For my Clydesdale and my friends Percheron I use the same saddle. It's an extra wide tree and I can measure it when I get to the barn later if you'd like.
Sissy my friends Percheron has an extremely wide back and this saddle doesn't slip or slide around at all and it doesn't pinch her either. It's an all purpose English saddle though. It fits just the same on Caleigh my Clyde and she doesn't have as wide a back but still she's built like a Clyde.
Before I got that saddle which I absolutely love I tried a couple draft saddles and they slid around under me. The ones that fit pretty well were the draft Aussie saddles. The ones with horns didn't but the no horned Aussies fit but they were way beyond my budget.
Drafttack.com has some good deals at times and I think you can custom order too? I found the Aussie saddles on there but I got my English saddle from someone on equinehits.com
