EA Mattes EuroFit Platinum Quilt Correction Pad
The E. A. Mattes EuroFit Quilt Only Correction pad has the same anatomically correct topline of the sheepskin pads that follows the contours of the horse's back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle. This pad has the same high quality construction and anatomically correct topline of the sheepskin pads that everyone loves, in a simplified 1 piece quilted pad. It follows the contours of the horse's back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle, while the shim pockets allow for easy adjustment when needed. Even without the Sheepskin, the quality and attention to detail shines through these pads.
The EuroFit Quilt pad is quilted with a layer of POLY-FLEX that absorbs energy and eliminates bounce.
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.
The core of the EUROFIT® 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.
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.
