Question M. Toulouse seat comfort??

So I currently ride in this saddle (which is for sale if anyone's interested!) 17" Pessoa Gen X Elita w/XCH gullet system for sale in Ohio, United States of America :: HorseClicks

I love my Pessoa - and hate to sell since it's less than a year old!!! But the fact is, my long-backed stocky built mare who suffers from chronic back soreness just needs a saddle that can be re-flocked to fit her sensitive back, and this one has foam panels.

So I went on the hunt for another saddle, and I love the Toulouses, in fact I have their Aachen dressage saddle (also for sale since I am switching disciplines and don't need it any longer 16.5" M. Toulouse Aachen dressage saddle for sale in Ohio, United States of America :: HorseClicks)

My Toulouse dressage saddle is soooooooo comfy it's like sitting on a couch!! So I ordered in this lovely Toulouse Denisse Pro saddle Marcel Toulouse Denisse Pro Saddle | Dover Saddlery...GORGEOUS and looks like it would be a great fit for my pony's back (flat, wide panels that aren't as steeply set as the Pessoa, which is what my mare needs with the way her back is shaped - I had a saddle fitter out to confirm)...but just 1 problem: it feels like my seat bones are being ground on a rock when I sit in it! Has anyone else had an issue with this particular Toulouse? My trainer sat in it as well and mentioned the same thing...that where your seat bones come in contact with the saddle, it's super hard and they just rub...it's almost like the seat isn't wide enough there so your seat bones are resting right on the hardest part where the seam is, it's strange.

I'd really love to find a saddle just like this one, but with a comfier seat (and no, I don't want to just "settle" and buy a seat cushion to put on it, if I can just find a better saddle). Anyone have any suggestions for other similar saddles?

I'm not sure about that one in particular, but I have a Toulouse - I think it's a Celine - and it is super comfy.

I ended up not going with it and just ordered my same saddle (Pessoa) but with wool panels ;)

I did sit in my friend's Prestige and it was SUPER comfy!! (but out of my price range at the moment, boo!!)

I found the Toulouse seats very soft but I did not like the grippiness; I wasn't able move freely and slide around. But they're nice saddles.
