From what it seems like, there isnt really any huge concerns. My trainer has always told me that if a horse doesnt like the saddle, or saddle pad- it doesnt fit right, pinching, ect. the horse WILL let you know. but by the sounds of it, the little swirlon either side of the horses sholders, could just be the way the saddle pad is sitting, or you put it on, and moved it against the floe of hair. If that makes any sence. And im sure that the saddle will become more comfortible the more you ride in it and break it in.
hope this helped at all.... =( sorry if it didnt.
