Treeless Saddle

For treeless saddles - with lots of love for detail

High quality and extremely functional: we designed our Treeless pad in quilted fabric or velvet especially for treeless saddles. It absorbs impacts, reduces pressure and ensures that the spine can move freely. Treat your horse to the comfort of SPINEFREE® and lambskin – and enjoy its positive properties in every season. CORRECTION® system and SADDLE-FIX® add the perfect finishing touches to our Treeless pad.

    You and your horse can see, feel and appreciate the quality you can rely on from MATTES

    The MATTES Treeless pad 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.

    MATTES uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. The Treeless pad can also be made in hard-wearing velvet on request; 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. 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 secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the Treeless pad to be attached comfortably in the gullet of the saddle.

    The core of the Treeless 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 Treeless 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!
