Therapeutic Saddle Pad for Horse and Rider Backs Therapeutic Saddle Pad for Horse and Rider BacksPrevent and repair sore backs of both horse and rider with ThinLine saddle pads.What are the Effects of ThinLine Tack? “The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to move through the back,” Elaine explains. “We receive stories daily of how ThinLine saddle pads have improved a horse’s movement or a rider’s ability to sit their horse’s gaits. These riders tell us they have little or no back strain and that their horses are working better and happier. It’s a two-way street of comfort, preventing problems, resolving challenges and just having better communication.”What is ThinLine? ThinLine incorporates a unique, open-cell technology which moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. The result is 95% shock absorption. But don’t let all the testing and technology get in the way of what really happens; happier horses and more comfortable riders.Improved equitation and shock absorption in an Ultra ThinLine Pad is quite measurable.ThinLine moves impact laterally instead of up into the rider’s spine. Thus reducing back strain, providing protection for spines, improving equitation and a close contact while maintaining custom saddle fit.
