It sounds like the saddle is too wide if adding front shims helped. Getting a saddle fitter out would be ideal but if that proves to be an impossible task you can learn yourself and find an appropriate saddle and/or make appropriate shims for the saddle you have.

I highly recommend “The Horse’s Pain Free Back and Saddle Fit Book” – http://www.amazon.com/Horses-Pain-Free-Back-Saddle-Fit-Book/dp/1570762929/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1390345687&sr=1-2&keywords=pain+free+back+and+saddle+fit+book it is very in depth and covers every issue you may encounter.
