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)! 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 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.

 Feel the difference in you and see it in your horse:

  • Decreases equine back soreness
  • Creates a better saddle fit (with or without custom saddles)
  • Allows their shoulders and back to move more freely
  • Creates more roundness, softer gaits
  • Generates relaxation, suppleness and increased performance

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.

    Ultra ThinLine Contour Pad is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
    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.
    Date published: 2015-06-20
    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice thin pad, but didn't fit my saddle I was told by Thinline that the contour pad will usually fit most 18" AP saddles, but it was an inch or two short for my Pessoa saddle, so I had to return it. However, I'm going to buy it in a long size from Thinline. It's a really nice pad that my trainer swears by. As always, Smartpak is great about returns, has excellent customer service and will continue to be my #1 go to place for all things equine!
