Exclamation Does this Saddle Fit?

Please no rude comments. I just need honest answers
I got this saddle when I got my horse and im really starting to think if it really fits her or not? The Gullet is 7" is FQH Bars 7.25"
When I tighten the cinch the back of my saddle lifts up. But when I sit in it, itll go down. The pad that I have is to big for her and im planning on gettin one that fits her better. As of pics, these are ones that I found on my laptop and I can't take any new ones for a few months since the horses are out in the pasture. I want to know what you guys think of how it fits? And if not, what do you think,by lookin at the pics, would suit her better. And what bars do you think would be better? And people say she's high withered. Idk if she is or not. I really want the best for my horse. And im planning on getting a new saddle anyway for rodeo, and I don't want something that fits incorrectly. She also gets a bit nippy and irratated when I tighten the cinch

The first pics, are when she was skinnier. BTW she's a BLM Mustang, so she's short and stocky.
Sorry if you can't really tell how the saddle fits in these pics. Oh and when ever I tighten her cinch and she's all ready, the cinch is always right in her front legs, if that makes sense ha idk how to explain it.. but is that just a mustang thing?

Well, the sweat pattern is even and good. When you sit in it , it looks ok, and the angle of the bar looks to be pararllel to the shoulder. So, iin my opinion, it's not bad. But, overall , the saddle has the look of a rather poor quality saddle. That may not be the reality, just the appearance. If your horse is not sore, and the sweat patterns are as good as that, then I would be satisfied that the fit is good enough.

It looks like it fits decently from what I can see. The sweat marks look even. However, have you looked to make sure nothing is coming loose from the underside of the saddle? (screw, nail, ect) maybe that is what's making her uncomfortable when you cinch her up? Double T saddles are very low quality so that would worry me.

The back on a correctly fitting saddle should not lift up when you tighten the cinch. So because it does, it does not fit her.

It could be the gullet, and it could also mean there is too much rock in the tree for her.
