I talked to my friend whom I bought the saddle from, and I explained to her that the saddle did not fit, and if she had any suggestions on maybe someone I could do. She suggested using a theraputic saddle pad and a navajo blanket on top...making the saddle be off the withers
The saddle, I think, would fit perfectly if it was listed maybe an inch or so off his withers. Sonny has faily large withers...I heard that's a good thing...but it makes it hard for any saddle fit haha.
I'm going to give the theraputic pad a go...I mean it's not particually going to hurt if I try it once to see.
Also here are the pictures I took to see if the saddle did fit. What is your input? I mean it appears to fit...at least I think it does
^^The end of the skirt right there is curved...it somehow got bent and stayed that way
In that last two pictures I can see where the saddle is tight against his withers on top and flares at the bottom. it should be tight at the bottom and loose on top. As I mentioned the gullet is too narrow and the saddle has too much flare in the front of him creating a pinch.
