    Nope, it looks terrible, therefore he should come to my house and be ridden.
    I agree with the others, don't like it perfect but it could work.

    I think she meant too wide. Although I don't think it is. I like Centaur more on him, BTW (from pics).

    Mmmm I don't know if it's to wide, it sits pretty level, this is the Wintec Wide



    Which is to wide for him, and sits down at the front.

    I was laughing because every saddle looks so tiny on him!

    I'm wondering if the Centaur has enough wither clearance. How many fingers can you fit under the pommel?

    How big is that monster, anyway? He makes those saddles look like racing saddles

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Okay I'm done laughing, but seriously... it's like a little dolly saddle on his back. My boy probably looks similar with a jumping saddle :P

    It looks good, I'd just watch it as he grows in a topline, especially in the back, as it may pinch at the front. But right now it looks good!

    I can get 4 fingers in under the pommel, but will have to check when I get on, a large weight on the saddle does affect clearances...I remember now, I was riding Mr G in the thorowgood because I liked it, but then I saw how far down it settled when I was riding in it, it was back to my stubben straight away

    The fit looks decent to me. We did not have any shots from the rear showing the gullet and the spine clearance side to side. From the front shoulder angle it is impossible to tell if the gullet is too narrow and the tree itself pushing onto the edges of the vertebrae "wings".

    A longer girth will help it have less of a slope. I think the saddle needs to go back about a half to a quarter inch.

    The angle of the seat is good; not too high or low in front.

    HOw big is this horse?
