Lightbulb does this saddle fit (pictures)

My new saddle came in and I was just wondering if it fits the little pony I am riding. I have pictures of the two different types of pads I use.

If you need me to take more pictures, let me know. I will be posting more pictures tomorrow with just the white fleece pad and one with just the purple pad and finally one with just the grey/blue pad

Looking at this photo, it's a close fit for width/angle. You canNOT use that
Much padding under it as-is. It will be too tight on your horse if you use
Double pads like you are the other photos.



Looking at this photo, it seems to be too narrow, with the pommel too high
over the front. However, you have the saddle about 2" too far forward.
The front d-ring should be 2-3" BEHIND the back EDGE of the horse's
Shoulder blade.



Also, looking at the above photo, I'd have to say that the back panels may
Not be a good match for the shape of his back. It looks like that are too
Flat on the bottom, and there will be too much pressure on the inside edge
Of the panels.

I want to see the same side and front shots as above, but with the saddle
Moved 2" back, with the girth lightly done up. I also want to see a picture
Taken from behind, so we can see how the back panels sit against his
Back. Stand on a stool if you need to. Then take those same three shots
With just the white fleece pad or just the navajo or square pad.

At this point though, my judgment is too narrow and too flat of panels.

What kind of saddle is that? I'm not an expert with saddle fitting, but it looks a little weird on him in my opinion. But like I said, I don't know anything about saddle fitting.. only adding pads where it's needed, haha.

Well, the back in those photos actually looks good. I think you can stick with that saddle and model, just go up a tree size. If it's a medium tree, see if they have a medium-wide or wide you can try.

Better placement in these photos. I'm going to say that it's a smidge too narrow. Did you buy this saddle or is it on trial? If you can return or exchange it, see if you can get the next tree width wider. Or, see if you can get one of the changable gullet collegiates, IF it has the same kind of back panels.

I'd go with the next size wider and see how that works.
