What do you think about bucking rolls? I put them on my sons saddle when he was younger. Was a nice way to make the seat smaller.

I have had a barage of factory saddles, am currently having a wade built by Fred Buckmaster for my cow horse bred mare as NOTHING I have tried fits her, everything runs up her neck including the DE Walker Visalia I just bought. Fred uses all Severe trees and I was really concerned about this tree not working because she is such a hard fit. Got the tree & it fits like a glove. Fred is excellent as he not only builds them, he uses them as well. Highly reccomend him for a custom saddle. He will custom fit a ground seat for you (I have to have a fairly narrow seat due to a broke vertebrae down low).

Incidentally, the DE Walker I just bought I absolutely LOVE the seat in!!!

I think his base price is $2800 and wait is roughly 6 months, maybe a bit more depending on his backlog. 3 of those months is wait on the tree as he has each tree built to order.
