Saddle fit - Latte

After some other opinions.

I tried my County Dressage saddle on Latte tonight, as i'm hankering to ride in a dressage saddle again.

It seems to fit pretty darn good, except the back curves up and the last part of the panels doesn't sit on her back.

However it is pretty balanced. I'm planning on riding in it in a week or two to see how it feels, but i'm just not sure if it will be a problem or not.

No biggie if it is, have another saddle that fits.

Looks good :)
Have you lunged in it yet?
Then you can see if it restricts the shoulder or any other movement.
Looks good :)

I sent her around a few times at a trot - Huge humped back t start but she hasn't been saddled in more than a month. It seemed pretty good, a bti of movement that would stop with a person in the saddle.

have you put hand under the flap from the back and felt along the pannels to see if it sits on the back the whole way??

Yep, it sits pretty flat which is what makes me think it might be okay. It does rock, or bridge.
