    Designed with attention to detail

    The MATTES Baroque numnah for English saddles is available in sizes S, M, L and XL and in general purpose and dressage styles. 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 underside of the Baroque numnah can either have no lambskin, a full lambskin lining, top quality lambskin lining beneath the saddle area or just a crescent of lambskin. The lambskin is available in more than 30 different colours. Good to know: Its ability to regulate temperature and absorb huge amounts of sweat make lambskin equally perfect for summer or winter use.

    If you really want to turn heads, choose the optional embroidered MATTES logo free of charge, or your own logo or text on one or both sides (ask us for a quote). Text prices can be found in the Configurator. The top band, binding and up to three rows of decorative piping are available in almost 50 colours. The optional Velcro keepers on the sides come in more than a dozen different shades, or as our PM system.

    MATTES uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. The Baroque numnah can also be made in hard-wearing velvet on request; 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. Both quilted fabric and velvet are available in a wide range of colours - you can design your pad yourself.

    Our SPINEFREE® design reliably prevents any pressure around the withers and spine. The secure SADDLE-FIX® system allows the top seam of the Baroque numnah to be attached comfortably in the gullet of the saddle.

    The core of the Baroque numnah 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. We completely avoid foam, neoprene or gel, making the whole pad breathable.

    The Baroque numnah is available with the CORRECTION® System 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. It is crucial to balance out long-term irregularities in conformation. These should never be corrected by adjusting the saddle itself!

    There is a possibility of dye bleeding into the horses hair or other materials from dark or bright colored skin, because of the horses-sweat or use of unsuitable washing detergent.
    Strong dyed leather of saddles etc. can also leave discolorations.
