Sounds like your saddle doesn't fit then. You need a saddle with a wider tree and flatter bars, wide Full QH bars, and a thinner saddle pad.
Once you find a saddle that fits, I'd recommend a ThinLine pad
over a thin single or double thickness woven blanket, or over a thin felt liner pad (1/2" thick or thinner). This set up works very well for wide horses, to provide cushion and is very non-slip. Or, if you'd prefer to use just one pad, then the new 1/2" ThinLine Pro-Tech Felt pad,
1/2" felt with 1/4" built in ThinLine material.
