Yes, that picture did not come out very good, his mane was in the way. I will try to get a better picture tomorrow. I was told that my other saddle was too wide. This is a 31in tree. It seems to have better wither clearance, but I am still not sure about it. The other thing I am considering when looking at a saddle is that he has been off for quite some time (and me as well), so we are both getting back in shape. I am wondering how much his back will change as he builds up muscle. My last saddle was a Crosby pre dex nation (spelling?) regular tree. It was not a good fit for either one of us but I could not afford a new saddle. However, when my friend offered this one, I thaught it may work and I decided that either way I needed something different. So, I guess if this one does not work, I will be shopping around for a used saddle. I have already put my other saddle on consignment. Thanks so much for your help. I will post more pictures tomorrow afternoon.
