Size Guide

Mattes Trekking Saddle Pads

  • Measurement A-B (Back Length) - Measure along the spine of the pad, from front to back.
  • Measurement C-D (Depth) - Measure from the top to the bottom of the pad..
  • Measurement E-F (Sheepskin Area) - The measurement will show you where the sheepskin underside will come to, if you choose any option with sheepskin that sits underneath the pad.
  • Measurement G-H (Width) - Measure half way down your current pad from front to back.
  • If you require sheepskin on the top, please allow 3cm overlap for each section when measuring for the correct length A-B (e.g. if you want front and back top sheepskin and your pad is 58cm long, deduct 6cm so 52cm is the space you can fit your saddle into.)

First Name



If you love long distance rides, or trekking with your horse or pony, even if you are out for just a short leisurely ride, having somewhere on your horse to store kit such as a mobile, waterproofs, drink or a snack would be very useful

Introducing the new Mattes Trekking Saddle Pad, which has two large pockets for all the things you’ll need during your ride. It is easy to open and close and doesn’t interfere with your legs or the control of your horse.

The Mattes trekking saddle pad is available in sizes S, M, L and XL. As with all Mattes Pads, you are free to choose the design of the outer side: without lambskin padding, with lambskin padding and trim at the front, with lambskin padding and trim at the back and with lambskin padding and trim at the front and back.

The lambskin is available in more than 30 different colours and it’s ability to regulate temperature and absorb huge amounts of sweat make it beneficial on long rides and equally perfect for summer or winter use.

Mattes Long Distance Trekking saddle pad is made from a high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. It is also available in cotton sheen and a special hard-wearing velvet.

The SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The optional secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the Long Distance trekking pad to be attached comfortably in the gullet of the saddle.

The core of the Long Distance 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. Mattes completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.

The Long Distance Trekking Pad is available with the CORRECTION® System (Shims) on request, with a choice of one or two pockets; we 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. Simply add extra shims, or just as importantly, remove them, to suit the horse’s changing shape.
