Post a picture and I'll be more than happy to critique it for you and make suggestions about improving the fit. You really shouldn't be able to see daylight through the back of a western saddle, if that's what you're saying.

I mean is in, along the spine. Thereis room between the spine, and saddle. And I will try to get pictures tomorrow if I ride.

errr... I'm no expert, but that doesn't sound like it fits right to me, I'm picturing it sitting ON the horse instead of AGAINST it... like WAAY to narrow for the horse's back.

But maybe I'm picturing it wrong?

Pommel sitting on spine is much baddo. Padding up with blankets is unlikely to do enough to make that acceptable. I very highly recommend you look for a better fitting saddle. It is too wide in front. Not only is a saddle resting on the wither bone going to creat really bad pain, but it may also not fit in the angle of the tree bars , right behind the shoulders. It's very bad news. Don't use this a day longer than necessary.
