To improve balance, responsiveness, and create sounder horses, try our ThinLine Western Pro Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad!
The Western Pro Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad, is constructed with the finest virgin Merino needled wool felt. These pads come with a layer of ThinLine, including a pocket for your saddle fitting needs.
The thin, Western Pro Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad eliminates pressure points and provides more shock absorption than a 2-inch thick felt pad. The pad is soft and flexible, allowing it to fit neatly and form comfortably against your horses natural conformation creating a better feel for you and your horse.
For the horse
This pad has a wither-relief cut-out which is best for moderate to low withered horses and a spine-free channel, further reducing the chance of pressure points. The Western Pro Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad frees up more room for narrow or snug-fitting saddles and improves the comfort for horses even with perfectly fitted saddles! The ThinLine also ventilates allowing excess heat to move out from under the saddle. Most importantly, to your horse, is how this pad creates stability. Stability creates freedom.
For the rider
The Western Pro Tech Premium Felt Saddle Pad’s slim design puts you in closer contact with your horse, so your leg can easily drape giving you a seamless feel of his sides allowing the back to move more. With the extraordinary shock absorption of ThinLine, you will be moving in unison with your horse.
The ThinLine layer sewn onto the pad has a 95% shock absorption rate that spreads impact LATERALLY. 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. This shock absorption benefit is enjoyed by your horse as well.
With reduced movement of your seat, your balance is easier to keep, helping you stay with your horse, even during quick stops and starts. You sit quieter, and he responds with a relaxed, soft back, and freer strides.
Shimming for protection and saddle fit
Underneath the ThinLine layer is a pocket to insert shims. If you need help with minor saddle fit adjustments, purchase this Western felt saddle pad. Use it alone or add shims. Either way, your saddle will fit better and your horse will use his back better and stay sounder longer. Shims are made of the same amazing ThinLine material that is sewn onto your pad.
