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 Premia is hand crafted of natural vegetable tanned, pigmented, aniline finished leather which will accept oil. All leather is tanned by French tanning methods. Classically designed by Marcel Toulouse, Master Saddler in France, to meet all the demands of the horse and rider. Hand laminated beechwood, steel reinforced tree with stainless steel stirrup bar. 

For a custome feel in the saddle, the Premia Close Contact saddle in soft covered leather is a great choice. Its nicely padded seat is slightly flatter with a medium/narrow twist and a slightly forward flap, with moveable knee and thigh blocks that can be repositioned based on rider preference. Anatomic knee rolls and leather reinforcement (wear guard) at flap bottom.

    M. Toulouse Premia Close Contact is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful saddle! I'm only about 2 weeks into riding with this saddle but, so far, I have to say that I'm really impressed. I purchased the Genesis option on this little gem b/c I'm currently riding lesson horses so the ability to adjust is an absolute must if I'm going to be spending almost 2K on a saddle. Like others have said, the leather is so unbelievably soft from the get go. I haven't noticed the "scuffing" issue but I've been using a leather conditioner designed for fine leather and not oil so that may help. The fit is great for the current wide backed horse although I did have to purchase a wedge pad to lift me up a bit in the back...not a big deal IMO, though. And I'd rate my own comfort an A+! It's got just enough deep of a seat to give me a little security for jumping and the softness of the leather gives me enough "stickiness" to feel secure in the saddle, as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable! Beautiful leather! I've had my new saddle almost a month now and am completely obsessed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle! I bought this saddle for my daughter almost 3 years ago when we bought her first horse. The saddle has held up incredibly well - it almost looks brand new. Not only is it pretty (the color is very rich), but it's also very comfortable. Our horse has broadened out a bit, so I'm planning to buy the wide soon, and we are hoping it fits because she doesn't really want a different saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be sad to see it go! I originally got this saddle because it was one of the only long flap options in my price range. It is the most comfortable saddle that I've ever ridden in and puts me in a wonderful position. Fit my old horse perfectly but very sadly doesn't have the wither clearance my new horse needs. I have had it for close to two years and it still looks brand new, even with my notoriously inconsistent cleanings and conditionings!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle! I've had it for about 7 months now and i have nothing bad to say about it! It's extremely comfortable; all the people that ride in it are amazed by how comfy it is. the color is beautiful. I bought it used and color has stayed exactly the same and hasn't rubbed off at all. I clean about once every two weeks but doesn't really need to be conditioned often. My horse is very comfortable in it, at least way more than my old saddle. The leathers very sticky and really helps me keep my position. I trail ride at least 2x a week in it, and use it in lessons and hacking the other days.
