saddle probably doesn't fit or you might want to try a breast collar.

I got a new saddle because I was literally riding on my side..it was too small for her. My horse doesn't have much for withers so I also bought her a breast collar and it has helped as well.

I agree, check saddle fit. But some horses have a way of moving that makes the saddle slide.

So I would use a breastplate, no-slip saddle pad (Nunn Finer No Slip Saddle Pad: Legacy Tack) and/or a neooprene girth (http://www.adamshorsesupply.com/browse.cfm/4,5465.html). With these, you shouldn't go ANYWHERE ;)

Or your horse is built so uphill that is it almost impossible to keep the saddle from slipping back... ;]

If you can, I would get a saddle that fits your horse the best you can get. If the saddle slips back, get a breastplate and a none slip pad. =]

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
