Katie, based on your pictures - especially the last one of him alone - the saddle does not fit your horse - not even close.
Look at how much higher the pommel is vs the cantle then look at the way your leathers fall. The leathers should fall down the middle of your flaps and end up over your girth, not off towards the back. And that's before you get on causing your weight to push the saddle down on his withers.
From your pictures I would say that it is way to tight.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
