Why We Love This

The Mattes Western Correction Round Pad is excellent for horses that spend many hours working under saddle as the natural properties of the sheepskin absorb shock, and are highly breathable. Additionally the Correction System ® allows incremental changes for a precise fit. fit with use of the Mattes POLY-FLEX® Shims.  The POLY-FLEX® Shims are 5mm which are designed to be layered as needed for precise, incremental fitting.  Helpful when saddles are too wide, bridge, rock, or managing an asymmetry.

The EA Mattes Western Pad has been redesigned for an improved fit over time and use. Each size has had 5cm added to the top line at the back of the pad to allow for the shrinkage due to the amount of hide, sweat, and washing. The size change will not affect the correction system pockets. Be sure to use Melp when washing Mattes pads to keep the hide supple, wash them in cold water and drying in the shade to minimize shrinkage.

Instructions for Use: 

Sheepskin Products should be washed more rather than less. Because sheepskin can absorb so much moisture, which benefits the horse, the pad must be kept routinely washed to eliminate the sweat and ammonia that is in the horse’s sweat.  We recommend washing the pads with MELP ® shortly after use while the pad or cinch cover is still damp.  Routine washing even if the horse is not sweating with MELP ® aids in regreasing the wool fibers to maintain loft for pressure distribution as well as softens and conditions the hide.

Wash with cold water and MELP ®, air dry out of direct sunlight.

For Correction ® Pads, remove POLY-Flex ® Shims prior to washing.

Brush with soft brush when completely dry.

 

Favorite Features:

• SPINEFREE® design means no contact or rubs in this sensitive area
• No seams on highest grade sheepskin available
• Absorbs energy and bounce

  • Ideal for pressure distribution

  • Airflow between the fibers equalizes temperature

  •  3 Correction pockets on each side

  • 5mm POLY-FLEX® shims provide precise correction-not more or less than needed
