help with aussie saddle

I'm new to this forum so bear with me as I'm not sure how it works.I just retired my 50 lb gaited saddle for a lighter aussie. My foxtrotter mare is 17+ hands and is warmblood size so I got a wide tree felt lined aussie as I read they fit big horses better . Is this true? I did try a regular padded aussie on her and it didn't fit her. I change the girthing system to western rigging which she likes better and I can get it a lot tighter than with the aussie girth. I added a crupper today and she didn't mind it but wanted to be sure I had it adjusted right as I've never used one. I can fit two fingers under the tail part and the rest has a very small amount of play. Is this correct? Is the felt type of liner on my aussie supportive enough I also use a very thin aussie pad plus a smx air ride fleece barrel pad under that. I'm concerned that when Im in the saddle I can fit two finger under the front compared to four fingers on my old gaitedsaddle. Id appreciate any thoughts!
