Front, Bridging or Rear English Shims. Your shims may look different than the ones pictured.

Inserts have been carefully designed by Master Saddlers. They are custom cut specifically for each pad with a tapered edge to ensure you will never have a pressure point. Our exclusive foam makes saddles fit better, and horses more comfortable.

Inserts stay put without shifting and you may stack up to three sets. We do not divide the pocket, allowing you or your saddle fitter to place the inserts precisely where your horse needs it.

If you find you no longer need inserts, just remove them and keep all the great benefits of your ThinLine Pad!

We have a list of saddle fitters on our dealer page if you would like to consult with a specialist.

Colors: ThinLinePlus+ (1/4″) shims are available in black only.  ThinLine (3/16″) shims may arrive in black, brown or white. Saddle shims cannot be seen inside your pad, so color is not an issue.

Please note: Bridging Shims for Swayback – If your saddle is bridging, you are missing contact in the middle of the horse’s back and there is too much contact at both the wither and the cantle. When using bridging shims, we recommend you start slowly. Use only one or two at a time. You will discover your horse will begin to lift their top line and develop more muscle with ThinLine. Once the muscle is developed it is often possible to remove one or all of the saddle shims. Good news: you keep your ThinLine pad and horses continue to use their backs correctly.


Selecting Shims

All shimmable pads begin with  ThinLine (3/16″, the thinnest we make) over a base pad. Each saddle pad has a pocket beneath the  ThineLine to place optional shims for fine tuning saddle fit.

The only pads without the ability to shim, are the single sheets of ThinLine foam called Basic Pads.

We offer two different shim thickness choices –  ThinLine,&ThinLine+Plus.

  • Saddle Fitting Shims are available in the two thickness of ThinLine foam-ThinLine and ThinLine+Plus, to adjust (lift) the saddle in one of three areas; front, bridging, cantle (rear lift).
  • – Each pad has a custom designed shim for a perfect fit, so be sure to select the correct pad when ordering your shims.
