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 use ThinLine?
  • Riders Sit Better - Better Performance
  • Horses use their back better - all horses go better in ThinLine

    ThinLine Shims for Contender II Saddle Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fix! these shimes perfectly fit the gaps created from my horse's high withers. The saddle is now properly balanced and no longer sloping forward (which would shut her down) and now she is very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOt Love It I bought a couple of month ago & I love the comfort it provides for my horse & myself I love BOT pads they are the only ones I use for my horse the added comfort of the thin line technology just made it better

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love shimmable Thinlines! I love how Thinlines are shimmable--these fit great and are easy to take in and out. So great for customization!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good material, not too squishy I bought these for another shimable pad I have, I had to cut them to the right size but they are better than the shims that came with that pad!
    Date published: 2015-05-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought the shims for extra padding in my super sensitive TB, not to adjust the saddle (it fits him perfectly). The Contender II pad does have padding, but it needed a little extra. These shims did the trick. All of his back pain is gone!
