    Side-to-side slippage is often due to the saddle being too narrow and it doesn't take much to cause a problem, especially as you seem to have one larger shoulder (5) which will bias the saddle left if it was evenly flocked. That won't show in a static shot because the saddle isn't sunk into the fat over the muscle behind the horse's shoulder.

    I could be wrong but I'd say you have a M-MW saddle on a MW-W horse :(

    And I'd say the offcentre cantle is the way the horse is standing :)

    I always learn so much from your posts!!!

    The saddle fitter finally made it out and was able to help me out recently so I thought I would give an update. Turns out that you were right, unclearthur; this saddle was just a smidge too narrow. I now have an appropriately sized demo saddle, so we'll be trying it out. I'm looking forward to feeling whether or not the side to side slipping problem is improved/resolved by having the correct size saddle!

    Anyway, I mostly just wanted to commend you unclearthur for being able to look at a few pictures and listen to my description and conclude that the saddle was mildly narrow!
