I love trail riding in my Aussie saddle, but I can't for the life of me find anything that will keep the saddle from slipping back while I ride. This image from Down Under Saddlery's site shows how an Aussie saddle is and is not supposed to fit:
The pommel and the cantle are supposed to be level with each other. When mine scoots back, the pommel is lower than the cantle. (Sorry if those are the wrong terms to use with an Aussie, but hopefully you still know what I'm talking about.)
First I tried that tacky shelf liner stuff that you can get at the supermarket. That didn't work. Now I'm trying a Nunn Finer no-slip pad but that isn't working either. I have a breastplate that I've tried, but I need to get the strap that attaches to the girth shortened because it's waaaay too long.
Tonight as I was driving home from the barn I wondered if I might be better off just getting some kind of half pad that would cushion and pad up the front part of the saddle so I don't have to worry whether it is slipping back. Would that work?
Has anyone found anything that remedies saddle slippage?
