Tucker's are really nice saddles. I think you're going to be very pleased with it.

Thanks sr I am hoping I got the right tree size. They had Regular Wide and Extra wide. And I went with wide. So hopefully no returns :)

While I have never ridden in one myself, I have heard good things about them.

Can't wait to hear your impressions!

I think they are very nice comfortable trail saddles, but despite the name arnt they pretty heavy ? I don't recall seeing them on any endurance rides. I do see them alot on trail rides though. Seem to be well liked by casual riders.

Darrin I believe their weight is around 22-23 lbs. Tucker's can run a tad narrow with the tree. They are definitely comfortable. If I did endurance, I would probably opt for a synthetic saddle to lighten up the weight even more.

Absolutely a GREAT SADDLE!!!! Well worth the money. The saddle is about 25lbs and fits great not only me but my horse.

The only thing I have to learn is how to ride in those stirrups since they have a pad in it. I have a bad habit of standing in my stirrups and that extra cushion just seems to bring it out more so I did alot of stirrup less riding and my oh my was the seat so comfy.

would definitely reccommend this saddle :)
