ThinLine Ultra / Back on Track Contender II Saddle Pad
Available in Black or White (as shown)
Also available in Dressage or All-Purpose
The Contender II is most technically advanced saddle pad available in the world today. This pad creates the perfect amount of heat, stability and shock absorption for both horse and rider. “I love the fit and stability that ThinLine brings to this pad,” said former US Team rider, Betsy Steiner. “The rider’s impact is diffused across the horse’s back while the Back on Track fabric increases the blood flow and reduces inflammation during the ride. It is a powerful combination. I also notice that my horses supple more quickly and show improved freedom of movement in the back and shoulders with this perfect marriage of technology,” she added.
Developed by a collaboration between ThinLine® and Back on Track®, this pad delivers back warming therapeutic thermal heat from Back on Track’s ceramic and polyester fabric and shock absorbing properties of performance and comfort from Ultra ThinLine material.
Thinline Saddlepads provide performance and comfort:
• Maximum Shock Absorption
• Therapeutic for Horse and Rider
• Effective Anti-Microbial Properties
• Product Durability: average 7 years
• Improve Saddle-Fit
• Anti-Slip material
• Easy Care
Top Rider’s React to Contender II:
Top jumper and dressage riders who tested the Contender II Saddle Pad were overwhelmed by the pad’s performance.
Four-time Olympic jumper rider, Ann Kursinski also gave the saddle pad high praise. “The combination is simple and eliminates fitting challenges,” said Kursinski. Incorporating the Back on Track fabric with the ThinLine shock absorber in a single pad is better for horse and rider. The Back on Track fabric keeps my horses back soft and relaxed and the ThinLine pad is great for concussion.”
Olympic medalist Michelle Gibson agrees, “I've started using this saddle pad on 95% of my horses. I like it because the ThinLine pad is thinner than a fleece pad, allowing you to be closer to the horse. Combined with the benefits of Back on Track, this saddle pad is excellent.”
