Don't let the weight alone scare you away, assuming it fits your horse well. The saddle I use on my mare is not light (generally around 32 lbs, loaded), but it fits her so well I am afraid to even try something else. The only time I have had issue with the weight was trying to get it back on during the later holds of 100s. But I will take a few instances of looking like a drunk trying to throw a sack of potatoes for how well it fits her!
