Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A Thank you for your question! All of ThinLine's shimmable pads are fantastic for young, developing horses. The shimming system allows you to adjust your saddle fit as she grows. As for the specific pad, we recommend selecting a pad that is a good fit with your particular saddle style made out of the base material that you prefer. If you click on the Australian flag at the top of the website, you will be taken through to the ThinLine Australia page for ordering.
  2. A Hi! The thickness of this pad is approximately 3/4" and 1/2" when compressed. The Ultra ThinLine panels across the topline add 3/16". It's difficult to say how it would affect the fit of your saddle. We do have other pads that are thinner, which is what most people go with when they have a well fitting saddle. Please feel free to give it a try though! We offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on all of our pads. You're also welcome to give us a call if you'd like further help choosing the best pad for you. 888-401-9101
