Saddle fit critique- PICS

Ok so I need to see what others think of this saddle me from little that I know and been reading about it seems to be a good fit for her but I need a more experianced eye to judge that!

Without the pad or being cinched

With the pad and slightly cinched

This is a awkward angle

After the ride (i didn't see any dry spots other than along her spine)

Back view

Hope these turned out good enough!

Small bump...anyone?

Although the sweat marks look fine, the way the saddle sits (without the pad, no less) makes it look too small for your horse. The addition of a pad will only make it worse. I would also like to see it sit a little more forward - .

Yeah after looking at the pics again it seemed to need to be moved up about an inch I would say! I have only rode in this saddle a total of 5 times probably one of them beign last night and she worked really well in it compared to the other saddle I had been using. I did the hand test and it seemed to be even but like I said i'm no expert and I'm just reading out of a book I bought LOL

If you look at the back of the saddle in particular, you can see that it is raised up. That indicates to me that the bars of the saddle are too narrow AND that is without the pad.

Ok thanks..geesh I have no idea what size saddle then because this has a 7" gullet LOL

They make wide saddles. Like a Wide semi-QH or wide Full QH. Because that's what I had to get for my mare.

Take some more pics with the pad. Having a saddle pad makes a huge difference. Plus it'll help us determine sizing. :)
