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

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® brand closures.

Available in Black, White, or Custom Colors.

Made in Poland.

    Mattes Half Pad- Dressage is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't add bulk to saddle Just started using it but so far I really like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad. Looks great too. Lovely quality sheepskin. Looks like it will last for many years. Just the right thickness for my Passier saddle.
    Date published: 2016-04-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick Pad I was looking for a pad that would take up some room in my saddle that is a tiny bit too wide and something that would lift the saddle above my horse's high wither. This pad was perfect because the sheepskin is thick and dense unlike the other brand that I own that does not change the fit of the saddle. In my opinion this pad is like adding a shim or two.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Pad with Perfect Amount of Loft I have used Mattes pads with the rolled edges for years and have loved the quality and loft of the wool. My saddle fitter recently told me that if the saddle is sitting on the rolled edges it can cause a hot spot for the horse. She suggested that I try this pad without a trim. It's working perfectly. I never did get a hot spot with the other pad, but I'm riding a young, big horse and I want him to be as comfortable and happy as possible so I switched to this style instead. Even though I don't't use the billet straps with my type of saddle, there has been no problem with the pad sliding out the back of the same.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft, but shedding. This is my 2nd Mattes Half Pad and this one doesn't seem to be as well made as it keeps shedding. I have only used it twice so I have cause for concern.
