I confess I use it when mounting...and dismounting...and riding - sometimes...it's a kind of security blanket right now.

You know what? I used it a lot when I first began riding and yes of course I'm still a beginner at riding. It was my security blanket as well. I mounted with it up untill a few days ago.I just didn't understand how people could not mount with out it but now I got the hang of it and I think my horse apperciates it
I don't think I would ever go for a treeless saddle only because I like the fact the the tree gives support and relieves pressure and the weight is distributed through out if fitted properly....eh, I think I am saying that right.
I think I will do a wintec or an abetta saddle. I don't like how heavy traditional saddles are. They are better quality and will probably last a lifetime compared to synthetic.

IF ANYONE knows ofa lightweight tradtional saddle brand let me know. I will think about purchasing one if it's not heavy.

Actually I do remember seeing some leather saddles pretty good brands (I DO believe it was Reinsman and something else, may be Tucker) around 25 lbs. My Alamo is 25-27 lbs. Not as light as Abetta, of course, but way more light then "traditional" saddle. Unfortunately such saddles are not very cheap unless you go for the used one. BTW, I personally don't like Wintec at all - that brand seems to be prone to accidents (2 on my memory, one with me personally ).

I believe Big Horn also makes synthetic saddles. Or some other brand iride mentioned while back in a different thread.

My first saddle was an Abetta! It was very comfortable, affordable, and lightweight.

Haha! "the dagger in the front." Love this! Too funny.
