Mattes Half Pad (Build Your Own)


Build your own


Mattes saddle pads are known worldwide for their quality and design innovations. The Mattes CORRECTION®-SYSTEM was rated the #1 therapeutic pad on the equine market by the Horse Journal.

Now you can “build your own” Mattes Half Pad with or without the CORRECTION-SYSTEM by selecting elements such as style, size, quilt color, binding, sheepskin location and color. Start with the quilt pad, make your selections*, and see the results as you go. To begin, click the “Build your own” button to the right of the photo above.

  • Patented SPINE FREE® Design with anatomically correct topline eliminates pinching, rubbing, and pressure over the horse’s spine
  • Quilted heavy cotton top
  • Flaps quilted with layer of POLY-FLEX® absorb energy, eliminate bounce, allow airflow, and will not rot, get lumpy, or lose firmness even with multiple washings
  • If CORRECTION-SYSTEM is added, the half pad has pockets for 5mm thick POLY-FLEX shims (6 front and 6 rear shims included)
  • Shims are 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 “shimmable” correction pad provides superior protection under any saddle whether dressage, jumping, piaffing, or trail riding and is excellent for horses that are hollow behind the shoulders
  • 100% natural sheepskin promotes heat dissemination and breathability
  • Additional cost for optional, CORRECTION-SYSTEM and sheepskin
  • Made in Germany
  • All Build Your Own Pads are special order and may not be returned for exchange or refund.
  • Allow at least 8 to 10 weeks for delivery
  • Care Instructions – Hand or machine wash in cold water on the gentle setting using MELP® detergent only. Gently pull into shape. Lay flat to dry. Do not expose to sun or dry with heat. Do not use chlorine bleach.

*NOTE: Mattes does not recommend dark colored sheepskin with light colored quilt. The colors you see online may vary from the finished product because different monitors display colors differently.
