Saddle slipping forward

Let me say first the saddle fit was checked on both horses last Fall and this Spring. And I'm planning on calling my fitter today.

However... My saddle started to slip forward on both horses (especially bad on my paint) quite recently (may be couple weeks back or so). And the girth is getting very loose in no time. So I wonder what could be a reason for that as I'm out of ideas... :(

My saddle was doing this and it was because of her lack of wither :/ hope this helps.

Could it be the girth, Val? Could the elastics being stretched out due to age? I doubt that it is the saddle since it is so new, unless both horses have lost a lot of weight lately.

iride, that was my guess (and my mom saying so too). But the girth is just 3 years old. So I wonder if it's already old..?

No, they didn't loose any weight for sure (just grew muscles on neck). And when I put a saddle without girth/pad on either back it sits right behind the shoulder and looks balanced and tight (when I try to push it forward or backward it doesn't move).
