Mattes Correction Half Pad
E.A. Mattes Correction Half PadThe correction system is ideal for horses that are out of shape/form or returning from an injury, where incremental correction may be needed as the horse returns to its competition or recreational form. It can also be used for one-sided horses or as a variable rear or front rise. It should be stressed that these half pads are not designed for correcting an ill-fitting saddle. They are intended to assist in corrections needed to make well-fitting saddles more balanced under reasonable circumstances due to injuries, layoffs, or intense training situations.
Sheepskin panels and pockets for shims. Includes 4 front and 2 rear shims. These shims are easily installed in 5mm layers as needed. These shims allow airflow, have no bounce, can easily be cut for custom fit, and prevent anything from coming in contact with the sensitive spinal area.
Mattes pads feature unsurpassed quality, function, durability, and appearance and are made from 100% natural sheepskin. Natural sheepskin disseminates heat, eliminates friction and bounce, and is breathable. Mattes pads are designed to follow the contours of the horse's back with no edges or ridges that can cause soreness.
