Once you’ve tried it you’ll never want to be without lambskin trim ever again

The MATTES half-pad is always a good choice, for general riding, dressage or show jumping. If you have a taste for the finer things in life, we recommend a lambskin half-pad with lambskin trim front and back on the top and lambskin lining beneath the saddle area - you can choose the colours yourself. The half-pad is stylishly finished with a top band, binding and our popular quilted pattern in fabric or velvet.

Note:
There is a possibility of dye bleeding into the horses hair or other materials from dark or bright colored skin, because of the horses-sweat or use of unsuitable washing detergent.
Strong dyed leather of saddles etc. can also leave discolorations.

MATTES® lambskin items should be washed frequently. Correct care and washing (see MATTES® special MELP detergent) is very important and will provide you with many more years of enjoyment from your product.

Premium lambskin from MATTES

The best choice for your horse - the lambskin pad in the saddle area.

MATTES lambskin in best premium quality provides good pressure distribution, balances temperature and reduces friction. Sweat and sebum can flow off unhindered - this reduces clogged glands. Did you know? Lambskin is also perfect for summer.

COMFORT FOR YOUR HORSE

Lambskin options from Mattes for half pads

The right choice for every situation - individually tailored to horse and saddle.

Saddle seat area (semi lined) is equipped with lambskin in the area of the saddle panels and is our recommendation for most saddle pads.

Without lambskin is of course also possible, if you do not want to use the advantages of the lambskin.

CCORRECTION® -System from MATTES

The Correction System developed by MATTES allows corrections of the saddle position flexibly and quickly up to 30mm.

Our POLY-FLEX® inserts have pressure properties that correspond to those of a good saddle padded with wool and horse hair. This is particularly important, for example, for the rapid physical development of young horses in training and for horses that have been standing for a long time. Every horse is different, our product adapts. We supply 3 inserts per bag.

Our Correction System is used, among other things, for:

  • Different position of the shoulder
  • Lowered back in older horses
  • Different position of the hips
  • Natural crookedness of the horse
  • Young horses in training
  • After illness

SADDLE-FIX® from MATTES

Non-slip on the saddle - even when jumping.

With the secure SADDLE-FIX® fastening system, the centre strip of the Mattes saddle panels can be conveniently fixed in the saddle chamber. This means that the saddle cloth remains enclosed and centred under the saddle. Perfect in combination with our CORRECTION® -System.

SPINEFREE® from MATTES

Reliably prevents pressure loads

Our SPINEFREE® version reliably prevents any pressure load in the area of the withers and the spinous processes. Here the lambskin is cut out in the spinal canal and offers more free space. This means that the saddle cloth can be easily enclosed. Ideal in combination with ourSADDLE-FIX® -System.

Quilted fabric from MATTES

We design the core of our quilted fabrics in two layers: POLYFLEX® (a deep-needled needle felt) is used for shape retention and pressure equalisation, polyester wadding for padding. We do not use foam, neoprene or gel at all. That is why the entire construction is fully air-permeable.

Breathable and form-fitting in exciting colours.

Choose in the configurator from our normal quilting fabric, the quilting fabric shine and our velvet quilting fabric.

Your riding style, your shape

We have the right shapes for your style

Choose from our eventing (All-purpose ), dressage and jumping shapes and find the right pad, perfectly matched to your saddle.

All-purpose Dressage Jumping

For large and small

The right size is important

You can choose between four different sizes. Everything from S to XL is available. So you can find the right size for your pony as well as for your warmblood. You can easily find out which size you need for your saddle by following our instructions "Measuring correctly in three steps" .

(Special sizes are available on request).

PM System from Mattes

Connects half pad and saddle pad.

Thanks to the PM slot, the Velcro fastening of the pad underneath can be carried out. The PM slot can be integrated in the half pad as well as in the saddle pad, depending on the application.

(For saddle pads without lambskin, the PM slot is standard as long as the Velcro on top is not deselected).
