What is ThinLine?
ThinLine is a thin, shock-absorbing non-slip breathable foam.
Endorsed by surgeons, master saddlers, riders, and veterinarians.
Where is the ThinLine?
It is sewn onto the panel of all our saddle pads.
If you desire to be a better-balanced rider with a more responsive, sounder horse, try ThinLine.
So how does a 3/16” thick pad of ThinLine stitched onto a 1/2” thick wool felt pad make you a better-balanced rider and your horse more responsive and sounder? In a few ways…
The thin, Pro-Tech Felt Saddle Pad provides more shock absorption than a 2-inch thick felt pad. ThinLine eliminates pressure points. The needled wool felt pad is soft and flexible, allowing it to fit neatly and comfortably against your horses’ natural confirmation. Without the extra movement and “dead” feel of thick pads and gel pads between you and your horse, you can better feel each other.
For the Horse
This felt saddle pad has a wither-relief cutout which is best for moderate to low or mutton withered horses, and a mesh spineband that allows for optimal airflow and further reduces the chance of pressure points. Comfort for the horse is improved even with saddles that are perfectly fitted. The ThinLine also ventilates, across the pad, allowing excess heat to move out from under the saddle. Most importantly, to your horse is how these pads create stability. Stability creates freedom.
For the Rider
The Western Pro-Tech horse saddle pad’s slim design puts you in closer contact with your horse, so your leg can easily drape, giving you a seamless feel of his sides. You’ll notice his back moving more, but with the extraordinary shock absorption of ThinLine, you will be moving in unison with your mount. The ThinLine layer sewn onto the pad has a 95% shock absorption rate that spreads impact LATERALLY along the pad. The motion you feel under you as you ride is absorbed by the ThinLine and transferred ACROSS the pad instead of UP into your spine. This shock absorption benefit is being enjoyed by your horse as well.
With the reduced seat movement, your balance is easier to keep, so “staying” with your horse, even during quick stops and starts, becomes second nature. You sit quieter, and he responds with relaxed, softback, and freer strides.
The Pro-Tech is also a Pocket Correction Pad
Full saddle-fitting shims are available when you select your pad size. These may be used as-is to double your protection or trimmed into pairs of front, bridging, and rear shims to customize your saddle fit.
How do I know ThinLine is delivering the comfort and protection my horse needs?
Once you receive your Western felt saddle pad, ride in it for at least a week. At first, you may simply notice things like; “my horse was great today, my seat and aids were soft and effective”, great job! you are on your way. You will see daily, subtle improvement in the beginning. How to check out your pad’s effectiveness. After at least a week of daily riding, begin your warm-up with the ThinLine. After the warm-up, remove the ThinLine and ride. This is when you will see just how much your horse is loving his felt saddle pad.

Felt Saddle Pad Care Instructions
Our felt saddle pads have a high percentage of wool content. To avoid shrinkage, do not use hot water to clean, or heat to dry. Occasionally brush your pad with a curry brush. This will dislodge hair, dirt, and sweat to prolong the usefulness of your pad. Wool pads can be washed by scrubbing the dirty spots with a cloth or sponge, using cold water and a small amount of mild liquid wool-washing soap (We recommend EZ All). Hose all the soap off with clean water and allow the pad to air dry in a well-ventilated area. As you’re hosing, be sure to direct the spay from the center outward toward the edges, so that dirt, sweat, and hair is moved off of the pad and instead of being pushed into the pad.
