Ok, so here's my crosby saddle on Montana. To me, it looks like it fits him well. I did move it back like a hair and that seemed to have made the sloping-ness go away. (Just my luck right! LOL)
I can fit 3 fingers between his withers and the pommel. I check when I had it girthed up, I just didn't take a picture of it, but I can get a picture if you want.
I was told that it's too wide on him (though it is narrower than my Ovation saddle)
I did ride him in this saddle a few days ago. He was much more responsive and much for eager to do what I asked undersaddle. He had no problem trotting undersaddle either (In my old saddle he would refuse at first until I got after him and then he'd break into a trot.)
Ok, enough of be talking, here are the pictures.

Sorry his mane is in the way
He didn't really like me standing behind him and the flash going off
