We love this ThinLine Basic English Untrimmed Half Pad because of the option for the added thickness in a pad you can trust. Did we mention how easy this fabric is to care for and clean? They don't even require washing! That's right, just hose them off or for the white, toss into a bucket of bleach & water for a fresh clean pad! This pad is breathable and durable, built to outlast competitor saddle pads.
Show up to the competition ready to show-out, & out-shine. You're prepared for anything when you ride with ThinLine!
Basic English Saddle Pads provide excellent back protection for both horse and rider. Half Pads offer a discrete amount of protection directly under your saddle. ThinLine absorbs impact by moving it laterally along the pad. Unless the price is a serious barrier, we suggest you choose the contour pad; the more ThinLine foam you have, the better it works.
These pads don’t require washing. You can hose them off or simply use a baby wipe. Basic ThinLine Pads can last a decade or more. For White pads, feel free to use products like Soft Scrub or place it in a bucket of water with some bleach.

Thickness & Sizing
ThinLine (3/16″,4.8mm) is our thinnest shock-absorbing English horse saddle pad. Thoughtfully designed to protect both horse and rider’s backs ThinLine creates a soft, quiet, elastic connection. If your riding is not in a place where you can focus on nuances, you should likely start in a ThinLine. If you are a close contact rider, you will greatly appreciate ThinLine.
ThinLine+Plus (1/4″, 6.4mm) is thicker and designed for beginning riders, horses in high impact situations, or horses with sore backs. ThinLine+Plus is endorsed by Veterinarians, even for severe back problems such as kissing spine. It is the #1 choice of Equine Chiropractors and Massage Therapists. The top choice for many great riders. Kent Farrington rides every horse, every day in a ThinLine+Plus Contour pad, and has done so for more than a decade.
This product reduces rider movement and helps horses balance and focus. It does not amplify the seat, it reduces “background noise” so the rider’s seat aids are clear. (Formerly Known as Ultra ThinLine)
