Saddle sliding with Foam type Girth

Bought a saddle , pad, girth, and matching bridle and chest plate a few wks ago and I didnt really like the girth to begin with. It looks and feels like a foam type, sort of feels not too strong. The lady is a woman who sells alot of tack and she is a nice lady, not one who would try and get over on people but it seems as if that type of foam is making the saddle slide. When I go to get on, even with the saddle tight, it wants to slide downard. I didnt have a problem with the rope girth with the other saddle that I have.

Just wanted to know if anyone else experienced anything like this with that type of girth and are there any fixes for it? I don't want to buy another one, though if push comes to shove she would have to honor me somehow on the purchase of another one. A piece of the foam even broke off this morning. This was my 2nd time riding since buying it.

I've had saddle sliding problems because of my cinch before. It was fleece, it was also too big :S It's kind of hard to tell if it's the problem in your case just by the photo.

That girth looks like it has seen better days.

Jeez, those must have been a hard two times if it took out chunks like that! Scared to think what kind of riding you do.

Neoprene is slippery, especially when the horse sweats under it. A multistrand cinch is more grippy.

that's just one spot that broke off this morning when I went to put it on. I looked at the threads and it looks kind of supspect. I don't even know it it is neoprene. It almost feels like foam, soft foam that's cheap . She had it priced at 32 bucks but because I bought a lot of other stuff I paid 20 bucks for it

Ouch, I think you got ripped off. I've had the same girth for 3 years, and it was a handmedown that someone else used another 3 or so years previously- and it doesn't have a tear like that in it. (Mine is neoprene)

Edit: Soft foam? I think I know what you're talking about. Those things are cheap and junk... only tried one once- never again.
