I am glad that the videos have helped you out! I know the frustrations of finding a good saddle fitter - always go with what the surrounding public/clientel say about the saddlers.
I made that mistake once, and wont do it again. I went with a saddler in my area and I was told "wide with a wither relief pad" and went with what she said, until I discovered from other saddlers and saddling seminars that, that is only a short term solution, because that causes damage in the long run, destroying the topline and the muscles because they cannot obtain the needed oxygen to grow and develop.
So, I then started to ask other equestrians in the community about the saddler I used, and only recieved negative feedback - so, lesson learnt.
