Does this saddle look like it fits?

Hi, I was wondering if my saddle fits on my horse and if I am putting it on right. Sometimes while I'm riding it tends to slip back a little bit. Don't know if that if a big deal. Hehe my saddle pad isn't broken in yet.

Hard to say without a good frontal photo but just from the one, the saddle could be moved forward a little more and it looks like it may be pinching a bit in the front (too narrow for his shoulders)

We need pics, with head up, from the front, side, back side. It does look a little narrow in the front though.

Looks like it could stand to be moved up a few inches (a breastcollar may help). Also, make sure that your cinch makes a straight line down from the rigging instead of being too far forward.

I worry to see your horse tied to a barbwire fence by the reins, with a curb bit. A lot of danger there.

The saddle looks like it is too narrow in front, thus it slide back. It's hard to say because the white horse kind of disappears into the back ground.

IF you really want accurate opinions, take him to level ground, in good lighting and get someone to help you. PHoto him with NO pad on and from various angles.

TinyLiny, he is acually wearing a snaffle, and I just tied him there real quick to get the picture. (And it's not barbed wire) :)

Oh, yes, I see the snaffle now (hard to see). I assumed it was barbed wire, just looked like that in photo. It's still not maybe such a good idea to tie him low like that to a fence post that if he spooked , he could pull out of the ground and have a huge wreck. But, I am the kind of person who always imagines the worst case scenario.
