Mattes Correction Quilted Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- Dressage
Really like this Mattes pad, especially without the sheepskin lining. Looks much neater under the saddle. Also came with plenty of shims.

Use it everyday.
This pad has made all the difference over my quilted dressage pad. No more sore back issues.

Great Correctional Pad
This is the second Mattes Quilted Correctional Pad I've purchased. The first was white which for everyday use got kind of dirty, absorbing the dirt and leather dye from my saddle panels. So recently I bought a black one which is alot easier to maintain. The pad comes with thin felt pads that you insert into the pockets wherever you need to lift the saddle. The fact that they are thin alows for alot of precision and they don't shift around like some correctional pad's padding. I love these pads even though I feel they are a little pricey, they last forever.

My saddle was too wide for my horse and I was starting to have some training issues because of it. While I'm waiting for my new saddle to arrive, I decided to purchase this pad (instead of using dish towels under the saddle) based on a friend's recommendation. My horse had become much freer in the shoulders since using the pad, so I can really tell there is a difference. My only complaint is that this is a very expensive pad in my opinion. I would, however, recommend it. I have seen a difference.

Saved me a couple thousand dollars!
I purchased one of these pads beause my saddle that I had gotten for Christmas had hurt my horse's back really bad. When I talked to his chiropractor she reccomened this pad. So instead of having to buy a completly new saddle, I got this pad and have been using it with my saddle for the past two years. It's Fantastic! My horse's back doesn't hurt anymore and we haven't experienced any saddle or back problems since we started using it. Even after two years this pad looks practically brand new! I am very impressed with the quality and durability of this product. It's deffinately worth the price.

Great half pad
I bought this half pad because when we first got my thoroughbred mare, she was completely out of shape, and my saddle didn't fit her. It worked perfectly because as she filled out, I took out the pads, and now that she is filled out I don't need any. This fits the dressage saddle perfectly, and I even use it with my jumping saddle, though you can see it a little more, but that doesn't bother anyone.
