How to take saddle fitting pictures?

I know having other people look at pictures online isn't as good as having a saddle fitter out to see, but I want to know if something looks really wrong. From what I've been taught, my saddles are a decent fit, but still. Second opinions are nice!

What pictures do I need to take?

So angles of pictures?
Girth/no girth
Saddle pad/no pas
Me on/me off?

Sweat marks?

It depends if you're looking to see if the saddle fits the horse, you or both!

For the horse, I would not use a girth or saddle pad and take a picture straight on the from the front, straight from the back and a profile shot from the side.

To see if the saddle fits you well, you'd want to be on your horse (with your girth and saddle pad) A nice closer-up shot of your thigh/butt from the side and a full body shot from the side would be helpful.

I've also had a friend or trainer who is good with saddle fitting take a look before I make a decision, but I know sometimes that's not an easy option.

Good luck!

I know my saddle fits me nicely, just wanna know if my girl isn't liking it.

I mean i've ridden her in it for 3 years, but I never checked to see if it fits REALLY well

Lexi, here is what pics I took for saddle fitter to look at and to post here (talking about english saddle):

(All pics were taken without saddle pad)
Pics of the side of the horse (both sides)
Pics under the angle so one can see the shoulder and clearance on front (both sides)
