We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The new EA Mattes Quilt only Correction Pads are a great addition to the Mattes line. Using the same shim pocket and shim system as the traditional sheepskin correction pad, the new Quilt Correction Pad allows for precise, incremental change for each level of desired correction.

Favorite Features

  • Streamlined design puts the rider closer to the horse and offers stability.
  • Great for riders who prefer less pad between themselves and their horse.
  • This pad is backed with a light flannel and allows a closer feel.
  • All Purpose in White, Black or Custom Colors.

Imported.

    Mattes Correction Quilted Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- All Purpose is rated 4.8824 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I bought this pad to help with my 32cm Stubben Artus fit my OTTB. The saddle appeared to fit, but then dropped down in the front and didn't give enough wither clearance with my weight (150) in the saddle. I have high hopes that breaks in a little better, as it is pretty shaped and wants to be pretty stiff. I love the design. You just flip up the velcro and put the shims in. I couldn't use my favourite Exselle half pad, because it's too short for this 17.5 saddle and the gusseted back sits on the fleece roll, and raises the back up too high. With this pad, I can help raise the front on the panels without raising the back.I feel bad for having to "make the saddle fit," but we have no saddle fitters in Midwest that will adjust Stubbens, and I'm hoping his fat will get replaced with some muscle now that I can work him without the Crosby pinching him! :) I rated this down because it seems like a steep price (even for the quality, and the regular sized looked too small, but the large is just a little too long for my saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Correction Pad I bought this pad because I got a new horse and my cc saddle (medium tree) was bridging asymmetrically on his back. I was reluctant to buy a whole new saddle right off the bat, as my horse had been out of work for a while before I bought him and I suspected that a little exercise was all that was needed to fix the problem. I decided not to ride in my saddle until I fixed this and started searching. A couple of weeks later, I began to despair of ever finding a solution when I came across this pad. I knew immediately that it was exactly what I needed, so I bought it. The price tag is high, but if you're committed to your horse's comfort, don't let it scare you off! I cut the shims to suit my needs and it fit the bill perfectly. Saddle fit problem solved! A couple of months later, I forgot my Mattes Pad at home and rather than not ride that day (or drive all the way back home to get it), I checked my saddle fit again. No bridging! This is a great temporary solution for saddle fit issues. On a side note, make sure you wash it with Melp, not regular laundry detergent, unless you want to ruin the pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Niece loves it My niece loves the half pad. She rates it a 10. She uses it everyday. She said she was glad she did not get one with sheeps wool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best Half Pad It isn't cheap but it is fabulous. Fit my underweight TB youngster with the shims to protect his back and fit my mature hunter too. High high quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous correction pad My cc saddle is a tad wide. My instructor recommended, I purchase a Matte correction pad. As always, I could trust her knowledge. The saddle fits works well now. I very much like that one can customize the pads. I have already put the next one on my wish list.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I had to get this because my jumping saddle was fitting a little too low in the front and needed a bit of a lift while my horse got back into shape. I was told to get this by my saddle fitter and it's worked out great. I can use it on my other horse too that also needs more of a lift. For a Mattes pad it is a good price and I love that it comes in black! I'll be getting one for my dressage saddle soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really adjusted ill-fitting sadle The shims in the pad enabled me to use the same saddle on two very different horses. One mare was very wide and my Antares saddle fits her well, but the other mare is narrow and no amount of girth tightening prevented saddle slipping. I was amazed at how well the shims improved the fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase As my young horse continued to grow my saddle started tipping down in the front. Rather than buy a new saddle I decided to buy a mattes correction pad. This pad has made all the difference, my saddle feels balanced and my horse is going great. The best part is that you can use it on any horse with any saddle!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
