tail crupper questions

I am new to cruppers but have one horse that I have tried all sorts of different saddles on her and while some work a little better, all saddles slide forward on her going down very steep terrain. So I have been inclined to try a crupper, but I am wondering which ones are best and what to expect with using one. I would tend to think sores would be rubbed on a horse. Are there cruppers that would be better for not rubbing. Also any other problems experienced with them. Thanks

Here is a pic of my mare. She's a mustang. Oh also she has high withers which is what the saddle maker told me. I am getting a saddle that should fit her better, but it sounds like I am still going to have the problem. Does anyone have any other advice for saddle slipping. I have also wondered about the no slip pads you put under your saddle pad. (They are perforated rubber) Anybody know much about them?

She's butt high and it causes a saddle to crawl forward, worse yet when going down hill. It you get a crupper get a good one because you want the quality of leather and how it's made. Even tho it's teardrop shaped the leather that touches the horse will be smooth. Folds are what would make her sore. Google mule breeching. Like a harness this encircles the horse's hindquarters, Some horses don't like a crupper but prefer the breeching.

I agree with saddlebag.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

That crupper doesn't have any edges.

Also has anybody tried the rubber pads that go between the horse and blanket or are those just a gimmick?

And also she is a 4 yr old mustang caught when she was 3, could she be downhill a little because she still has some growing or is this probably just her build.

She could grow some more. The crupper looks pretty good. I haven't heard of rubber pads for blankets?
