The last information I can think of about the Wintec saddle's problem is that the back of the saddle doesn't sit flat on her back until I sit in it.
Lots of wither clearance isn't necessarily a problem in and of itself, but it can be indicative of the saddle being too narrow. You said the Wintec was an extra wide, which I would expect to be too wide for an Arab, but it does look like it's sitting too high on the panels, which would indicate it being too narrow. Does it have the interchangeable gullets? If so, I'd double check the size of the one that's in there.

I have checked it, and it is the extra wide.

That's why I'm thinking it's the tree's shape and not the width, but that's why I'm asking here because I'm not sure.

It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough
