The Ultimate Performance Dressage Pad! Ultra ThinLine sewn on top of the highest quality cotton with medical grade sheepskin under the panels and at the front roll. Underneath the Ultra ThinLine layer is a pocket for shims. This is one of the finest ThinLine products they have produced. This pad is perfect for easy tack up: your Ultra ThinLine is always in the right place. Ultra ThinLine products provide exceptional benefits for both horse and rider's backs simultaneously:
They keep you close to your horse and maintain horse and rider communication.
You will see increased performance in how your horses lift their backs, and all riders will sit closer, quieter and be able to do more with lighter aids!
Spine free wither profile design.
Measures 23" long along the spine (21" not counting the front roll) and 21.5" in flap length. Available in Black or White.
ThinLine sheepskin products are made with 100% medical grade merino wool on real (non-synthetic) hide. Please follow care instructions carefully to ensure your product stays under warranty and to ensure product durability.
For Regular Maintenance: The most important thing to know about sheepskin is that it hates to stay wet. If you ride the sheepskin against the horse or get it thoroughly soaked make sure it is dried quickly. Place the pad sheepskin up in a cool environment. In humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Sheepskin must be allowed to dry fully between rides. Once the pad is dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibers and help keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride. Store sheepskin side up in your tack room, brush occasionally. A simple daily/post-ride brushing is all your pad needs if not too sweaty from the ride.
Washing Sheepskin: Pads should only be washed when absolutely necessary, which should only be about 2-3 times in its lifespan if the above maintenance care is followed. Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water using the following products: Eucalan, Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, or Ivory Snow Flakes. ThinLine does not recommend the use of other brands on these sheepskin products. You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the pad, single wash cycle only. Remove excess water in the pad by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle. Pad should be laid flat, sheepskin up, out of the sun preferably under a fan. No dryers or other heating devices. The ThinLine portion may slow drying time so placing absorbent products such as heavy duty paper towels or shami’s inside the pocket will absorb water, speeding the drying time and keep your sheepskin in better shape. Don’t over stuff pockets or the sheepskin may stretch. Do not bruch or pull sheepskin when wet.
The ThinLine foam pad itself does not require washing, but if you choose to do so, ThinLine recommends using baby wipes. You can also hose it off or machine wash (front loader only, cold water, no dryer!). IMPORTANT: Keep your ThinLine away from chemicals such as Show Sheen, Paint thinner Oils, and Leather Conditioner.
