Thinline Global is a grass roots small business that creates and produces shock absorbing saddle pads and half pads for equine athletes. The initial concept behind Thinline was to create a pad that minimised slippage.
The founder of Thinline discovered the Thinline shock absorbing material by mistake, and as an avid dressage competitor, understood the potential for thinline reduce slippage while improving comfort for all levels or horse riding. The product for horse and rider is available in Australia. You can browse the Thinline saddle pad range available above in our Trailrace Australian store.
Creator Elaine Lockhead Castelao from Thinline Global says:
“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.”
The Thinline saddle pad technology incorporates open cell technology, that ensures shock absorption, weight and heat laterally through the pad, without the material compressing. The thinline technology also ensures reduced sweating on the back of the horse due to the breathable pads, and also is anti microbial.
Studies have shown that thinline reduces shock to the horse and rider but almost 95%.
