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 Verona Monoflap Saddle provides a closer feel to your horse with its monoflap design.  M. Toulouse saddles are hand crafted from natural, tanned, pigmented, aniline-finished high-quality leather.  The leather is a natural product and as a result, stronger and more durable.  Designed by Marcel Toulouse, Master Saddler in France.

Favorite Features

  • Deep seat for an effective aid in the saddle
  • Medium twist

  • Stainless steel stirrup bars

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Took awhile to get used to. Had the 17" and was running into knee blocks. Moved up to 18" and all lis wonderful. Takes some time to get used to it, but it puts me in a great postion, my horse loves it and it is a great saddle for the price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle!! I recently purchased the M Toulouse Monoflap after selling my Prestige Dressage 2000, the Prestige was not a deep enough of a seat, and not matter what I did I could not feel my seat bones the way that I needed to, the twist was also too wide. I needed another Dressage saddle on a budget and this one just fit the bill!My first ride in the saddle, I will admit I was not convinced, and that was due to the piping as it was rubbing me in my upper thigh, not in a good spot! But I gave it a 2nd ride and I was sure I could get the piping to break in, because other than that I loved the saddle! My 2nd ride I was able to tell that my horse was moving so much freer through his shoulder! We had a lovely extended trot as well as a stretchy trot, I could really feel him pop up through his back! It was so different than my other rides in the Prestige!!!This saddle will also teach you to ride correctly, it is hard to tell from the pictures but the flap is much straighter, like a traditional dressage saddle. The twist is narrow enough that I can really feel my horse under me and move freer through my hips!So I decided to keep the saddle and in doing so I was determined to get the piping to lay more flush with the rest of the saddle, my solution was simple and easy!! I took the blunt end of a pen cap (the plastic pen type) and pressed down on the piping, moving up and down the saddle as I worked. I started with one side so I could see the difference, and it worked! The piping actually became softer and lay flatter! So I repeated with the other side.The next day I also rode in my favorite Kerritts riding tights and had NO RUBBING! The next few rides I worked in the piping along with some neatsfooot oil and I can not be happier with this saddle! The saddle has lovely grip over the surface and I have already cleaned it a few times with normal saddle soap, you won't need to oil the saddle at all! It breaks in so nicely. I did oil the girth straps and is now starting to feel like butter! (after less than month of riding in it), I know some users said they have stayed stiff, but no in my experience!!! The saddle will sit you pretty deep, maybe not as deep for instance as the Albion SLK, but for me this is what fit my budget at the time and you can't go wrong! My horses canter is huge as it is, and coming from a Hunter background I am still learning to sit up and deeper!Also some reviews I read complained about the quality, but honestly this saddle looks and feels just as nice as the County I own for jumping!!Thanks Smart Pak for offering this saddle at a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I ordered this for my 15 yr old daughter. She's 5 ft 5", normal weight, got the 17.5" seat. Her horse is 15 hh, TB/QH/Mustang/Percheron mix (yes, she's totally cute, or funny looking depending on your perspective). The saddle fits both of them really well. The seat is nice and deep, and puts my daughter in a great position, but she does not feel trapped the way other dressage saddles have made her feel. It sits nicely on the horse and her shoulder is 100% free to move. The leather looks good and feels good. It is slightly sticky (in a good way). All around, seems like a great saddle for a great price. The only question in my mind is long term durability - but we'll just have to wait and see.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fit the horse but not the rider The wide saddle size fit my Wide-MedWide horse very well. Good contact on the front and back panels. Nice wide gullet. Straight billets-no point billet. Nice slightly grippy leather. Comfortable medium to slightly medium narrow twist. Leather felt and looked above average.The problem is in the construction of a back welting/piping that comes around the back of the saddle and goes under the flap. It hit my inner thigh at a very uncomfortable spot. Since it is a welting/piping it probably would not soften with use/age.Skinny thighed friends sat in the saddle could still slightly feel this welting under their thighs.Everybody's conformation is different so I would still recommend at least trying this saddle if you are looking for nice low-mid range monoflap.The Smartpak trial ride program worked great. No problem with returning this saddle.
