Wearing a saddle pad under your saddle doesn't only look nice, but its also comfortable for the horse as it takes in the sweat and feels soft against the horse. It is also a good way to protect your saddle from getting dirty. Just like wearing proper sports clothes for a run for you, wearing a saddle pad made from fitting material is comfortable for the horse.
Saddle pad or a half pad can also be used to improve the fit of a saddle. However, pads can only be used with temporary and minor fitting problems. There is no pad that will correct the fit of a saddle that is to begin with not fitting for your horse!

All of our saddle pads and half pads are available to be tried out when you book a saddle fitting with us.
Mattes Lambskin Saddle pad
Mattes uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. The core of the Icelandic saddle 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 and allows air to flow through the fabric.
The lambskin padding makes the pad extremely comfortable for the horse, and helps to divide the pressure more evenly along the back of the horse correcting minor fitting issues and working as a shock absorber. Mattes SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine.
Good to know: Lambskin's ability to regulate temperature and absorb huge amounts of sweat makes it equally perfect for summer or winter use.
This saddle pad can be washed in a washing machine (30 degrees + added water)
Delivery time for your own design: 4-5 weeks
Available with correction pockets.
