The cantle bag is positioned at the rear of the saddle. Ours is made of water-repellent oiled leather lined with waterproof canvas. It can also be used as a travelling bag thanks to the shoulder strap
The cantle bag is a luggage positioned at the back of the saddle traditionally called "Coat rack" for its substantial volume. Our cartoons are attached to the saddle by means of the back strap or the luggage rack by two straps, without resting on the back of the horse.

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!
