(Fwd) Placement of Sport Saddle

Hi Jeri,
well, you could be right about where I am placing it.  I have been 
placing it just behind her shoulder blades.  You are supposed to 
place it over the shoulder blades??  This might be an even worse 
problem for her.  She is half Standarbred, with big shoulders and a 
big stride.  Wouldn't placing the saddle on the shoulder blades 
result in tenderness, or limit their way of going?
Thanks for your help, everyone!
.  The sport saddles I've seen fit like a western 
> saddle, with the front of the saddle going over the horse's shoulder blade.  
> Maybe you are trying to position it like an english saddle, and placing it
