Okay, so I tried the saddle out again today. Here's the rub. The saddle fits well everywhere and balances me very well, but for reasons I cannot figure out, I can barely get 2 fingers under the pommel clearance area. I'm calling it a no go thinking if it settles even a little, it will be sitting on his withers.
That being said, if he fills out even a little at his shoulders, it would make this saddle a perfect fit. I hate the idea of "making a saddle fit" by using pads and such, but with the very few saddles that fit me well, I'm getting rather desperate. That Mattes half pad with shims is coming to mind. Thoughts?
