Saddle Pads for horses with high withers?

So my horse has very high withers and I've gotten a custom made saddle for him, but I worry about it being uncomfortable for his back because it has a tendency to slip back despite the breastplate His physio has told me about a new saddle pad called the Apollo Air saddle pad its apparently made for horses with high withers (Apollo Air Saddle Pad General Purpose - Saddle Pads & Numnahs) It is expensive so I wana know if anyones heard anything about it or knows someone who has one before i make any decisions about buying one.
If anyone has any other suggestions I'd love to hear them...I want Joey to be as comfortable as possible when he's been ridden =] Thanks a million
