I was privileged back in March 2021 to be introduced to Mattes saddle pads through my long-standing relationship with Simon Middleton of Zebra Products.
I’m incredibly lucky that the horses are now able to have saddle pads with luxurious lambskins the softness against my horse’s skin is amazing, they are the perfect fit to the horses and the saddles sit brilliantly on top added to that they are such superior quality.
The saddle pads incorporate Poly-flex® lining which ensures the product retains its shape whilst in use and after washing. The inner fabric is velour, which helps to prevent friction and ensures comfort for the horse. The outer quilt fabric is a velvet or a quality grade cotton combined with polyamide fibres, which has excellent piling properties and superior colour fastness compared to 100% cotton. Sourced from Australia, Mattes create their unique lambskins in their tannery in Poland.
Mattes also offer an innovative Online Configurator service with the option to personalise the Mattes range of equestrian products to suit personal ideas and requirements.
