Saddle Fit, please help.

I just got this new saddle for my horse because my last one was to long for her back, does this saddle look like it fits her good? I know the skirt is short enough for her back. I did stick my hand underneath while riding and it didn't pinch my hand. Thank you for your opinions.

Wither clearance is good, angle of bars looks good


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

I'm riding today so I'll probably do more testing to see if it's tight or not lol my horse will be annoyed with me sticking my hand underneath while riding again

Well I rode and I stuck my hand flat under the gullet while riding and didn't feel and sharp pressure and my hand didn't get crushed and it didn't hurt my hand so hopefully it fits I'll know for sure when I can get her sweaty. She is hard to fit she is a thick round mutton withered Quarter Horse, my last saddle fit her but the skirt was to long for her back and the pad rubbed her hips (it was also heavy for me lol) so I did a partial trade and got this barrel saddle.
