The new ThinLine shim system has officially arrived! The goal is to help simplify shimming for all users of ThinLine saddle pads. The purpose of this new system is to allow the same shim to be used in more pads. This includes different sizes and styles of saddle pads. There are now only 8 new shim sets that cover the entire ThinLine saddle pad line. The shims still come in both thicknesses, the ThinLine (3/16”) and the ThinLine+ (1/4”). The new shims and the old shims are compatible with both the old and upgraded styles of saddle pads.
These shims set is called E2 (for All Front, Medium and Large Half Pads) and E3 (for Small Half Pads). The Front Shim in this style will fit all sizes of pads. The Bridging and Rear shims will take a different style depending if your pad is a Small, or a Medium/Large. These sets include shims for Trifecta Half Pad with Sheepskin Trim and the Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad.
Adjust saddle fit and add more protection for your horse all in one easy step. Inserts stay put without shifting and you may stack up to three sets. We do not divide the pocket, allowing you or your saddle fitter to place the inserts precisely where your horse needs it. If you find you no longer need inserts, just remove them and keep all the great benefits of your ThinLine Pad!
ThinLine is also introducing the new Trim to Fit Shim. This shim is similar to the booster shim but designed to be easily trimmed to be used exactly where the customer needs the extra lift for their saddle. The Trim to Fit shims will be in both ThinLine (3/16”) and ThinLine+ (1/4”). There will be a different Trim to Fit shim for each saddle pad, depending on the size of the pad.
