What size Mattes half pad do you buy - for a 17" saddle?
Med or large? Seems like it should be a medium but a lot of people buy large, I think.
I bought a medium for my 16 1/2" and have some spare room.

Are you buying in person or on line? I have an 18 inch saddle and have a large and an extra large that seem to be the same size and fit the saddle well. If buying on line ask someone to measure the pad for you to make sure it is true to size.
I think a medium would work for you though.
I had the same worry when buying for my 17'' saddle. I went with a medium and it fits perfectly!
I would go with the medium. I used a large with a 17" saddle this summer and there was a little too much room.
I use medium Mattes pads with my 17" saddle. Perfect fit. I have the pads that don't have the fleece roll at the cantle end.
Great. Thanks, all, for the help !
I have a 17" and a 17.5" saddle and the medium fits them both just fine.
