very light weight, but it was difficult to attach the drivers side stirrup leather due to the flap a bit higher on that side. i purchased it because i have a 17 hand TB and it was difficult to saddle and un-saddle a horse that large. with this saddle, the difficulty is gone. i also added Aluminum stirrups to keep the weight down, instead of the stirrups which came with the saddle. i will use those with another saddle that i use with a different horse.
