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'!).

Use the Mattes Half Pad with your existing pad, as you would a gel pad (only the Half Pad is much better: it holds your pad in place, and it is breathable!) Billet strap with self-VELCRO® brand closure.

All Purpose in White or Custom Colors.

Measurements:
Medium – 20½” Spine
Large – 22½” Spine

Melp is specially formulated and contains regreasing properties ideal for sheepskin products, washable leather and wool. Highly recommended for extending the life and quality of Mattes sheepskin products. Click on details link below for Sizing Info.

Please note: if ordering Custom Colors, the manufacturer does not recommend dark fleece with light quilt.  Colors may bleed.

    Mattes Half Pad- All Purpose is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the extra cost When I bought my new custom saddle, I was quite irked that it was slightly too wide. I fought buying the Mattes half pad for awhile due to its high price tag, but when I received the pad, it was so much nicer than I expected. Saddle fits great now in combo with my Mattes pad. I bought the pad in black and it stays looking clean, doesn't shed or flatten out much at all. I hardly ever need to wash it. My pad was delivered much quicker than the turnaround time given since black was readily available. Well worth the money and it has held up great for almost a year now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Pad This pad is super fluffy. Really nice quality. It washes well and looks great. The Mattes pads are expensive, but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Best Friend! My horse got a terrible blanket run on her withers right before show season. I had already qualified for a national competition with her and it wouldn't heal. It was in jumping, and she was refusing everything because it hurt so bad. THIS was the only pad she would jump in because it put weight on the sides of her back and lifted it off her spine and withers and I'm a silver medalist because of it! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't live without it! The combination of a Mattes half pad and an Ultra Thinline pad have made a world of a difference in my horse's comfort and way of going. I never ride without them anymore! The Mattes sheepskin really is the best quality, so even though you pay more, the pads stand the test of time. Mine has been used every time I ride for almost four years, and it still works great. I love how the spine is open to allow for a better fit!I have two Mattes half pads (this one for schooling, and one with rear trim for showing), and both are surprisingly easy to care for. They take a while to dry after being washed, but if you let them dry properly and brush them regularly, the fibers keep their fluffy density. Use a square pad between this and your horse, and you will get many years of use!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic I have had my original Mattes Half-Pad for about 7 years now, and it is still in perfect condition. I use it every time I ride and it is still like new. I just bought a second one so that I would have a back up for when I wash one. I would never consider any other brand!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pad, Only one turn-off This is a great pad, made from high quality fleece, doesn't shed. The only thing I don't like about the pad is the bulky front, in front of the pommel. This is a personal dislike, I just don't care for the bulk in front of my saddle, sometimes gets in the way of hands.
