Unless your horse has a lot of draught blood I doubt the gullet is too narrow.
Bear in mind that because the panel curves upwards into the gullet, the gap is wider where it sits on the horse's back than it is higher in the channel, towards the underside of the tree.
Plus, right at the cantle the gullet curls up well away from the horse's spine unless the panels are very flat or the horse very fat. :)
