Depending on what vet did, they may have missed many things.
Twig in soft palate, thorn in flesh under girth, internal problems or what have you.
The way horse is doing I would be thinking pain.
X-rays and MRI's are needed here. Something is majorly wrong here.
And too, while you say saddle is fitted just to him? Doesn't mean there is not something wrong with the saddle. Nails, slivers of wood, tacks, all sorts of things can be wrong inside one. Even a new one. Turn it upside down and press all over it to see if you can find something wrong with the palms of your hands. Have every bit of weight on your hands as you do so, so that it will show up. Check pad too, as someone might have thought they were being funny and put burr in it.
Horses make me a better person.
