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.
Thanks so much for replying!!
His withers really are that high. I have included a few pictures. One picture from behind and one on each side of his withers from the front. Hopefully this will give you a better idea!
My western saddle I ride in on him is full QH bars.
