Slipping Saddle Fix

I have this western saddle that I have been using on my mare for a good time now. Its just that it has started slipping from side to side.

My friend has told me to get a neoprene saddle girth because right now I have a soft felt like girth and it has been well-used considering that too. Do you think this will fix my problem if I buy a new girth?

Could be a few issues. Neoprene girth could help. Also type of pad and fit of saddle may need to be looked at.

My first suggestion would be to check the saddle fit. If she has either lost or gained weight, changed muscle definition, etc then that can really affect how your saddle fits. After you have ruled out an ill fitting saddle as your culprit, you might consider a neoprene girth or neoprene pad. I personally hate all things neoprene but there are lots of folks that use and love it.

I have had good luck using real 100% Mohair girths for slipping issues. The roper style seems to work better than the straight girths.

I also agree it could be the saddle fit (mare could have gained muscle as you have been riding, changing the fit), saddle pad, saddle placement, etc.
