I'm really thinking that the cinch almost had to be too loose for the saddle to move that far that easily.
I also have a pad (that I almost never use) that is far worse about slipping than any other pad I've ever had due to the really thick fleece that covers the underside of it, but with the cinch tight enough, it'll stay put well enough to be safe. On that one, I run the cinch tighter than on my other pads though. The tendency to slip varies widely in pads.
My favorite pad is a Weaver Memory Foam pad. Saw it in an ad in a magazine under Stacy Westfall's saddle... Posted via Mobile Device
