    That saddle doesn't fit your horse. Looks the bars might bang the horse's back tips of his shoulder blades. Sometimes when that happens, horses buck or rear as it's painful

    Can you take pictures of it on him without the pad? (if you need to keep it clean, use a towel, blanket, or a sheet) I know that some pads that are thick and not contoured can cause a saddle to "lift" in the back because the saddle pad is bridging and lifting it up.

    This website is from a tree maker in Canada. Read it and it will give you a good and fairly detailed idea about saddle fit.
