We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    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!

    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shims helped saddle fit I purchased the Contender II saddle pad, and love that, but as my horse lost weight his saddle really sat too low on his back. These shims did the trick of raising the saddle back up off his back so I don't have to get a new one or reflock yet. He does warm up quicker with this pad and I think it makes him more comfortable.
