Where is the ThinLine?
It is sewn onto the panel of our Cotton Quilted Saddle Pads. The only product endorsed by surgeons, master saddlers & veterinarians.
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.
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 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 in shock absorbency in the minimum thickness.
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 square pad solves slipping issues by eliminating the need for two pads and keeps the ThinLine right where you need it.
