The name says it all: the squared design of the Square Western pad is a winner - elegant and timeless. The quilted fabric is tough, the full lambskin lining is superbly functional, the design is anatomical and the clever wear leathers protect the sides from abrasion. It goes without saying that SPINEFREE® for your horse’s comfort and an optional one- or three- pocket CORRECTION® system are also available.

    Full lambskin lining - how about burgundy, cognac or ice blue?

    The MATTES Square Western pad is available in sizes S, M , L, XL and XXL. The width of the sides can also be altered to suit your needs. We recommend full lambskin lining in one of more than 30 different colours across the whole underside, but the Square Western pad is also available without the lambskin lining if you prefer. The leather parts are available in black, brown and champagne. The top band, binding and up to three rows of decorative piping are available in almost 50 colours. 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.

    MATTES uses high quality cotton/polyester blend quilted fabric. The Square Western 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 core of the Square Western 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 Square 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!

    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.
