EA Mattes Platinum PM Correction Half Pad
The Mattes Platinum PM Correction Half Pad is part of the PM System that was developed in conjunction with Peter Menet, designer of Amerigo and Vega saddles. The PM System Half Pads have all the same features and benefits of the original Mattes Half Pads, but the billet straps are replaced by a button hole on each side that goes completely through the pad. This allows the billet straps of a Mattes Quilt-Only or Light Flannel Pad to be fed through the button hole, making two pads into one unit. This eliminates any sliding, extra movement or friction and creates the feel of 1 cohesive pad.
E. A. Mattes Platinum Sheepskin is 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. Designed with no seams on the highest grade sheepskin available and a high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric.
The SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the half-pad to sit comfortably in the gullet of the 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. They completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
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.
Sold with 3 5 mm-thick felt shims (POLY-FLEX®) for each pocket, offering the same pressure relief as a good quality new saddle, padded with wool and horsehair.
