Mattes Sheepskin Half Pad

The extreme density of the wool, combined with the upright position of the fibers, allows air flow between the fibers for excellent circulation, which provides superior padding and ideal pressure distribution. In addition, the design, which does not have any seams through the wool in the saddle panel area, eliminates rubbing, friction, chafing, pressure points and heat build-up on the horse's skin. Natural sheepskin allows no bounce, but provides extremely high sweat absorption, as its fibers are capable of absorbing eight times their own weight in moisture before it even begins to feel wet.

Mattes pads are designed to be form fitting, and to endure the rigors of both riding and cleaning. You'll notice that the top line on all Mattes pads incorporate a high wither with an anatomically correct curvature. This design eliminates pinching or rubbing in the gullet area of the saddle, which can often be a result of the "straight" top lines found on other pads. You'll also notice the pommel area on every pad is overlapped with sheepskin. All Mattes pads are designed this way to ensure the pad stays in place and does not shift or slide.

This Mattes half pad comes with billet straps and is available in White with White All-Purpose and Black with Black Dressage designs. Medium and large (colors not shown). Length of topline: Medium - 20.5"; Large - 22.5". Small is available by special order and measures 18.5".

Machine washable. Liquid MELP is recommended to increase the longevity of the pads. MELP has re-greasing properties that restore the elasticity of the hides.
