EA Mattes Fellsattel Information

Make no mistake, this is not a bareback pad!

There really is no limit to the Mattes Fellsattel colour combinations! Make no mistake, this is NOT A BAREBACK PAD, this is a saddle suitable for long distance riding. Comes as a package: Saddle, Base Support (section between the sheepskin and the saddle pad which gives full wither and spinal clearance like a conventional saddle) and the Saddle Pad which is available in 10 different designs: 4 Western, 2 Spanish and 4 English. The Mattes Saddle is also available in 4 seat sizes. The saddles have 8 D rings to tie all your trail gear to or to attach a Breastplate to if need be.

FELLSATTEL MODELS

Only the pad shape changes, the Fellsattel itself, remains exactly the same regardless of model chosen.

There are 6 English/Spanish pad models to choose from and 4 Western Pad models. It is important to know that the Western pads are 8 cm longer than the English and Spanish pads. The Cob Fellsattel is also 8 cm shorter than the Full Fellsattel. Both the Mattes English Leathers and Western Fenders, can be used on all models.

 

FAQ's

DOES THE FELLSATTEL HAVE A RIDER WEIGHT LIMIT?

No. However the Cob sized Fellsattel does have a limit recommendation of 70-80 kilos. This is why there is not an XL seat size in the Cob model. We also subscribe to the generally accepted rider:horse weight ration of 20% and under. So if your horse weighs 500 kilos, the rider and tack should not weigh more than 100 kilos. This is for a balanced rider, the ratio should be less for beginner riders.

CAN I RIDE LONG DISTANCES IN THE MATTES FELLSATTEL?

Yes you most certainly can! We have Endurance riders as Fellsattel customers. The uniquie internal flexible structure, which Mattes call a 'tunnel', allows for total spinal clearance for the horse. This means that you can ride in the Fellsattel for as long as you would consider riding in a treed saddle. There is no chance of stirrup bar pressure either as the closed stirrup D's are located on top of the tunnel. The Mattes Fellsattel is a popular choice for trail riders due to the above and that it offers mcuh greater security when compared to an English saddle.
