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.

Favorite Features

  • Sheepskin panels with bare flaps
  • VELCRO® brand billets
  • Recommend caring for this pad using Melp to extend the lifetime and quality of your pad

    Mattes Hunter Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
    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).
