    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 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 (,5465.html). With these, you shouldn't go ANYWHERE ;)

    I would get a breastplate and maybe a smaller girth! ;)
    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. =]
