Major saddle pad slipage- how do I stop it?

I've just started lunging my boy with the saddle on, and noticed today that the saddle pad slips out from under the saddle whenever he goes faster than a walk. The saddle itself stays in the right place, but the pad slips back underneath the saddle. He has a very boucy trot, which I think is contributing to the pad slipage, but I'm wondering what would cause this to happen, and how do I stop it?
He has an australian saddle, and stock saddle pad.

Have someone check the saddle fit.

Do you have keepers on your pad?
Like straps at the front of the pad, and at the bottom where the girth lays?
If you do, you should put the ones at the front of the pad around the billet straps, and put the girth through the keepers at the bottom.

The pad does have straps at the front, and a place to tread the girth through, so maybe I'll give that a try.
I think the saddle fits pretty decently. I've tried quite a few on him, and this one seems to fit the best. I think its probably mainly due to his bouncy trot (its massive). The saddle doesn't seem to move at all when he trots, just the pad.

Use the keepers, my english saddle pads slip back really badly without the girth keeper.

Get a different pad, I had the same issue with a couple different pads under my Aussi saddle, went with a Tucker southwestern top fleece pad, stays put now.
