Why We Love This

The Mattes Sheepskin Correction Pad system is ideal for horses that are either out of shape/from or returning from an injury, where incremental correction may be needed as the horse’s back and shoulders gain muscle tone. It is also good for one-sided horses or as a rear or front riser. Unique design of the Mattes Sheepskin Correction Pad incorporates four pockets along the spine - two front pockets and two rear pockets. Shims (12 included) fit into these pockets for a completely custom fit. You can shim the pad in one pocket, or in all four pockets, depending on the need of each particular horse. As the horse gains muscle you can eliminate the shims one by one to give him room to muscle up into the saddle. This half pad has a heavy-duty outer cotton quilt, with the patented Mattes stitching pattern.

    Mattes Sheepskin Correction Half Pad with Pockets for Shims- Dressage is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am still using the first pad I ever bought which was over 6 year ago. The pad still looks almost brand new. Almost no wear of the materials. The fleece is still as thick and fluffy as when I bought it. It fits my saddle great. All the horses I have used this pad on have loved it. This saddle pad has seen hundreds of hours of wear. I will definitely replace it if I ever have to.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from new not as good as old The older models are much thicker in the sheepskin. Sadly i had to return this as it was not as effective as the one i was borrowing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Mattes correction half pad work very well at alleviating pressure points under the saddle. i just wish they weren't so expensive!
    Date published: 2013-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! This pad helps tremendously if you have a developing horse and you aren't ready to spring for "the wonder saddle" just yet. The shims in the pad allow you to adjust your saddle fit and keep your horse comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous pad. A bit expensive for a half-pad but a very nice product. The half-pad is absolute German perfection but the price in American dollars is a bit steep. SmartPak has the best price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad This pad is excellent. i had the regular mattes pad, but my saddle still didnt fit right. i cant afford a new saddle right now, so this pad in the next best thing. great quality, and my horses back is loving it. its worth its weight in gold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This was one of my best purchases, it was worth every penny...and I am a penny-pincher! Helped my horse be free in his back so he could step under and actually work his hind end. He is much happier too! It does wonders when your saddle doesn't fit quite right and buying a new saddle is not in your budget. 100% satisfied!
