How heavy is heavy? If the saddle fits your horse well, a few extra pounds is much better than a lighter, ill-fitting saddle.

My F'n'E is an older model, so it's on the heavier side to start with.. when you add in my saddlebags and water bottles and other misc crap, it weighs about 30 lb. Dream carts both it and myself around happily. I am loathe to try a newer (lighter) saddle because we have never had a saddle fit issue in this one.. and I am of the if it ain't broke, don't fix it sort.

So don't let the weight worry be the only factor in deciding on another saddle.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I ride in a wintec dressage with biothane gear from Running Bear. I have two sets - one in bright blue with a neon yellow overlay and then this one which is a basic black with maroon overlay - this pic is from a camping trip in the Bandera State Natural Area, Bandera TX

You better get in the saddle and get going! If you lived near me, I'd say we would have to set up a time to meet and trade mounts for awhile. LOL!

I L O V E mules. In fact, there is one breed that I can't wait to own and its a gaited mule!

There is just no better mix for riding in the hills than that - talk about an all terrain vehicle!
