The Bar will touch the shoulder blade (the reason for the flair in the Arabian tree, then go back to the 2nd to the last rib, if that is 20.5" or less you have a winner in that part.
We had a border once with a 13-2 Arabian and a saddle like that would have worked fine.
Unless you have a Pony or a Fiord or something smaller/shorter than the mentioned Arabian, you should not have a problem.
