Reduce Rider Movement * Protect Horses’ Backs * Improve Saddle Fit
This pad improves horse and rider communication by allowing riders to sit closer, and do more with lighter aids. Designed to help horses soften and engage faster.
One of ThinLine's favorite products. This pad is so easy. No fussing with half pads or making sure your basic ThinLine is in the right place. Just put the saddle on and go. ThinLine creates a spine free channel and wither profile by lifting your saddle up off the cotton pad.
This is the best pad for saddle slip issues. If your pad is slipping we recommend this single unit solution, adding secondary pads like half pads often complicate saddle slip. This cotton pad with Ultra ThinLine (and pockets for shimming) will give you all the comfort, protection and fit you need. It will stay in place and makes tacking up easy, your ThinLine is always in the right place.
What are the Effects of ThinLine Tack?
“The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to move through the back. ThinLine receives stories daily of how ThinLine saddle pads have improved a horse’s movement or a rider’s ability to sit their horse’s gaits. The riders tell ThinLine they have little or no back strain and that their horses are working better and happier. It’s a two-way street of comfort, preventing problems, resolving challenges and just having better communication.”
What is ThinLine?
ThinLine incorporates a unique, open cell technology which moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. The result is 95% shock absorption. The magic lies in the way ThinLine absorbs shock but allows the rider to truly feel the horses back. Motion is reduced by the rider and the horse and rider can work together in unison. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an FEI Rider ThinLine improves comfort, communication and equitation.
