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.

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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from new not as good as old The older models are much thicker in the sheepskin. Sadly i had to return this as it was not as effective as the one i was borrowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! This pad helps tremendously if you have a developing horse and you aren't ready to spring for "the wonder saddle" just yet. The shims in the pad allow you to adjust your saddle fit and keep your horse comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous pad. A bit expensive for a half-pad but a very nice product. The half-pad is absolute German perfection but the price in American dollars is a bit steep. SmartPak has the best price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad This pad is excellent. i had the regular mattes pad, but my saddle still didnt fit right. i cant afford a new saddle right now, so this pad in the next best thing. great quality, and my horses back is loving it. its worth its weight in gold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This was one of my best purchases, it was worth every penny...and I am a penny-pincher! Helped my horse be free in his back so he could step under and actually work his hind end. He is much happier too! It does wonders when your saddle doesn't fit quite right and buying a new saddle is not in your budget. 100% satisfied!
