E.A. Mattes Platinum Correction Jump Half Pad with Rear Trim and Shims
Designed with no seams on the highest grade sheepskin available, Mattes Half Pads are anatomically correct, fit neatly under the saddle and can be used directly on the horse’s back or on top of a quilted pad that has a similar shaped top line.
The anatomically correct topline design of Mattes Sheepskin Pads follows the contours of the horse’s back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle. The patented SPINE FREE® Design ensures the spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric, or tension which eliminates the risk of rubs and pressure on the sensitive area of the back around the spine.
Sheepskin has long been known for its amazing natural properties including heat dissemination, breathability, and the ability to eliminate friction and bounce.
The Mattes CORRECTION-SYSTEM helps maintain balance and straightness for horses that change form through a season or have asymmetries. POLY-FLEX® Shims are resilient, do not bottom out like foam or other materials, and allow incremental adjustments to be made easily. The shims are 5mm thick, designed to be layered, and are easily trimmed with scissors to taper the ends and create a pressure free fit if multiple shims are necessary.
