Cinch?
 
OMG! so today i decided to take out my horse for a little ride but ended up not bein able to! So i just got a new best ever pad and actually its pretty thick, its one of the felt ones. My old pad was really cheap and thin so my cinch tightened like a charm, but since it was cheap i wanted to get something better for my horse.. Anyway.. i got my horse all saddled and i did everything i usually do, walk her around to let the air out all that so i know thats not the reason. The cinch was tight and super snug like it wasnt goin to go anywhere, as soon as i got on it kept sliding to her side.. could this just be because my pad is new? just sayin iv only put one ride on my pad and i didnt have any issues with it before. i mean i only weigh like 120lbs so wtf?! lol please help!

Well I use the SMX Air Rider Barrel Pad, and I have to get on from a mounting block since if I get in on from the ground my saddle will slide all the way to his side, unless it so tight I cant get a single finger in the side. So it may be the pad, I just suggest using a mounting block or getting someone to give you a leg up.

It is a wool pad is a possibility, have you checked your saddle fit? It may
be two wide..

I would check saddle fit....And your pad sounds like it might be too thick.
