First Name



The Rio Pecos Cotton Western Saddle Pad with shims has a squared-off lower edge design and includes the six pocket correction system (three correction pockets on each side) and two separate panels with detachable lambskin is available in size L. This product is available as on short order 2 week delivery. The trademarked SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine.

Unique to the Rio Pecos Range of Western Saddle Pads, is the fully removable sheepskin lining, this makes keeping your sheepskin clean much easier than having to wash the whole pad. Mattes has their own range of Melp Cleaning fluid, especially designed for their sheepskin.

The core of the Rio Pecos Square Western saddle pad is made of two layers: POLY-FLEX® (a deep-needled polyester felt) is used to maintain the shape and spread the pressure, while polyester wadding provides padding and allows air to flow through the fabric. Mattes completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, so that the whole pad is breathable.

The Rio Pecos saddle pad comes with the shims CORRECTION® System with three pockets. They supply three 5 mm-thick felt shims (POLY-FLEX®) for each pocket, offering the same pressure relief as a good quality new saddle, padded with wool and horsehair.

MATTES developed the CORRECTION® system to allow flexible and easy changes to saddle fit by up to 30 mm: to easily compensate for the rapid physical development of young horses in training, for horses that have been out of work for some time, or for trained horses which change shape a lot during the competition season, whenever quick alterations are needed.

The depth of this pad is 36cm which is the standard depth.
