saddle fit critique

My mare is difficult to fit and I have been searching for saddles. She has a big shoulder but dips behind the wither and her back swoops up, almost mildly sway backed looking. I always joke I need to ride on a banana on her hahaha. So I tried a pessoa and an Ideal dressage saddle. Heres the pics. And pics on my gelding for opinions too although he seems to go in just about anything. Hes only 3yo so not really being under saddle yet because hes still growing so not a huge deal on him but opinions are great if youd like to add them. And any suggestions on saddles to try?

ok heres the link to the post on another forum (sorry!) but the computer isnt letting me upload photos for some reason.

ok, solved the issue. Heres a link to a photobucket album with the photos :) Theres a Pessoa cc and an Ideal dressage. Thoughts on each please. Mainly worried about the fit on my mare (dark horse) but dont mind critiques on the gelding as well (dun) since he will be ridden in them some until he finishes growing. Sorry some photos are sideways, photobucket wouldnt let me rotate them through the edit screen.
