I am just super curious...how may hands is the little guy? I am just wondering b/c of the two little chubby darlings in your avatar. Someone suggested a saddle pad ^^^, that is not sound advice. If forced to choose, I would take bareback over a pad. But, best to just start them wearing a saddle, w the goal of eventually getting on.
Surely you can borrow a saddle until you can find the perfect fit for your horse and wallet? Many people are saddle poor (I know, I am one of them) and may have one that fits they will lend to you.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
