Marcel Toulouse
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Marcel Toulouse
Model: Premia
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle for my new horse at a local tack shop and paid about $900.00 for it. I sat in many saddles, and this was the most comfortable.

Likes: I love this saddle! The "chocolate brown" color of the leather looks great on my black horse and doesn't take ages to darken from oiling. The flaps and seat are super sticky and the knee flap has a rolled edge which fits me like a glove. There are adjustable knee and thigh blocks that can be removed completely or just adjusted to the riders preference. The flaps and seat of the saddle are immediately soft, but still durable. I use this saddle for eventing because it gives my leg great support over fences, and keeps my butt in the saddle during cross country.

Dislikes: Other reviews mention that the strip of leather at the bottom of the flaps rubs their leg. I wear tall boots and cannot even feel the leather so as long as you ride in tall boots or chaps you should be fine. Considering it's cheaper price, I have no other complaints. The knee roll does not fit some people so make sure you sit in one before you buy it.

Quality: Amazing! Beautiful dark, sticky leather. I have had my saddle for a year and no stitching has come out. The combination of wool and foam flocked panels have reduced my reflocking costs. I frequently train with one of the top eventers in the US, Hilda Donahue, and she is always complimenting the saddle because it is so comfy and functional.

Summary: If you do eventing, trail ride, or jump you will love this saddle. It is extremely comfortable, durable and beautiful.
