Post Horse conformation and saddle fitting help please!

Heyy I need help with horse conformation and saddle fitting

So I have a hard to fit mare, pretty narrow shoulders, narrow girth and big barrel. She's got descent high withers and and very forward girth groove.
I've been experiencing western saddle slipping forward because apparently it bridges and is too wide.

Has anyone ever had any similliar experiences with same horse shape, and what saddles worked for them so far (western saddles). I do lots of trail riding so I love to ride in a comfortable saddle.

Looking forward to hear your thoughts and advice! :)

Here are 2 pictures of my mare's conformation both sides.

There you go pictures uploaded! Now I see them so I believe everyone will too! In other words, maybe it's hard to see from these pictures but she is shaped like a pear / light bulb.... Are there any saddles that would work on this type of conformation?
