E. A. Mattes Platinum Sheepskin is the leader in sheepskin pads for quality, density, resilience, and purpose. Designed with no seams on the highest grade sheepskin available; E. A. Mattes Sheepskin Pads, simply put, are beyond comparison. A long-time favorite among riders of all disciplines, Mattes are the go-to pads in stables all over the world.
The MATTES half-pad is available in general purpose, dressage and show jumping styles in sizes S, M, L and XL.
Small and Extra Large sizes are Special Order only. Typical delivery approx 6-8 weeks.
The MATTES SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the half-pad to be attached comfortably in the gullet of the saddle.
The core of the half-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. MATTES completely avoids foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
Please note: there may be up to 2.5 cm shrinkage on all Mattes English Pads with sheepskin and up to 3.5 cm shrinkage on Western pads. Please follow care instructions provided with pads to minimize this effect.
* Shims included (6 front and 6 back)
