The MATTES half-pad is always a good choice, for general riding, dressage or show jumping. If you have a taste for the finer things in life, we recommend a lambskin half-pad with lambskin trim front and back on the top and lambskin lining beneath the saddle area.
Our 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. We completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.
