ThinLine Full Sheepskin Trifecta Half Pad

New Upgrades:

  • Now with a spine channel.  Our Merino sheepskin is sheared shorter in the center of the pad creating a spine-free center band.
  • Raised wither profile to accommodate more top-lines.
  • Improved cotton base – higher quality cotton with denser weave and light wool fill.
  • Featuring – stronger and more durable billet straps.
We added more ThinLine to this customer favorite! 

Now with a longer drop.  The ThinLine panel has been enlarged to protect below the stirrup bar. The larger pocket allows you to shim more behind the point of the shoulder.

  • Shimmable for customized saddle fit with shims made of the same trademark foam.
  • The shaped wither profile provides clearance while the ThinLine panels help create a spine-free channel.
  • 95% shock absorption is provided by the ThinLine foam which also minimizes rider movement creating a quieter seat.
  • ThinLine’s open-cell technology provides breath-ability and is non-slip.
  • Medical grade Merino wool on a natural hide.


What is ThinLine?

ThinLine is a thin, shock-absorbing non-slip breathable foam. The only product endorsed by surgeons, master saddlers, riders, and veterinarians.

Where is the ThinLine?

It is sewn onto the panel of our half saddle pads.

“The manner in which ThinLine 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.

The dual benefit of extraordinary shock absorption and rider motion reduction sets ThinLine apart from other saddle pads.

Medical Grade Sheepskin Wash Instructions

Our products come with a full-year warranty provided they are cared for as directed.

Regular maintenance: Dry between rides. Place the pad sheepskin face up in a cool environment, in humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Once the pad is dry, lightly brush it with a pet brush to help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride.

Washing and drying: Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water. Use a soap designed for sheepskin to keep your pad under warranty. You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the ThinLine panels, gentle wash cycle, cold. Remove excess water in the pad by squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle.

Fill washing machine (or bathtub for really large items) with water, then add a sheepskin soap. Soak for 1 hour squeezing soap and water through item from time to time. If the item is really dirty you may need to repeat the process. Squeeze or use the spin cycle to remove excess water and lay over a rack or rail to dry with sheepskin facing up. Keep out of the sun, and away from direct heat and dryers. Please do not brush or pull sheepskin fibers when wet. To prevent shrinkage, gently stretch the hide while drying.

Full Sheepskin Pads may take 2-3 days to dry. Sheepskin trimmed items should be good to go in a day. The ThinLine shim may slow drying time, we recommend placing absorbent products such as paper towels or chamois cloths inside the pocket.

On white pads you may use Scotch Guard to the rolls to keep them clean and extend washing cycles.

When the care instructions are followed properly, our sheepskin pads are proving to have an expected 4-5 years of use.

  1. Pam

    I have been using the Thinline full sheepskin half pad for about 2 years now. The pad is shimmable and has been invaluable for my horse’s back. As he has developed muscling along his back I have been able to adjust the shims to ensure the saddle is still fitting correctly. He LOVES this pad and I believe that he actually moves better whenever I ride with it. So, I always use the pad! This really is the best half-pad I’ve ever used and I love it. It also looks great! I highly recommend the product. You won’t be disappointed!!

  2. Cindy

    I have this pad and love love love it. It provides great protection and easy to use with any saddle pad. I still have good feel when riding and the shims are easy to get in and out. Washes wonderfully, does take extra time to dry, but worth the effort.

  3. katelyn.washart

    I have had this pad for almost a year now and I love it! The sheepskin is high quality and it fits my saddle well. I like that it is shimmable for the perfect fit and molds to my horses back over time. I would definitely recommend this pad to anyone looking!

  4. Anne Morrison (verified owner)

    I am a riding instructor and all of my client horses and school horses, and of course my own horses, go in some kind of ThinLine half pad. My own horses go in this pad, the full sheepskin Trifecta. It really has the best of all half pads combined into one: adjustability (with shims, able to be personalized easily to your own horse’s needs), high quality sheepskin for temperature control, and the unbeatable shock absorption of ThinLine. My own horse has had lumbar pain and granulomas under the saddle area pre-ThinLine. This pad is part of his management to keep his back sound and happy. I don’t ride without it and recommend it to everyone. I love the new update of the spine relief with shorter shearling. Innovation for the benefit of the horse!

    Hi.  Historically we do not see issues with the ThinLine sheepskin half pad moving.  Our saddle fitters report this is typically because the saddle is too wide.  You could add a set of ThinLine shims to your pad to take up the extra space or try a thicker pad underneath.  Let us know how this goes.
