Your saddle might be a little too far forward. The girth should be, on a horse, about 4 inches behind the elbow of the front leg, and should come straight down from the saddle rigging. Exception to this rule, a fat bellied Arabian or any big barreled horse, where the belly goes right up to their elbows, then you need to be very careful of saddle sores.
