M. Toulouse Platinum saddles are made with premium, soft leather and have wool-flocked panels. M. Toulouse saddles are hand crafted of natural, tanned, pigmented, aniline-finished high-quality leather which will accept oil. Our leather is a natural product because we allow our cows to live and roam naturally. As a result, our leather is stronger, though there may be natural marks and variations. We carefully choose the ideal cut of each individual hide in order to minimize these natural occurrences, and we offer a ten-year guarantee on our hand-laminated beech wood, steel reinforced trees. The seat has extra padding, which gives you a more comfortable ride.
