I have this saddle on loan until Monday. If it looks decent enough I will keep it until I can afford another. I measure 6.5 concho to concho it is an Alamo barrel saddle . Any advice is appreciated-I am not good at this but it looks like its narrow? Thank you!!

Now it works but it is hard to tell if it does or not.

With pad but not cinched

Do you have any of the sidea view like straight on, to see how it balances on the horse, I think if might be a little tight on the withers and the pommel may be too high. I'm not an expert though I wish someone else would comment on this for you.

Another from the side

From those photos I can see the saddle is dipping a little forward not to much that I would be concerned about. A little thicker pad in the front coils fix that. The only thing I would worry about then is the saddle pinching the withers and then making the pommel to high. Do u feel off balance when you ride in it? Or do you feet tend to swing back a little causing u to lean forward?
