My horse has a slight lack of development around the withers and is stiff through the shoulders. Before buying a new saddle is there anything I can do to improve saddle fit?

Try it on and look at his pressure points to see where you can work on with him
Do bodywork with your horse.
Look at all the pressure points he has and see what it make them do reaction wise
Get them stretching down into the bit and get the hind end really working to build topline muscle. If they're stiff and don't work out of it, you may want to have a vet/licensed chiro out.
