Buy a saddle that you have had fitted to him. But this is a good way to end up dead, or paralyzed.
You cannot tighten a saddle down on a horse like this and fix the problem.
Exactly, applying an extra 50lbs of force to tighten the Cinch is not the answer, the Angle of the Bars is incorrect, gullet width is actually minor when fitting a Saddle, the Bar angle is the most important.
If the angle is wrong, then not enough of the bar contacts the Horse and the saddle moves around too much.
