Saddle fit critique (pics very heavy)

First of all, my apologies for horses being so dirty.

Luvs, I tried to take pics from behind, but they didn't square anymore (as long as they couldn't see me). So the butt went one direction, shoulder - another, saddle - all crooked. I did my best though. Also I can't ride at least today/tomorrow. We have heat advisory in effect and it's indeed horrible outside - horses are sweaty without any workout (both got bath after I was done with pics, BTW).

Feel free to give the opinions, advices and recommendations! Everything will be very much appreciated.

I'm obviously very new to all of this, but the A/P saddle looks a bit narrow for your QH. I could be wrong though!

From looking at these pictures, I realized I threaded my stirrup leathers incorrectly. The buckle for the leathers goes on top? I'll have to fix that tonight...

Yep, on top. Because often you have to adjust the length while still in saddle for jumping.

I'm not sure about being too narrow. Wonder what other people will say. That particular saddle is very deep, so the front is pretty high in general (even for A/P IMO).

The AP looks to be a decent/okay fit on both horses. The CC looks too narrow/steep for both of them. The pommel is too high and the front angles aren't right. You need a wider version of that saddle, or one with shorter tree points.

I agree. I'd almost like to see a wider gullet on the AP - though the tree width and angle seem about right.
