The extreme density of the carefully ed sheepskin provides extremely high sweat absorption and allows airflow for excellent circulation, superior padding and ideal pressure distribution.
E.A. Mattes pads are designed to be form fitting and to endure the rigors of riding and cleaning. The topline of the pad incorporates a high wither with an anatomically correct curvature. The pommel area of the pad is overlapped with sheepskin to ensure the pad does not shift or slide. There is no sheepskin over the spine to keep pressure off this area where it belongs.
