What is everyone's go to saddle for downhill, flat backed horses?  I feel like this horse is always kinda sore in her back and loin area.  Some say treed saddles will make all downhill horses sore, but a lot of colts are downhill and plenty of trainers ride in treed saddles.  Are flex saddles better?

I am in the same boat as you. I haven't tried a whole bunch of saddles yet but these are my findings so far and what has been recommended to try. I currently ride in a Bob Marshall.

Any wide Circle Y sits down on the withers. I haven't tried a regular tree yet so see if that works.

Melita Brown by Crates seems to fit pretty good, although I don't love how it rides.

Been suggested to try but haven't yet:
 Lynn Mckenzie Special. If that doesn't work then a wide Special.
Flex tree saddles by Circle Y and Reinsman (yes I know its the same company).

Oh I forgot about that one.

I had an Ammerman that initially I thought fit pretty well but she didn't want to pick up her left lead. Obviously it was pinching her.

My Frontier Futurity sat and rode great on Xena. At age 14 she is still downhill, tho it was more pronounced when she was younger.
