This E.A. Mattes All-Purpose Contour Pad with Rear Trim & Bare Flaps combines a stylish look with premium quality comfort, cushioning and moisture wicking. This saddle pad has a classic quilted top and contoured premium genuine sheepskin panels. The patented Spine Free® design of the sheepskin panels ensures that your horse’s spine is not in contact with any seams, fabric or tension, and thus eliminates chafing and rubbing. The anatomically correct topline follows the contours of your horse’s back and allows for a perfect fit under the saddle. Billet straps and girth loops add extra security.
Sheepskin has long been known for its amazing natural properties including heat dissemination, breathability, and the ability to eliminate friction and bounce. Sheepskin fibers mold themselves perfectly to your horse’s back, eliminating friction, absorbing shock, yet allowing air circulation.
The bare, or unlined, flaps of this saddle pad allow a close contact feel. Inside the flap, Poly-Flex® material absorbs excess movement. This cannot be imitated by wool pile, artificial fiber product, or foam.
