You can do what you're doing now, there's nothing wrong with it. You can also ride with just one or the other. If you plan on showing, either just the shaped pad or just the square pad would be best. If your saddle pad is slipping around, there should be a loop along the bottom part of the pad that you can slide your girth through and there should be straps with velcro along the front side and there you can loop it around your billets. This will help keep your saddle PAD from slipping around. If you saddle slips just a bit, that's normal because the horse is moving around. If it slips back a lot, you may need to get a breast collar to help hold your saddle in place. :)

I usually ride with a navaho pad folder up and a really thin pan under that. I prefer a filled pad (shape of the saddle) for showing.
