When we developed the ThinLine English Seat Savers, we thought they would be a great way for riders to discover just how much a ThinLine pad does for their horses. We had no idea, at the time, how much this little tack accessory would impact so many riders. Of course, protecting riders’ backs from the daily impact we experience is important, but then we began hearing stories about how, with the seat maker, riders’ seats became so quiet and stable that they were able to exponentially improve their equitation as well as their sense of security. Once removed for the show ring, riders have a new understanding of how still, sensitive and communicative they can be with their horses.
Rider comfort – eliminates or greatly reduces lower back pain.
Improved equitation – reduces bounce and excess rider movement.
A sense of safety – offers radical stability in the saddle.
Rider performance – gaits are easier to sit.
Balance – Crooked seats can be relieved by adding a balance shim under the English saddle seat maker.
“I found myself sitting closer and quieter, feeling more secure. I rode for three days with the English seat maker then I took it off. I would consider myself a pretty good rider but after I removed it I could feel just how much I was really shifting around and over cueing my horse. Now I put it on for all training days. I take it off for shows and now my cues are so much more organized I feel confident.” -Mary Baker, Hunter Rider
“I purchased my dream horse this year. He is an incredible mover. But I never had the opportunity to ride such a horse so I was constantly feeling like I was doing him a great disservice with my seat at the trot. Afraid that I was going to ruin this magnificent animal, and having always been a ThinLine fan I decided to give this seat maker a try. All I can say is thank you ThinLine. I have regained my confidence. I am able to sit his gaits. I remove the seat maker about once a week to check my fitness and flexibility. I am not yet to the place where I can be as stationary without it as I am with it. I plan always to keep this item in my tack box. It is a jewel.” -Beatrice Buckhead, Third Level Dressage Rider.
“Ok. So, I bought this because my trail saddle really is not that comfortable. I guess I did not read all the information because I was so surprised by what it did. I was always a little fearful when my friends would trot fast through the woods. But now I feel so safe!” -Christine
