I've been having the same problem with my Aussie saddle. Unfortunately I've determined (with some help from other people and from the company that made the saddle) that it's too wide for my very TB-ish appendix QH gelding and that's why it's slipping. I've tried anti-slip pads and even a special fitment correction pad, but it still slips backward into an improper position. So, width of the tree could be a problem for you, too.
I've also heard that Aussie saddles often don't work with gaited horses, so that might be your problem or at least a contributing factor. Because of the way Aussie saddles are supposed to sit on the horse, they can interfere with a gaited horse being able to execute a certain gait properly.
Have you talked to the company that made the saddle, or the shop where you bought it? Any ideas there?
