Re: [RC] WEIGHT DIVISIONS - rides2far

After reading many peoples comments.  I feel just weigh the rider and 
the rider's clothing.  Don't worry about saddles since so many 
people have different tastes in Saddles.

Other than people suddenly saying that's what they'd like to do...what's
the rational? Either weight matters or it doesn't. If the tack adds 40
lbs, the horse is carrying an extra 40 lbs. If anything saddle weight is
more consistant that rider weight since it stays on the horse whether the
rider gets off or not. If a Wintec weighs 7 lbs. and an antique OF weighs
35 that matters as much as one rider weighing 190 and another weighing
118...a weight division worth. Either weight matters or it doesn't.
