Thumbs up ThinLine Saddle Pads

LOVE them, like actually love them. My saddle doesn't fit perfectly (surprise surprise) so I did my best to find the closest fitting saddle in my price range, but of course, there were still going to be some glitches.

So I found ThinLine. I got the western ThinLine saddle pad, and it changed everything! She stopped pinning her ears when I saddle her up, started moving more loosely, just happier. It compensated for the little glitches from the saddle.

Two thumbs up!

Yep, I have english one and it does make a difference.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Omg that is good to hear, I have looked at there western pads and have really really thought about getting one, after I get my new saddle. This is great to hear positive feed back about them!

timingline-in what way did your saddle not fit that this pad helped? Just wondering as I am looking into one of these and my saddle is a close fit too but not perfect!

I have the half pad for my english saddle because the wide gullet is not wide enough by the extra wide is a teensy bit too wide...

I didn't know they made a western one. What's it do?

It's made of an extreme shock-absorbing material, so any movement from you or your saddle is being absorbed by the saddle pad instead of your horse's back.

Jumper12 - My saddle was a little too wide for her, and she's still growing - so I got their saddle pad that comes with inserts. Last year I used the inserts to complete the fit, then took them out this year because she grew into her saddle. I wouldn't recommend using this pad if your saddle is too tight, there's not really a fix for any saddle that's too tight. It's kindof like wearing a shoe that's too tight, wearing a different sock isn't going to help, it will probably just make it worst if that makes sense?
