Well it seems to. A good way to tell would be a picture looking down his back from his neck to see how it fits on his withers without a pad. Then we will be able to tell if the saddle seems to "bridge" anywhere or looks too narrow/wide. It looks like it fits pretty well from those photos.

The saddle could be exertain too much pressure because it appears the horse is downhill from rump to withers. This causes the saddle to try to come forward.

Yes sometimes dry spots mean something but not always - too hard to tell without standing next to the horse personally!

If anything, it just means the gullet might be a little wide and when you sit on the saddle and ride, the front might rise a bit - which would make me think that it might bridge a little in the middle as a result BUT! That might not be the case at all here. The pics look fine, it looks as if it is sitting just right and the pad isn't too thick, so from the pics I'd say it looks great.

Put the saddle on without a pad and see if the front is maybe just a tiny bit too wide - if it still sits there as good as it does without the pad, it is perfect. The abettas come in semi and full QHB so they won't fit every horse perfectly. I think what you've got there is as perfect as it can get with an off the shelf saddle (in other words, not custom built). I wish I had it that easy with my guys!
