Make sure the pad is pulled up pretty well in front of the saddle, too.
Without the saddle pad it fits well..not too tight and not too big.The gullet seems to be the perfect fit. I can fit 2-3 fingers inbetween. I had a medium.wide in and it was snug on her. Also When I ride I can tuck my hands under the shoulder area and it doesn't seem to be pinching and I can add lots of pressure and she is fine.
So,do I tuck the saddle pad all the way in the gullet? I will have to try that tomorrow if so.
