    A bridging saddle won't fit no matter how much he fills out :) If it was a tad bit too wide - only - it would fit better when he filled out.

    Not only that, but a bridging or in other way not properly fitting saddle will keep the horse from filling out as well since it puts too much point-preassure for the horse to be able to arch the back and use the back muscles properly.
    If it presses down in the front, the horse can/usually get ''holes'' there where muscles should be. Sadly, that's so common that many people think that's a normal and healthy thing that comes when the horse mature, and are just happy that it makes the saddle sit steadier... :3 *off topic info*

    My friend's horse is covered from nose to tail in pink when she's put up for the night at shows. Pink sleazy, pink wraps, pink tail bag, pink blanket, and lastly, the pink bow in the forelock. Poor horse, but this horse thinks she's a princess, so it's not so bad.

    The second picture looks like he wants to put a bag over his head.

    You guys think its bridging then? I have always just checked to make sure its not pinching, doesn't sit on the withers, and doesnt rock back and forth, which this saddle doesn't do. I want to make sure his back is happy so he can preform at his best.

    I can't see that on a picture...
    You can feel with your hand under the panels when the saddle is on the horse, no pad or anything in between. Let your hand follow the panels/horseback front to back, the preassure by the saddles weight and so should be completely level; I.e. It shouldn't be easier to slide your hand under it in the middle or anything. Also make sure it fits as closely high up (towards the seat) as at the lowest point (towards the ground) on the panel, the whole length of it.

    So run my hand horizontally along the underside of the saddle?
