help with saddle on paso fino

just bought me a new horse a paso fino at that the owner gave me the bridle and saddle well I decided to go riding but failed at that attempt because I put the saddle on him and when I tried to get on the saddle slid down I tried making it tighter and the same thing happened I wouldn't go tighter to not make him uncomfortable could it be that the saddle is too wide oh yeah its a charro saddle.... im going to try my wifes saddle tomorrow its a western saddle it the same thing happens im going to need to see whats going on

More likely the saddle is too narrow. Tightening the cinch more will do nothing. Every Paso I have seen are pretty wide, I would try a full qh bar saddle, preferably NOT full rigged, maybe a 7/8 rig.
