Racing in Bob Marshall Treeless

Hey guys I have been trying out a Bob Marshall (older style) treeless saddle. I love the way it holds me in, but when I ran with it my feet came out of the stirrups. Also, It seems I can't get it tight enough so that when I get it on it doesn't slide to the side. When I sit down it seems to settle right though. Mostly, it stays well but I tried it again loping circles around a barrel and I felt like I couldn't stay centered and the saddle moves to the side.

So, anyone have solutions or suggestions? I thought maybe a different pad would help? I don't want to buy a ton of stuff and then not even keep the saddle though. Any advice would be great! I am running tomorrow and thinking that I might just run in my Double J Pro instead, but I love the way the treeless feels! My horse seems to run better in it as well....meh....?

When I bought my treeless I was told a felt/wool pad and girth for more grip. And thats what I use and it has never slipped on me, I have a tammy fischer not a bob marshal.

Have you ever done your exercises bareback? It could very well be YOU and not the saddle!:)

Not always true... I know there have been many other girls that have had the same problem. It all depends on the horses build, pad and cinch they were using.

A few questions....what pad are you using? How thick? And what style and type of cinch are you using?

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
