The Answer for a Shimmable Western Saddle Pad without the Bulk
All shimmable pads begin with a ThinLine 3/16” panel over top of the base pad. Each saddle pad has a pocket beneath the ThinLine panel to place optional shims for fine tuning saddle fit.
These shims have been carefully designed by Master Saddlers. They are custom cut with a tapered edge to ensure you will never have a pressure point. Our exclusive foam makes saddles fit better and horses more comfortable.
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!
There is 2 thickness of shims to choose from:
- ThinLine (3/16”)
- ThinLine+ (1/4”)
Shims come in:
The Front, Bridging, and Rear Shims are the same size and can be used in the Medium or Large size pad.
The ThinLine Plus Booster Shim only comes in one single full-length shim that will boost your pad’s overall thickness from the original 3/16” to an even ¼”. The ThinLine Boost Shim has a thickness of 5mm.
Another option is the Saddle Fitter’s Kit which is available for all styles of pads. This package includes one set of front shims in the ThinLine Plus (1/4”) thickness and two sets of bridging shims one in the ThinLine (3/16”) thickness and one in the ThinLine Plus (1/4″) thickness.
Please note,ThinLine shims may arrive in black, brown or white. Shims cannot be seen inside your pad, so color is not an issue.
Each style of saddle pad will have a differently shaped shim. Make sure you order the correct shim to match your pad.
Use the Small size for Round style of the pad. The small size will also work for the Waxed Endurance Saddle Pad.
