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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

Overview

Why We Love This

Mattes pads are designed to be form fitting to reduce pressure points and distribute the rider’s weight evenly. All Mattes pads incorporate a high wither with an anatomically correct curvature to prevent pinching or rubbing in the gullet area of the saddle. The pommel area on every Mattes pad is overlapped with sheepskin to ensure the pad stays in place and does not shift or slide. Use the Mattes Half Pad with your existing pad and secure the fit with self-Velcro closures.

Made in Poland.

Please click "Add Customization" to see all available options and select your colors! Please note, Mattes does not recommend a light quilt with a dark sheepskin as the sheepskin may bleed onto the quilt.

Reviews
Mattes Custom Half Pad- Dressage is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glad I didn't pay Retail!! When you buy a Mattes pad, you are PAYING FOR THE NAME! Yes, the sheepskin is thick and dense. BUT -- it feels more like synthetic, or like wool, as it isn't very soft. And the fit is really weird -- I got the medium size Dressage to go under my Niedersuss, and it either bunches up or leaves a huge gap under it around the withers. I wish I had gotten an Equine Comfort, Fleeceworks, or even Centaur or Eous pad instead-- I think my money would have been better spent on of those brands. I could have even gotten a correction-shim pad from those for the price of this! :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad I was very pleased with the quality of this pad. It was just what my horse needed to make the saddle fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mattes Pad There are many fleece pads on the market today. Mattes continues to be the only one that offers the fit, comfort and durability that every day use requires.
