EA Mattes Platinum Contour Pad with Rear Trim
The E. A. Mattes Platinum Contour Pad with Rear Trim is part of the 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. A long time favorite among riders of all disciplines, Mattes are the go to pads in stables all over the world. Mattes Contour Pads have sheepskin panels under the saddle for protection, while the "bare," or unlined flaps minimize bulk under the rider's leg. The anatomically correct topline design of Mattes Sheepskin Pads follows the contours of the horse's back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle.
Sheepskin has long been known for its amazing natural properties including heat dissemination, breathability, and the ability to eliminate friction and bounce. This cannot be imitated by wool pile, artificial fiber product, or foam .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.
MATTES uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric for the outer layer.
The patented SPINEFREE®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. SPINEFREE®design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the saddle pad to sit comfortably in the gullet of the saddle.
The core of the saddle pad is made of two layers: POLY-FLEX® (a deep-needled polyester felt) is used to maintain the shape and spread the pressure, while polyester wadding provides padding. They completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
