You can get attachments for your martingale which clip to the D rings on your saddle, those usually help keep things from slipping too far back. If you do end up taking some flat lessons with my trainer we have a variety of riser and other riding pads you can try on without going to the extreme expense of buying a lot of pads lol

Actually we have a lot of those martingales I was talking about with the attachment that I'm sure you could also try if you come out.

It's called a breastplate ;) I would get one, and get breastplate D's that go on your sturrip bar. The ones on your saddle can rip off.

no- that a running martingale attachment for that breastplate. You can buy just a breastplate and put both the martingale and breastplate on the horse
