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'!).

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.

Dressage in White, Black 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.

Medium – 20½” Spine
Large – 22½” Spine

Mattes Correction Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- Dressage is rated 4.875 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have needed a half pad for a while and tried many before I bought the Mattes. I am very happy with my purchase and compared to everything else I tried it is so much better in terms of fit and quality. My only regret is I am using it to school my horse and wish I had bought it in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great construction The pad has really helped with saddle fit. I have a short backed horse and he is hard to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I am still trying to get my adjustments right for my filly (her saddle slips to the right) but this pad offers so many options I am hoping to find the correct balance with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and functionality I noticed an immediate difference in my horse the first time I used this pad. My horse moves a lot freer. Before I was using a foam riser pad to balance my saddle. The Mattes pad balances my saddle much better and looks a lot nicer. I am so happy I decided to invest in this product for my girl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pad! I purchased a new dressage saddle and needed a little something for the front and this pad was perfect. I love that it came with 6 front and 6 rear inserts to customize the fit for your horse. The pad does seem a little long and sticks out past my saddle pad a little bit but the amount it sticks out depends on which dressage saddle pad I am using. Of course I may have purchased too long a pad as I have an 18" saddle so I ordered the large pad. It is such nice quality I don't want it to get dirty sitting past my saddle pad and collecting hair. Mattes is quality product so I know this pad is well worth the investment. I may order a second pad in some fun colors for riding around the farm in and then I can use the other one I ordered for show only.
