She rides fine and comfortable in it, and I feel like I'm in a good position. I will take some picks with my riser pad and you guys can have a looksee at that
If your gullet was just a notch narrower, you most likely wouldn't need the riser pad to begin with. The best way to tell if the fit is correct is to look at the angle of the gullet compared with the angular slope of the shoulder. This is best depicted in your third photo: notice how the line of the outmost hem of the saddle flap has a slope that is not as steep as the slope of her shoulder? Those two slopes ideally should be parallel, but this pic shows that they are not and that the gullet slope is more gradual than her shoulder.
