I'm going to disagree on the matter. If you have a saddle that doesn't fit your horse, and you are not balanced too, then I'm thinking that a no slip pad is going to rub your horse sore. In fact, part of the problem of balancing can be attributed to the roll your saddle has from not fitting him - giving him a different pad is masking the problem not fixing it.
I'll say that with the understanding that I hate those pads anyway but coupled with the two other problems, and you will make a 3rd one. The only pads I use are the 100% wool pads. They wick moisture, conform to the horse's back, and have a greater shock absorption then anything else out there.
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.
