I honestly don't know how in the world that happens. I've seen it a million times too, but after having horses my entire life and riding lots of different horses of all body types with all kinds of different saddle pads, I've never had a saddle pad work its way out from under my saddle during a ride. It really makes me wonder what I'm doing different than those folks that constantly have trouble.


I don't have a picture of it other than what's been posted above, but I generally like my saddle pads to have no less than 1 inch of excess on all sides of my saddle and I try to keep it equal all the way around...same amount sticking out the front and back and same amount on each side.

I am like you with my preferred fit, and don't have the slippage problem either and try to get pads that compliment my saddle, I am very careful about the saddling process. But I swear, the amount of people I see that have the saddle pads slipped all the way back, or all scrunched on the neck just amazes and irritates my tack OCD

The pad doesn't usually start out that way. It's usually poor saddle fit and it makes me wonder why the horse doesn't complain.

Does anyone know if there is an English Tack version of this??
