We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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

Mattes Pads are known worldwide for their quality and design innovations.  Following this tradition of excellence, Mattes is proud to present the E.A. Mattes Couture Collection.  The Couture Collection offers a multitude of quilt, sheepskin, and binding colors, allowing you to design a truly unique pad with custom color specifications.  Be your own designer, thanks to E.A. Mattes.

The Mattes Correction Pad system is ideal for horses that are either out of shape/from or returning from an injury, where incremental correction may be needed as the horse’s back and shoulders gain muscle tone. It is also good for one-sided horses or as a rear or front riser. Unique design of the Mattes Correction Pad incorporates four pockets along the spine - two front pockets and two rear pockets. Shims (12 included) fit into these pockets for a completely custom fit. You can shim the pad in one pocket, or in all four pockets, depending on the need of each particular horse. As the horse gains muscle you can eliminate the shims one by one to give him room to muscle up into the saddle. This half pad has a heavy-duty outer cotton quilt, with the patented Mattes stitching pattern.

All Purpose in White or Custom Colors.

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.

    Mattes Correction Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- All Purpose is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done! I had a recent issue with my dressage saddle and I've been using this pad and shimming the rear section. I needed about one inch in the back, but couldn't use a riser as it would squish the withers. I originally got the Mattes pad but the sheepskin was too thick and gave me the same problem as the riser pad. I was able to get three 1/4" shims in on each side but required help from the bf because it was so difficult to get the third one in. I think I can attempt to put the fourth in now that some time has passed. A seam on the quilting has already come undone but because it is back stitched in that area, nothing has fallen apart yet. This is a great temporary option until I can get the fitter to fix the problem! My horse moves well when we use the pad and since I've gotten it, I've ridden in it everyday.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Half Pad I like this half pad because it has 4 big pockets for fitting your shims into- makes it easy to get the perfect saddle adjustment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, happy horse I pulled it out of it's bag and immediately wanted a large one to sleep on! Dense, soft support under the saddle. I have been using for weeks and it hasn't been crushed or stained. Fits like a dream under the saddle and my horse seems very happy with it.
