The CAIR are just panels - the panels do not create the shape of the saddle's tree. Two seperate parts of the saddle.
If the tree is not arched, such as the wintec 500 models - the saddle will sit strait on your horses back, while your horses back archs.
Same issue with your TB, but this time it will be worse, due to your guy being very swayed back - with or without a skitto pad.
CAIR are panels, yes I love them and my Wintec has CAIR - BUT that has nothing to do with proper fit on a horses back that is arched.
You need to find a saddle, that has an arched shaped tree. What the panels are stuffed with, comes after.
