The ThinLine Contour Saddle Pad is the most versatile pad shape for all riding disciplines. This contour shape will fit a wider variety of saddle shapes and sizes, providing more protection underneath the stirrup bars for more weight and pressure distribution for intense jumping. This pad shape is also recommended for round horses that often have problems with saddles rolling side to side.
The Contour Pad will mold to your horse's shape when warmed to body temperature, and should be used on top of your regular saddle pad, directly underneath your saddle. It does flex and move with horse so there is no pinching or pulling across the withers or spine.

Gold Medal Olympian Beezie Madden tested the Thin Line saddle pads this fall.
I recently tested two Thin Line pads, one was the sheepskin comfort pad in white for showing [show jumping]. The other was the Thin Line contour pad for schooling. In both cases I was extremely happy with the way the pad fit and performed. They aren't bulky like felt pads. In both cases I was surprised to find that there was little to no compression of the pad which leads me to believe it's going to be a durable product. Time will tell.
I'm happy with Thin Line saddle pads and plan to continue using them for both schooling and show. I'm sure to give them a serious workout.
