My husband rode a reproduction Mclellen saddle for years, both reenacting and trail riding. He swears it is the most comfortable saddle he'd ever used, and really liked the fact it was so light. The attached pic is from a trail ride several years ago (I know the saddle is way too far forward, don't know why, other pics from the same day show it in the correct position, but this is the best shot of the saddle itself). A little off topic, the mare is the same mare I just brought home after pulling her out of what I THOUGHT was going to be a good home. If you're interested in the difference a few hundred lbs makes in a horse take a look at my thread under horse nutrition.
