Mattes Half Pad- Dressage
Okay but dont like the "wool"
Feels fake and wonder if it will hold up. Thinking I paid for a name not for qaulity with this one

does the job
recommended by my trainer as the saddle kept slipping forward. this cures the problem. also many girths irritated the horse's sensitive skin and this does not

Glad I didn't pay Retail!!
When you buy a Mattes pad, you are PAYING FOR THE NAME! Yes, the sheepskin is thick and dense. BUT -- it feels more like synthetic, or like wool, as it isn't very soft. And the fit is really weird -- I got the medium size Dressage to go under my Niedersuss, and it either bunches up or leaves a huge gap under it around the withers. I wish I had gotten an Equine Comfort, Fleeceworks, or even Centaur or Eous pad instead-- I think my money would have been better spent on of those brands. I could have even gotten a correction-shim pad from those for the price of this! :(

I was very pleased with the quality of this pad. It was just what my horse needed to make the saddle fit.

There are many fleece pads on the market today. Mattes continues to be the only one that offers the fit, comfort and durability that every day use requires.
