Why We Love This

The M. Toulouse Premia is hand crafted of natural vegetable tanned, pigmented, aniline finished leather which will accept oil. All leather is tanned by French tanning methods. Classically designed by Marcel Toulouse, Master Saddler in France, to meet all the demands of the horse and rider. Hand laminated beechwood, steel reinforced tree with stainless steel stirrup bar. 

For a custome feel in the saddle, the Premia Close Contact saddle in soft covered leather is a great choice. Its nicely padded seat is slightly flatter with a medium/narrow twist and a slightly forward flap, with moveable knee and thigh blocks that can be repositioned based on rider preference. Anatomic knee rolls and leather reinforcement (wear guard) at flap bottom.

Color: Chocolate

What Customers Say:
M. Toulouse Premia Close Contact Saddle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my saddle!! I got this for my birthday over 7 months ago. I was tired of having to readjust to different lesson saddles, not to mention that all the lesson saddles were super uncomfortable. Most everyone who has their own saddle at my barn owns a $3000+ one which is quite crazy, but this saddle is as pretty and comfy as the rlly expensive French ones. Its color is stunning!! Such a deep chocolate. I ride many different lesson horses and this has fit all of them well (i do use a half pad). I have the medium tree, mainly ride thoroughbreds and warmbloods and compete hunter/jumper. Highly recommend for the girlies who want their own comfy saddle at a more reasonable price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my M. Toulouse! I have had my saddle for 10 YEARS! I am IN LOVE and will never buy another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Versatile, Long Lasting Saddle! I bought this saddle (I can't believe it!) almost five years ago, and it has held up SO well for so long. When I use saddle soap and some conditioner on it, it looks almost brand new again. It does have some scuffs now, but that is to be expected after so much constant use. I went from riding a large boned 16 hand paint in it, to my current 14 hand Arab and it fit both horses amazingly well. The saddle is so comfy, anyone who has tried it has fallen in love immediately. I did find the knee blocks to be too large for me, and since I have a lesson student who rides my horse, I do not use them anymore. I LOVE this saddle and when I need a new one I will purchase the same again. I use it for jumping, hunter equitation, hunter pace, and trails/hacks with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful saddle! I'm only about 2 weeks into riding with this saddle but, so far, I have to say that I'm really impressed. I purchased the Genesis option on this little gem b/c I'm currently riding lesson horses so the ability to adjust is an absolute must if I'm going to be spending almost 2K on a saddle. Like others have said, the leather is so unbelievably soft from the get go. I haven't noticed the "scuffing" issue but I've been using a leather conditioner designed for fine leather and not oil so that may help. The fit is great for the current wide backed horse although I did have to purchase a wedge pad to lift me up a bit in the back...not a big deal IMO, though. And I'd rate my own comfort an A+! It's got just enough deep of a seat to give me a little security for jumping and the softness of the leather gives me enough "stickiness" to feel secure in the saddle, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable! Beautiful leather! I've had my new saddle almost a month now and am completely obsessed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle! I bought this saddle for my daughter almost 3 years ago when we bought her first horse. The saddle has held up incredibly well - it almost looks brand new. Not only is it pretty (the color is very rich), but it's also very comfortable. Our horse has broadened out a bit, so I'm planning to buy the wide soon, and we are hoping it fits because she doesn't really want a different saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be sad to see it go! I originally got this saddle because it was one of the only long flap options in my price range. It is the most comfortable saddle that I've ever ridden in and puts me in a wonderful position. Fit my old horse perfectly but very sadly doesn't have the wither clearance my new horse needs. I have had it for close to two years and it still looks brand new, even with my notoriously inconsistent cleanings and conditionings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle! I've had it for about 7 months now and i have nothing bad to say about it! It's extremely comfortable; all the people that ride in it are amazed by how comfy it is. the color is beautiful. I bought it used and color has stayed exactly the same and hasn't rubbed off at all. I clean about once every two weeks but doesn't really need to be conditioned often. My horse is very comfortable in it, at least way more than my old saddle. The leathers very sticky and really helps me keep my position. I trail ride at least 2x a week in it, and use it in lessons and hacking the other days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle I bought this saddle when I first got back into riding about a year ago. It is sticky enough for the jumpers and eventing, and has held up very well! I would recommend this to anyone who isn't looking to spend a ton of money but still get a great quality saddle

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Saddle, and Pretty to Boot I am actually a dressage rider but I wanted a saddle that could take me anywhere (trail riding, a gallop across a field, if I ever wanted to have a little jumping lesson just for fun, and on the flat) and I got just that. The saddle is super comfortable and I can sit the trot in it with absolutely no problem the leather is very soft as well and makes the saddle look more expensive than it is. I got the Genesis tree for even more versatility and I think it is a very well done and easy to adjust gullet. My only complaint is I wish the foam panels were different as they are a little hard in my opinion but that may change with more ware.
