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 Mattes Correction Quilted Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- Dressage is useful in a number of situations! The streamlined design of the Mattes Quilt Correction Half Pad puts the rider closer to the horse, offering stability while still able to take advantage of the correction system. Also, for riders who prefer less pad between themselves and the horse, this pad, which is backed with a light flannel, allows the closer feel they are looking for. The Mattes Correction Quilted Half Pad uses the same shim pocket and shim system as the traditional sheepskin correction pads which allows for precise, incremental change in the amount of desired correction

Favorite Features

  • Can use with or without shims for a custom fit to your horse
  • Lightweight and breathable
  • Channel for wither clearance
  • Available in custom colors!  Just select "Custom Color" as the saddle pad color then click "Get Started" above to create your perfect pad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HELPED TONS! Really helped to fill the gap at the shoulders/withers. And I like how I can adjust the fit as she matures!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Really like this Mattes pad, especially without the sheepskin lining. Looks much neater under the saddle. Also came with plenty of shims.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it everyday. This pad has made all the difference over my quilted dressage pad. No more sore back issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Correctional Pad This is the second Mattes Quilted Correctional Pad I've purchased. The first was white which for everyday use got kind of dirty, absorbing the dirt and leather dye from my saddle panels. So recently I bought a black one which is alot easier to maintain. The pad comes with thin felt pads that you insert into the pockets wherever you need to lift the saddle. The fact that they are thin alows for alot of precision and they don't shift around like some correctional pad's padding. I love these pads even though I feel they are a little pricey, they last forever.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good option My saddle was too wide for my horse and I was starting to have some training issues because of it. While I'm waiting for my new saddle to arrive, I decided to purchase this pad (instead of using dish towels under the saddle) based on a friend's recommendation. My horse had become much freer in the shoulders since using the pad, so I can really tell there is a difference. My only complaint is that this is a very expensive pad in my opinion. I would, however, recommend it. I have seen a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me a couple thousand dollars! I purchased one of these pads beause my saddle that I had gotten for Christmas had hurt my horse's back really bad. When I talked to his chiropractor she reccomened this pad. So instead of having to buy a completly new saddle, I got this pad and have been using it with my saddle for the past two years. It's Fantastic! My horse's back doesn't hurt anymore and we haven't experienced any saddle or back problems since we started using it. Even after two years this pad looks practically brand new! I am very impressed with the quality and durability of this product. It's deffinately worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half pad I bought this half pad because when we first got my thoroughbred mare, she was completely out of shape, and my saddle didn't fit her. It worked perfectly because as she filled out, I took out the pads, and now that she is filled out I don't need any. This fits the dressage saddle perfectly, and I even use it with my jumping saddle, though you can see it a little more, but that doesn't bother anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! I needed a pad for some minor saddle fit adjustment but the fleece pad I had made my the front of my saddle feel so wide I would get off walking like a cowboy!This pad allowed me to shim my saddle as needed and worked like a charm. Without all the extra padding, when I get off now I can walk normally again! And most importantly, my horse is comfortable.

    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...
