ThinLine Trifecta Cotton Half Pad

This is a closeout item and all sales are final. 

What is ThinLine?

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

Where is the ThinLine?

It is sewn onto the panel of our cotton Trifecta Half Pad.

“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.

  •  Ultimate protection for both the horse and rider’s backs.
  •  Reduces rider movement and prevents saddle slip.
  •  Contoured spine free channel for comfort.
  •  95%  shock absorption.
  •  Breathable to release heat and moisture.
  •  Shimmable for customized saddle fit.
  •  Easy maintenance and long-lasting performance.
  •  Low profile correction saddle pad, measuring less than 1/2″ thick, allows for close communication and feel.
Available in White, Black, and Dark Brown.

    Love this pad! I use it every time I ride, even though I have a brand new saddle. It just adds that extra layer of protection and comfort. It’s well made and attractive. I have other ThinLine products as well. I’m a big fan!

    I use this pad every ride, on every horse! It is so important to care for your horse in every way possible, and this is such a simple, effective way to ensure your horse’s back is comfortable!

    Emily Patricia: I use a thin line pad for my horse and I couldn’t be happier with it! His performance has been amazing and your pads are the best thing ever!☺️

    Use this pad every ride. Currently I have been through a number of horses looking for a suitable lease situation. I have been able to use the shims to fix minor fit issues with my saddle and the horses seem quite happy. As the current horse has poor topline development, the pad helps him to accept weight on his back and lift, instead of hollowing away.
    These pads are sturdy (had mine for years and use it everyday) and wash really well.

    My horses are so much more
    comfortable in their thinline than with any other pad. You can certainly tell a difference in their demeanor and their performance. I use this with every horse that I ride and it’s easy to add shims to for correcting saddle fit. I’ve had it for years and there are no signs of wear and it’s super easy to clean. I will never use another half pad!

    This is an amazing pad! I have it in white which I use everyday and when showing. This pad gives me peace of mind. I know when my horse and I are galloping on the cross country course her back is supported and protected. This pad also helps me to feel more stable in my position. I have had this pad for about three years. Since I have the pad in white, it gets dirty but with a little soap and elbow grease it looks like new! This is the best pad that I use on both of my horses. I love that it has shims but I that I can use it without the shims as well!

    After hearing nothing but good things about Thinline products from my saddle fitter, I purchased the Cotton Trifecta Half Pad. My extremely sensitive mare and I both LOVE it! The feel, pressure dissipation and breathability of this pad is outstanding and it’s easy to use and clean. My old pads simply don’t compare and I’m looking to utilize Thinline products in my western riding and carriage driving gear in the future as well. Fabulous product!

Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A Hi and thank you for your question! The measurements across the rear of the pads are as follows: Small 14.5" Medium 16"
  2. A Hi and thank you for your question! The shock absorption will be the same whether it's over or under another pad. Most riders prefer to use it over another pad in order to keep it cleaner. Also, this half pad has a generous rise at the wither and you may find that unless your base pad has a similar topline profile, the fit can be awkward if it's layered on top of the half pad.
  3. A Thank you for your question! The Ultra ThinLine panels on the pads offer many wonderful benefits, being non-slip is one. The half pads are all discipline neutral and are a great fit for both jumping and dressage saddles. The small size is perfect for 16 1/2" saddles.
  4. A Thank you for your question! A lot of treeless riders have great success with ThinLine pads because they get the lift they need and the close contact they want. We also offer a full length Booster Shim which provides even more lift along the topline. Selecting a pad style is usually based on the measurements of your particular saddle. Most riders use a square or baby pad underneath their half pad in order to keep the half pad and the saddle clean. It isn't strictly necessary, but often the under pad is easier to throw in the wash than the half pad. In this case, the Trifecta Cotton Half pad is easy to care for and can be cleaned in the washing machine as well.
  5. A Thanks for your feedback! Please give us a call or email and we'll be happy to help!
  6. A Thanks for your question! This particular pad is designed to be used under most English saddles and on top of  another pad. For longer, strenuous trail rides in your specific saddles, our Basic Western ThinLine pad is a great starting point. You may also want to consider one of our all-in-one pads, like the Western Color Work Pads Cordura or the Full Sheepskin Western Correction Pad. The all-in-one makes tacking up easier and eliminates the pad shifting that sometimes occurs when using two pads. We also make pads designed just for endurance saddles. Feel free to give us a call if you need further help choosing a pad!
