    Mattes Hunter Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous This pad is absolutely beautiful and it’s very high quality. I was concerned that it might be a bit small for my new 17.5” saddle which is generously padded and very wide in the cantle, but it fit perfectly. It washes very well and the sheepskin doesn’t mat or clump like my cheaper everyday half pad. It looks new after every wash. It was worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never buy a different pad! If you have a high withered horse, look no further. Seriously. I have tried everything from different saddles to different show pads to show pads with half pads on top, and nothing has worked better than this pad. My horse has never felt more comfortable or gone better in anything else than this. (Btw.. I'm the laziest person I know, so that fact that I took the time to write this should show you how much I love it)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from To say I love this pad would be too cliche I waited for a LONG time to buy this pad. I don't show hunters very much except for my young jumper-in-the-making and my training horses, so I just couldn't spend the money. However, I finally decided to use some of my sales money on this pad and I have to say it was a GREAT choice! As soon as I saw the pad in the bag, I fell in love with the look. I was anxious about the fit since I saw it didn't always fit people's saddles, but it fit my HDR Pro/AO 16.5" like a charm. It's going to look so awesome in the show ring, and I might even have to break it out in the jumpers to get my money's worth. I haven't looked into the comparables, but there really is not going wrong with Mattes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury This is a very nice pad. I ordered a 17 and it fit my 17 Butet perfectly. Looks great in the show ring. No slipping and not too bulky under your leg. These hold up well in the wash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I have a sensitive horse. After multiple saddle fittings I knew the saddle fit perfectly, but he still had old sore spots on either side of his withers that were being chaffed by his regular pad. I broke down and tried this because the thin line pad made his back super sweaty, and still seemed to rub him. Its pretty spectatular. His back is now healing. Even with long fox hunts it doesn't rub or disturb the healing and he is less sensitive when I take it off. It looks good and fits my presitge Boston nicely. Its worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST show pad I have a 16.5 Devoucoux Biarritz saddle. The flaps and seat are wider than your average cc saddle, but the Mattes hunter pad in size 16.5 fit my saddle very nicely, and looked fabulous in the show ring. It washes well. I loved my free sample of Melp that came with this pad! I wash on maximum water and dry it on the lowest setting(not hot at all, just a tad warmer than room temp). Melp seemed to do the best job of cleaning and fluffing(I also tried using pepede wash. I was very hesitant in purchasing a sheepskin pad, but after others raved about how durable/old/lasting their mattes pad was, I was sold. This pad is my favorite and the horse loves it as well. It's great for a long day of showing, as the sheepskin naturally controls heat. I believe that this saddle pad will last a very long time because of its superior quality and washability(I'm not afraid to wash it! Even after a previous bad experience with another brand of sheepskin pad).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Luxirous Pad on the market! This saddle pad by mattes is may I say the most luxurious pad out their! its almost to good for the A shows! I don't even want to use it (But I Do) I wish smart pack had a monogramming service available because someone will steal this pad if you aren't careful. Fits my 17.5 corbette arosa MAGNIFICENTLY. If you not only want to ride your best but look your best this is the pad for you ( It comes with a melp sample!) EEEE so if you don't want to spend 10 bucks for the full size melp you can try it out, oh and a comb works wonders if you are too lazy to wash after each show (like meee) just take a fingertip of melp on a damp (but dry cloth) and gently pat DON'T RUB to clean! BEAUTIMOUS PAD wont get-use-recommend anything else!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Saddle Pad I currently ride in a Heythrop saddle and this pad fits perfectly. Ordering a pad based on your saddle size is an excellent idea. The quality of the pad is very nice. Its expensive but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad! I have an Antares with really forward flaps and I've had the hardest time finding a sheepskin pad that fit. I received this pad recently for my birthday and it fits my saddle perfectly! The sheepskin is super soft and the quality seems great. The only thing I dislike is the price, which I would never spend on my own for a pad. I can't wait to show in it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sheepskin pad I prefer the look of a full saddle pad in the hunter ring, but had trouble finding a sheepskin pad that properly fit the panels of my Beval saddle. The Mattes Hunter Pad runs true to size and fits my saddle like it was custom made! Not cheap, but a high quality saddle pad that I will be able to use at shows for years to come.
