    With the added info, if you are on a budget I would opt for an Aussie until he fills back out. My boy started out in an Aussie, feels like a really deep western saddle. You can get a relatively inexpensive used/new aussie and use it until the shoulders develop. I just recently discovered that once your horses back shape changes with exercise (bound to happen) with an Aussie, you don't have to get rid of it. You can 'Awl' the saddle to fit the shape of the horse. I did it for my boy and he rides better than ever!

    I have to agree. I've had my slim, short-backed Kentucky Mountain for a year and tried all kinds of saddles on her and finally ended up with a Longreach Endurance (aussie saddle with poleys and horn). It puts me in a nice equitation seat and is very comfortable and she is responding really well (OK and the clinic with Larry Whitesell was fabulous at giving me a language to talk to her with). Now I need to find the perfect saddle pad for underneath and I can stop thinking tack for all while!
