  • We are loving our busy buddy, it’s been amazing on 2 of my horses! One is rehabbing and only hand-walking in the arena, so he’s been bored and biting with whoever is walking him. We put this on him and he’s great to walk and get out his boredom and anxiety on that. Then the other one I have is such a pester and annoying when the farrier comes. He’s always grabbing the shirt, belt, hat and just being screwy. On Friday when the farrier came we tried it and it kept his mind and mouth busy the whole time! My farrier thought it was the coolest thing and wished more horses had those.
    Thanks again,
  • Used mine for the first time yesterday. I could FEEL my horses back move. It was incredible having such a close contact with her! She moved more freely than with the 100% wool thick pad I was using. Plus the wool made her itch. I predict no itching with this cotton backed thin line pad. It contoured her back perfectly & my saddle too. Can’t wait to run barrels in it !

  • Hi there, I wanted to get in touch with you and let you know what a positive impact ThinLine has had with my riding. I am an Amercian Saddlebred trainer located east of Toronto, Ontario. We currently have 21 horses at our family owned/run facility as well as a number of students that train with us. About 10 years ago I was in a major car accident that caused a significant amount of back issues that were mainly soft tissue and very difficult to treat. This impacted my riding in a major way and there were moments when I thought I would have to give it up (not an easy feat for a 4th generation horse person as you can well imagine.) My husband and I went on a search to find something that might help that would work under a cutback saddleseat saddle. We discovered the ThinLine products at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto and were lucky enough to test the product while we were exhibiting one of our horses. I have been using both the ThinLine and Ultra ThinLine pads ever since. The decrease in my back pain while riding is remarkable: I find it next to impossible to ride without one and my horses love the benefit as well. All my students ride with the pads, and I have put a few other trainers in the states onto the pads as well. As I’m sure you are aware, saddleseat riders rarely use saddlepads to show in, but the ThinLine pads are discreet enough that they can be used to show in. While at home I use them between a baby pad and my saddle.

  • I bought a ThinLine pad for Bolero Bey+. It made a HUGE difference. I am convinced it’s the reason he earned his Legion of Merit. Thoroughly recommend it. He’s on R&R right now…on to the next award!

  • Dear ThinLine,

    I am writing just to say thank you. Thank you for making quality products! I have been using my half pad for years, it’s durable, my horses love it, and it definitely evens weight distribution. I recently ordered your flexible filly grazing muzzles for my two super easy keepers. Theses muzzles are by far the best I have found. I absolutely love how lightweight they are, and the fact that I can easily clean them between uses. I cannot speak to their durability yet but I believe they are a quality product and expect they will hold up very well. Thank you for caring about your customers enough to introduce your team, in my opinion that was an amazing decision and it really resonated with me. I hope this finds everyone well in these uncertain times and I applaud your business model and products.

    Stay Safe, and wash your hands!

  • I have back problems.. I LOVE mine. Now the only time my back aches is if I’m doing a particularly tough/long lesson or school. But I can actually sit the trot with mine.

    I do find it helps my horse also. Shes much looser over her back.
