The Thinline Sheepskin Endurance Pad: the ultimate technical sheepskin pad for Endurance Saddles and more..
Now a ThinLine sheepskin pad designed for Endurance and smaller English and Western Saddles! This pad allows for a wither profile to accommodate both high withered and mutton withered horses.
A layer of Ultra ThinLine is sewn to each panel, always keeping your ThinLine in the right place. Each panel has pockets that allow for the use of inserts (sold separately) to make minor saddle fitting adjustments. This pad works beautifully with the Bob Marshall Sport Endurance Saddles as pictured above! Also the perfect pad choice for those that ride in multiple disciplines. Measures 25" along the spine.

ThinLine Technology How Tack and Saddle Pads Function:
Most equine products work on a compression basis.
They compress then spring back bouncing the rider, or like gel, move away from pressure and create sheer (movement) for the rider. What makes ThinLine unique is its technology. ThinLine is an open-cell foam which moves shock, weight, and heat laterally across the pad. Beginning as a liquid, microscopic cells are poured into a mold then polarized so each cell lies end to end creating a tunnel. Another layer is poured on top and polarized in a new direction, this process is repeated hundreds of times creating a honey comb matrix allowing impact and heat to move laterally like rings of water when you throw a stone into a quiet pond.
ThinLine’s unique texture, strength and suppleness allow it to flex and stretch over high withers, around bones, splints, girth or saddle pressure points without bottoming out e.g. reducing the amount of ThinLine in the area with the highest need of protection.
When warmed to body temperature ThinLine products will conform to the horses back, leg or girth area supporting tendons, muscles and relieving pressure on crowns, noses and girth areas. When returned to room temperature 75F, it returns to its original shape. The life span of this product is typically 7-9 years
