I really like my ThinLine pads. I use them under various saddles for specific purposes. I use one with my treeless saddle and special treeless pad to help reduce slipping and further distribute weight. My daughter uses one to help her sit the trot better (it DOES help, a little
). My husband's horse has a very sensitive back, and I will use it paired with a Skito pad to make his back as comfy as possible. Both of our horses really seem to like the pads. They both are a bit more willing and forward under saddle.
They do have a 30-day guarantee, so if you don't like it, you can send it back for a refund. After my first one though, I ended up buying two more, lol. I also have their leather halters. VERY NICE!
