So let’s get riding in the ThinLine Comfort Bareback Saddle Pad.

  • One size and the girth and billet system fits everything from a pony to a draft horse. Please see below for detailed measurements.
  • The bareback saddle pad includes our leather reinforced billets, a non slip neoprene girth with steel roller buckles and double keepers.  Feel free to add additional equipment with the front and rear D-rings.
  • Replacement Girths are available and sold separately.
  • Our key component, ThinLine (3/16″), is sewn to the top of the bareback saddle pad. The pads design provides riders with the opportunity to find their natural seat.  And the non-slip waffle weave, used for the base construction of this pad, ensures the pad stays in place.

    Kayleen Diane Johnson I’m a huge fan of ThinLine! My son is learning to ride independently this summer in my ThinLine comfort plus bareback pad & I am also starting a young mare – that same bareback pad is the first piece of equipment she’s ever felt cinched on. This piece of equipment is priceless to me!

    Elaine Lockhead Costello, as much as I adore your products – my favorite part is reading these kinds of articles about you. In the midst of unemployment as a single mother, I began handcrafting artisan style bitless bridles. With encouragement of family and friends – as well as – the inspiration I find in hearing your story, I took a huge leap of faith and started my own tack company. I just wanted to let you know what a positive impact following your company has had on me as I carve a niche for my own unique products & strive to build a name for my young up and coming brand. With great sincerity, thank you!

    I purchased the bareback pad to help with my balance during riding. This is by far, the most comfortable bareback pad I have ever sat on. I didn’t feel a need to shift my weight off balance to get comfortable, and never felt like I was hurting or making my horse feel uncomfortable. We had a loved ride and I can’t wait to use this pad again. Excellent purchase!

    This bareback pad is perfect. I finally have the comfortable ride and excellent contact with my horse that I desired. I can also add that my horse moves more freely! I have recommended this product to many of my riding friends.

    I ride a couple of horses bareback–one who is 28 with a prominent spine and one who is very round. I use a thick orthopedic pad as well with the older horse, but it was causing trouble with a standard bareback pad without wither relief. When riding the round mare with a regular bareback pad I would be sitting on the front edge of the pad (usually as it slid off the side!) within a few minutes of mounting. With the ThinLine’s shaped wither and correct girth placement (and breastcollar attachment!) I have a great bareback pad that MY sensitive back agrees with that stays PUT on both horses! Love it!

    My 18 hand Friesian has rather tall withers, and finding a bareback pad that would fit him properly was a journey of six years. Everything else we tried failed miserably to give us a good ride, until I found this pad at a local saddlery last fall. Not only is it comfortable for my horse and myself, but it fits other horses beautifully as well. When I walk up to my horse with this pad in my hands, he responds happily, because it is one of our favorite things to do together.

    Finally got to try my new pad on my 16.3 hand, high-withered mare. I. LOVE. IT. I’ve been riding bareback since Day One, but found it about impossible with this horse due to the prominence of her withers. This pad was exactly what I wanted, providing comfort for both of us! It maintains the bareback feel that I’d hoped for. Now I have another option for enjoying my mare for a quick or informal hack other than saddling up. I’m very pleased with this, my first Thin Line purchase.

    I absolutely love my Thinline bareback pad! I’ve used another type of pad but I felt like I was slipping– not with this one though! It provides a nice grip while riding bareback. More importantly, though, is that I feel good about riding my horse bareback with the shock absorption to help my mare’s back while I ride. 🙂

    Good weight distribution. Does not perform well in heat and hills, slips all over the place on a yoked athlete of a horse. Would be perfect if the girth attachment didn’t direct pressure across the withers and recommend a re-design with wool felt bottom and better placement of girth attachment.

    Hands down the best bareback pad around. Usually to get comfort on a high withered horse you need thick fluffiness, which sacrifices security and stability. With my Thinline pad, I’m completely comfortable on my shark-finned OTTB, and secure feeling enough to jump over 3′ courses!

    Best bareback pad ever. As a youth, 11-18 I rode in various bareback pads and they all were awful. If I had this product when I was a kid I would never have ridden in a saddle-probably…. Now 30+ years later I bought this pad to teach my daughter how to ride independently and have been thrilled at the comfort. I am riding my upper level dressage horse with this and my back doesn’t hurt, my horse is more responsive, and it’s a win win all around. 🙂

    Most useful bareback pad I’ve ever had. It doesn’t slip, it doesn’t rub and has a good amount of grip. Thanks for making such a great product.

    Just have to say, I ordered my thinline 2 days ago and have to comment on just how impressed I am with the speed at which it arrived. As I have not used it yet, it JUST arrived in the mail and the weather is doing it’s bit to prevent an immediate usage, it looks, feels and has just the right elements of substance and stick that I know I am going to love it! Will circle back around with a review after having the benefit of actually riding on it. Thanks Thinline!

    Worth every penny! When I was a kid 30-odd years ago, I had a bareback pad for my pony. It was hideously slippery and unstable, and I’m probably very lucky my pony was fairly low to the ground. I usually forewent the pad for plain old bareback. Fast-forward to now ~ I have a slightly zippy, barrel-shaped half-Arab with no withers to speak of. I still enjoy riding bareback, but the ground is a lot harder than it used to be, and further away than it was on that pony. After reading the reviews here, I decided to give the Thinline bareback pad a go. We both LOVE it! My gelding is happier without my tailbones digging into him, not to mention I don’t have to keep a death-grip with my thighs all the time. Given his roundness, I appreciate the solid D-rings that allow easy attachment of a breastcollar. Combined with the grippy pad underside, that has kept me and the pad firmly in place even during a couple of dramatic spooks and startles. I also tried the pad on one of my other half-Arabs – a much taller, leggier, leaner guy with pronounced withers. He seemed to go comfortably in it as well. Even though he’s never actually been ridden bareback before, he accepted the pad after only a few hesitant steps and walked right off. Without the pad, I’d never have tried to ride him bareback – it wouldn’t be comfortable for either of us!

If I were to ride my horse in the sea with this pad and it got wet with saltwater, how would you recommend cleaning it? Can I put it in the washing machine?Back to product

  1. Thanks for your question! This pad is so easy to maintain! Simply hose off thoroughly on both sides of pad and hang to dry in the shade. Machine washing is not recommended.
