It's a little difficult to accurately tell with your horse eating grass but judging by the pics you supplied, I think it fits fine. Aside from the gullet seating above his withers, I like to follow the line that the leathers make down the flap to the girth.
That line should be your leg and how it lays will determine where your heels and knees will be placed. Whoever owned the saddle before had it fitting their horse properly. Is the conformation of your horse the same as the seller's?
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
