    Gullet spacing on my OTTB

    Ok so I have tried a number of saddles on my 5yr old. The saddle that "fits" the best so far has both great contact on the sides and doesnt get in the way of his shoulders etc. My question is I have about 2-3 inches of space in the gullet till he puts his head down then his spine moves up into the gullet, the pad then has no spare room. I have rode him for 3 hours or so and I can massage the area it does not appear to be sore.. Is this the correct fit? I will post pics if needed
