    The angle of the bars is not bad, you could try a saddle pad that has the wither cut out.

    Just afraid that with a standard pad the bottom of the pommel when a rider is in the saddle would put pressure on top of the withers, a cut out pad could cure that problem, do you know anyone with that type of pad you could test it out?

    I actually just bought a "Ranch Tough" pad by Diamond Wool and it would be easy to make it into a cut out pad simply by cutting the tab.
