To improve balance, and responsiveness, and create sounder horses, try ThinLine.


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…

  • Better shock absorption – The thin, Pro-Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad provides more shock absorption than a 2-inch thick felt pad.
  • Eliminates pressure points – The pad is soft and flexible, allowing it to fit neatly and mold comfortably against your horses’ natural conformation.
  • Less Material allows you to feel your mount
  • Less Movement without the “dead” feel of thick pads and gel pads.

For the horse.

This Pro-Tech saddle pad has a wither-relief cutout which is best for moderate to low or mutton withered horses and a spine-free channel, further reducing the chance of pressure points.  This thin pad frees up more room for narrow or snug-fitting saddles and improves the comfort of horses even with saddles that are perfectly fitted. The ThinLine also ventilates allowing excess heat to move out from under the saddle.  Most important, to your horse, is how this pad creates stability.  Stability creates freedom.

For the rider.

This Western felt premium 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. This means that 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. And this same shock absorption benefit is enjoyed by your horse as well.

With a reduced movement of your seat, your balance is easier to keep, helping you stay with your horse, even during quick stops and starts. You sit quieter, and he responds with relaxed, softback, and freer strides.

Shimming for protection and saddle fit:

Underneath the ThinLine layer is a pocket to insert shims. If you need help with minor saddle fit adjustments, purchase this Western felt premium saddle pad. Use it alone or add shims. Either way, your saddle will fit better and your horse will use his back better and stay sounder longer.  Shims are the same amazing ThinLine material that is sewn onto your pad.

    Thanks for your question! The wool felt is 1/4" thick and the ThinLine panels are 3/16" thick, so the total thickness under your saddle is just under 1/2".
