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

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

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.

Size: Designed for saddles up to 18".  Measures 21½” Spine, 25½” Flap to Flap with 14½” Wide Seat. Seat is  3/16" thick.

Ultra ThinLine Contour Pad is rated 4.783783783783784 out of 5 by 37.
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.

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I have only had this for a short time, but so far it has worked well and doesn't add the bulk of heavier pads
