I would try saddles with a wide tree or Full Quarter Horse bars. Her back is similar to my mare's, and those are the types of trees that usually fit her best. You won't really know until you get one on though, as most manufacturers are different in how they shape and size their trees.

I love that saddle! I hate saddle horns.
I'm not sure if I would go with a wide or full QH. I just sold one that wouldn't fit any of my horses. I had it for a very wide draft/QH mix that I sold.
I think just a regular QH bars would be wide enough. Just looking at a horses photo and guessing a size is impossible though.
Pretty horse by the way

A wide tree is Full QH bars. A medium western tree is QH bars. A Narrow western tree is Semi-QH bars. For most manufacturers that is .

A draft tree is consider an x-wide or xx-wide western tree.

I think that's what I said The one I had was a full QH not a draft. Your right they very quite a bit by manufacturer. I sure with they would set a standard so they would all be the same no matter who made them.

You should really go to a tack store, take a saddle out on trial and then take pictures to show us!
It all varies by manufactuer so don't don't don't buy a saddle that you haven't tried on your horse.
But like someone else said it's impossible to look at a horse and know what saddle will fit them
