ThinLine gives riders a closer, quieter connection. The shock absorbing health benefits coupled with fixed soft contact produces better riders and happier horses. 

What is ThinLine? It’s a unique, open-cell technology that distributes shock, weight and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. The result is 95% shock absorption. But don’t let all the testing and technology get in the way of the ultimate benefit — happier horses and more comfortable riders.

ThinLine Technology:

Beginning as a liquid, open cells are poured then polarized so each cell lies end-to-end. Another layer is poured then polarized in a new direction. This process is repeated hundreds of times in order to create a honeycomb matrix formation that allows impact and heat to move laterally. The end result is that impact moves ACROSS the ThinLine pad, which produces a completely different ride your horse will love. Riders will also love how the open-cell technology transfers recoil off the horse’s back laterally rather than directly up into the base of the rider’s spine.

The nonslip, breathable shims, also made of this exclusive protection foam, can create a perfect saddle fit.

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, 75° F, it rebounds to its original shape. The life span of this product is typically 7-9 years.

What are the effects of ThinLine tack? “The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to move through the back.”  “We receive stories daily of how ThinLine saddle pads have improved a horse’s movement or a rider’s ability to sit their horse’s gaits. These riders tell us they have little or no back strain and that their horses are working better and happier. It’s a two-way street of comfort, preventing problems, resolving challenges and just having better communication.”

What are some additional features? The trademark open-cell technology also makes ThinLine horse tack 100% breathable, meaning heat and moisture are not trapped. An anti-microbial agent is also infused into ThinLine girths and horse boots. Also, pressure points created by movement in the saddle and challenges associated with working muscles are nearly eliminated because ThinLine doesn’t compress or slip. It also has more longevity than any other product on the market. Many people get more than a decade out of a basic ThinLine pad.
