What makes ThinLine so different?
ThinLine saddle pads are made with a shock-absorbing, breathable foam that molds to the horse, creates better saddle fit, and enhances riding. ThinLine creates harmony between rider and horse. It is easy to care for and has impressive longevity. ThinLine products have a money back guarantee that you and your horse will see improved performance and communication. ThinLine makes both rider and horse more comfortable resulting in greater happiness and better performance.
What are the advantages of ThinLine over simple saddle pads/cloths?
Simple saddle pads/cloths are designed to keep the saddle clean and provide a bit of fashion. Other shock absorbing products work on a compression basis: when you apply weight or pressure they compresses and at that moment they are not functional. As the weight is relieved non-compression foams release, or spring open. In the case of riding this effect actually moves the rider further from the horse. Gel moves away from pressure points, generates heat and shifts a great deal, reducing the stability and sense of security for both horse and rider.
ThinLine works when under the weight of a rider or saddle. Does not move and greatly reduces the feel of sudden impact allowing you to whisper to your horse with your seat.
My ThinLine pad is a little too big for my saddle, can I cut it down?
If it is a basic pad (made of just the ThinLine foam), then the answer is yes! Use a utility knife (box cutter) or a pair of scissors. Make rounded cuts. No “V” shapes- they will tear. Keep in mind however, we do not warranty pads that have been modified if they tear at a point caused by cutting.
In which cases should (or could) a ThinLine pad be used?
There is a ThinLine saddle pad for every equestrian discipline. Because consumers want either very little padding or thick padding we provide two thicknesses.
