I've recently been kinda shopping around for a saddle that I can take with me to college next year. I was wondering if any one had any suggestions on where I can look to find one and maybe some brands I could check out? I don't want one that is super expensive and fancy basically because its going to be used to start colts and general pleasure riding. It absolutely needs to be light As I physically cannot be lifting a 50lb saddle constantly off and on repeatedly due to medical reasons. I thought maybe a synthetic but again I don't know which brands would be good. Or even what kind of western saddles do you use to train horses in if you do train?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, just figured I'd ask and maybe get some more ideas.
