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.

^^^^ 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.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

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 - ChickSaddlery.com and it solved the problem so I do believe if you get the correct pad and have a minor problem it can be fixed.
