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'!).

Why We Love This

ThinLine pads simultaneously provide exceptional benefits for both horse and rider backs!

    ThinLine Contour Pad is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I refuse to ride without a Thinline pad - they make such a difference for the horse and rider! My horse is happier and I find the ride to be smoother. Great product!! I'd recommend to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad I love this pad. It is so thin but does sooo much. I love not having all of the bulk I had with other pads. My thoroughbred has high withers so before I had to use thick pads but now with the thinline contour pad all I need with it is a regular saddle pad. It seems to help his saddle fit better. He doesn't seem to be bothered when I bounce a little more than I should (which occasionally happens :/) and since there is not as much bulk I have a better feel of his movements (if that makes sense), and sooo easy to clean. Thank you Thinline and Smartpak for making all these products available!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, thin pad I love how thin this pad is. It does not add any bulk at all under your saddle, and still gives your horse plenty of support. My saddle is 17", and the pad fits it perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helped My Horse My horse has a rather short, wide back and was experiencing some back soreness. I know my saddle doesn't fit perfectly, but being a college student on a budget I opted for this instead of a new saddle in hopes that it might buy me a little time. Because my guy's back is rather wide, I was looking for something that could provide the comfort he needed without adding a bunch of bulk underneath the saddle. I was excited to try it after reading all of the positive reviews, but was still a little skeptical that it would do everything the manufacturer claimed it would. I could tell a difference after the very first ride! My horse usually takes around 15 to 20 min to start coming through his back and swinging from behind, but he was good to go after about 5 minutes of warmup. I've continued to see improvement with each ride. He is also more consistently on the aids when we are using this pad. After our ride yesterday, I ran my fingers down his back, and his soreness seems dramatically reduced. Hopefully it will continue to get better the longer we use this pad. I haven't really seen any improvement as far as my position or comfort in the saddle goes, but that isn't really something I was having issues with. The pad seems well made and durable. I ordered it black and it sits discreetly underneath my 17.5 dressage and jumping saddles. I have a friend that says she's had her Thinline for about 10 years and it is still going strong. I'll definitely continue to use this pad with my horse. Love Thinline!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from took me awhile to warm up to this Just fits under my saddle 17.5 neidersuss. Slides if girth isn't pretty tight. I like the padding this pad provides while still being thin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help with saddle fit Nice pad - wish it had better relief through the withers as my mare has really high withers. Seems like it will last, but I've only been using it a few weeks. Recommended by chiro to help with cushioning on a saddle that is in need of adjustment - mare does seem much more comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thicker than the "Ultra" I have a TB who is very picky about saddle fit. He is growing and also putting on muscle and changing his topline. He outgrew his saddle from 8 months ago. One of my other saddles was close, but not quite right. I have a Thinline Ultra pad that is a few years old and has held up well. Not quite enough for my guy. After research, it turns out that the "Ultra" is to be used under a well fitting saddle. The origional is thicker (3/8th" vs 1/4") and designed to help saddle fit and to be used with higher impact activities such as jumping.This pad has helped the fit. The contour pad gives good coverage. It would be nice if it was designed to have wither relief, but it molds OK. My TB is much happier. This pad is a good addition to my collection. Overall, more useful than the Ultra.
