Should you purchase a basic ThinLine pad instead of a shimmable ThinLine Pad?

You Have a Well-Fitting Saddle – that does not require shimming.

Price and Longevity – The ThinLine foam will remain functional for 7-10 years, depending on use. Basic pads will cost you less than $1.00 per month.

Versatility – Basic pads may be placed over any other saddle pad and may be used on multiple horses.

Maintenance – Basic performance foam saddle pads require no care or washing.

Half Pad or Contour Pad?

Half Pads offer a discrete amount of protection directly under your saddle.

Contour Pads add additional protection under the stirrup bar and will help control left-to-right saddle slip. ThinLine absorbs impact by moving it laterally along the horse and English saddle pad. Unless the price is a serious barrier, we suggest you choose the contour pad; the more ThinLine foam you have, the better it works.


ThinLine+ (1/4″, 6.4mm) is great for beginning riders, horses in high-impact situations, or horses with sore backs.

ThinLine+ is endorsed by Veterinarians, even for severe back problems such as kissing spine. It is the #1 choice of Equine Chiropractors and Massage Therapists.

The top choice for many great riders.  Kent Farrington rides every horse, every day in a ThinLine+Plus Contour pad, and has done so for more than a decade.

Rider Spinal Health:

Riding over a lifetime can take its toll on a rider’s spine. ThinLine can drastically reduce the aches and pains that come from time in the saddle by moving shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. Horses’ backs also benefit from the 95% shock absorption and from having a quieter ride in the saddle. ThinLine is the only saddle pad endorsed by Spinal Surgeons – See “The Riders Pain-Free Back” by Dr. James Warson.



  •  Two shapes – Half pad and Contour pad.
