asymetrical shoulders

I am getting ready to purchase a new saddle, the one I was using caused dry sweat pattern on the right side which is his larger side. I am afraid the new saddle will be no better on him than the one I am using now.

Is there a fix for this, any excersizes or anything I can do to make him more even or what?? thank you for any advice...

You can buy a Mattes correction pad and put the shims in so it supports the "low" side better, and it will allow your horse to build up more muscle.
They are fairly expensive, but definitely worth it.

is it muscle asymmetry or truly structural?

Romargray, I am not sure, I sent pic's to a saddle fitter and nothing was mentioned about it, so that gives me something to think about. thank you both!
