What customers are saying about ThinLine.
For three weeks, I rode two of our Morgan stallions, both with correctly fitted saddles. One day with the ThinLine, the next without. Every time the ThinLine was on board, my boys’ gaits swung more, their backs were consistently up and my aids were more thoughts than actions.
These are some of the conditions you too should turn to ThinLine to solve:
Young horses: with their growth so unpredictable, we protect a developing back while keeping the young horse’s saddle balanced with Cotton Comfort and Sheepskin Comfort pads (using the appropriate shims.) No more changing the flocking of the saddle very few months. No more unbalanced saddles (low in front) driving the points into the growing horse’s back. And it saves money!

New riders or riders in the process of losing weight: In both cases, with the use of the ThinLine pad, 95% of recoil is diverted from the horse’s back. I try to get all my school horses outfitted with the 202 ThinLine pad for just this reason.
Riders with back problems: The Ultra ThinLine offers the rider impact protection and reduces the movement of the lower back.
Saddles on low wither, round horses: Laterally stability is everything for security. Give the round backed horses a ThinLine pad and girth and the saddle stops rolling.”
This pad is amazing! Do you all do sponsorships or need a western/barrel racing dealer. If so, how would that work? I am about to start talking this up like crazy!
I purchased the Contender Western Square by Back on Track because my filly had a sore sacrum area to which I had given her a year off. During that time she had some growth spurts and grew withers. Oddly enough, after that, I could need keep my saddle from slipping and I was nervous to try a bunch of different pads on her in fear of making her back sore again. I chose this product because I liked the idea of the ceramic fabric and the shock absorption put together.
If you remember my calls and email when it arrived, I was quite skeptical. I was even questioning if this was the correct item I ordered as I had never seen one before! I tried it out the night it arrived. It had been raining and miss priss doesn't like to get her feet wet. I figured that was a great time to see what the pad felt like. I was amazed. Even with her refusing puddles and jumping around, I felt more stable in my saddle than I think I ever had! I even had my husband get on her and tell me that he thought. His words were, "It is amazing that something so small can make such a huge difference."
Before her year off, my filly clocked .5 second off of Sarah McDonald and Bling at the Florida State NBHA Finals. After bringing her back slowly, we were stuck in the 3D crack (1.5 seconds off) off some of the toughest competition currently in Florida. We entered two barrel races the weekend after receiving our thinline. The first day we were less than a half second off the leader and the next day we were less than a second (with rider error). The ONLY thing that had changed was this pad. The stability the pad provides, the fact that I do not have to cinch my horse as tight, and the proof she is running faster is everything I could have wanted out of this experience.
Thank you SO much!
Elaine Lockhead Costello, as much as I adore your products - my favorite part is reading these kinds of articles about you. In the midst of unemployment as a single mother, I began handcrafting artisan style bitless bridles. With encouragement of family and friends - as well as - the inspiration I find in hearing your story, I took a huge leap of faith and started my own tack company. I just wanted to let you know what a positive impact following your company has had on me as I carve a niche for my own unique products & strive to build a name for my young up and coming brand. With great sincerity, thank you!
My name is Emma Schwartz and I ride at Stowaway Hunter Jumpers in Watertown, Wisconsin. I just wanted to contact you and say how much my trainers (Mark and Amy Aplin) and I love using your products. I recently moved to the barn and Amy recommend using the trifecta pad as it takes pressure off of the horse and helps to preserve saddle fit, which has been an issue for my mare in the past. I quickly noticed that every single one of the horses at the barn goes in some variation of that pad as there is a noticeable difference when using them. Amy is always one for research and will not recommend a product unless she sees a difference. From the 2’6” hunters to her own personal Grand Prix Jumper Amy will always have a thineline under her saddle and so will any of us at the barn. We just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful product and for how much it has helped our horses and their performance. We would love to have a thineline banner to put up at the shows to represent our love for your products!
