    Like the saddle fits him fine, but like the front get's really close to the withers, like I'm afraid it may be tapping the top of his withers when we are cantering, so I was thinking about getting a CE BIOFIT pad or a built up pad. I think a thinline pad would only make matters worse in my case, however, I have heard good things about them.

    Sounds like your saddle is too wide in front. Do you have full quarter horse bars or semi? Too wide of a tree can be fixed, too narrow can not.

    It's too wide. And I have tried the Smallest gullet HORSE size on him and it has about 2 finger clearance. Mine is a little bigger semi-qh bars, and It still has clearance, just not enough clearance to where I feel comfortable riding in it because I worry.

    I would see a saddle fitter so that you can get the right fit you need for your horse.

    Yeah. I can't get a new saddle though, but once I start working him and he builds his muscle back up, the saddle should fit him fine, I'm just looking for something temporary to help relieve pressure.

    I would still check into a thinline pad, you will fall in love with it! You can go to their website and read up. Good Luck!

    Does anyone have any experience with the CE BIOFIT correction saddle pad, or have any suggestions of round skirt, built up/correction/wither relief, saddle pad? Western of course.

    It's practically the same as a Built up pad?

    Yes. It would be like making your current pad in to a built-up pad. You just use it over your pad, under the front of the saddle. It shouldn't be visible with the saddle over it.
