Ouch. She shouldn't be wearing any saddle at all until the sore spot is completely healed. Treat the rubbed area with something designed for skin like diaper cream and keep the saddle and the pad off until it's healed. Then I think you need to have a look at the saddle fit.
The saddle fits, it was the saddle pad. I got MTG and put it on and it's pretty much fully healed. Just a little more hair to grow back. I was using a nonslip pad but then switched to a wool pad and it kept giving her soars. I bought a new thicker nonslip pad and it hasn't caused her any problems. I stopped using bacon grease and I'm only putting MTG on her and it's working way faster and she likes it so much better. The spots are almost fully healed, just a little more hair to grow back. Never again am I using bacon grease!
