Horse Tack Review


M. Toulouse
Legano
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: M. Toulouse
Model: Legano
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle for $800 new from Horse-Rider-etc. I first sat in a Toulouse (the Noelle) at a local tack store, and fell in love with the leather. It is butter soft, with a grippy tack to it. I had been eyeing the Pessoa Legacy XL (around $1,900), and the Toulouse Legano was modeled specifically after it, so I thought it was worth a try.

Likes: * The leather!! It is beautiful, and breaks in immediately. From the first ride, it feels as though it molds to your shape. It is comparable to my Devoucoux leather ($4,000 saddle)!!! * It truly does mimic the Legacy XL in every way...it just has nicer leather!! * Conditions beautifully * EASY to sit in!!! Bring on sitting trot with no stirrups!!

Dislikes: * The leather strip along the bottom (to avert wear) can be uncomfortable if you forget your half chaps; otherwise no problem. * The seat size is a little generous * It put my leg slightly ahead of me (as did the Legacy XL)

Quality: Overall well made. Good sized gullet and weight distribution on the horse's back The billet straps tend to lie toward the back of the underflap on the saddle. I found the tree to be slightly narrower than some other medium trees (I am switching for a wide tree)

Summary: The best saddle you could possibly by for this price range--hands down!!
