I've got a custom made A fork done for me ~ 13 years ago that weighs 45lb,

My everyday Wade saddle by Corriente weighs the same.

My Passier (that I haven't used in over 10 years) weighs about 18-20lb fitted (I'm guessing).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

My Lovatt & Ricketts cutback saddles with leathers, girth, and Fillis stirrup irons must be 25# or more. I've never weighed it. It's buffalo leather and very thick and heavy. Plus the saddle tree itself is very substantial. Wood and steel saddle trees weigh more than the plactic or composite or carbon fiber trees.

Working western saddles that have rawhide covered trees will be heavy. Ranch and roper styles weigh 40 - 42# average, I'd say, and maybe up to 50#. Cutters are probably high 30s to low 40s. The trees in those saddles are stout and the leather is also usually heavyweight and thick.

The western flex tree saddles weigh more like 26 - 28#. But the trees in them are not as substantial and the leather is much thinner than the top end working cowboy saddles.

14" Alamo barrel racing saddle, chocolate brown with bling trim. It's pretty heavy for it's size, about 24lbs. The leather is thick and the tooling is really deep. I'm a trail guide so it's seen a lot of miles and it's been in all kinds of bad weather. It still looks great.
