Saddle fit...dry spots behind withers

Lately my saddle has been leaving large spots with no sweat around my horse's withers. I used to have this problem, starting using a half pad, went away, but has now come back. The saddle fits fine. I think part of the problem is my pads (square and half) and saddle have a tendency to slip back while riding, so it puts pressure in a weird spot. But I don't know for sure or if that's the only problem. What would you think? What shoud I do?

Hi :) are you using a English or western saddle?
Do you have a photo of the dry spots after you've went for a ride?

Sounds to me like your saddle does not fit properly

I have a pic of the saddle pad that shows the dry spot, but I can't upload it now because I'm not on my computer.

If the saddle slips back, it probably doesnt' fit as well as you think.

I don't know what to do. Others with more saddle knowledge might have some good ideas.

Make sure you take the pictures without a saddle pad and with the saddle lightly girthed up.

I'll take some with just a saddle and girth and some with the saddle and saddle pad too.
