I think it is a good fit, but I would do as Saddlebag says.

Thank y I you all!!!! Ok, yes it may be a little forward, but that being said I did ride in it yesterday with her and I have now newly learned to rock it back into place. Looks like a great fit..yes. However one thing i notice is how I had to keep adjusting it to keep it centered. Would a thinner pad help with that as well? If you haven;t looked at my below post please do. Would like more opinions on the fit of my gelding.

Any other ideas besides what I posted yesterday for why the saddle keeps needing to be adjusted to the center of my horse. Also she has and is being seen by a vet chiropractor and acupunture and her entire left side needed to be adjusted. I imagine this might have to do with the saddle shifting and not the fit?? thanks again

Saddlebag I have a question..if the saddle looks like it fits well, then why would I want to put a thinner pad on? Might it make the saddle even looser..or not. I do have another wool pad (toklat) that is only 1/2 so will try that today.

Also how long or how many hours does it take or WHAT does it take for a horse to muscle up before actually to see how a saddle will it when the horse in in shape?

...the more I know the more their is to learn...
