The Trifecta: I use the Trifecta under many of the Double Diamond TEK saddles in the size large. The length of the pad is perfect and extends just past the length of the bars on the saddle. I can insert another layer of felt, and wedge or flat shims in the Trifecta which can readily change the width and fill in asymmetries and hollows that are not making contact with the back of the animal.
For more serious fitting issues, or if you don't like layering, choose the Skito Equalizer pad. The same fit ability is possible using the Skito pad.
The Trifecta is a half pad, meaning it sits right under your saddle not to be seen much and is only the top half, not all the way under your leg and pad showing around the edges. It has a wonderful scoopy topline, great for clearing the withers and the boney area, unlike many pads pads that slip down creating a lot of pressure. It consists of black cotton quilted fabric, a wide open gullet to stay off the spine, and two individual sides of Thinline sewn on either side. The Thinline has an unsewn area on the bottom that so you can insert shims for fit adjustment too! The TRIFECTA is designed to be used with another thin pad under it, such as a navaho or dressage quilted pad. By itself, the Trifects is less than `1/2" thick. It has two velcro straps on the front that can easily go through the front drings on most saddles.
Endurance & Drop Rigging Saddle Pad offers superior support, comfort, and durability compared to other saddle pads on the market. The only pads endorsed by spinal surgeons, veterinarians, master saddlers, and are widely used by endurance and competitive trail riders all over the world. With Ultra ThinLine, you have close contact with the horse for better communication AND the ultimate in impact protection. A special feature of this pad: we added Ultra ThinLine to protect under your rigging. We understand how important protection and comfort is for endurance horses. Synthetic shearling underside, heavy cotton/wool filled quilted topside, open spine and Thinline on two halves of the pad with a shimmable pocket. Double Diamond rides in the Thinline each and every time, and we uset the Trifecta half pad with every demo ride too. This endurance shape pad just fits under our saddles, and the drop shape is great for keeping the center fire rigging protected off the animals body. It can be shimmed for slight fit adjustments such as a dippy back or asymmetrical shoulder area.
