Exclamation my saddle slips on my pad argh!

So my saddle has been sliding back on wither relief pad ever since I started using a grip pad underneath everything! Now my pad doesn't slip anymore, it stays in place but my saddle is the problem now. I think its the way my TB moves because my saddle doesn't slide back on this other horse that I ride. Can anyone help me?!

Welcome to the forum!

It sounds like the saddle doesn't fit your horse. If it doesn't slip on the other horse, it probably fits that horse better. Do you have another saddle you can try?

I dont:( My horse has somewhat high withers if that makes a difference. Maybe its the way that I ride? Or maybe my girth isn't tight enough.

And I know for sure my saddle doesn't fit anymore because her shoulders got so muscular lol. If only I had the money to get a new one... For now im just trying to think of ways to prevent my saddle from sliding back.

Do you use a breast collar when you ride? It can help with sliding back. I don't ride without one on the trails. I can do without it if I am just plunking around the house, but on the trails...well, lets just say having the saddle slide too far backwards is NOT a pleasant experience for either horse or rider. Fortunately, the mare I had at the time was a good girl, and I didn't get kicked. It was sure embarassing having to re-saddle her with all my companions standing around laughing at me!

I do understand financial constraints, but would be loathe to continue using tack I knew was improperly fitted for the horse it was being used on.

My wither pad has fixed the saddle fit issue it just now that im using a grip pad my saddle is moving because of the way my horse moves. It only happens when I jump though.. and no I don't use a breast collar but its worth considering. Right now im trying to find a solution withing my budget:/ Im almost wondering if I put the pad to far up her withers and my saddle is moving back to where it needs to be...
