Synthetic Sheepskin Care Instructions
One of the great features of selecting synthetic fleece against your horse; you have incredible softness without the high maintenance of real sheepskin. So feel free to get sweaty and work hard! The ThinLine will be ventilating the heat from under your saddle.
This pad may be a bit large for your home washing machine, but it is machine washable with cold water. Use our SheepskinWash for best results. Or brush off daily. A simple hosing will do as well. Your pad comes with a full one year warranty.
A Thank you for your question! If the cotton version isn't listed as an option, that means that it's temporarily out of stock. Please give us a call at 888-401-9101 for an update on their availability. This pad has a 27" spine length and may be a bit too long for your saddle. Does the 22" measurement include the skirts?
A Thank you for your question! The cotton version is the recommended option for you. The cotton and the ThinLine panels allow for heat ventilation and the reduced thickness will help prevent saddle slip.
A Thank you for your question! Both the all-cotton and fleece lined styles of this pad may be washed. The care instructions recommend that they be washed in cold water with a mild soap, preferably by hand. They can also be washed in a large front loading machine with the Ultra ThinLine panels turned to the inside. Hang to dry out of the sun and away from heat sources.

A Thanks for your question! This pad is constructed of a quilted cotton base with fleece lining (about 3/4"), and has Ultra ThinLine panels (3/16") sewn across the top of the pad and at the bottom of the flap. In the areas covered in Ultra ThinLine, the measurement is just shy of 1", and is about 3/4" everywhere else.
A Thanks for your question! This pad is a great fit for treeless saddles due to its high wither profile and the Ultra ThinLine panels across the top of the pad. We also just introduced a new shim style, the Booster shim, that is a great addition to use with a treeless saddle. It provides the extra lift and cushioning along the full length of the pad that so many treeless saddle riders want for their horse. Be sure to check the measurements to be certain that this pad is the correct size for your particular saddle.
