Cool What does YOUR saddle weigh?

I was just wondering how much everyone's saddles weigh. If you have more than one (most people), describe it a little, and then how much it weighs or how much you think it weighs. I'll start:

  • Black English Cutback Saddle - 18" seat = 10 lbs. (Everyday/Ocassional Show saddle)
  • Dark Brown Hand-Tooled Western Saddle - 14" seat = 15 lbs. (It's my colt starting saddle)
  • Black Hand-Tooled Western Saddle - 15" seat = 35 lbs. (Usually only use it when I want the horse to get used to more weight and it's good for giving them endurance. Lol)
  • Black English Cutback Saddle - 17" seat = 10 lbs. (show saddle)

    So, let's hear 'em!

ATM, I have 2 saddles.

An old work saddle who's brand is not recognisable anymore and it weights wayy too much. :)

And I have a new Bates AP saddle which is really light.

That was my sentiment, too!!!! I got it off an old wannabe cowpoke who probably did use it; for almost 20 years now, it's just an interesting ornament on an antique English oak saddle stand~~where it shall remain forever, or until I turn it into something else!!! Lol

Hm, lets see. Out in the tack room, there are about 5 handmade Billy Cooks that are about 30 years old and 1 newer Simco that are probably no less than 40 pounds each. There is also an old Billy Cook show saddle that probably only weighs about 25 or 30. But then again, all those saddles are roping saddles so of course, they're heavy.
