Western Saddles

My mother owns a 5yr old Dutch Warmblood x Cob, he has huge shoulders and neither of my Circle Y semi and full bars flexi fit him.
Do you think its possible to find a western saddle for a horse with such huge shoulders? So far he is ridden in an English saddle and that is causing major headaches and he is always at the fitters.
We arent lucky enough to have any western saddle fitters within a 200 mile radius so its a bit of a problem getting an expert opinion but even i can see the saddles dont fit him.

I have a CY with wide bars but your way to far to try it...Have you thought of maybe a draft saddle?

Get a saddle fitter.. I know a horse that has a simular problems, but he has thin shoulders and a large rib cage and hips.
