ThinLine Bareback Pad Review

August 13, 2019


SARAH: Hi, I’m Sarah from Marketing and today
I’m reviewing the ThinLine Bareback Pad. I love this pad, because it makes bareback
riding – which is really fun – even more fun, comfortable, and secure. Some of the things that I love about this
pad are that it combines ThinLine’s patented technology, which is really shock absorbing
but still really thin and lightweight which is great for when we’re doing bareback rides
in the middle of the summer and it’s hot. It combines that shock absorption with a really
comfortable seat for me, and then also a really secure lining that’s grippy so the pad doesn’t
slip while I’m riding, which is important. Unlike some bareback pads, this one doesn’t
have any fleece lining, which I actually really like. Because the fleece lining, I find, can get
a little bit hot and sweaty, and so for me having this one be more lightweight and breathable
is a really great benefit. Plus I love that I can still feel my horse’s
back muscles moving, because the material is really thin while still absorbing a lot
of impact. Last but not least, I love that it has d-rings
on the front so that you can – like I chose to – add an after-market grab strap for a
little extra security for those of us who are on the later side of 30. Plus it comes with a girth that is made of
the same material that doesn’t slip and is also really breathable. I think this pad would be perfect for anybody
who wants to go on a bareback ride but feel a little bit more secure and a little bit
more comfortable. And also, not have to wash your breeches or
jeans immediately after you get off. The care for this pad is really easy. All you have to do is wipe it down or brush
it off. There’s no special washers or cleaners required. With the matching girth, the fit is really
adjustable. My horse wears a size 50, and he fits just
about in the middle. There’s a pony in the barn that I also use
this on – he wears a 42 girth – and this bareback pad and matching girth fit him, as well. I’m Sarah, and the ThinLine Bareback Pad is
the coolest and most comfortable way to have a great ride.

  1. I would love this, and I'm glad you said it fits a pony and a big horse. I have a horse that wears cob-sized everything that isn't a bridle! It's always hard to fit him because they don't really make cob stuff. I'll consider getting this!

  2. It's much better to use a bareback pad if you are wanting to ride without a saddle regularly- as the pressure from your seatbones can cause soreness on your horse's back (One reason why saddles were even invented and why they're shaped and designed the way they are) so personally I don't think using a bareback pad is "cheating", it's more about putting your horse's comfort before your ego ;P

  3. Gosh, maybe some people want to go on a long trail ride bareback and wants a lot more comfortable ride? Maybe some people have a boney butt I mean everyone needs to stop judging.

  4. Unfortunately it gives no clearance to the backbone so the rider sits on the spinous processes and it shouldn’t be done imperfectly for longer periods of time. It will hurt the horse.

  5. That is so much better then the bareback pad I used as a child. I gave up on the one I had as it never stayed in place. Looks nice for the rider and the horse.

  6. I need this! My ass hurt af after yesterday because i ride a horse thats sharp in The back, so
    people, stop saying that its not bareback, its an option for those who can’t ride bareback, like me

  7. some people are so stupid. just because there’s a pad doesn’t mean it’s not bareback, it’s no difference other than a pad under your butt. for regular bareback riding it makes your horse more comfortable. would you rather have a comfortable horse a horse in pain because you thought it wasn’t “true bareback”.

  8. Okay people, its not bad for the horses backs riding bareback ahha wtf, its ever more bad riding riding with a saddel.

  9. Hey so I have a couple questions, 1) does the pad protect the horses spine so riding doesn't hurt it? 2) Can I go on long trail rides with this pad?

  10. Does this work with mules? I imagine it's a yes but just wondering because mules skeletons are different from horses. Also thanks!
