Haflinger western saddle-help

I need to converse with someone who has such a saddle. Someone who would be kind enough to take some measurements and email them to me.
I've been on a lengthy search for a saddle to fit my chunky TWH and it's leaning toward a Haffie saddle. He's low withered with a broad flat short back. Sound like a Haffie. Since I am in Canada and most Haffie saddles for sale are in the US, it's too expensive to mail it both ways if it doesn't fit. It's about a hundred bucks each way. Then if there's a restocking fee....

I have a fjord with same build and short flat back and the haffie saddle didn't fit right it actually bridged across her back front to back and the only saddle that fit perfectly (western type for trail saddle) is an australian stock saddle because it's short from front to back and has short, rounded skirt and has adjustable tree. Look at link for australian stock saddle company in malibu california. You can get with a horn and with or without knee pads so you can basically get it like a western saddle.
Aussie Leather Saddles

You can see why this shape saddle fits so much better than regular western saddles.
All of the western saddles I tried (I tried 13) all either bridged across her back or pressed on her shoulder blades or both.

I picked up a Tennessean and danged it the weather will allow me to see how it fits. Yesterday, sunny sky, breezy, perfect. No sooner got the pad on and it started to sprinkle. Barely got everything under cover and it poured then settled down and rained until after dark. Same thing the day before. The Tenn. Is a western style endurance. Just no horn. I can resell a used saddle, harder if I bo't new.
