E.A. Mattes Platinum Correction Hunter Pad
The E. A. Mattes Correction Hunter Pad is part of the Mattes Platinum Sheepskin collection, the leader in sheepskin pads for quality, density, resilience, and purpose. Designed with no seams on the highest grade sheepskin available E. A. Mattes Sheepskin Pads, simply put, are beyond comparison. Mattes Hunter Pads have sheepskin panels under the saddle for protection, while the "bare," or unlined flaps minimize bulk under the rider's leg. Outer layer is made with high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric.
- Anatomically correct topline follows the contours of the horse's back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle.
- The patented SPINE FREE Design ensures the spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric, or tension which eliminates the risk of rubs and pressure on the sensitive area of the back around the spine.
- Sheepskin has natural properties including heat dissemination, breathability, and the ability to eliminate friction and bounce.
E.A. Mattes Sheepskin Pads are made with only the finest quality sheepskin and a one-at-a-time mentality that ensures product quality. Pads are handmade from start to finish with attention to detail that is unparalleled. Each hide is thoroughly inspected, hand picked for quality, and made with full hides to ensure no seams contact the horse's back. The Mattes CORRECTION® -SYSTEM helps maintain balance and straightness for horses that change form through a season or have asymmetries.
POLY-FLEX® Shims are resilient, do not bottom out like foam or other materials, and allow incremental adjustments to be made easily. The shims are 5mm thick, designed to be layered, and are easily trimmed with scissors to taper the ends and create a pressure free fit if multiple shims are necessary.
Sheepskin products should be cleaned frequently. Correct care and washing is very important for the life and longevity of your Mattes pad. Please see the Care Instructions tab and be familiar with how to care for your Mattes products.
Comes with 3 5 mm-thick felt shims (POLY-FLEX®) for each pocket, padded with wool and horsehair. MATTES developed the CORRECTION® System to allow flexible and easy changes to saddle fit by up to 30 mm: to easily compensate for the rapid physical development of young horses in training, for horses that have been out of work for some time, or for trained horses which change shape a lot during the competition season, whenever quick alterations are needed. Simply add extra shims, or just as importantly, remove them, to suit the horse’s changing shape. It is crucial to balance out long-term irregularities in conformation. These should never be corrected by adjusting the saddle itself.
