I got my horse all saddled and I did everything I usually do, walk her around to let the air out all that so I know that's not the reason. The cinch was tight and super snug like it wasnt goin to go anywhere, as soon as I got on it kept sliding to her side.. could this just be because my pad is new? Just sayin iv only put one ride on my pad and I didnt have any issues with it before. I mean I only weigh like 120lbs so wth?! Lol please help!
Well I use the SMX Air Rider Barrel Pad, and I have to get on from a mounting block since if I get in on from the ground my saddle will slide all the way to his side, unless it so tight I can't get a single finger in the side. So it may be the pad, I just suggest using a mounting block or getting someone to give you a leg up.
