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'!).

    ThinLine Shims for Trifecta and Sheepskin Comfort Half Pads is rated 4.3462 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shims! Bought these for my Ultra Thinline Trifecta half pad for a mare with no muscle behind the shoulder. I read lots of reviews about them being hard to insert into the pad. I had no issues. Took maybe 10 seconds for each side and fit was perfect. My guess is that people ordered the wrong shims for their particular pad. My mare and I have been riding happy since!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love ability to shim half pad! Bought shims to add to my Ultra Thinline cotton half pad. After a little persuasion, I managed to get the shims into place ( takes time, patience, and nimble fingers). But it's absolutely worth the fuss! I can feel the difference of the slight adjustment to my saddle fit, and my TB seems pleased as well! Shims feel sturdy and durable. Very happy with the purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality These are the easiest shims to work with. They don't rip easily or crease. Make sure you order for the appropriate ThinLine pad as they have changed the length of the shims over the past 10 years. These are shorter than the earlier version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sims for Trifecta half pad Great sims that easily fit the pad. No bunching, struggling to get them properly placed and they stay put. Theses pads take away any pressure spots and did a great job leveling my saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from shimming it up! its much easier to balance a saddle when you have this item. easy to insert and 2 differenent sizes are available so you can choose exactly what you need. I would highly recommend these.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Um...not for the all cotton trifecta. Doing what I want them to, but these are the ones that fit the sheepskin comfort halfpad and the trifecta with sheepskin rolls. They are quite a bit smaller than the ones that fit the all cotton trifecta.Totally not clear from the description, but looking at the shims on Thinlines site, quite obvious.I'd send them back, but I've thrown out the packaging, AND I need the shims!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ummmmm... These were so HARD to get into the thinline half pad -- like holy moly I spent a good half hour trying to get them in. I wish the rear inserts were a little thicker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job!! I bought these shims to put in a thin line pad I use for starting young horses. The saddle balance for one of them was slightly down in front. The shims balanced the saddle just enough to accommodate the slightly different conformation of that young horse. I have one saddle that I use for starting youngsters so the shims help adjust the balance of the saddle for each one. This was recommended by my saddle fitter and it worked well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my fleeceworks sheepskin saddle pad! Very nice fit, as my other memory foam riser pad becomes hard in cold weather.These ones fit nicely into the slots provided.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shims I bought these within past month along with Thinline half pad. They are easy to use, fit well inside the pad and add just the right amount of padding. Nice quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! These shims are easy to use, easy to put in and take out, and make minor saddle fitting adjustments a breeze as they come in varied thicknesses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality, not Quantity As is everything from ThinLine, these are high-quality, precision cut to fit the ThinLine pads. They require quite an effort to get them in place within the pad, but once they are in, they are not going to move. They are also quite thin, to the point of being almost inconsequential. If you need a noticable lift, you may want to seach for other alternatives or purchase two sets of these, though getting one set into the pocket is quite a task, getting two sets in may require a Herculean effort.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought these inserts in size Medium to use in my Equine Comfort Products Comfort Fleece Correction Pad for additional lift in the front and they turned out to be perfect. They fit without needing to be trimmed and they are far more durable, effective and easy to insert and remove than the Equine Comfort Products brand inserts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thinline is the best! Have had our Thinline half pad for over a year and love it. I bought these shims to adda little extra padding for our new thoroghbred.
    Date published: 2013-03-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My trainer recommended the ThinLine for my second shimmable pad. I ordered the Trifecta pad without sheepskin so it's easier to wash. The new ThinLine Shims are awesome -- way better quality that the ECP shims.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy These fit right into my ThinLine half pad when we need a little extra to improve saddle fit. Great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight fit- but does the job I bought these shims to go with the Trifecta half pad. I ride in both a dressage saddle and a close contact hunter/jumper saddle. I am shopping for new saddles, but my saddle fitter suggested a half pad with shims for the dressage saddle and the same half pad without shims for the hunter/jumper saddle.Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get the shims in and out of the pad without damaging either the pad or the shims. They do seem to do the job and balance my dressage saddle, but it's a pain to take them out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference After discovering my horses saddle was probably lying on here withers, I realized that my Thinline Comfort Pad could accomodate inserts. It has made a world of difference in the way she moves. Her shoulders feel so much looser. I do not have to buy a new saddle!! Hurray!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fixed the problem! Bought these with the Trifecta Thinline pad. Sweat marks are even now- did the trick ;).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shims for the best shimable pad! Bought the trifecta pad for my 'Shark fin' wither-ed gelding. Great for filling in by the withers and lifting in the back without adding a ton of bulk. I only gave the shims a 3 for fit because they were a pain in the butt to get in. Overall, great pad and great shims. I HIGHLY suggest one for every rider!
