The New Segue Pad by Thinline is on the market now and is available through JustEquus.com! It was desgned in a partnership of Thinline with Saddlefit 4 Life. It is very similar to the Trifecta Pad except for some additional stitching at the wither and back area of the pad which keep shims from shifting up into these areas where you would want to avoid additional pressure. Also, the shims available for the Segue Pad are 1/16″ & 3/16″ so are in slightly smaller increments of thickness.
Here are excerpts from a Press Release on the new Segue Pad:
Durham, NC (October 30, 2009) – ThinLine and Saddlefit4Life® have joined forces to create a new saddle pad designed to extend the fit of custom fitted saddles as horses mature and develop. The Segue saddle pad combines the revolutionary ThinLine technology and the latest in saddle fit innovations from Saddlefit4Life®. The Segue pad is designed as a solution for horses with recent muscle development that can affect the fit of the saddle and for riders looking for more impact absorption.
Researchers and designers at Saddlefit4Life® say, “We have looked around world to find a product like this. The Segue pad is truly second to none. It can help, in addition to proper saddle fit, to protect a horses back and rider’s spine from long term damage.”
Saddlefit4Life® and ThinLine designed this new pad to segue from either a not so recent saddle fit session or to protect a new horse until the saddle fitter can arrive. It is a temporary solution to offer immediate comfort for both. The Segue pad is comprised of an Ultra ThinLine attached to a cotton half pad with pockets for placing inserts that are available in several sizes and thicknesses. Industry experts call this process ‘shimming’: creating a temporary fit until new saddles can be delivered or while horses are busy changing shape during training and growth.
The Segue offers an exclusive shimming system designed by Saddlefit4Life®. Special custom ThinLine shim thicknesses and sizing are available only with the Segue Saddlefit4Life® pad..
