Standard Cotton Square Western Saddle Pad

The Standard Cotton Square Western Saddle Pad, with its squared-off lower edge, clearly defined edges, has up to three correction pockets on each side and two separate panels with detachable lambskin and available in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL.

The width of the sides can also be altered to suit your needs. Choose from more than 30 different lambskin colours; the leather side protection is available in black, brown and champagne. The top band, binding and up to three rows of decorative piping are available in almost 50 colours.

The Cotton Square pad is as the name suggests made from a pretty but durable cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. There is a choice of 38 different quilt colours and once you include the trim options, there is an unlimited number of combinations.

The Standard Western pad is also available in hard-wearing velvet or cotton sheen quilt (the cotton sheen has the same quilting style as the velvet).

The standard cotton square western saddle pad differs to the Rio Pecos Range of pads in that the sheepskin is not detachable. The upside is that the overall cost of the pad is less. The downside is that you are unable to detach the sheepskin for cleaning or purchase a replacement.

The SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine.

The core of the Mattes Western Square 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. We completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.

The Mattes Western Square saddle pad is available with the CORRECTION® System on request, with a choice of one or three 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.
