Manufacturer: M. Toulouse
Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle from a local tack store for about $1100.
Likes: This saddle was comfortable from the first ride. Also, it came in a nice rich brown instead of a the embarrassing light colored leather that screams "New Saddle!"
Dislikes: Unfortunately, it has foam "flocking" which is not adjustable as the wool flocking found in some saddles, and therefore could not be properly balanced for my horse. In fairness to the saddle, however, my horse requires a custom saddle. Although it was like riding on a cloud for me, it was a slow torture for my mare, who is now being seen by a chiropractor and a masseuse.
Quality: This saddle seems very well made. Softer/finer leather is used in the seat, while the flaps and straps are made in a more rugged leather.
Summary: This is a great entry level saddle if it fits one's horse properly. Its lack of adjust-ability for proper fit is its only drawback.
Usefulness Rating: 1.75 out of 5.
