Does my saddle fit?

I recently got a new horse. He's a racking horse and when I put my English saddle on him it tends to slide back a little on him. He does have more of a dip in his back than my other horse so I'm not sure if this is the reason it slides back, or if it's because the saddle ain't fitting him. When I take the saddle off there are no spots that are dry, but last time there were two spots where his hair was matted down more with sweat. It almost looked like maybe there was more pressure being applied in the two spots near where the back of the saddle would have been, but I'm not sure. Is this normal?

Do you have pictures?

That always helps quite a bit.

From the front, back and side too.

^ Agreed but take them without the pad.
