SOrry to butt in, but curious to know how the sweat marks should look if the saddle fits well.

Sweat marks should be even on both sides, with no apparent dry spots or uneven rubbing.

Hi - I'm chiming in with the others that it looks fine. Its a wintec and the panels may look a bit tubby to you if you aren't used to looking at them, but otherwise you appear to have a good gullet clearance.

Curiosity, if your horse is in training, why don't you have your trainer ride in the saddle and evaluate the fit for you?

I haven't thought to ask the trainer. It's rare that we are at the barn at the same time, but if I catch her I'll talk to her about it.

You could always leave a note for the trainer or give her a call too. But it looks like a good fit, I keep getting fooled by these Wintecs today. They look so leather like.

Is there any way you could get some pictures of her back without a saddle? Something looks off to me, but before I offer a theory, I'd like to have a better idea of her shape.

Darn, I uploaded some other pics but they didn't show up for some reason...
The only one that showed up is from June, and she's changed a decent bit.

I've always thought something looked a little off but I don't know what.

I have some old pictures of the saddle on her, but I think posting them would be pointless because she has muscled up and developed a lot over that time.
