The Diamond Wool Shim pad is pretty handy, but no matter what he will be a tricky one! Yowsers.
@hamerface here you go...a better look.
That’s not going to be an easy one. You can see the atrophy on either side of the withers really clearly. Definitely he’s been ridden in something far too narrow in order to gain wither clearance.
If going custom isn’t an option, I would find a REALLY good fitter to make you a special built up shim pad to fill in the low spots. But you’ll have to work very very closely with her/him over the next bit as I expect that back to change & the shims will need to be changed constantly.
He is so cute! I am with R&B here, he definitely hasn't been ridden well/with a well-fitting saddle because his back doesn't look great. I think that getting a pad with a good shimming system will be a big help if you're going to ride while his back develops.
