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 w/ Rear Trim-Dressage provides some extra protection for your horses back while taking advantage of all the benefits sheepskin has to offer!  Can be used over a thin pad or directly on the horses back.  Helps to hold your saddle in place while staying breathable and moisture wicking.

Mattes Half Pad with Rear Trim- Dressage is rated 4.88 out of 5 by 25.
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!
