Dry areas after a workout means that the saddle is too tight in that area, and is likely not fitting properly overall. I would highly suggest getting a saddle fitter out to pinpoint the problem; either they will be able to fix the problem with an adjustment to the saddle, or they will recommend another solution.
A horse working in a too-tight saddle is comparable to us wearing a too-tight shoe; nothing but a better fitting shoe is going to alleviate the problem.
