agree with it sounding too loose, but I also think a saddle will slide, regardless of girth tension, if the horse is a certain shape. I rode an awesome little mare that was fairly round, with a straight back, little withers and smaller shoulders, that was naturally built downhill. With the right saddle she felt fine on the flat and going up, but you HAD to have a crupper on her going down long steep grades, or your saddle would slide forwards.
