QH, you have to take pics WITHOUT the saddle pad. From front (to see the shoulder), from side (to see how the saddle sits on back), and from behind (to see the gullet clearance). Preferably on both sides (because some horses are uneven).
I think the saddle might need to sit farther back.. it looks like it's too far forward and the girth would affect the shoulder a lot. It looks like it's on her wither (mutton wither?) it should be behind the wither at least a hand (4 inches)
Notice my horse:
Disregard the type of saddle.. but see his wither (LOL how can you not ) and how the saddle sits right behind it, in the natrual contore of your horse's back? The saddle should be there. See how it doesn't interfere with the shoulder and the girth is a good hand behind his elbow?
Retake the pictures with it in the right place and then you'll see if it really fits well :)
Also, do you know when it was last reflocked? Or if you CAN reflock it? That's a good thing to know because saddles do get flat and do need to be re-stuffed to get the shape/support back.
Oh, and my horse really doesn't have much for withers. She had more prominent ones this fall when I did a few long, demanding rides with her and she slimmed out and got some muscle. Now she's just chubby.
I've no idea what "reflocking" is. I've been self teaching myself English riding for like... 2 months. I don't know of any knowledgeable English people in my area..
Well I'm not an expert at all, but I do know that some saddles are stuffed with wool. Re-flocking is taking that wool out and replacing it with new wool, or adding wool or taking wool away, depending on how stuffed it needs to be to fit the horse's back.
And for the record, I'm not an experienced saddle fitter at all.. I just saw that it seemed the saddle was too forward. I could easily be wrong, too.
