Thanks for your advice! I think I will order one for my ottb mare, sensitive, eventer/jumper, AND saddle fits a hair wide! So I think it can help her :)

Shock-absorption. It's same as their english contour (just different shape).

I just ordered one, hope it ships soon !! My mare just had the chiro and her back was pretty darn sore. Her saddle doesnt fit perfectly, but no saddle fitter until I can commit to buying a different saddle - which will be this summer. Either way I was planning on getting one of these for jumping, showing, hunting, etc.

If you have a well fitting saddle, the Contender II is the best saddle pad out there that I can find. It's the Back on Track material with the ThinLine material where the saddle sits. Best of both worlds! I only have the white one though, so I save that for shows and for everyday schooling use a regular Back on Track saddle pad with the Ultra Thinline contour pad. I have noticed a huge difference in my horse's back when I combine the 2.

I was wondering about the Back-On-Track saddle pads, that's awesome, might have to invest in one!

I have Back on Track pad. However I prefer the one without the Thinline: I have to wash and dry pads from time to time, so I want to have an option to put Thinline pad on top of any square one I'm using.

So the question is - thinline or ultra thinline?

Btw - I have a back on track pad and love it too. ;)

It depends on what kind of horse, and what you're doing with your horse. For example, I just have a baby, she's 4, and we do a lot of cow work. So I got the regular thin line, the ultra thin line wouldn't have given her quite the protection she needed. If she was mature and broke, the ultra would have been alright.

Frankly I prefer thinline (it was cheaper and a little thicker). But then if you compare it's 3/16" vs 1/8 (2/16)".

BTW, I did notice Back on Track pad indeed helps the back to warm up faster (my qh is on cold-back side).

i ended up ordering one of each (the regular and the ultra). I already have an ultra thinline trifecta pad that I use on top of a back on track pad for my TB and I figured I might as well have additional options for when I ride other horses.
