Wide horse, high withers, which saddle?

I have a big Paint gelding that I'm having trouble fitting a saddle on. I have an Aussie, which I love, fits him great. But I'm wanting a barrel saddle too. He's not thin, kinda wide, high withers. I have a gaited Abetta but I think it's too narrow? Im sure there are threads on this subject but the search wasn't working right. I can post pics tomorrow if that'll help anyone. Would FQHB sit too far down on his withers?? Thanks!!!

My TB is in the same boat, he could be the president of the shark fin withers fan club (not exaggerating!) and FQHB fit him nicely. I originally thought he would need SQHB but I tried a saddle that had the full Quarter Horse bars and it fit so nicely I bought it lol. (Plus it fit me and was a barrel saddle like I was wanting)
