It is not brand new but it was rarely used. After I rode in it, the back settled down considerably. The panels are huge so that could make it look like that

I thought it looked pretty good, especially considering the padding still needs to settle. But other folks thought maybe it needed a riser, hence my comment that maybe it would fit better when it was broke in.

Yes, the back panels will compress, but NO they will not get lower on the horse. The tree is shaped the way it is and no amount of breaking in will change it.

Yes, if you scoot the saddle forward it will sit more level, but then the tree will be over the shoulders of the horse, which is not correct. Having the saddle too far forward can cause pain and pinching over time, and shorten the horse's strides or reach.

The saddle is sitting too low on the horse in the proper position. You either need a pad that raises the front of the saddle, or you need a correction pad that adds some thickness at the front. Or, you need to hire a saddle fitter to adjust the flocking of the saddle so it fits correctly.

Are you talking a half pad?

No, it's called a front riser pad or a correction pad. Most are in "half pad" in style, but they provide some real purpose for saddle fitting.

Dover Saddlery | Mattes Quilt Correction Half Pad .
ThinLine Saddle Pads - English Pads - Trifecta ThinLine Half Pad - Arete Equestrian - Half Chaps, Skito & Supracor Saddle Pads... - (Powered by CubeCart)

Front riser pads:
, , at Stitching Horse Saddlery
Saddle Pads - Prolite saddle pads - also has pads that have removable shims.

Possibly, but it may create a bridging spot under the saddle, what can cause extra pressure and saddle sores. Correction pads and lift front pads generally avoid this issues.
