More Saddle Fitting- Several Pictures

Okay, here are pictures of yet again another saddle. This one, however, is made for a mule which I have not tried yet on her so I figured I would give it a shot. There are pictures without the pad, with the pad, and of the sweat marks. This is the first saddle I have ever tried on her that does not leave dry spots behind her withers.

I can fit 2 fingers under the pommel with room to spare but not quite three fingers. This is not the highest quality saddle. Its a Dakota 801 if you want to look it up. The skirt is 3" shorter than my last saddle which seems to make a good bit of difference.

To me it looks to fit her good. I'm no pro just had issues with fitting my guy. Have you ridden her in it or lunged her with it on?

I lunged her in it today and everything looked good. I only rode for about five minutes to see how it set. She has a locking stifle so I am trying not to ride get too much till I get her I'm better shape. She seemed to move good in it from what little I rode

Well if it isn't I rest assured She will let me know soon enough. She is hateful when something doesn't fit right.

Will bucking rolls fit in this saddle good? I had to get a 16" and it is too roomy for my liking and I am hoping maybe bucking rolls will make it snugger

That is a wade style or a-fork style tree, bucking rolls should fit fine

Good that's what I was hoping! I really need a 15" but all the measurements I'm this saddle seemed perfect for my mare so I thought I would take a gamble on it. Ikea going to attempt to turn the stirrups the way they are in the sticky from iridehorses but I think my legs may be too short
