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'!).

The Ultra ThinLine Western Felt Liner is made of the highest quality felt and is designed to be lightweight yet durable enough for everyday use. Panels of the Ultra ThinLine (3/16") performance foam are sewn on either side of the 6mm blended felt pad spine, creating a spine free channel and wither profile to accommodate varying wither types. At the bottom of each panel is an opening to allow for the use of shims to make minor saddle fitting adjustments. Shims (sold separately) should be used only as needed. Proven the most effective saddle pad for increased communication between horse and rider, Ultra ThinLine pads provide the following benefits:

  • Makes it easier to sit and ride the gaits while giving an ultimate close contact feel.
  • Keeps the rider's back stable and healthy by providing superior shock absorption--prevents sore backs
  • Protects the horse's back and encourages proper rounding and movement
  • Eliminates both pitch and yaw (both types of saddle slip) of the saddle
  • Protects your show pad and your horse with this liner.

For minor saddle-fitting adjustments, pair this pad with the ThinLine Shims!

Made in the USA.

    Ultra ThinLine Western Felt Liner is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling the difference! I purchased this pad about a month ago, and while early spring is still a little too changeful to have given me much consistent time to develop a program, I can tell from my handful of rides in the Ultra ThinLine Western Felt Liner that I can feel my horse's back better which gives us a much better ride. He is becoming increasingly responsive to all aids, which I am taking to mean that he is more comfortable and can feel my seat better.I am not currently using any shims as my saddle fits my horse well. After much debate and research on the best way to use this pad, I decided to use it with a single-layer wool woven topper for a close-contact feel. Initially I was concerned that this seemingly-thin layer of padding would be too little and would sore my horse, but much like the English saddle truth that a well-fitting saddle needs very little padding, my horse is building back muscle better than ever and showing no signs of soreness at all. Hopefully this helps other riders make decisions on how best to use this pad--I feel that my saddle fit well initially which definitely aided my decision.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GETS THE JOB DONE My gelding has uneven shoulders and my saddle rubs on one side. The small shim behind his high shoulder fills in the hollow lifting my saddle up just a tad allowing him a bit more comfort and no rub. Still need a wider tree, but this will get me by until I can find what I want in a new saddle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pad Very nice pad, does what it's advertised too. Thinline products are all of high quality and generally worth the cost, but considering how thin the pad is (even though it's technically a liner) I still think it's a little pricey for what it the shim cost in addition. Still better than buying a new saddle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from adjustable saddle fitter - just what I needed So far I really like it. It allow me to switch between horses with ease with just a simple adjustment of the shims, since I cannot afford a saddle per horse.Currently, working on figuring out the shims combination for each horse.
