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'!).

Ultra ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that durable I bought mine about two years ago. I wish the thin line material fit the shape of the quilted portion better, it doesn't stay tucked up and tends to smush down on the withers of my wide backed horse. Seems fine on other horses. My issue with the pad is that the sheepskin is ripping. I own one horse that I ride 4-5 times a week so I haven't been very hard on it for the amount of damage it's showing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I really like this pad because it benefits both the horse and rider. It's very well made but it does run large. Definitely get the the medium- I have a 17" saddle and it about a solid inch too big. Regardless, it's well made with thick sheepskin and I do think it was a good purchase. Kinda hard to clean, which is annoying, but overall I recommend this is you want your horse to be nice and comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I typically ride 30-80 miles per week over some pretty extreme terrain, so my horse's saddle really has to fit to avoid him having a sore back. He has a hard to fit back, so I had a saddle custom made for him a few years ago. It has worked really well with just a 1/4 inch wool felt pad, but he just turned 20, and after a winter off from work (due to my injury), he has lost some muscling along his top line and just behind the withers and needed a little extra padding and shock absorption. The Ultra Thinline Comfort Sheepskin Pad was exactly what I needed. It fits perfectly under my endurance saddle. I have ridden him in it from 12 to 40 miles at a time since receiving it and he has continued to be comfortable. I added the front shims to help with his loss of muscle behind the withers and it was just the thing. I've seen several reviews complaining about how hard it is to install the shims, but it took less than 5 minutes to put in both sides. I just folded the shim in half and slid it into the pocket with my hand, then worked the edges into place a little at a time. Easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Back Pad I originally ordered a Mattes Half Pad, but it was a bit too built up in the front and tilted my saddle back. I exchanged it for the ThinLine pad and it fits well-- no tipping. I like that it has the sheepskin roll in the front and back, unlike the Mattes which only has it in the front. My horse seemed happy and more willing to go forward and stretch with this pad. My sister has used this pad with her dressage saddle for years, and it's held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality! Beautifully made, saddle is a 17" and medium fits nicely. Can't get over how nice the construction and materials are. Never paid this much for a pad but I think it was well worth it!
