A extremely popular design created by one of our lovely customers and named in her honour, the 'Annalee'. We literally sold cartons of this colour combination when it was posted in social media!
This colour combination is slate velvet, grey binding, bonbon, rose and violet piping. The top tape is black and the girth velcro is grey. The Mattes logo is on both sides and is rose. This saddle pad has full sheepskin including front and rear trim on top and underside panels presented in rose.
These are custom order items, therefore are NOT in stock.

Saddle Pad Quilt
High quality twill fabric, also used to produce heavy duty work clothing.
The inside is a double laminate of POLYFLEX® (deep needled polyester felt) and polyester wadding.
The 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 lumpy and it does not turn limp. Thus excellent washing and drying properties. Even after many washings no breaking of the laminate along the seams. Anatomical correct shape, high wither cut, hence no pressure in the wither area.
Saddle Pad Velvet
All MATTES saddle-pads are now available in MATTES-velvet material.
The new velvet material is made specifically for us, from high quality Polyester material according to our high quality requirements, where the velvet fibre is an especially structured lustrous fibre to give the material that beautiful glossy velvet look.
This velvet is also very light and wash resistant (considerably better than cotton) and is more durable than normal velvet.
The soft upper padding is about double the volume than our normal pads, which gives it the quilting this beautifully raised surface structure.
The POLY-FLEX® layer prevents amongst others the deformation of the pad, like all MATTES pads.
The backing is polyester velour, preventing friction and chaffing of the horses skin with it’s upright standing fibres.
Saddle Fix System
Safe and quick Fastener-System, the ideal improvement to perfect the use of all our SPINE-FREE® and especially our CORRECTION®-System-Saddle-Pads.The Centre of the Pad is lodged high up in the gullet to allow complete freedom for the spine.
For accurate fastening of combinations of our sheepskin half pads with under-pad or top-pad. No alteration necessary on saddle. Adjustable for all saddle-sizes.
Our SPINEFREE® design prevents any pressure in the wither area and along the spine. Combined with our SADDLE-FIX® fasteners it guarantees the exact
positioning of the pad. Specifically when combining MATTES®-Sheepskin-Half-Pads with our QUILT ONLY Pads, as top pad or under pad. All our saddle-pads are made SPINEFREE®
Washing & Care Instructions
Each Mattes product comes with detailed washing and care instructions attached. For optimum life and use of your Mattes product please follow these instructions. If any questions please get in touch with NextGen Equine.
There is a possibility of dye bleeding from dark or bright coloured sheepskin onto light coloured quilt. A slight staining is possible from dark or bright coloured wool onto the hair of light coloured horses. Fading of the wools surface is also possible 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.
