It is relatively uncommon for a saddle pad to be too large and cause slipping. More common is the fact that the saddle is an improper fit for your horse. That isn't to say that there isn't a problem with your tack but I would love to see the pad and the saddle on your horse.
Concerning the pad you asked about, personally, I would not use any pad that has a rubber or rubber like material against my horse. I don't like the way it builds up heat and I've see the rubbing and hair loss that it has caused on some horses.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
