If this is your first trip to the ground, you only have 9 more to go before you can consider yourself a proper rider. (laughing)

I always give a prize for someone's first fall. Well deserved, IMO. Congratulations.

I agree with the others on using less padding.

Sounds like your cinch isnt tight enough... What you call tight and what others call tight can be 2 different things. I would cinch it tight, walk the horse off a min, cinch it again there will be slack.

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...
