M. Toulouse
Lucia II
Jumping Saddles



Manufacturer: M. Toulouse
Model: Lucia II
Category: Jumping Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle used on eBay. It was only 6 months old and I got it (with shipping) for only $600, GREAT DEAL! I needed an XW saddle for my 4 1/2 yr. old Percheron. I wanted one that would not only fit his broad back but wouldn't be super expensive since he will be growing and changing a lot in the coming years and a custom saddle now would be pointless.

Likes: I LOVE this saddle. The XW tree in the Lucia II is truly extra wide!!! I was worried that it wouldn't be wide enough for the round/no wither draft horse back, but it is actually a smidge too wide (which is just fine). I had read some models of Toulouse saddles ran narrow, but not the Lucia II model. The leather is super soft and comfy but also holds up well. This model is the double leather version. I was worried it get torn up easily, but it has really stayed nice. I am very impressed with what a quality saddle this is for the price!

Dislikes: Nothing! This saddle is great. I couldn't ask for a better non-custom fit for my horse and I love riding in it.

Quality: The leather is very soft and comfy yet durable (I was surprised by this). The billets could be a little nicer but with oil are just fine. The foam panels seem comfortable for my horse and make the saddle very light. Overall a well made saddle and well worth the price (even the retail price).

Summary: Excellent saddle for the price. The XW tree is ACTUALLY XW. The leather is very nice and holds up well. Pleasantly surprised!
