Does this saddle fit? image heavy...

This is the saddle that I got with Lacy from her owner. She's lost about 100 or more pounds since July and I'm wondering if it looks like it still fits her ok to you guys.
Also, does anyone know what kind of saddle it is? The brand?

It looks like it fits good.. but I think you need a back raiser because it is sittin down at the bak... have you checked the dry patches afta you ride?? That's always a good indication

To me it looks a bit narrow in the gullet, and this would be causing it to sit down at the back. It would helo if you could also get some pictures looking from the front, straight down the gullet.

I'll get some more pictures on Saturday when I go riding again. :)

Since it's been really muddy I haven't been able to ride her hard enough to get her to sweat on her back so no sweat marks. =/

It looks too narrow on his spine. It doesn't sit well.

Ok, will check back when you have more photo's, :]

Just a note, I wouldn't use a back raiser, as it is already too narrow on her wither, and a back raiser would make more weight bear down on her wither pockets where it is already under a lot of pressure.

P.S. Lacy is cuuuute! (That's her in your avatar, right? Lol)

Is it just me or does it look like one side of the saddle has more padding than the other when you look at it from the back. It just looks uneven

Wild_spot- Yeah, that's her. =D Thanks! I agree. Heehee

Lolayla- It might be, but it might also be the way she's standing. She doesn't stand square basically ever because she's usually resting a leg... But I see what you mean... I'll measure it or something tomorrow, if I get to go out there since it's s'pose to "blizzard."

Ok, here's the picture of what it looks like from the front.

Thanks! Should it have been from farther back? Lol
