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.
