Rio Pecos Velvet Round Western Saddle Pad

Rio Pecos Velvet Round Western Saddle Pad, is so named because of the signature rounded shape of the pad, and look great under most western saddles. Each Saddle pad has detachable lambskin and optional correction pockets, up to three on each side. The Saddle Pad is available in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL.

The width of the sides can be altered to suit your needs. Each Rio Pecos Velvet Round Western Saddle pad is customizable with a choice of more than 30 different lambskin colours. The leather protection panels are also customizable and available in black, brown and champagne. You can choose the color of the top band, binding and up to three rows of decorative piping, with a choice of almost 50 colours. Replacement base pads and panels are available to order separately.

The Rio Picos Velvet Pad is made from a high quality, luxurious, but hard wearing velvet. Special lustrous fibres are woven into the fabric to give a striking look while the thick layer of padding makes the quilted pattern really stand out. These pads are also available in standard cotton or cotton sheen.

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

Unique to the Rio Pecos Range of Western Saddle Pads, is the fully removable sheepskin lining. Whilst this option is more expensive, in the long run it will save you money, as enabling you to clean your sheepskin in isolation of the saddle pad, should mean your sheepskin lining will last much longer.

The core of all Rio Pecos Western Saddle Pads are 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 Rio Pecos Round Western 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. Simply add extra shims, or just as importantly, remove them, to suit the horse’s changing shape.

It is crucial to balance out long-term irregularities in conformation. These should never be corrected by adjusting the saddle itself!
