The best thing you can do is have a saddle fitter out and ride in as many saddles as you can to see what fits YOU best. Some people like Hermes, others swear by Collegiate or Keiffer or HDR or M. Toulouse. What fits you best is the saddle that's best for you.

Is there a tack store local to you? Often times, you can trailer your horse to them and they will let you test ride saddles.

Yea... find something that fits, something that you and your pony both can agree on... and then buy it used online or from a consignment tack shop.
My horse goes in a wide tree as well... this saddle I actually bought from a lovely lady here on the forum, but I knew quite a bit about the saddle company before I bought it from her. I love my saddle... and my horse does too!
St Georges Tack

(the jumping saddle is the one I bought)

How is the saddle uncomfortable for you? Try something with the same tree but a different seat. AP saddle, Close Contact, knee blocks, thigh blocks, they can all make a different in how you feel and how you ride.

I'd suggest to look into Thorowgood, Thornhill or Duett. Your horse does look pretty wide and those brands are quite targeted on wider horses. If you don't have saddle fitter in area (BTW, where are you approximately? May be someone on forum from the same area and can give some suggestions) work with the store that allows trial, so you can see the fit. You can always take some pics of the saddle on horse to get some opinions/critique on fit.
