Question Toulouse +4 Monoflap?

Hi everyone!

New to this forum, so you've probably seen a TON of questions about this saddle.
I was wondering if anybody has ridden in the newer Toulouse PLUS FOUR monoflap? If so, how much forward is the flap than the original Toulouse monoflap? Do the trees run true to size?

I did a test ride in one through SmartPAK and HATED it. The Wide tree wasn't even remotely wide enough for my warmblood/tb cross. But worse than that, the stirrup bars are at a really wierd angle that positioned my legs at a backwards angle so they kept rubbing against the calf block. I didn't have the regular to compare it to, but the panels were pretty forward.

I was so disgusted that I thought about it and realized that I have never once been unhappy in a Stubben, so I gave up and called a Stubben saddle fitter and she brought out 8 different saddle for me to try. I ended up getting the Roxanne and it is fabulous. THey di have a monoflap now - the Excalibur - that I rode in and it is really comfy. It has massive calf blocks though and my horse is still quite green so I need something I can put my legs far back in occassionally, so it didn't work for me. It's quite a bit more than the Toulouse, but worth trying if you can afford it and are looking for a quality monoflap. You really cannot go wrong with a Stubben.

If you're thinking about the Toulouse mono, go to Smartpak and do the testride option. That way you can try it and send it back for a full refund if it isn't what you want.
