leathers (which had worked perfectly with my old saddle for years) with it because they created an uncomfortable buckle bump. However, the matching Toulouse leathers have a very flat buckle and it doesn't look like I'll have trouble now that I bought them to go with it. Genesis system is uncomplicated, very easy & relatively quick to adjust. Overall pretty impressed with this beautiful saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it! I was having issues with my horse going lame from ill saddle fit, and went through several saddles to try to fix it. Eventually, I took a trip to the Smartpak Store and began my saddle quest. I sat in so many saddles it was crazy. I brought a saddle back home, and it didn't fit my horse so I went all the way back to the store and found this saddle. Best. Choice. In. Saddles.It fits my hard to size horse easily, it is EXTREMELY comfortable, and doesn't hurt your seat bones when you wait at shows. I can go from jumping to a flat class easy in this saddle. It has just the right amount of fancy stitching to make it stand out but not so many folds and lines that it looks like an elephant skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Saddle Purchased this saddle when I wanted to go into Hunter Jumpers and it was probably the best decision I've made. You can really feel your horse when you're riding, and yet still have close contact with the saddle. I've also done flatwork in this saddle and people always compliment my seat. I can't describe how soft and supple the leather is. I would definitely buy this saddle again. Especially considering I ride 5-7 different horses. With Genesis, Its easy to adjust to the horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it, but wrong for my horse I had this saddle as a test ride and really liked it, despite the fact that it was too small for me. I would have gladly purchased it in the right size/flap length, but the genesis gullet did not go wide enough for my warmblood--even opened all the way.The leather was beautiful and soft right out of the box and the seat was comfortable and correct. The genesis system is ingenious compared to other adjustable gullets I have tried. Very easy to change!
