A grass roots company started by a chance encounter with an engineer who was developing thin shock absorbing materials to protect athletes. The love of horses drew the entrepreneur (Elaine) back into the industry where she worked at a riding program and competed in Dressage. It was while she was riding Lipizzaners that she discovered ThinLine. “I was riding these wonderful baroque horses but was having a horrible time with saddle slippage and keeping my horse comfortable. I came across this foam and Voila! No more saddle slippage, but that was just the beginning of the story”.
“As I continued to use the simple sheet of foam I noticed not only how much better the show horse was going but also how much it easier to was to sit the gaits. More importantly: A retired race horse was in my care and while the horse was rattled daily he was much quieter with the ThinLine. With the affect of these two horses, it became a personal mission to ensure every horse owner could know about this

amazing saddle pad.” It has been a magical adventure. It makes every horse and rider happier and more comfortable.
What are the Effects of ThinLine Tack? “The manner in which this product absorbs motion encourages horses to move through the back,” Elaine explains. “We receive stories daily of how ThinLine saddle pads have improved a horse’s movement or a rider’s ability to sit their horse’s gaits. These riders tell us they have little or no back strain and that their horses are working better and happier. It’s a two-way street of comfort, preventing problems, resolving challenges and just having better communication.”
What is ThinLine? ThinLine incorporates a unique, open-cell technology which moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. The result is 95% shock absorption. But don’t let all the testing and technology get in the way of what really happens; happier horses and more comfortable riders.
What are some additional features? The trademark open cell technology also makes ThinLine horse tack 100% breathable so heat and moisture are not trapped. An anti-microbial agent is also infused into ThinLine girths and horse boots. Because ThinLine doesn’t compress or slip, pressure points created by movement in the saddle or challenges associated with working muscles are nearly eliminated. It also has more longevity than any other product on the market. Many people get more than a decade out of a basic ThinLine Pad.
