This pad’s has been super helpful for saddles that are just right without a pad and too tight with a pad. With the huge pocket for shims we can customize the shims for each individual's needs. The slim 1/2" design puts you in closer contact with your horse, so your leg can easily drape giving you a seamless feel of his sides.
The ThinLine layer sewn onto the pad has a 95% shock absorption rate that spreads impact LATERALLY along the pad. This means that the motion you feel under you as you ride is absorbed by the ThinLine and transferred ACROSS the pad instead of UP into your spine. And this same shock absorption benefit is being enjoyed by your horse as well.
For the horse. 95% impact protection moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad. High wither profile for comfort. Spine free channel. Eliminates pressure points. Shimmable for fine tuning saddle fit. Rider movement is reduced, allowing closer communication and lighter aids
