What is ThinLine?
ThinLine is a thin, shock-absorbing non-slip breathable foam. The only product endorsed by surgeons, master saddlers, riders, and veterinarians.
Where is the ThinLine?
It is sewn onto the panel of our half saddle pads.
“The manner in which ThinLine absorbs motion encourages horses to lift their backs, developing strength and top-line. It has been endorsed by Veterinarians, for horses, as well as Spinal Surgeons for riders. It is a top pick for Master Saddlers around the world. Equine Chiropractors and Massage Therapists carry it on their trucks to keep horses going strong, supple and relaxed. Trainers and riders find it a trusted product to improve rider equitation.
Available Saddle Fitting Shims:
- Full Trim to Fit Shim: A pair of shims running the full panel will create ThinLine Plus (1/4 inch) thickness for intense protection. Available in two thicknesses. Use these shims and a pair of scissors to create all the shimming options your horse needs. Guidelines are provided on the shim, allowing you to confidently create all the shims you need for a perfect fit.

Medical Grade Sheepskin Wash Instructions
Regular maintenance: Dry between rides. Place the pad sheepskin face up in a cool environment, in humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Once the pad is dry, lightly brush it with a pet brush to help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride.
Washing and drying: Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water. Use a soap designed for sheepskin to keep your pad under warranty. You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the ThinLine panels, gentle wash cycle, cold. Remove excess water in the pad by squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle.
Fill washing machine (or bathtub for really large items) with water, then add a sheepskin soap. Soak for 1 hour squeezing soap and water through item from time to time. If the item is really dirty you may need to repeat the process. Squeeze or use the spin cycle to remove excess water and lay over a rack or rail to dry with sheepskin facing up. Keep out of the sun, and away from direct heat and dryers. Please do not brush or pull sheepskin fibers when wet. To prevent shrinkage, gently stretch the hide while drying.
Full Sheepskin Pads may take 2-3 days to dry. Sheepskin trimmed items should be good to go in a day. The ThinLine shim may slow drying time, we recommend placing absorbent products such as paper towels or chamois cloths inside the pocket.
On white pads you may use Scotch Guard to the rolls to keep them clean and extend washing cycles.
When the care instructions are followed properly, our sheepskin pads are proving to have an expected 4-5 years of use.
