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!

Coordinate with ThinLine Shims for Trifecta and Sheepskin Comfort Half Pads.

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
How to Use Your ThinLine:

ThinLine recommends that any basic ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads be used between your saddle and a regular saddle pad. While you can use ThinLine pads
 
directly on the horses back the lifespan of the pad may be shortened. When used over another pad the average lifespan is 7-9 years. Pads used directly against the horse are not warrantied. 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)
 
Combo or full pads, like the Cotton Comfort, Sheepksin, or Felt pad lines, may be used alone.

Care Instructions for Sheepskin Pads:

ThinLine sheepskin products are made with 100% medical grade merino wool on a real (non-synthetic) hide. Please follow care instructions carefully to ensure you product stays under warranty and to ensure product durablity.
 
For Regular Maintenance – The most important thing to know about sheepskin is that it hates to stay wet. If you ride the sheepskin against the horse or get it thoroughly soaked make it is dried quickly. Place the pad sheepskin up in a cool environment. In humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Sheepskin must be allowed to dry fully between rides. Once the pad is dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibers and help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride. Ride, flip sheepskin side up in your tack room, brush occasionally. A simple daily/post-ride brushing is all your pad needs if not too sweaty from the ride.
 
Washing Sheepskin—Pads should only be washed when absolutely necessary, which should only be about 2-3 times in it’s lifespan if the above maintenance care is followed. Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water using one of the following 3 approved products: Eucalan, Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, or Ivory Snow Flakes.  These products have been tested on sheepskin and are covered under warranty.  You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the pad, single wash cycle only. Remove excess water in the pad by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle.
 
Drying Sheepskin— Sheepskin saddle pads should be laid flat, sheepskin up, out of the sun preferably under a fan. No dryers or other heating devices. The ThinLine shim may slow drying time so placing absorbent products such as heavy duty paper towels or shami’s such as sham wow inside the pocket will absorb water, speed the drying time and keep your sheepskin in better shape. Don’t over stuff pockets or the sheepskin may stretch. Do not brush or pull sheepskin when wet.
 
To keep the rolls clean and extend washing cycles, especially on white pads, you can lightly spray Scotch Guard the rolls.

    Ultra ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from back Saver We use these on all of our therapeutic horses for their riding lessons. I truly believe that they are a huge help with keeping our horses backs from getting sore. therapeutic horses have to carry mainly unbalanced riders and we have had far less back issues since we started using the Ultra Thinline sheepskin Comfort Half Pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the soft sheepskin padding This is the only saddle pad by trainer suggests for use on all her horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money My sensitive mare loves this pad. Her trot is more forward and her shoulders are freer.
    Date published: 2016-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad! I bought this a month or so ago and have used it on 2 different horses with great results. My OTTB was more pleasant under saddle and my QH/TB cross showed jumpers in it with great results. I placed the shims for the QH/TB mare as she is older with high withers. Would definitely purchase again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great pad, needs more color options!! Love this pad. I have had it for years, I would LOVE if it came in brown...white is so hard to keep clean and the black color sticks out too much.
