These are often referred to as “high-withered” or “narrow-shouldered.” Commonly, the end result can be a “downhill” saddle, sometimes causing the saddle to collapse on the spine at the withers. Classic Equine created the BioFit Correction Pad to help raise the front of the saddle up to a more level position.
