ThinLine- the most comfortable and effective shock absorber for both horses and riders.  Every ThinLine Pad comes with this amazing ThinLine material. We designed this cut back saddle pad exclusively for saddle seat riders.

By adding comfort and shock absorption in this cutback design, we help improve the overall lift and gaited action of these wonderful breeds of horses.

The ThinLine Saddle Seat Saddle Pad is designed with a cut-back to create that no-saddle-pad look with all the shock absorption you need to have your gaited horse perform at their best.


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 perfect fit are hallmarks of this cut back 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.

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. 

Extra features: this cut back pad is shimmable for fine tuning saddle fit.

Available in Black and Dark Brown

  • Made for Saddle Seat saddles over 21 and 22 inches.

Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A Thank you for your question! The large Saddle Seat pad has a 20" spine length, 22" at it's longest (not including the cutback), 16.75" front drop, 7" rear drop.
  2. A Thank you for your question! The best way to see if one pad will work for both saddles is to measure the outside dimensions of both saddles including the flaps and skirts. The spine length of our Saddle Seat Pad is 22", so likely will not provide enough coverage under your western saddle. You may want to have a look at our Endurance and Drop Rigging pad. The front drop on this pad is 19.5", which is just a little shorter that the drop on our fitted dressage pad.
