High Wither Solutions

Hoove has very high standie/ TB type withers. His new saddle has a tendency to slip back just an inch, but it's enough to knock the pommel into the back of his shoulder blades.

I do have a build-up cut-back, but I'm looking at some other options in case it doesn't give him enough relief. I know they make a couple different options- wither pads, built up pads, and gel. I'm leaning towards a gel...what do you guys think?

Oh...heh. I forgot to mention, I haven't tried the saddle with the built-up....it was slipping with his regular fleece blankie.

Tacky Too pads don't slip - of course, I've heard mixed reviews on them ;)
Other than that, have you tried a riser pad that fits over the withers to push the saddle up higher? I'll try and find one online to show you what I mean.

Hmm, they shouldn't slip. But then again who knows lol.
I say trying another pad that's really padded & high-up.

Pads can and do slip, which is why (especially english saddles) have those loops that the girth slides through as well as those velcro strips that you attach to the billets. I didn't use those once and my pad literally slipped out the back side of the saddle.
