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'!).

Insert type: Front Inserts: to fill in behind the shoulder or lift at the wither Rear Inserts: to lift or level the back of the saddle Bridging Inserts: a center insert to fill in hollow backed horses

    ThinLine Shims for Contender II Saddle Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought the shims for extra padding in my super sensitive TB, not to adjust the saddle (it fits him perfectly). The Contender II pad does have padding, but it needed a little extra. These shims did the trick. All of his back pain is gone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shims helped saddle fit I purchased the Contender II saddle pad, and love that, but as my horse lost weight his saddle really sat too low on his back. These shims did the trick of raising the saddle back up off his back so I don't have to get a new one or reflock yet. He does warm up quicker with this pad and I think it makes him more comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little lift I was looking for a small adjustment for my custom fit dressage saddle. These shims were a perfect fix until I can have my saddle adjusted. I like that they came in two thicknesses to meet different needs.
