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 Hunter Pad is a luxurious show pad! Special design and shaping make the Mattes Hunter Pad a perfect fit for a close contact saddle. The edge is trimmed around the saddle with a shorter pile sheepskin to maintain a sleek, hunter style.

Made in Poland

    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.
