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'!).

Why We Love This

The Mattes Half Pad- All Purpose is a must have for saddle stability and breathability!  Mattes pads are designed to be form fitting to reduce pressure points and distribute the rider’s weight evenly. The Mattes Half Pad is made from genuine sheepskin so it molds perfectly to your horse's back and reduces friction. The extreme density of the wool, combined with the upright position of the fibers, allows air flow between the fibers for excellent circulation, which provides superior padding and ideal pressure distribution.

Made in Poland.

  • Available in custom colors! Just select "Custom Color" as the saddle pad color then click "Get Started" above to create your perfect pad

    Mattes Half Pad- All Purpose is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big help Recently treated myself to a new horse for my 75th birthday. He's a big fellow but his Warmblood body has a slightly different configuration from my Pinto. I want a good saddle fit for him. The Matte pad fro SmartPak makes my Bates Isabel fit him perfectly. Don't want any discomfort to tempt him to buck. Deerfield Skyfall moves out with more confidence now that he wears the Matte pad. Because I'm putting the pad above my head to saddle 16.1 Skyfall, I appreciate that it conforms to his shape and doesn't blow off in our North Texas wind before I can get back with the saddle. It's a bit expensive but with the clear and detailed care instructions I'm sure it will last a long time. Since it's so new I can't evaluate durability but the material feels great and stitches are strong

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and excellent quality I bought this for my mare and we have been using it for a couple of weeks. She seems very happy and comfortable in it and I love the way her saddle fits her when using this pad. It seems to be very good quality and I plan to buy another to have on hand when I need to clean this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous in Custom Colors! I ordered this pad in burgundy with black trim and it is absolutely gorgeous!My only complaint is that I ordered it in November... and when I still had not received it by February contacted SmartPak to find out where it was - but after contacting them, I received it within a week.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse is so happy! I got this pad on a saddle fitter's recommendation and I am so glad I did. My horse is reaching up and using his spine like he never has before. The open, pressure-free center and the sweat-wicking sheepskin are keeping him happy and mobile during the super hot days of summer during our heat conditioning rides. It's a great investment. After three rides, I've already gotten my money's worth.I said that the durability was excellent but I really have no idea since I've had it less than a week. It runs a little large for my saddle (17in), but that's fine.
