MATTES All Purpose Contour Pad
with Sheepskin Panels and Bare Flaps offers the same benefits of the half pad, but in a contour pad style. The sheepskin panel's offers protection under the saddle just like a half pad, while the "bare," or unlined, flaps minimize bulk under the rider's leg. The flaps are quilted with a layer of poly flex, a material that absorbs energy and eliminates bounce.
Like all Mattes sheepskin pads, the Contour Pad feature: A Top Line that has an anatomically correct curvature with high wither and Spine Free design to eliminate pinching or rubbing in the gullet area which can lead to back soreness. Superior sheepskin is 100% natural without chemical treatment. The extreme density of the wool, combined with eliminates bounce, friction and efficiently disseminates heat and sweat. Sheepskin hides are made from one large piece without seams to protect the horse from ridges of pressure. The all purpose style has a subtle forward projection at the front to accommodate a variety of jump and all purpose saddles. Mattes pads are machine washable in cold water with the cleaning agent, MELP, to restore the natural properties of the wool and hides to extend the life of the pad. Do not use chlorine bleach. Reshape and air dry, or fluff in the dryer on air cycle only, no heat. Do not dry completely. Remove and lay flat to finish drying.
