Have to agree with Cinny. A thicker pad or adding another pad would be a quick fix for the time being but whatever you do, you need to do it quick. It is really easy to get a horse sore on his withers and when you do, it takes forever to heal up. I have a customer horse that I am having to do that with right now. He is tall and lanky and built like a TB and my saddle is too wide for him. However, I have a 3/4 inch felt pad on top of my fleece backed work pad and, while that won't correct an ill-fitting saddle, it does allow me to keep working him without fear of him getting any more sore than necessary.
