    Mattes Half Pad with Rear Trim- Dressage is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it's worth it I must have placed this item in my cart and removed 10 times over the past year. How could it actually be worth the price? Is it really THAT good? Yes. This is a well made pad that holds up and provides supreme comfort. I use under my dressage saddle, and it fits very well. I panicked one day after the edge creeped past my saddle pad and got all sweaty. I let it dry, brushed it off, and you couldn't even tell! This pad is durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought it a few weeks ago. Got the extra large. Fits my 18 and a 1/2 inch dressage saddle great. Doesn't slip at all

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried several brands, Mattes was best This is the best pad I've seen. It's so thick I'm unable to touch the base of the pad with my fingers. The real test was on my horse. He doesn't have the soreness he had with the other brand sheepskin. Night and day! The difference was so dramatic my sister-in-law is looking into purchasing the same one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps shape & is so soft! My girl and I both love this half pad. I had borrowed a Mattes pad from a friend and just had to have one of my own. I decided to purchase one with the rear trim and I love it even more! Fabulous product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from mattes half pad with rear trim-Dressage I know I will love this pad. I had recently and frequently used a Mattes half pad as a bit of support for my Warmblood. The pad provided that extra cushion over his withers and kidneys that made his workout more comfortable for him. I haven't been able to use this one due to weather, but I am looking forward to being able to use it next week. Thank you, Smart-Pak. The cost is well worth the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I had a custom Stackhouse saddle made for Lego, my upper level dressage horse.  Lego had the summer off because of my health problems.  That being said, Mr. Stackhouse told me he was going to make the saddle to fit Lego a bit larger to accommodate the muscle he would develop once training began.  I have done business with SmartPak for 2 years and have been very happy with their recommendation so I asked them about sheepskin half pads.  They recommended mattes.  I love this pad.  It is excellent quality and both Lego and I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halfpad! These are very pricey but they are by far the best sheepskin half-pads. The sheepskin on these is much higher quality than any other half-pad out there. It stays nice and fluffy. My only complaint is that you have to order a custom pad with takes many weeks if you want the natural colored sheepskin. The price is about the same, but a much longer wait. I went with the white and am very happy with it. Also ordered the one without billet straps because I ride in a monoflap saddle. I use the dressage large for my 17.5" dressage and jumping saddles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade to a Mattes! I thought all sheepskin half-pads were about the same until I received this as a gift. I have a custom saddle for my horse so it fits great but this half-pad has made the custom saddle fit even better! One of the great things about Mattes pads is they come in different sizes so they fit YOUR saddle. The XL works great for my 18 inch saddle. And the SpineFree design of the pad keeps the pad from bunching and compressing on my horse's back. I feel he's much more comfortable in this pad compared to my 'other' half-pad. Ignore the price of the pad. You've already spent a ton of money on your horse, vet bills, saddle, tack, treats, etc. Spend a little extra to get a great pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended This is one of the best I bought - but pricey. I get lots of compliments how nice the black pad looks with my black saddle. It has not faded. The velcro straps are much more durable then other brands.
