Cattle work with an Aussie saddle??

Hey, so I did some team penning on a friends horse and really enjoyed it...haha this coming from a long time english rider. Anyways I want to switch to western and do some cattle work however saddle fitters and chiropractors have said my horses back is to short for a western saddle because they sit past her last rib and she already has some permanent damage from a bad fitting saddle from her previous owner so the saddle has to be short enough to not rub on those spots.

I don't know much about western or Australian saddles but can you do cattle work with them? I was thinking they would be short enough.

You should try a StocK Saddle they don't cover much more space on a horses back than an All purpose!

They are the saddle of choice in Australia for Cattle work

Thats where they originated :) stock saddles are common here for more than just cattle work but yeah, originally they were used for working cattle, mustering etc so im sure you will have no dramas with one :)
