m. toulouse... which model?

I've decided to order an m. Toulouse to try out on my gelding. I really like them for the price and I've heard nothing but good things.

There are so many models to choose from and I'm stumped!

I am mostly a jumper. The only time id ride hunter would be schooling shows so it doesn't have to be a real hunter saddle.

Any ideas just let me know! Thanks.

I don't know if this would help you, but I have two saddles
an AP wintec that I used for general riding, trails, lessons, and I did jump in it
Then I got a close contact Crump. I use this all the time now. I really like jumping in it, and it really helps your position when you canter.

Since you like to jump, I would recommend a close contact(:

the AP, the wintec, has knee rolls, and the seat of the saddle comes up a bit higher. Also the panels are a bit wider.

With the CC, the crump, there are no knee rolls, the seat is much flatter, and the panels are much smaller.

I have the Toulouse florina. I love it but it is discontinued. You may be able to find a used one. I would stay away from the calfskin Toulouse saddles the second layer of leather tends to rub out in the first six months of use. Classic saddlery always have nice Toulouse saddles for sale very well priced.

Have you looked at the Annice and Danise (not sure if I spelled those right)? I looked at them for myself. I have a Stubben at the moment but have considered purchasing one of the Toulouses. Those saddles are dreamy soft, the leather is seriously creamy. It is so comfortable. And I know they have a saddle called the Sienna, I'm not sure if that would be too deep a seat for you or not. Check out Dover Saddlery's website because they sell Toulouses and if you look online you might get a little bit of a better idea? Good luck.

God bless, englishaqh (:

I have MT Claudine. Love it, and my trainer liked it a lot too. But they are not very common. Annice is a good model too. Be careful, because different models by MT fit differently.

I had the Annice and LOVED it. I only sold it because it didn't fit my horse properly. I now have a Bates and while I'm happy with it, I feel like that Annice was so much more comfortable.

I have an older Celine and I LOVE it. I bought it off a friend for $400 because my Collegiate no longer fits Excel. It has a flatter seat which many people don't like, but it works for me and I've had it out on XC, through water jumps, in hunter shows, jumper shows....

Why pick? SmartPak has a bunch of H/J M. Toulouse models available for test ride- and they offer free shipping both ways.
