Synthetic Sheepskin Care Instructions
One of the great features of selecting synthetic fleece against your horse; you have incredible softness without the high maintenance of real sheepskin. Feel free to put hours in the saddle with this pad, get sweaty and work hard!
This pad may be a bit large for your home washing machine, but it is machine washable with cold water. We recommend using Eucalan Sheepskin Wash for best results. To keep your pad looking its best brush off it off daily. A simple hosing will do as well.
Cotton Saddle Pad Care Instructions
Machine wash cold in front loading washer. Turn the ThinLine to the inside if using a washer with an agitator. Spin to remove excess water. Hang to dry naturally with no heat source, including the sun. Using a fan speeds the drying process.
If you have a white pad, you may use bleach products such as Soft Scrub on the ThinLine material as well as using a little bleach in the wash cycle.
To ensure the longevity of your ThinLine Tack. It is important to keep it away from chemicals such as Show Sheen, Fly Sprays, Leather Oils, etc. This can cause the ThinLine foam to harden. Be certain to clean thoroughly if they come in contact. If you are conditioning a leather portion of ThinLine Tack, we recommend using a paste-like style to control the application.
All pads come with a one-year full replacement warranty when following our care instructions. When care instructions are followed, our cotton pads are proving to have an expected longevity of 7-8 years.

I love this pad! Ordering another after I gave my original pad to a friend with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It’s the perfect pad for when you have a saddle that is a glove fit, that doesn’t need any extra padding.
I have some back problems myself and will not ride without Thinline anymore!
Awesome pad! Initially I was skeptical because it seemed so thin. It looked well made, so I gave it a try. After the first ride, I loved this pad! Thinner and less bulky than the traditional western pads BUT provides great protection and comfort for the horse. My saddle even fits better.
This is an amazing saddle pad. Absolutely simple to care for and is a breeze to clean up after a ride. Fits my saddles (english and western) and I never have dry spots or a sore backed horse. My back is loving it too. I have a friend who always uses it to ride when she visits, it’s her favorite as well!

I check my horse Dooley’s back before and after every ride as I was having some issues with a new saddle/pad combo I bought. Even thought the pad itself was shimmable I was still getting soreness after a 3 hour trail ride. I bought this pad which I have been using over a felt liner. Problem solved. Zero soreness. Thank you for a great product!
Great pad; I use it with a western and english saddle. It never budges and the horses are happy. Easy care too, I vacuum it after each ride, still
looks gorgeous. I have the round skirted Shenandoah as well. Nice, nice pad.
