Wide and long - perfect for endurance saddles built on an English-style tree
The cut of the lambskin lining of the English Endurance saddle pad takes into account the extra wide and long saddle padding of endurance saddles built on an English-style tree. It comes in our popular quilted fabric, although velvet is also a great choice; special lustrous fibres are woven into the fabric to give a striking look while the thick layer of padding makes the quilted pattern really stand out.

Fine English styling all round
The English Endurance saddle pad is suitable for all endurance saddles built on an English tree. It is available in sizes M and L. The underside can be fully lined in temperature-regulating lambskin, or you can opt for the elegant crescent shape. Whichever you choose, the lambskin is available in more than 30 different colours. The top band, binding and up to three rows of decorative piping are available in almost 50 colours. The optional Velcro keepers on the sides come in more than a dozen different shades.
MATTES uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. The English Endurance saddle pad can also be made in hard-wearing velvet on request. Both quilted fabric and velvet are available in a wide range of colours - you can design your pad yourself.
Our SPINEFREE®design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine.
The core of the English Endurance saddle 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 and allows air to flow through the fabric. We completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
The English Endurance saddle pad is available with the CORRECTION®System on request, with a choice of one or two pockets; we supply three 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. 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!
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.
