Again, some photos from the front without the pad would be helpful, and always with the head in a neutral position, if it's down it changes the whole fit. In both pictures his head is too far down. Stand him still and square.
This one looks like it fits a bit better, but I don't know if I really like it, the fit still looks a bit awkward but its hard to tell. What did it feel like? Did it have movement back and forth/side to side? Also it looks as if your saddle pad is back to front.
I once bought a High Horse trail saddle, it was half synthetic, half leather, and was light. It seems to fit a lot of horses pretty well and is fairly cheap. I personally don't like riding in it, but I'm a bit neurotic about saddles, so that's a brand you might want to look into.
