While it's not "light" compared to a good endurance saddle it's certainly not what would be called "heavy". Even the stripped down McClellan weighed 17 lbs.
Less tree will give you less weight, but it also concentrates more pressure on the horse's back.

This is my 16.5" seat stock saddle. No bulkier than an "English" saddle, but more comfortable.
Uh 19 lbs would kill me. My dressage saddle is all of 7lbs. I much prefer being able to carry my saddle with one finger lol. My stock saddle is soooo darned heavy I literally have to drag it and throw it up on my horse, that is if no one is around to do it for me lol. Way to bulky for me even compared to western saddles, so after only a few weeks with me it is now leaving.
