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.

I read what is best for 17" and 18" saddles but what about 17.5" CWD? Go smaller or bigger? Can I return/ exchange if I need to go the other size? Thank you!

All ThinLine pads come with a 30 day return/exchange period, so it's easy to make sure that you have what you need! The medium Perfect Fit Pad fits most 17"-17.5" saddles. The large Perfect Fit Pad works for most 18"+ saddles. Saddle shape and panels can vary, so to be certain about the best fit, you can measure your saddle's "footprint" and compare to the measurements below.

Thank you for your question!
The ThinLine foam is really nice against the horse- it is nonslip, super soft, easy to clean, antimicrobial, and antifungal.
We usually recommend using the Perfect Fit pad with another pad underneath, but it can also be used directly against your horse.
When using without a base pad, it may not last as long due to prolonged contact with sweat, dirt, etc.
Is this the same material as the basic pad and therefore prone to cracking like mine did after a year?

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.
