EA Mattes Correction Half Pad with Sheepskin Panels, Rear Trim and Pockets For Shims.
Four front and 2 rear shims included with this half pad.
The general design of all EA Mattes pads come with an "open spine" system. This means that the underside of the pad is designed with a full sheepskin panel on each side, but the sensitive spinal area is left completely open (only the quilting from the topside is visible, but does not come in contact with the spin). This eliminates potential problems from presssure in the spinal area.
All Mattes pads are designed with a topline that follows the shape of the gullet of the saddle. with help from the Polyflex felt, this ensures that the pad will stay snugged up into the gullet of the saddle, and completely away from the spinal area.
It is recommended that the pads be used with the sheepskin directly on the horse's back. Placing a quilted pad between the sheepskin pad and the horse's back will interfere with the properties of the sheepskin. In cases where this is preferred, such as professionals who ride many horses, Mattes offers a PM System. This is a system that combines a half pad with a lightweight felt pad exclusively designed to be used underneath the half pad. The PM System half pad comes in regular style or as a correction pad style, and the felt pad is available in square, euro-fit and contoured styles.
