After my third ride in my new Toulouse saddle, I have to say I am sold.

It needs a little shimming to keep wither clearance, which a corrective pad is supplying now. I plan on having a saddle fitter look at it and see if a flocking adjustment at the front of the panels will fix that. It fits perfectly along the back.

Last night I conditioned it with Fiebing's Aussie leather treatment and today when I rode it was like my legs had velcro. I've never felt so balanced and centered on a saddle. Posting with the motion was super easy in terms of effort and balance.

I can't wait to jump it.

No brands in particular

Saddle - custom made to fit (trooper, endurance or stock saddle), although I'll test someones brand name at times to check them out none ever match up well enough.
Bridle - custom made bitless bridle/halter combination.
Cinch - mohair
Stirrups - endurance or covered, depending on the riding I'm doing.
Blanket - 100% wool (serves a dual purpose)
Breast collar - Trooper style.
Boots - WWI style military leggings over any good brand of walking boots or better yet a high top shoe (e.g. Timberland)
Clothing - comfortable and durable..
Hats - Wide brimmed to keep off the sun and the rain

You're on my list for the future Kevin, I love the one you made for Bill! Just need to convince DH that I really need another saddle, sigh.

Saddles - Prestige and Tekna
Saddle Pads - Classique Equine - love the sueded dressage pads
Stirrups - MDC Super Sport Stirrups - Nice wide base, offset so you can change the angle and I don't lose my irons anymore. The owner of the company is fabulous and will send you pairs to try as long as you guarantee with a credit card.
Tall Boots - Mountain Horse actually fits my wide calf very comfortably.

I forgot to mention I also really like the BR brand. Their "Event Collection" quilted cotton saddle pads and fleece polo wraps are my favourites. I have a few in different colours. I also have a set of the open front tendon boots and fetlock boots, but I'm not sure yet if I will like them or not, I haven't used them yet. The pads and polos are really great though, love them!

BR Riding Equipment

Mildot, if you don't mind me asking, what model Toulouse do you have? I was just looking on their website, the Annice (I think that's the one) looks like a really nice saddle for a great price.
Also, has anyone used their leather girths? I really like the one with the elastic on both ends, I'd like to hear some opinions on them, if anyone has one.

It's a Jennine Genesis.

The girth I bought to go along with it is a Lettia Clik AP girth Union Hill Equestrian Products & Supplies - A/P Girths
