Question Does this saddle look too narrow?

Does the gullet on this saddle look narrow?

(If it doesn't fit my horse I can return it)
But I was just wondering if anyone can tell by looking at it.
(I've never bought an English saddle before.)

My horse has a pretty narrow back compared to most quarter horses..
Does this saddle looking too narrow for the average quarter horse?
Or do you think it would be too narrow in general, for a quarter horse?

Is it just the way it's sitting? Or is it actually that narrow? Lol

(I'm buying it for $400, it's a close contact jumping saddle. Do you think it's worth $400?)
Here's the side view:

Any advice/info would be MUCH appreciated.

If you can get a measurement of the saddle from eyelet to eyelet, right where the gullet would first touch the horse, you can compare it to the same measurement on your horse. That's the best way to tell without actually trying it on your horse.
