Looks decent to me. Does he move willingly? Any pinned ears at the start of a trot or canter? Sweat marks even? Saddle stay in place while riding?
I use English stirrup leathers. There are pads made for Australian leathers, or you could try something like the pads they use on seatbelts. Fuzzy socks works OK by me, but as a 54 year old "Old Fart", fashion isn't high on my list!
