Best Saddle pad for horse with no withers

My western saddle tends to slip a bit even though it appears to fit my horse's back fine. I use a plain mayatex saddle blanket. I'm wondering if a different saddle pad will help and/or if a back cinch will help.

You may want to try a saddle pad that is designed to reduce slipping. There are quite a few of them on the market that feature materials designed to help grip and reduce slippage.

I use Reinsman Tacky Too pads. They are nice quality pads, my mare has mutton withers and it works great on her. It doesn't slip at all.
Hope this helps!

Rather than change your pad, consider a multistrand mohair cinch. The individual strands provide more grip. One good thing about a mutton withered horse is it makes the rider focus on balance. By putting more pressure on one stirrup, the saddle starts moving over. You may be riding unbalanced (side to side) and doing just that.
