Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date.

Why We Love This

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.

    Mattes Correction Square Sheepskin Pad with Pockets for Shims- Dressage is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pad Excellent pad for the sensitive type of horse. No more tender back
    Date published: 2020-08-07
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work with my dressage saddle The roll at the front of the pad pushed my saddle too far back which placed the girth in the wrong place on horse. The straps that hold the billets are pretty cheap velcro and looked like they would wear quickly. Returned the pad and am waiting for a refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from expensive, but worth it Cleans up well, rides great. All the Mattes products are expensive, but sometimes they have exactly what you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mattes sq sheepskin w/shims This is brillant! Finally a pad that handles the many different body types and issues that one encounters with many horses. I love this saddle pad and highly recomend it to anyone with a horse that is hard to fit. My saddle fits properly now so that my horse can develope the right muscles as we work together. Thanks to MATTES
