This is a question we get very often and the answer is, not necessarily a Western saddle, but a saddle that gives enough support and stability and especially room for you and the child.
We have people use Spanish Vaquero saddles that work well, we have a lady that found a oversized endurance saddle that works for her, and we have heard of people that say some Stock saddles work well.

An English saddle unfortunately doesn't work. We also much prefer them to the others and all the training of our horses happens in them but for a child to sit in front of you on an English saddle, there just no room and it really uncomfy to sit there. Many kids on the spectrum with their sensory issues are sensitive to pressure anyway, and on an English saddle it's just not nice to sit on. it also doesn't give you and child the stability that a large western saddle will give you.

Of course always remember to check with somebody that knows how to fit saddles to see which saddle works for your horse. If a large western saddle doesn't work at all, maybe see if for this particular horse the work in the long lines might be an option (then with just one person up) or if maybe that horse comes in as a trick or sensory horse.
