Need saddle fitting help *pic heavy*

I have a new horse (yah me!) and I'm just getting back into the sport after having my children and taking over 10 years off. Wow, it's a shock to the system.

Here's my 5 year old Morgan mare:

I haven't fitted a saddle to a horse is years, and I don't have anyone to come and look. Here's three of my old saddles that's I've put on her to get an idea of what I need to buy for her at the tack shop. I have no intention of using any of them, just want to bring a saddle with me when I go

#1 old jumping saddle:

#2 my old heavy all purpose (it's a brute!)

#3 ??? AP

Need some help with what I'm seeing, thanks in advance!

First and foremost, welcome back! I'm returning to the game as well. :0) Second, what a BEAUTIFUL mare!

Fit is a funny thing. It's difficult to tell what fits best in photo form, but based on these pictures, I would say option one or three. Two looks like it would put a lot of pressure where it touches behind the wither. That said, you could find a saddle that appears to fit, and realize after a workout that it's pinching her (dry spots under the saddle). I would take her to the shop, or have someone come out to fit her and then give it a go. Good luck!

By the look of it number 3 looks the best. However I agree with GiftWrapped try to get some one to fit your horse. Beautiful horse though! Good luck!
