Horse Tack Review


M. Toulouse
Premia
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


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

Purchase: I found this saddle at my local tack store for $1050. I did not actually purchase the saddle, I just took it on a trial.

Likes: In the store, I absolutely loved the saddle, it is beautiful, well made and the seat is extremely comfortable. I am wide in the hips and it seated me comfortably. I loved the calfskin leather and how the knee/thigh rolls are adjustable.

Dislikes: When riding in the saddle, there is a strip of leather at the bottom of the flap. As stated in another review, it is extremely irritating. Halfway through my lesson, it was rubbing against my calf so much I would find myself pulling my leg off the saddle just to avoid it. It is wider in the twist then I preferred.

Quality: The saddle was made out of quality calfskin leather, was in a beautiful color and looked like a well made saddle.

Summary: As much as I love to sit on this saddle when not on my horse, it was not a pleasant ride and I promptly returned it after my lesson to exchange it for a different saddle. If the leather piece was not at the bottom of the flap it would have been 100 times better. Definitely try this one out before you buy!
