Mattes Quilt & Design
  • High Quality twill fabric, as used to produce heavy duty work clothing
  • The inside is a double laminate of POLYFLEX (deep needled polyester felt) and polyester wadding - this construction is absolutely air permeable
  • No foam, neoprene or gel or similar material
  • Mattes Quilt-Design results in a quilt that is firm enough to keep its shape. It does not get lump and it does not turn limp. Thus excellent washing and drying properties. Even after many washings no breaking of laminate along the seams
  • Anatomical correct shape, high wither cut, hence no pressure in the wither area
  • A choice of more than 25 colours
Mattes Lambskin

Mattes Lambskin is made from lambskins selected after our own specifications with extreme dense and resilient wool

  • Since lambskin has an open structure, air can flow between the fibres, therefore it equalises temperature, it is ideal in summer and winter
  • Can absorb up to 8-times its wool weight in moisture before it feels wet
  • The resilience of the wool is ideal for pressure distribution
  • The upright standing wool fibres can slide against each other, therefore absolutely no friction or chafing nor rubbing on the horses skin
  • Lambskin, because of the afore-mentioned structures, allows development of the muscles

SPINEFREE - Wither & Spine relief

Our Spinefree design prevents any pressure in the wither area and along the spine. Combined with our saddlefix fasteners it guarantees the exact positioning of the pad. Specifically when combining Mattes sheepskin half pads with our quilt only pads, as a top pad or under pad
Correction System
  • To compensate for changes in young horses due to their rapid development during training
  • For fully trained horses which change a lot during the season
  • To correct irregularities in the horses build
  • Using a pad to compensate for the lower back, caused by age. It balances the saddle beautifully 
  • Slight compensation on a horse with unequal sides
  • Fitting of an initially too wide saddle on a young horse with the possibility to reduce the shims in a flexible way according to training conditions 
  • Due to the simplicity of the system it is now possible to compensate for the changes in the fit of the saddle caused by changes in form and condition of the horse during the season
  • Correction system single pocket for exact saddle fitting especially suited for bridging saddles. Bridging saddles are a very common problem, not only with western saddles but also with english saddles

*IMPORTANT* There is a possibility of dye bleeding from dark or bright coloured skin onto light coloured quilt. A slight staining is possible from dark or bright coloured wool onto the hair of gray horses. Fading of the wools surface is also possible. This is due to the composition of the horses’ sweat, which can be different from horse to horse. The same applies to dark and bright dyes on saddle leathers.
