Shock-absorbing support plus a mesh spine.

Perfect Fit Pad – English

The ThinLine Perfect Fit Pad – English is the ultimate upgrade to our best-selling basic half pads.

This pad features either ThinLine or ThinLine+ material, connected by a breathable, flexible mesh spine band. The spine band creates better wither and gullet clearance while keeping the shock-absorbing support right where it’s needed.

Intentionally created for well-fitting saddles, neither of these pads will alter custom fit; they will enhance it by providing riders with the best protection. The ThinLine Perfect Fit Pad – English, works beautifully with dressage saddles and jumping saddles alike.

Purposefully, this pad is not shimmable.

    The name could not be more accurate. Purchased for use with my new saddle, which was custom made for my mare. Customer service was super responsive and very helpful in identifying which version (ThinLine or ThinLine+) was appropriate based on our training program. My saddle fitter was also very pleased and happy the pad does not interfere with the saddle fit. Thanks for a great product!

    I got super lucky with this one, it was like the last one available in stock and I am so so glad I snapped it up. I recently bought a Voltaire fitted to my horse, with a history of a sensitive back, I do my best to keep him protected and comfortable. I am 5’11” and not the lightest person on earth and I am quite contentious of the fact that my horse works hard and I want to keep him as comfortable as possible. With the acquisition of a custom fitting saddle I knew that my best bet was to get the most amount of protection for the slimmest design. After hearing some rave reviews about the classic half pad from Thinline, at the release of the Perfect Fit one I knew that I had to try it!

    I went with the Thinline+ so it had a bit extra in it and it could not be more perfect! It looks great, practically seamless, even on a white saddle pad, the black half pad looks very professional and I have no issues keeping it clean. The fit of my saddle is great and this saddle pad has been super. I was tentative to switch as the Ogilvy Gummy Half Pad has been great for my horse but this great for everyday schooling and I am sure when we step into the show ring, it will look fabulous. My horse is comfortable and has been more willing to stretch down under saddle and relax. Even if you are unsure, I would say go for it as long as your saddle fits well and doesn’t need any extra fitting assistance. Overall, I am incredibly happy with this product and I can easily see why these sell out so fast!

    Hi Chloe, thanks for your question!

    Ultimately both thicknesses will give you great ThinLine shock absorption, comfort, and protection. 

    For horses in heavy, higher impact work, or horses with greener riders, we recommend the ThinLine+ thickness.

    For horses in lighter work, or for higher level riders looking for the closest connection in disciplines like dressage, we recommend the ThinLine thickness.
