I don't ride western or know how to fit a saddle but it looks like it fits like a glove.

I think it does too...i have another post with the same saddle on my gelding. Can anyone tell what horse it fits better? Need to get another saddle for one of the horses and may get the same one but want to make sure before purchasing. This is a Crates 2171 7" wide tree. I like the flare on the mare, the gelding in the post from a couple days ago doesn't have quite the same flair. Thanks..

GB, it fits this Horse much better, Saddle looks level, better fit in front where bars in tree are...

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

It appears like it might be up on the shoulderblades. Rock it side to side a little until it seems to lock.You pad is a little too thick. It can change a nice fit to one that's tight behind the shoulders and floats at the back. Those are easy fixes. Enjoy your new saddle.
