SADDLE PANNIERS AND PACK PANNIERS
Saddle Panniers are more likely to cause the saddle to slip to one side than pack panniers on a pack saddle. Pack saddles have many more straps and rigging to secue the loads better. And , the pack saddle is specifically designed to carry loads. If you use saddle panniers purchase the models that have belly straps to make the saddle panniers more secure.
Breeching and Breast Collar I would strongly encourage you to buy a good saddle breeching and breast collar if you are going to do much packing with saddle panniers. Especially if you go up and down hills.
The breeching will prevent the saddle cinch from sliding forward while going downhill. When riding a horse or mule sometimes you can feel when the saddle has slipped forward and dismount and make the necessary correction. However, on a pack animal you will not immediately know when the saddle cinch has slipped forward. A saddle cinch that slips forward on a pack animal will cause a significant cinch gall that will require weeks to heal before you can use your horse/mule again.
I prefer using breeching in very steep country. However, if the mountains are not too steep I use a crupper. You might want to practice riding with a crupper on level ground as some horses are not too fond of a crupper.
