    Look for a "cut away" with a "built up pad."

    You want to get the saddle away from the withers, not pad it there... that would put pressure onto the withers. A "built-up pad" also fills in the (muscle) gap on each side, and keeps pressure off the shoulder.

    I agree with Sharpie -"you want to pad up the area on either side of his withers (built up pad) while adding as little material as possible in the area where there's already too much pressure" (cut-a-way)

    There is one shown on the same page on your chick saddley link...
    All good manufactors make a cut a way- built up pad. This is a very common problem with TB type built horses.

    Yes, that is what I would purchase, if I understand your problem. These pads are also great for those "older kid sway back horses."

    Here is another link, it has a "zoom" so you can see what it will look like.

    FYI
    I always recommend purchasing a saddle with a wide gullet. (7.5-8 inch) With a wide gullet you can change saddle pads as you ride different horses to adjust the fit. A narrow gullet,(6) you are S.O.L. If you ride a "bulldog built horse."

    Being raised on a working ranch, cowboy hired hands just had 1 saddle, but they always have lots of different saddle blankets to make that saddle work. TB withers, use a built up, cut a way, Mutton withers, use a thin blanket.

    If you have a lot of $ to buy different saddles to custom fit each of your horse(s) great.

    But my working saddle is like my favorite pair of boots! I hate to "break-in" a new pair!

    Hope this helps...
