western saddle with a curvy tree?

I'm sorta looking for a western saddle for my moms horse. Can't buy at the moment but need to know what to look for. My mom has a fat, wide shouldered appy with a decent wither and a curvy(somewhat swayed) back. Most if his curvy back is due to lack of muscle and his huge gut pulling it down lol. We don't have and saddle fitters near by so I'm on my own with the hunt. Does anyone know any saddles that may fit the bill?
Here are some pics to give you and idea of his shape.

This one fits him well in the front.I believe it measures 7"

But you can see it doesn't fit his back well

So anyone have any saddles that may fit him?

Run the back of your brush along his midline underneath and see if he will lift his back. I believe it's Tuffy that makes a sway back pad.

Have you thought about a treeless saddle?

Many people make a Gaited Saddle which has more flair in the front of the bars and more rock also, I do believe on problem is your current Saddle might be a touch wide, from the pics I would say your Horse is not that hard of a fit.

When you get ready to buy a Saddle, message me and I will help you find one, even if it isn't one of mine :)
