I agree that it doesn't fit, but it doesn't seem to wide to me either. The front actually looks like a good fit, but you do have it about 1-2" too far forward in the pictures without a blanket. You also need to cinch it up to get a better idea of fit.
The front edge of the front concho should be about 1" behind the back edge of the horse's shoulder blade.
When you run your hand under the saddle, from front to back, you should feel even pressure with no air pockets or tight spots. The underside of the saddle should follow the angle of your horses back front to back and side to side.
I think you might want to look at a saddle with a flatter bar angle. Like a Qh or Full QH bar that isn't supper wide at the gullet, 6 3/4" or less. An Arab tree might work well too.
