Dr. Jim Warson, author of The Rider's Pain Free Back, had this to say about the Pro-Tech western pad:
" ThinLine, this is the most perfect Western pad I have ever used. The immediate impression is one of absolute unity of contact, something rarely felt in a Western saddle. The contact is fabulous, the support and cushioning are marvelous, and it feels like the pad and saddle work truly as a unit and are literally one with the horse. I actually tried to generate micromotions between horse, pad, and saddle, and was unable to do so. At a lope, there was absolutely no pitch, something all too common in heavier saddles. This pad is clearly the very best thing ever made for the human back (and horses' back) in the saddle."

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
