For use with Spanish paneled saddles.
Mattes Quilt and Design:
- High quality twill fabric, as used to produce heavy duty work clothing.- The inside is double laminate of POLYFLEX © (deep needled polyester felt) and polyester wadding - this construction is absolutely air permeable.
- NO FOAM, NEOPRENE OR GEL OR SIMILAR MATERIAL IS USED!
- MATTES © Quilt-Design results in a quilt that is firm enough to keep its shape. It does not get lumpy and it does not turn limp. Thus it has excellent washing and drying properties. Even after many washings there is no breaking of the laminate along the seams.
- Anatomical correct shape with high wither cut, hence no pressure in the wither area.
A functional, high quality product, though highly fashionable with a choice of more than 25 quilt-, lambskin and piping colours. Simple installation and correct positioning under the saddle because of the padded front trim (where ordered) and adjustable front billets.
The POLY-FLEX© layer prevents, amongst other things, any deformation of the pad, like all MATTES-pads. The backing is polyester velour, preventing friction and chafing of the horses skin with its upright standing fibres.
This pad has the Mattes Correction System integrated into it. There are 4 pockets that house up to 3 x 5 mm Poly-Flex shims to enable minor saddle fit adjustments.
WHY USE THE MATTES CORRECTION SYSTEM?
• To compensate for changes in young horses due to their rapid development during training.
• For fully trained horses which change a lot seasonally.
• To correct irregularities in the horses build.
• To compensate for changes in the back, due to ageing. This balances the saddle beautifully.
• To compensate for unequal muscle development.
• Fitting of an initially too wide saddle on a younger horse with the possibility to reduce the shims in the future.
• Complete flexibility with adjustments using the Multi-Pocket Correction© System, according to training and muscle development.
• Due to the simplicity of the system, it is now possible to compensate for the changes in the
• fit of the saddle caused by changes in form and condition of the horse during the season.
