As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Top Manufacturers Join to Develop the “Ultimate Saddle Pad”

A joint effort of ThinLine® and Back on Track® has resulted in the Contender II Saddle Pad which is undeniably the most technically advanced saddle pad available in the world. The new shimable (shims sold separately) saddle pad delivers therapeutic thermal heat from the Back on Track fabric combined with the renowned shock absorbing properties made famous by ThinLine.

The technologically advanced Contender II Saddle Pad from ThinLine and Back On Track is available for Dressage and Jumping. ThinLine is very well known for their lightweight shock absorbing saddle pads.

The Ultra ThinLine is a popular item and the same technology is utilized in the Contender II saddle pad. Many top riders have ridden in the traditional Ultra ThinLine for years to absorb shock, distribute weight and stabilize the saddle by using a wonderful no-slip impact technology. The shock absorption is designed to help horses and riders reduce back pain. In addition top riders in a number of disciplines depend on Back on Track products to maintain their horses in the best condition possible. Back on Track products are made from a one-of-a-kind fabric that blends ceramic powder into polyester threads. The result is the horse’s body heat is reflected back in the form of a soothing thermal infrared ray that increases circulation. For horses, Back on Track manufactures a number of products including stable blankets, hock boots, saddle pads, and leg wraps. Each product has the ability to help reduce muscle soreness, inflammation, and stiffness. Back on Track products are recommended for both the treatment and prevention of stress related injuries.

Sizing It Up

Dressage Pads should fit most saddles up to 18.5" measures 22" spine and 21" drop at the center of the spine

All Purpose Pads should fit most saddles up to 18.5" measures 22" along the spine and 19.5" drop at the center of the spine

Back on Track/ThinLine Contender II Saddle Pad is rated 4.673469387755102 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok pad This pad is very heavy and it cracked across the top, over where the writing is, on the rubber material. I have had it around 6 months and use it 2 hours per week. So, for the price I don't think the quality is good. It also collects and imbeds hair like no other pad. Thick clumps accumulate and it is very difficult to keep clean. I don't expect pads to be spotless but I think the heavy material is conducive to hair buildup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing combination product I bought this when Smart Pak was offering additional savings because they never go on sale. Love back on track products, especially the saddle pads and combining it with the thin line keeps my saddle right where I put it! White for shows...black for training!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it Have been using the Back on Track saddle pad with a Thin Line half pad. This is so much better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I Have an older model. This one has good wither relief plus non slip thinline feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoa! I Love this Pad! I was just hoping that this pad might, over time, help my guy's back to be a little less sore. I never would have expected to feel such a huge difference, from the very first trot step. My Thoroughbred's bouncy trot was so much easier to sit, even with the stormy weather making him tense and spooky. I could even feel a major increase in throughness at the walk! I can't wait to try this pad on every other horse I ride.
