Western Felt Correction Pad Pro-Tech. The Amazing properties of ThinLine coupled with felt helps you create a better connection with your horse. ThinLine will improve comfort for both the horse and the rider. Available in Western large, medium and rounded skirt.
ThinLine - the most comfortable and effective no slip shock absorber for both horses and riders. Every ThinLine Pad comes with this amazing ThinLine material. You simply choose the style of pad you like best, the size and shape to fit your saddle.
To be a better-balanced rider with a more responsive, sounder horse try ThinLine.
So how does a 3/16” thick pad of ThinLine stitched onto a 1/2” thick, wool felt pad make you a better-balanced rider and your horse more responsive and sounder? In a few ways…
The thin, Pro-Tech Felt Saddle Pad provides more shock absorption than a 2-inch thick felt pad. Pressure points are eliminated due to less bulk, the needled wool felt pad is soft and flexible, allowing it to fit neatly and comfortably against your horses' natural confirmation, and communication is reestablished. Without all that material between you and your horse you can feel each other, but all without the extra movement and "dead" feel of thick pads and gel pads.
For the horse, this pad has a wither-relief cutout which is best for moderate to low or mutton withered horses and a spine-free channel, further reducing the chance of pressure points. This thin pad frees up more room for narrow or snug-fitting saddles and improves the comfort for horses even with saddles which are perfectly fitted. The ThinLine also ventilates, across the pad, allowing excess heat to move out from under the saddle. Most importantly, to your horse, is how these pads create stability. Stability creates freedom.
For the rider, this pad’s slim design puts you in closer contact with your horse, so your leg can easily drape giving you a seamless feel of his sides. You’ll notice his back moving more, but with the extraordinary shock absorption of ThinLine, you will be moving in unison with your mount. The ThinLine layer sewn onto the pad has a 95% shock absorption rate that spreads impact LATERALLY along the pad. This means that the motion you feel under you as you ride is absorbed by the ThinLine and transferred ACROSS the pad instead of UP into your spine. And this same shock absorption benefit is being enjoyed by your horse as well.
With the reduced movement of your seat, your balance is easier to keep so “staying” with your horse, even during quick stops and starts, becomes second nature. You sit quieter, and he responds with a relaxed, softback, and freer strides.
Saddle Fit: The Pro-Tech is also shimmable, which lets you resolve fitting problems with less expense. You can customize the saddle fit from one horse to another or make temporary adjustments for a horse whose body is changing.
Available in both square, 2 sizes, and round skirt styles.
