Mattes All Purpose Square Correction Pad with Pockets for Shims.  Mattes Square Pads with sheepskin offer the same benefits of the half pad, but in a full pad style.  The sheepskin offers protection while the bar or unlined flaps minimize bulk under the rider's leg.  This "correction" version adds pockets for shims so that you can fine tune your saddle fit.
 
The flaps are quilted with a  layer of poly-flex, a material that absorbs energy and eliminates bounce.  These are an excellent choice for someone who wants the convenience of a single pad.
 
Why is E.A. Mattes the world's leading sheepskin brand?
Unsurpassed quality, function, durability and appearance elevate Mattes beyond the competition.  All Mattes products are made from 100% natural sheepskin.  The properties of natural sheepskin included heat dissemination and breathability, as well as the capability to eliminate friction and bounce.  This cannot imitated by wool pile, artificial fiber products, or foam.  
 
The design of Mattes sheepskin pads follow the contours of the horse's back with no edges.  Most importantly, the patented Spine Free Design™, and the anatomically correct top line provide unbeatable protection.  The spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric, or tension.  This eliminates the risk of rubs and pressure on this very sensitive area.  There are no seams in the hides; therefore no rough edges, particularly after washing.
 
What is the Mattes Correction System?
No pad can make a bad saddle fit, however, the Correction System will help maintain balance and straightness with horses that change form through the season, have asymmetries, or other similar situations.  This system uses Poly-Flex shims that are slipped into pockets on the pad, allowing adjustments to be made easily.  The Poly-Flex shims are very resilient and do not bottom out like foam or other materials.  The shims 5mm thick, designed to be layered, and are easily trimmed with scissors to taper the ends and create a pressure free fit is multiple shims are necessary.
