Question shock absorbing jumping pad?

Im considering buying a shock absorbing pad to furfill my new jumping career for the horses I ride currently and for my (hopfully) new jumping horse. In your opinion, what is the best. Thinline? Supracor? Other? Thanks

Thinline all the way! I have contour (standard, not ultra) for several years already, and I can tell the landing feels different with and without one (for the horse too). One of the few "gimmicks" in my tack box I never regretted I spend all those money on. :)

Thinline 100%! It is an awesome pad, and I do not regret purchasing the pad I have. It definitely does the job it was created to do, 2 thumbs up!

Ditto on the ThinLine! I had their sheepskin halfpad - it was AMAZING. Sadly had to sell it because it was too bulky for my saddles 'perfect fit' so now I have the contour pad - amazing too! :] They really work

I got the thinline ultra comfort sheepskin half pad from someone on here and I love it. I don't jump but just trotting around I can feel the difference. I got it for a great price(which was still a lot to me) and it was worth every penny for sure!

Just curious... what is the difference that you feel? Less movement? I have been interested in buying my mare something. When I bought my wintec, the lady at the shop advised not to get any additional padding... but I am still interested! It seems like gel or something thin wouldn't reduce air flow, right?

You just stay more in contact with the saddle since the pad absorbs a lot of shock. If you put a thinline pad on the ground and drop a golf ball on it, it doesn't bounce. It just keeps things more quiet overall.
