    My sit is fine if you look at what a had said before how it happen you would know that I had not put a lot of wight on the left side it was just little bit and because she turn the other way and that fouse cause the saddle to slip. And this horse is not over wight at all it just she is build rounder then most horse. And this has only ever happen at the canter.

    And if you look at what I just said, if you're sitting in a saddle that is sitting slightly to one side it is impossible to sit balanced in the saddle. I did not say that you have a poor seat.

    Clearly you don't want to do anything about this issue, we can't wave a magic wand and make the saddle fit unless it gets professionally fitted. So go ahead and keep doing what you're doing and hope that it doesn't happen again.

    Don't mean to be rude but.....why did you even post this thread? You obviously had a set opinion at the start....Saddle slipping = bad fitting saddle like everyone said. But I guess your trainer knows better then all of the HF population that has replied to your thread. Good luck.

    But the thing is I have told her the saddle does not fit right and she said it was fine. This was when I first start riding the pony. And I talk to someone that was riding her before me and all saddle fit her really bad

    Here's a few links on how to identify if the saddle is fitting properly or not, and what damage an ill fitting saddle can do not only to the horse, but the danger to the rider of a horse that misbehaves because the saddle is causing them pain.

    For 6 months my "saddle fitter" (she also sold me the saddle) told me my saddle was fine, for 6 months I told her no its isn't, it was slipping to the right and popping forward.. I found another saddle fitter who re-fit my saddle and all was fine. I sold that saddle...and bought a Schleese dressage saddle, that fits me and my mare to perfection.

    Not all saddles are created equal, cheaper is not better imo. What type of saddle is it? And can you get another saddle fitter out to re-fit that saddle? I understand its not your horse, but if you can spend $$ on lessons, why not spend some of those lesson $$ on a saddle that fits well. The horse will work better for you and will mover better for you with it fitting properly.

    It look kind of like the pic in this link (as in the sweat pattern on her back.) ://www.flickr.com/photos/endurancerider/2521397773/
    But she does not act like the saddle hurt and I would not know were to start if I was to look for a saddle
