But you did not fix anything by simply raising the saddle. Now your weight is being distributed differently and will still mess up his back. But whatever, not my horse, not my problem.

If your saddle does not fit his back the build up pad will not work and you are still left with the problem of hurting your horse. The bars of a saddle need to lay flat. If they are the wrong angle then the edges of the bars will be digging into his back.

^^^^ Did you read this??????????? That's why it will mess up his back!

Even with the pad it looks too wide to me. I think luvstoride hit it on the nose. Sorry, sometimes the saddle we love just doesnt work for our horse.

I think you should sell your saddle and just get a new one. I don't see how that would be difficult.

She's already bought the nice new (and probably expensive) saddle pad...Kinda a bad situation. It looked better. I'd try asking an experienced adult or horseman/trainer, or bring pictures to a tack shop manager and see what they think.
If it really dosen't fit I'd get a new saddle.

Gorgeous saddle! And it looks like a good fit to me. My old saddle used to sit like that and then I got a pad like this Supreme Classic Vented Saddle Pad: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - and it solved the problem so I do believe if you get the correct pad and have a minor problem it can be fixed.
