Well from the looks of that one picture, the saddle does not fit the horse. Can you get other pictures with and without the pad? Putting a crupper on a saddle that doesn't fit is only going to make the issues worse in the long run.

Really? I've posted pictures of it and her before and was told that it was a pretty good fit, but that fit her last year doesn't necessarily mean it fits her this year! I actually took some pictures to post on Tuesday (which is when that picture is from) and I've been planning to make a thread to make sure it still fits. I'll try to get that posted tonight and I'll put a link in this thread. She's REALLY hard to fit, so yeah... Thankfully, I ride her bareback basically all summer so if it doesn't fit, I have some time to save up a $$ reserve to buy a new one.

Well just from this pic it looks like it is sitting really, really high on her back. Kind of perching there if you get what I mean.

I do know what you mean! And I agree. It looks that way to me too, but down the gullet/over the withers it looks good, in my severely unprofessional opinion. *so confused*
I posted a critique thread: and I'd appriciate your input! :)

Regardless of the fit, 'cause I'm not helpful with that, You could probably fashion your own "adaptor" by making a "Y" out of wide nylon where the open ends of the "Y" attached to the back cinch rings and the tail of the "Y" is where the crupper would attach. I think you need an attachment like that for britching as well.
