Question need help with "crooked" rider

I have a Dixieland saddle that was made for my MFT mare that fits her fine BUT I'm built crooked. I have a 3 inch divet in the left side of the saddle and a 1.5 inch in the right. (Side note. I've always worn the left side off my bicycle seats too. I was twice told that my right leg is 1/8 inch shorter.) So, I'm constantly getting off and readjusting the saddle back from left tilt to center. Last week it wore a 4" spot of hair pretty far off the top of her left hip. That was with readjusting about 6-7 times in 3 hours. I'm using a 3/4 inch wool pad that I bought with the saddle, roller mohair roper cinch & leather latigo. So, since I sit "heavy" on the left I need help on how to fix Me. I can't put her through that again. Thoughts? Suggestions? THANKS
