 What makes ThinLine so different?

“The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to lift their backs, developing strength and top-line.”  It has been endorsed by Veterinarians, for horses, as well as Spinal Surgeons for riders. It is a top pick for Master Saddlers around the world. Equine Chiropractors and Massage Therapists carry it on their trucks to keep horses going strong, supple, and relaxed.  Trainers and riders find it a trusted product to improve rider equitation.

Banner Positive Impact

It is the dual benefits of extraordinary shock absorption and rider motion reduction that sets ThinLine apart from other saddle pads.

Ease of use and a perfect fit are hallmarks of this English cotton saddle pad.  When using this full saddle pad your ThinLine is always in the right place.  It eliminates the need to use multiple pads, thereby reducing tack-up time and unnecessary thickness.  The 95% shock absorption rate and no-slip properties of ThinLine mean you have all you need for equine comfort and protection.  Easy to wash, feel free to bleach the white ones.

The ThinLine Cotton Quilted Pads are made with ThinLine (3/16″) over a high-quality quilted cotton base pad, creating a contoured wither profile and spine-free channel. This design allows the ThinLine to lay on either side of the spine so that it is always in the right place. Delivering the maximum shock absorbency in the minimum thickness. Guarantee comfort

ThinLine will not alter the fit of a custom saddle but it is also shimmable for fine-tuning saddle fit.  We love the way it encourages horses to lift and engage through the back.  It quiets rider movement, clearing the way for better communication and connection using lighter aids. This single unit cotton quilted saddle blanket solves slipping issues by eliminating the need for two pads and keeps the ThinLine right where you need it.

Colors and Options

Pads are available in jumping and dressage squares in black, white, and navy.

Fitted cotton saddle pads for jumping and dressage are available in white and black.

Saddle Fitting with ThinLine Shims

Our trim to fit shims may be used as a full shim to double your protection or you may easily create front, bridging, and rear shims by cutting the full trim to fit shim with a pair of scissors. Up to 3 layers of shims can be utilized.

Cotton Saddle Pad Care Instructions

Machine wash cold in front loading washer. Turn the ThinLine to the inside. Spin to remove excess water. Hang to dry naturally with no heat source, including sun. Using a fan speeds the drying process. If you have a white pad, you may use bleach products such as soft scrub on the ThinLine material as well as using a little bleach in the wash cycle. All pads come with a one-year full replacement warranty when following our care instructions. When care instructions are followed, our cotton pads are proving to have an expected longevity of 7-8 years.

5 reviews for Cotton Quilted Saddle Pads

  1. Jolie

    After a long search and consideration, I selected the black cotton quilted pad for my horse. The pad works very well with the saddle and fits my horse correctly. It was well-received, my horse never objects to being saddled or ridden with this equipment. I highly recommend this line and plan to try other items such as the bareback pad.

  2. Hillary

    I love this pad! It provides protection to his back without changing the fit of my saddle.

  3. Lisa

    Customer Lisa Samuel- I received my fitted dressage pad last week and absolutely love it! It looks great on my Fjord, we wanted a fitted pad to free up his shoulder as well as help with less material to look at on a short drafty body. The thin line technology is an added benefit to the look and feel of the pad. I will be buying more of these and only using this pad from now on…. you truly do get what you pay for!

  4. Claudia

    I bought mine several years ago and I still like it and it is holding up very well. Two suggestions here for improvement. It would be great if you offered multiple sizes. I ride a large pony and this pad is a bit big on him. But most importantly, please, please add a vent strip to the center line like you have on the sheepskin half pad. Especially for the endurance pad (which I also own). These pads get very hot as there is not a lot of ventilation. My horses have Cushing’s and sweat a lot when ridden. A little more ventilation would go a long way. I have not purchased another pad because I am waiting for you to make this upgrade.

  5. carol berman

    I have a dressage pad and love it also! Fits my horse very well and I like the added thin line in the pad. I would have to agree with the venting issue as it takes so long to dry and the pockets stay damp with the shims in them. I line dry the pad and do not put it in the dryer . I think a vent of some sort would allow faster drying time.
