Part of the Mattes Correction System, this E.A. Mattes Dressage Correction Half Pad with Rear Trim & Pockets for Shims helps maintain saddle balance and straightness for horses that change form through a season or have asymmetries. Two pockets in front and two in back hold Poly-Flex® Shims that can be used to adjust the way a saddle fits on your horse.

These shims are resilient, do not bottom out like foam or other materials, and allow incremental adjustments to be made easily. The shims are 5mm thick, designed to be layered, and are easily trimmed with scissors to taper the ends and create a pressure free fit if multiple shims are necessary. A full set of Poly-Flex shims is included with the pad: six front and six back.

This half pad also combines a stylish look with premium quality comfort, cushioning and moisture wicking. It boasts a classic quilted top and contoured genuine sheepskin panels in the patented Spine Free® design. Spine Free ensures that your horse’s spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric or tension, and thus eliminates chafing and rubbing. The anatomically correct topline follows the contours of your horse’s back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle. Billet straps and girth loops add extra security.

Sheepskin has long been known for its amazing natural properties including heat dissemination, breathability, and the ability to eliminate friction and bounce. Sheepskin fibers mold themselves perfectly to your horse’s back, eliminating friction, absorbing shock, yet allowing air circulation.

E.A. Mattes Platinum Sheepskin is the leader in sheepskin pads for quality, density, resilience and purpose. Pads are designed without seams and with the highest grade sheepskin available. A longtime favorite among riders of all disciplines, Mattes Pads are the go-to choice in stables all over the world.

Pads are handmade from start to finish with attention to detail that is unparalleled. Each hide is thoroughly inspected, hand-picked for quality and made with full hides to ensure no seams contact the horse’s back.

Machine wash in cold with MELP. Air dry. Remove shims prior to laundering.
