A while ago I posted some pictures to be critiqued and I was told that my saddle was too far forward and that it was on her shoulders too much. How do you think it is now?
Because she is so fat the girth slides forward.
I know in this one it looks like the girth is pinching behind her leg because it is too far up but that is because she is bending down and her left leg has moved back.
In the other pictures I was using a key to raise the back but now that I have moved it back I don't need it as much and it drives me nuts.
I would think western and english saddle fit would be the same. When I place my saddle (western) on the back I set it forward of the withers and push it down and back. When it "sets" or stops I know its in the right place. I've gotten so I know where the sweet spot is but you might try this. Set the saddle without a pad in front of the withers and slide it back and down. you should be able to feel where it wants to stop. It should be behind the shoulder blade and in front of the loin. Hope this helps.
I agree with everything that has been said. It's hard to say for sure from the angle of the photos, tho when I look at the position of the girth, it looks like the saddle might be a little to far forward.
