    There is a certain way to hold the saddle as you swing it up to the horse's back that will make it easier.

    My western show saddle is about 50 lbs. It is by far the heaviest saddle I have owned. My horse is 17 hands and I am only 5-3 tall. Do the math, I just barely manage to get it on Cliff's back. I will say that it is all worth it when I sit in the saddle. I just love the saddle and would never give it up just to have one that is lighter.
