    I'm thinking the saddle is a bit too wide. There doesn't seem to be much clearance under the pommel, especially when the front facing photo has no rider weight on it. That is probably the reason it is tipping down in front allowing the back to ride up. Hopefully, a thicker pad might help.

    Have you tried the saddle on without the pad?

    Yea,I have.I even had my friend assess the fit of the saddle as she is better at it than I. However I am thinking about getting a built up pad just in the front as I was thinking it might be a tiny bit wide although I measured the gullet and a wither tracing and they matched perfectly. Sooooo,has anyone has any experience with built up pads? I may start a new thread. I think it will help her.
