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 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.

Measurements: 
Medium – 20½” spine with 21” drop
Large – 22½” spine with 22” drop

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Custom Pad Love this beautiful sheepskin custom square pad by Mattes. Gorgeous colors & sheepskin is great for my horse's back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver for my horse and me! My horse was experiencing back pain due to a recently purchased saddle and my uneven riding (working desperately to correct). My horse's message therapist was very concerned and thought my comfy new Voltaire would have to go!Over the last 4 weeks I used the Mattes correction pad with shims in the back. Yesterday my horse had his follow up massage..... the therapist was elated! She loved the pad and more importantly she was thrilled that my horse's back was loose- supple and pain free!!!!! Thank you Mattes for giving me my happy horse back and letting me have a comfy saddle. Next purchase a blue Mattes correction square pad.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware! I purchased this pad a few months ago, and used it infrequently. Upon the third wash, the sheepskin separated from the pad at the seams! I had only washed it in room temp water on gentle cycle with Melp detergent to ensure the preservation of the sheepskin.Through Smartpak I was able to return the product to the manufacturer for examination. The manufacturer determined that the sheepskin detaching from the pad was my fault! Unbelievable and unacceptable. I would discourage anyone from buying this product. I will never buy a Mattes product again.Thank you Smartpak for trying to help me find a positive resolution to this situation.
