Back to Basics

This best-seller is made to order!

ThinLine Basic Pads are a fan favorite and trusted by many top equestrian athletes and everyday horsemen. English Basic Saddle Pads offer excellent back protection for both the horse and rider. These pads are discreet and provide top-of-the-line protection right under the saddle. The ThinLine material used in the pads absorbs shock and reduces pressure points, which makes your horse feel comfortable and free in the back. Additionally, the ThinLine ventilates heat across the pad and is non-slip. The pads create stability and support, generating confidence and freedom of movement for your horse. If the cost is not a serious barrier, we recommend choosing the contour pad, as the more ThinLine foam you have, the better the pad works.

Did we mention how easy this material is to care for and clean?  They don’t even require washing!  That’s right, just wipe it off and store it completely flat.  This pad is breathable and durable, built to last.
