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)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Mattes Replacement Shims for Correction Pads is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected These are not at all what I expected to see as shims for a correction pad. All other companies have thickness to actually pad and cushion the areas. These were cheap looking, extremely thin felt cloth. I could have done the same thing even cheaper by going to a cloth store. I ended up placing a special order for thin-line shims so they can actually correct what needs correction on our horse. This was a complete waste of money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap shims Shims are thin and not big enough for the half pad I bought them for. I could have made these on my own at the fabric shop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Alternative This product was recommended by my saddle fitter. I needed some shims up front but not the bulk of the fleece. I love it -- it's also great for a horse that sweats a lot -- now I can clean it more often without worrying so much about wrecking the fleece as I have in the past. Only thing I would change (so I couldn't give it a 5* rating) is it seems a bit more "narrow" in the back than the fleece pads so even though I have a 'Large' it *just* fits under my saddle. If it was a bit wider behind I would be happier. NOT a deal breaker though! Great product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from thin shims Really disappointed in these - I plan on returning them since I haven't used them. I couldn't believe how thin they were - I could have just used tissue paper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value, great option It's wonderful to have these shims to go with my Thin Line 1/2 pad. My horse had been laid off for 3 months so had changed shape a bit in his back. My saddle fitter recommended getting the Mattes felt pads rather than the Thin Line pads. They are very useful. Even through the felt shim looks thin, it really changes the saddle fit in a significant way. I have been lending them around the barn, and everyone comments on the ease with which you can adjust saddle fit with them. My friend had to use the rear shims in the front pockets of her Thin Line saddle pad, since the front shims were too big, but the rear shims worked fine in the front too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and does the job... These are so easy to fit into the Mattes pad, and even if you don't have a Mattes pad, you can velcro or tape them onto your current pad like the saddle fitter suggested to my friend. :) Great value for a quick fix!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile shims I purchased these as extras not realizing how many shims I would get with the correction pad. I'm glad to have a few more!
    Date published: 2011-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Does its job well, good material that holds up over time, easy enough to cut for custom fit. If you use the Mattes correction pad these are of course the shims to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad Love this pad. I have 2 others that are not correction pads and this pad continues to impress. It really has helped with some uneven muscle development and prevents soreness.
    Date published: 2011-01-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting alternative to foam or gel The Mattes Replacement Shims are a great choice for Mattes or other correction pads with pockets. They are thin but firm, felt-type shims that can help you easily adjust your pad or increase shock absorption without adding bulk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great! The first day I used these I could feel a huge difference in my horse's movement. She wasn't so strung out and bumpy to ride. She had become more round and supple.
