Mattes Square Sheepskin Pad- Dressage
Lovely well made super pad
Always love these pads for horses with sensitive backs. If your saddle measures an 18 and has slightly large panels that stick out a bit the large won't be big enough so just keep that in mind. Otherwise I love this pad, I use melp to keep it clean and just brush it down after use once dry.

Nothing like Mattes
I've tried lots of pads, many less expensive, but none of them delivers on the quality and comfort. If you have a saddle that is too wide, this is the only right answer.

Luxury saddle pad!
I was worried this would be too thick, but its perfect. My saddle still fits great, the horse seems to really like it. I havent had it long enough to judge durability but so far so good. It was pricey since I intend it for schooling and dont compete, but I am glad I bought it.

Good product but too pricey
You can eliminate extra pad on the horse. The price is prohibiting to buy. Often this brand has many loose threads from the stitching, the Velcro is not very durable. The design looks good and is prestigious.

Beautiful pad, top notch quality
My wife and I recently purchased a young dressage prospect. When the saddle fitter came, she recommended a fleece pad to help his sensitive back. So we purchased 4 pads of different brands. When this pad came, we were impressed with the obvious quality and elegance of the pad. It is a well constructed, top notch product. It will now be the show pad, and the others will be for everyday use. This pad is clearly the best of the bunch.

Great Saddle Pad
This pad is definitely worth the money! The quality is obvious from the minute you take it out of the package, and my horse definitely approves! He has extremely tall withers, but this pad did not sit on them or bunch up like other wool pads I have used. The pad has definitely helped his saddle--which is pretty well fitted to him--fit even better. I will definitely be buying more of these in other styles for the future.
