ThinLine Contour Pad
The ThinLine Contour pad is the most versatile pad shape for all riding disciplines.
ThinLine keeps horses backs healthy, helps riders sit quietly and improves saddle fit.
Reduce Rider Movement * Protect Horses backs * Create Better Saddle Fit * Encourage horses to soften and engage faster * Non Slip-stops saddle movement *ThinLine protection for horse and rider without added bulk .
Longer and wider in the seat and flaps than the ThinLine Half Pad, the Contour Pads fit a wider variety of saddle shapes and sizes. With more protection underneath the stirrup bars for weight and pressure distribution, these pads are great for jumping, long hours in the saddle or young/sensitive horses. Round horses who have problems with saddles rolling side to side will benefit from the lateral non slip.
ThinLine+Plus or ThinLine?ThinLine (3/16″,4.8mm) is our thinnest shock-absorbing English horse saddle pad. Thoughtfully designed to protect both horse and rider’s backs ThinLine creates a soft, quiet, elastic connection. If your riding is not in a place where you can focus on nuances, you should likely start in a ThinLine. If you are a close contact rider, you will greatly appreciate ThinLine. This product reduces rider movement and helps horses balance and focus. It does not amplify the seat, it reduces “background noise” so the rider’s seat aids are clear. (Formerly Known as Ultra ThinLine)ThinLine+Plus (1/4″, 6.4mm) is thicker and designed for beginning riders, horses in high impact situations, or horses with sore backs. ThinLine+Plus 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.
