I was hoping some of the other folks who have a better eye for saddles for certain toplines would chime in.
Since you haven't gotten any answers, I'll do my best.
- His withers don't seem THAT high. Are his withers really that high, or is he just a bit hollow behind the shoulder-blades?
- Do you know how wide he is? Could you provide a picture taken from directly behind and one from the front showing his withers, shoulder-angle and down his back? What size bars does he use in a well-fitting Western saddle?
-Answers to those 2 questions would help us get started a little better.
- Some English saddles have cutback pommels to more or lesser degrees, that might be an option. If he's really hollow behind the shoulders, shims might be an idea until he fills out a bit.
