Saddle bags are positioned behind the cantle
without weighing on the horse’s back
They can be taken out separately. They attach to the bag holder and can be quickly detached.
The saddlebags and the bag holder can be ordered separately.
These saddlebags are made for our saddle measurements, unlike the Spahi saddlebags which can be adapted to any brand or model of saddle.
It is here in the Aveyron that Gaston Mercier saddles are manufactured. The workshop is the pounding heart of the “Mas de Vinaigre”.
From cutting out the leather to the assembly of the pieces, our team works with the precision of a watchmaker to a very high standard of quality. No defects are tolerated in the leather used for a Gaston Mercier saddle: not the slightest scratch, not the shadow of a blemish. Our staff are relentlessly stringent when choosing the leather so that your saddle can be a supreme product. They approach each saddle as a unique object, one that they will perfect with a meticulous finish, for instance coloured edging.
Our leathers come from cattle and are tanned locally in the Aveyron. All our accessories are made in our Mazamet (Tarn) workshop, an establishment where craftsmen follow the time-honoured tradition of saddlery and leatherwork. Our saddle trees are made by a firm in the Lot.
All of our products are 100%-made in the region. Gaston’s achievement as twofold European Long Distance Champion does not prevent us from thinking global and acting local!
