I think a little more pad might help.

so how thick? I hate this pad. It's fake fleece that is super slippery so I am looking at getting a pad that is wool.

Is it really bad or does it seem to look like it fits?

It looks alright to me but unless your a bronc rider I'd shorten the strap between the front and back cinch.

I would get a thicker pad too. The wool would probably help, 1 or 1 1/2 may do some good.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I hope that isnt a toklak/ tucker coolback pad, I just ordered one for endurance rides and it is waiting on me to get home. Mine does have the Soutwest pattern canvas top so maybe it will be ok.
