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

The Ultra ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is the preferred pad of some of the best riders in the world and for good reason! Ultra ThinLine products provide exceptional benefits for both horse and rider, helping to reduce rider movement, protecting the horses back, and creating a better saddle fit.  Increases performance in how horses lift their backs, and all riders will sit closer, quieter, and be able to do more with lighter aids!

    Ultra ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is rated 4.5079 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection~ I purchased this ThinLine pad about three weeks ago, and have really good results with my mare. My saddle fits her quite well, so I didn't want a pad that was going to fluff up to much. I needed a pad that created good contact between rider and horse, but also maintained the good fit. This pad does that. And it has absorbs impact quite well, which is why I purchased the pad. Very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, best half pad ever. I've been trying several different half pads trying to improve my saddle fit on my super narrow horse. Don't waste time like I did looking at other options, just get this pad. I got the 3/16" shims as well, they are made of the ThinLine material and made all the difference. With shims, it helped correct 95% of my fit issues: pommel and cantle not level, super uneven sweat pattern, tack always slipping forward. The short and sweet is to invest in this piece of tack; it's got real, excellent quality sheepskin, it's got the ThinLine, plus it's shimmable and the shims are ThinLine as well, not squashy foam. Oh, and the billet straps on it are actually long enough to go on the billets of my jumping saddle. I purchased the medium, it fits my 17 and 17.5 saddles very nicely. I use AP/jumping saddle pads and they are a hair shorter than this pad, so the sheepskin sticks over a little bit, but that's probably why Melp was invented. As far as durability and usable life goes, there is one of these in the stack of schooling tack at my barn, it gets used by lessoners all the time and it has probably been around awhile. The sheepskin is still fluffy, none of the stitching is coming out and when I used it to see if I'd like the pad, even shimless it helped saddle fit a ton. So take care of it and it will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cushy! I got this to replace a very old Thin Line pad and I'm very happy with it. Lovely fleece. It looks great and Dakota seems very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wouldn't ride my mare without this pad! I have a mare with a very sensitive back. She's had the vet/chiro etc. and her saddle fitter suggested this pad. I've had it for over 4 years, never washed it, and used it for every single ride. At first, I didn't think I would use it in competition because it is black, but there was such a remarkable difference the one time that I didn't use it that I wouldn't ever ride her without it again.

    I started riding when I was 9 years old and quickly got swept up into the competitive hunter/jumper world. I showed my first pony, Chloe, in the Small Pony Hunter divisions were we competed at shows like Fairfield Hunt Club, Old Salem, HITS, and West...
