EA Mattes Platinum Sheepskin Square Pad

In stock

E.A. Mattes Square Pad with Bare Flaps is unsurpassed in quality, function, durability and appearance. This pad has a sheepskin underside along the saddle barring area, and bare flaps made from high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. All Mattes products are made from 100% natural sheepskin, the highest grade sheepskin available, which has superior ability to regulate temperature and absorb huge amounts of sweat. The properties of natural sheepskin include heat dissemination and breathability, as well as the capability to eliminate friction and bounce.

E.A. Mattes uses a SPINEFREE® design that reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the pad to be to comfortably in the gullet of the saddle. The core 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.

  • The Square Pad with Sheepskin Panels and Bare Flaps offers the same benefits of the half pad, but in a full pad style.
  • The sheepskin panels offer protection under the saddle just like a half pad, while the "bare," or unlined flaps minimize bulk under the rider's leg.
  • The flaps are quilted with a Layer of poly flex, a material that absorbs energy and eliminates bounce.
  • Like all Mattes sheepskin pads, this features a top line that has an anatomically correct curvature with a high wither and Spine Free design to eliminate pinching or rubbing in the gullet area which can lead to back soreness.

The superior sheepskin hides are made from one large piece without seams to protect the horse from ridges of pressure. The dressage style pad has a straighter flap shape to properly fit under dressage saddles, the AP is made slightly shorter and is suitable for many types of saddles, while the Jump is cut forward to allow for a shorter more forward flap.

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.
