Cool cool, if I can get my half chaps sold before it's sold then I'd be super interested. Otherwise I'll have to wait for now...

I agree and disagree with it. Say, my saddle fits, however I still use Thinline pad. It's so thin that it doesn't interfere with the saddle fit, yet provides a good protection for the horse's back (I noticed the difference right away in their movements).

I'm not big fan of Trifecta though, because it has Thinline material only in certain spots, not all over. I'd much rather go with standard or ultra half-pad.

That's fair enough, I guess I was thinking mostly of the pads we have over here, thinline ones are almost unheard of. If a saddle has been fitted with something such as a cloth and a thinline pad is a similar thickness then there it isn't going to affect it's fit It is just worrying when saddles which are fitted with a cloth and then an owner buys a lovely sheepskin thinking it will be comfier for the horse when actually it will cause tightness and discomfort.

Yeah, those bulky ones is a no-no if saddle fits. Completely agree. :)

Thinline is 1/4" (3/16" for ultra) and cover the whole area under the saddle. I didn't notice any difference in fit at all whether I keep it or remove it (just in overall performance of the horse).

I'm surprised you don't have it there. It seems to be a big hit (as well as Back on Track) here.

You can get them here, but I only know of one forum friend who uses them and they are expensive at 84 including delivery - that's $135.
