He also is really great about saddle fit, more so with Western than English tack. I had him look at Mystic's new saddle. He thinks the fit is overall really good but did notice a very small amount of bridging. I couldn't really feel it, but to be honest I spent more time checking the fit around her shoulders because that's where the previous one seemed to want to pinch all of a sudden. He recommended using a pad that I can add a shim to. He also said she was a saddle fitting nightmare hahah - which I have heard before from the Saddle Geek.
I'm currently using my friend's Diamond Wool pad which is a nice thickness and quality, so I'm going to ask for another one (that's shimmable) for my bday.

But I'm having a heck of a time choosing the color!
I've narrowed it down to four and would love some input. I am mostly turn between the navy (which looks like a beautiful indigo on the website but might be a more boring navy in person) and the purple. They don't have all of the colors shown as a pad (mostly just squares of color), so it's harder to picture them. Mystic's "color" is supposed to be purple for her gear but I haven't really stuck to that.
Here is a pic of the saddle if that helps with color choice :)
Here are my top four color choices:
4) Royal Blue
Which do you think would look best on her? Or is there another wildcard that I should go for from the other colors listed on the site?
Opinions appreciated :)
