[RC] Saddle Suggestions - Nat Nelson

I recently purchased my first Arab and I am having
problems finding the right saddle for her. I've ridden
quarter horses and paints all of my riding life . . .
until now :)

The first saddle I rode her in was a Wintec Aussie.
Besides the fact that she whirled around so fast that
she blew off my left stirrup leather and I hit the
ground. . . I've experienced that the stirrup bars are
too far foward and I don't feel balanced with the
Arab's way of going. I was ok with it when riding my
quarter horses and bearly noticed the too far foward
stirrup bars.

The next saddle I rode her in was my Billy Cook Wade
Roper (she wasn't going to blow any leather off of
that one ;) - I felt balanced and secure, but that is
way too heavy to expect her to tote on a long ride.

The third saddle I tried is an Abetta Endurance. I'm
more balanced than the Aussie, but not as balanced as
I am in the Billy Cook.

I need to find a light wieght saddle that is balanced!
Any suggestions? I've been looking at the Synergist -
any opnions?
