    Tad Coffins (newer models) are pretty forgiving. Also Bates will fit a lot of horses.
    The old Hadfields Saddles fit well too (Rudd)- Depends on your budget.

    I have a L'Apogee LXI, which has a deeper seat but they have models that are not as deep. I find it very comfy to ride in and my back, which in itself is another story, has never had a problem. I have had mine for several years and love it.

    I have had a bad back, getting worse, for over 20 years now. The saddle that feels the best of any that I have had is my custom County Stabilizer. Try all that you can and test ride to choose what will work best for you.

    Have you considered a Bruno Delgrange? Our Athena and our new saddle the Rivolli are both flat with narrow twist. I sent you an email with my info.

    I wold also suggest looking into an ecogold triple protection pad. I notice a huge difference on my back when I am riding those horses that just jar the heck out of you.
