Too wide or just right?

I think this saddle fits this horse good front to back, I am just wondering if I should put in the medium wide gullet or if the wide gullet is fitting him correctly. To me it looks a bit low.

Before riding. I can fit 3-4 fingers under the pommel.

After riding.

I can fit two fingers.

Can you fit 4 fingers under there while you're sitting in the saddle? If not, then go to a narrower gullet.

It looks a bit low in front to me as well. I'd try the MW gullet and see how he rides in it. Check the sweat marks when you're done.

I can fit 2 and a half fingers under the gullet when I am sitting in the saddle.
