How ThinLine Benefits You and Your Horse

ThinLine Saddle Pads

As equestrians, we understand the profound bond between horse and rider, built on trust, communication, and mutual respect. Central to this connection is the comfort and well-being of our horse.

Enter ThinLine saddle and half pads, revolutionizing the equestrian experience with its technologically advanced materials and unparalleled benefits.  

Do you really understand why ThinLine is amazing? It is all in the material engineered to perfection.  This innovative technology sets ThinLine apart, offering unmatched performance, comfort and protection for both horse and rider.  This material is a shock-absorbing, breathable, non-slip foam with many extraordinary features.

Unlocking the Benefits of Thinline Saddle and Half Pads:

Here are the reason our customers love love ThinLine!

Back Protection for Horse & Rider: When it comes to shock absorption, ThinLine reigns supreme. Its unique composition absorbs and disperses shock like no other material, minimizing impact and reducing stress on your horse's back.  In the demonstration below, you can see how the competitor material on the left bounces much higher than the ThinLine material.  The ThinLine is absorbing the impact.

Historically, equine products work on a compression basis, meaning they compress then spring back or, like gel, move away from pressure. ThinLine is an open-cell foam that moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad, boot, or girth.

ThinLine products also carry tensile strength so that pressure is actually distributed. Behind every pressure point, there is always a hollow point. ThinLine products work to relieve pressure points by adding to the hollow points.


Enhanced Saddle Fit and Stability: ThinLine's ability to conform to your horse's shape ensures a custom fit, optimizing saddle placement and minimizing slippage. Say goodbye to constant readjustments and hello to a secure, stable ride.

Ultimate Comfort and Protection: Comfort is key for both horse and rider, and ThinLine delivers in spades. Its cushioned yet supportive design increases comfort levels, reducing fatigue and soreness for extended riding sessions.

Integrity and softness allow ThinLine to flex and stretch over high withers, around bones, splints, girths, or saddle pressure points without bottoming out (like memory foam or moving, like gel).

Body temperature warms the ThinLine material allowing it to conform to the horse to support tendons and muscles and relieve pressure and impact. When returned to room temperature, it rebounds to its original shape.

Improved Harmony and Connection: With ThinLine, riders experience a newfound connection with their horses. Its shock-absorbing properties allow riders to feel every movement, fostering a deeper understanding and communication between horse and rider.  

ThinLine’s slim design puts you in closer contact with your horse while providing them with all the protection of much thicker pads.  You’ll feel the horse moving bigger, but with the extraordinary shock absorption of ThinLine, you will be moving in unison with your horse.  

ThinLine gives you a confident, freely moving horse you can sit on with ease!

ThinLine Technology Endorsements

ThinLine is endorsed by spinal surgeons for rider back protection.  In addition to absorbing shock, ThinLine is profoundly effective at reducing spine movement causing riders to sit more quietly and improving communication with their equines. This is why both horses and riders love it so much.

ThinLine is endorsed by Veterinarians for horses with Kissing Spine Disease and is recommended as a preventative product for sore backs in horses.

ThinLine is also endorsed by Master Saddlers because of its’ shimming system.  The open pocket design allows fitters to create a perfect fit by adding shims on any challenging topline, shoulder, or wither height, providing therapeutic benefits to both horse and rider.
