I have never heard of using centerfire rigging to keep a saddle on ( im thinking your asking about it to keep the back from coming up because your horse is down hill?) I use centerfire on my gelding because my saddle causes the girth to dig into the back of his legs.

Yes I'm asking about it to help keep the back of the saddle down. I was assuming it would keep the saddle on as well. Since it's a way to tie the girth on? Or am I not understanding how it works?

I still have to get those pictures on here I know. Thank you for adding yours! I'm going to put a back cinch on and see how that feels.

Yes it would keep the saddle on, but for what you need, I would just go with the back cinch.

I almost did when I had an aussie saddle. That didnt fit very good at all, so I sold it and bought this saddle. Think that would work for me? Trial and error is expensive with horse tack! This is smokey when I got him. He found a hornets nest right befoe they sold him, that's what all those spots are.

A riser pad will make any saddle fit issues worse, but can help raise the front if it is simply just a downhill issue. I have used one before on a downhill colt, and had no issues with it causing pressure points or a bad fit. If you can find one to borrow or cheap, it never hurts to try it out.
