What are the effects of ThinLine tack? “The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to move through the back,” Elaine, the inventor explains. “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 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.

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.

ThinLine is made in the USA and we support USA manufacturers for assembly of our product lines.
