Out of stock

The custom sizes EA Mattes Rear Trim Correction Half Pad with pockets for shims fits neatly under the saddle and can be used directly on the horse's back, or on top of a quilted pad that has a similar shaped top line. The Mattes Correction System is designed to enhance saddle fit as no pad can make a bad saddle fit, however, the correction pad will help maintain balance and straightness with horses that change form through the season, have asymmetries, or other similar situations.

The Mattes Correction Pad incorporates 4 pockets along the spine 2 front pockets and 2 rear pockets. The Poly-Flex shims (6 included) are 5mm thick, very resilient and do not bottom out like foam or other materials. They can be layered and easily trimmed with scissors to create a pressure free fit.

  • All Mattes products are made from 100% natural sheepskin.
  • Natural sheepskin provides heat dissemination and breathability, as well as the capability to eliminate friction and bounce.
  • Follow the contours of the horse's back with no sharp edges.
  • The patented Spine Free Design, and anatomically correct top line provide unbeatable protection.
  • The spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric, or tension giving your horse ultimate comfort.
Made from high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric for the outer layer, and soft plush natural sheekspin on the underside and for the rolls. This pad is fully lined with sheepskin that wraps around both the front and back, making soft rolls that sit perfectly around your saddle. The core of the half-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. We completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
E.A Mattes pads feature their SPINEFREE® design that reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine and secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the half-pad to sit neatly within the gullet of the saddle.

Mattes sheepskin should be dried thoroughly after each ride or at the end of each day. Let it air dry overnight, upside down and brush the wool with a stiff brush to loosen up and remove dirt and hair. The Mattes special detergent, MELP, is highly concentrated and designed for sheepskin products. Regular detergents can easily harden the leather and can render the wool brittle or matted. Machine washable on gentle cycle in cold water. Air fluff in dryer with no heat. Do not dry completely, while still damp gently pull into shape. Lay flat to finish drying. Do Not expose to sun or dry on a radiator. Do not use chlorine bleach!

Simply add extra shims, or just as importantly,
