Yes, it does sit down too far in front, and thus tips forward slightly .
Perhaps that is why that pad also sits a bit funny.
A Solid looking boy, with lots of bone!
Are his front toes long, or just the picture? Sorry, always looking at feet, having one horse that is IR and another one with a club foot

No, they are long. We're working on bringing them back. Due partly to his fear of farriers and partly to my circumstances at times, he hasn't had the most consistent of farrier work. That second picture was before his trim this last time. The first picture is right after.

It looks like the pad is backwards & the part in back sticking up should be the part contoured for the withers. I could be wrong though.

Nope, it's on correct. There's a cutout for the withers, so it's almost impossible to get it backwards.

Too late to edit...

Part of the problem is that his back is pretty flat and the pad is more contoured than his back is.

The pad size is going to be determined by the skirt size generally. I don't need a pad bigger than a 32 x 32 for my everyday saddle but if I put my cutter/cowhorse saddle on a 32 pad it looks funny because there is hardly any drop in the skirts.

hi Drafty
I just returned to this thread, and the picture of your horse and saddle, without the pad, does look better then with the pad, but it seems to me, that the twist or rock of the bars might not be quite right, and hense the way it looks,esp with the pad.
Could be wrong, but just thought I would throw that thought out to you.
I just re- found the one site, I copied info from (cleaning my office today ) and it gives some very good details, far as western saddles
