I got a Courts roping saddle for my Hanovarian/TB mare several months ago and it seems to fit her okay, but every pad I try slips back really badly. As in after a hard ride, I'll look back and the pad is completely over her hindquarters, out from under the saddle. I've had my saddle fitter out and she seems kind of happy with the saddle fit, but she wasn't really descriptive on why she was only kinda happy with it. She suggested that I get a Skito pad, but 1) these cost an arm and a leg and 2) they're pretty darn ugly. Lexi (my horse) seems comfortable in the saddle because if she wasn't, she would have told me so (she's five and she bucks if she's not comfortable). So here are my questions:
1) What issue with saddle fit would cause a pad to slip back so much?
2) Are there any pads that would help correct this problem?
3) If it isn't an issue with saddle fit, what kind of pad besides neoprene wouldn't slip back?
4) Are Skito pads really worth the money?
