Why We Love This

ThinLine guarantees you will sit better riding in one of our most popular pads.

Ultra ThinLine noticeably reduces lower back and thigh movement, allowing the rider to sit gaits with less effort and achieve a more stable position in the saddle. The result is a quieter ride with increased effectiveness of the seat and increased communication with the horse through a closer contact feel. Ultra ThinLine is endorsed by spinal surgeons for riders with sore backs and endorsed by top professionals and competitors for better performance both for the horse and the rider.

The contour pad will also greatly reduce all saddle slip problems.

    How to Use:

    ThinLine recommends basic ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads be used between your saddle and regular saddle pad. Most customers use cotton or wool pads underneath. While you can use ThinLine pads directly on the horses back the lifespan of the pad may be shortened and it voids the warranty. All pads with felt or cotton backing are made to be used alone. Some ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads may come with a crease where the pad has been folded to be bagged and shipped. These creases will disappear when warmed to body temperature (1-2 rides). All ThinLine products can be cleaned/washed using the ThinLine Cleaner or the ThinLine Wipes.

    ThinLine and Ultra ThinLine:

    Can be wiped clean (we like baby wipes), hosed off, soaked, bleached, or even machine washed (some machines may catch tm, so front loader is best) in cold water. Mild soaps and detergents can be used, but please do not put them in the dryer! Hang to dry (which really isn’t necessary either as ThinLine doesn’t absorb water.) What to watch out for: keep your ThinLine away from chemicals such as Show Sheen.

      ThinLine Contour Pad is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for My saddle fits my horse well, but I wanted something to absorb shock as well as keep the saddle in place (my mare is very round and saddles tend to shift). This thing is basically a rubber mat — maybe an 1/8” thick (so doesn’t add any extra bulk or alter saddle fit) and grippy on one side. Don’t know why it is so expensive, but the thing seems like it could survive nuclear fallout and serves it’s purposes, so I’m ok with that.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised My daughter's mare recently became very cranky at the canter- ears pinned and lots of kicking out. Her trainer suggested we try a new pad setup, as it looked like she was uncomfortable. We borrowed a $300ish memory foam pad to try first and it made no difference. After doing some online research, and seeing how positive the reviews were for this pad, I decided to give it a try. I was super skeptical when I opened the package. This pad basically has the consistency of a mud flap. There's really nothing to it at all. But day one, our mare was a completely different horse. No tantrums, no ear pinning, nothing. Same the next day and the next. A week later and she hasn't complained at all. I'm sold!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced - not "contoured" This pad does do what it is supposed to. Great shock absorber, helps encourage softness, lifting of the back, etc. However, all it is is a thin piece of foam that is sloppily cut and it is not "contoured" to a horses back. It's probably the cheapest thing to make, yet since we're equestrians, it costs $120. The top line of the pad is very straight and takes quite a bit of manipulating when putting it on to make sure it isn't putting pressure on the wither or the spine. Especially since most horses have a curve to their back. I give it 4 stars as it does do everything it promises to do and it does not interfere with the fit of the saddle. I am waiting for someone to release a comparable product for $30.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad for a great prioce I bought this pad on sale to use with the new saddle I just bought. I've used it once under a bareback pad, and once for the first ride in the new saddle. My horse seemed very happy with it. I haven't used the saddle without it and see no reason to do so, but it certainly seemed to make things more comfortable under the bareback pad.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from So thin and great contact with my horse! I was using one of Thinline's Trifecta pads and then read about this one. I felt the Trifecta was a bit too much pad under the saddle but wanted a bit of cushion for both my horse and my back. I've only used this twice but what a difference in feel! My horse usually is a little cold backed and will prance a bit when I first get on. She's been just fine with this pad, no prancing at all. She's very seat sensitive and this pad really makes a big difference in having that connection. I can really feel the difference in contact. I have an 18" saddle and the regular fits fine. I know some saddles are bigger than others and mine is probably a small 18". I have a little bit of extra pad on either end of my saddle. They do make a larger one that you can order directly from Thinline if you need it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves my back! I bought the pad not long ago. So far it has been fantastic for saving my back. I have a comfortable horse to ride, but I am no spring chicken. The pad has made a big difference. I can only assume my mare feels the same way.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bulky I haven't had this for too long but I do have another thinline half pad and I will say they live up to their reputation. I use this particular pad for dressage. I like knowing that the material will absorb quite a bit of shock both from me and my horse. This has helped me sir the trot better and has allowed me to keep a better connection with my seat bones.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this pad. I bought this pad a month a go and both my horse and I markedly more comfortable when we ride.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay, just not worth the money I would like this pad a lot more if it was shaped differently. Because it's straight across the back, it creates a lot of pressure over the withers. It's also an odd shape down the sides. My Wintec AP 2000 saddle goes over the edges of the pad in the front. I've thought cutting a slit over the withers to provide some relief, but I'm afraid it would continue to tear. Overall, it was a disappointing purchase.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like it says it will! I have tried this pad on two horses - one a TB, the other a WB. With both, I find it genuinely reduces/absorbs the concussion of our ride. It makes the ride softer for both the horse and the rider. The shape is unorthodox, but doesn't show if you use a same-color shaped or square pad. It does smell peculiar, but I'm either getting used to it, or it's fading over time. The only negative is its sizing. It is sized for a saddle in the under 17" range, so it doesn't sit completely under my 18" saddle when placed correctly. I imagine this reduces its effectiveness. SmartPak's price is better than the manufacturer's and because of SP's shipping, is less costly than SP's competitors.
