I think it really depends on the brand. I trialed a Hilasion and it was complete and total junk for me, however my mare LOVED it. I was already aware that it's pretty hit or miss with that brand so I wasn't surprised. It had the western "fenders" and because they're essentially cut in half they rubbed my leg horribly and also since they attach to the bottom of the saddle they are literally right on top of the girth, and for how long I needed them(and I'm fairly tall) they wouldn't reach over the horn so it was absolutely infuriating to tack up. I hated it, mare loved it. I'm definitely going to look into a GOOD brand to try out in the future, hopefully they're better. I didn't have any issues with it slipping though which most people complain about.
