    Western Cotton Liner Pad

ThinLine Saddle pads create a more comfortable and closer connection with your horse by reducing rider movement and protecting horses’ backs in a super-thin pad.

The western cotton liner pad is breathable, shimmable, and offers top-of-the-line shock absorption and protection. For perfect saddle fit, you can add up to 3 layers of shims in the pocket of this ThinLine pad. The shims can be placed exactly where they are needed and can be left in the pad when washing. This pad features high-quality cotton that is easy to care for and will last for years to come!

What is ThinLine?

ThinLine is a thin, shock-absorbing non-slip breathable foam.

Where is the ThinLine?

ThinLine material is sewn onto the panel of our saddle pads. Here you can see the ThinLine foam on top of a western cotton liner pad. Available in two square sizes and a rounded skirt version.

 


ThinLine is endorsed by back surgeons, master saddlers & veterinarians.


Saddle Fitting with the Western Non-Slip Saddle Pad Liner.

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 the front, bridging, and rear shims to customize your saddle fit.

Not all riders need shims for their pad. Many minor saddle fit issues will be solved with just the ThinLine pad alone.  If you are trying to solve issues such as bridging, filling in behind high withers, or balancing the saddle, to name just a few, ThinLine shims will fix those issues while also providing additional protection.  The Cotton Western Liner is one of our thinnest pads.

How do I know ThinLine is delivering the comfort and protection my horse needs?

Once you receive your ThinLine 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 improvement. But, this can be a bit subtle in the beginning.  How to check out your pad’s effectiveness.  After at least a week of riding daily, begin your warm-up with the ThinLine.  Once you are warmed up, remove the ThinLine and ride.  This is when you will see just how much your horse is loving their breathable cotton saddle pad.

Machine wash cold in front loading washer. Turn the ThinLine to the inside. Spin to remove excess water. Hang to dry naturally with no heat source, including sun. Using a fan speeds the drying process. If you have a white pad, you may use bleach products such as soft scrub on the ThinLine material as well as using a little bleach in the wash cycle. All pads come with a one-year full replacement warranty when following our care instructions. When care instructions are followed, our cotton pads are proving to have an expected longevity of 7-8 years.

  1. Elaine

    Perfect fit. Always in the right place. Happy horse. Washes and washes and washes. Best pad out there

  2. Trish

    I have the Cordura Fleece Western Pad. It fits well. My horse’s movement in his back is looser and freer. I highly recommend it.

  3. Elaine Castelao (verified owner)

    “I’m very happy to report that after a week of riding 10+ to 20+ miles a day the ThinLine pad kept our horses very happy. I was very nervous about making this purchase at first but I’ve have had the original pad for a long long time and know they work. I have a very mutton withered mare and she had no sore places this week! Thanks, The Smiths.” – Amanda Maschmeyer Smith.

    Julie O’Brien decided to give the ThinLine Western Cotton Liner Pad a try and was very glad she did. Julie’s AQHA mare, Tangaray not only shaved a second off her time but Julie also took home a nice paycheck. Julie credits the ThinLine pad with helping her mare.

    Amber Everson: My horse seems to love the one I bought. It has a nice grip to it and seems to cushion well.

  6. Elaine Castelao (verified owner)

    Julie O’Brien: Got one for Christmas. I can feel my horse move! Will be running barrels tomorrow in it.

    Lisa Haaparanta I have been using mine for the last few weeks on my 5 yr old mare. I absolutely LOVE it!!! She’s sensitive but is so comfortable with the pad that training is progressing quite smoothly. I’ve used it on my 10yr old AQHA mare who is arthritic through her shoulders and she is so free in the shoulders when I use it she may just be able to head back to the show pen again!! Will definitely be buying another!!

    I was sold on purchasing a Thinline pad thanks to YouTube video reviews regarding their impact protection for both horse and rider. I emailed Thinline for advice because I wasn’t sure which design would be best for my mule’s needs. Their employee Lisa Beam was both friendly and helpful. I ended up selecting this pad based on her recommendation and am extremely pleased with this design. It’s easy to care for, helps with my saddle fit, and supports my mule’s back while allowing for close contact. Very nice to feel more close, considering my previous, thicker pad was supportive but had less feel. Will be a repeat customer for sure!

  9. Kim Depp

    I’m a Western Dressage rider and needed a thin pad that would allow me close contact with my horses but protect their backs as well. I ride in a customized Western Dressage saddle with a drop rigging. Thin Line made me the medium Western Cotton modified with drop rigging leathers. The change in my horses way of moving has been amazing. Their scores have increased and the older 16 yr old QH mare finished 2016 as a High Point Champion for GA. Both horses finished in the top 50 Nationally.

  10. Cynthia

    I’m interested in the round barrel pad, but I’m not sure on what shims to order with it, and do they coast extra for each shim?

  11. Tamara

    I now own 2 Thinline pads, the latest being the Western Cotton Liner and my super sensitive mare LOVES these pads. They make such a difference in her freedom of movement and the breathability of this pad is the best I’ve found…where other pad materials tend to hold the heat in, the Thinline is so breathable it just doesn’t heat up. Wish there was a Canadian distributor for the western pads as I’d like another one!

  12. Leslie Godby

    Do you make a pad for Australian saddles?

    • Berit Brown

      Thanks for your question Leslie! Please check out our endurance and drop rigging pads. These cross over pads are great for a number of different saddle styles, including Australian saddles. We recommend checking the measurements to be sure it is the right fit for your particular saddle.

  13. Ann White

    I love my thinline liner! It keeps my pads clean and my horse comfortable! One of my favorite things it how easy it is to throw in the washer! I can keep it clean! I need two! One for each trailer.

  14. renee organek (verified owner)

    This is a great pad and it fits my horse with her saddle so well!

  15. Nicole

    Great saddle pad!!!! Works perfect as a liner or as a everyday pad.
    The pad shape will fit your horses back like a glove. The saddle pad is comfortable for my horse, but it stays in place, and will not slip.
    Shim system is easy to install and once set into place it will not move.
    Overall incredible product.
