oh! That makes sense now! Thank you!

It does have a straighter tree. But I think it sits right on Demi. She has a pretty filled out back and there aren't any pockets.

i think it looks like it fits fine,
ive always been told you need to be able to press the pommel and the other end ( sorry forget the names lol) should not rise, same with pressing the back end and the pommel should not rise. you should be able to fit several fingers between the withers and the saddle, and you should be able to glide your hand under the saddle where your horses shoulders are without the saddle getting in the way. if it does, its too narrow.

Then I woud say the tree is just right for her :)

Take a white pad, and have a good ride in that saddle while using the white pad. Then flip the pad upside down and take pictures of the sweat marks and let me have a look-see :)
