You said that about the last saddle as well. You shift between being accepting of the advice offered to trying to justify why what you have is just fine. I am not near as experienced as most that have commented on your saddle fit but I can CLEARLY see the saddle does not fit properly. I can tell you, as a larger girl myself, proper saddle fit is a MUST for proper weight distribution. Your boy may be great in your eyes with this current saddle/fit but you also said the same thing with the last one. With the saddle that low in the front, you are going to give him saddle sores. Yes, the saddle may have a low pommel, but the back should NOT pop up as it is if it were fit properly.
I'm not trying to be snarky, just please stop trying to justify how much your horse loves a clearly ill fitting saddle. You're hurting nobody but him in the long run.
