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.
