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” – it is very in depth and covers every issue you may encounter. - handmade custom wood-burned brushes, stall signs, & portraits, etched glasses, and custom stuffed ponies
