The bars on your saddle have noting to do with the length; and if you are getting dry spots by the shoulder, it has to do with the spread of the bars not the length.
A shorter backed horse can usually benefit from a round shirt saddle due to the typically shorter overall length, although you can sometimes find shorter square skirt saddles too. One of the things I like about Kevin is that you can talk directly with him and he can walk you through some of the steps in fitting your saddle. He also has a set of gauges he can send you but there is a sticky at the start of this forum that I made which can help you make a form to send him.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
