    Default Deliriously Amazing Mattes Fun!

    My apologies if everyone has already seen this: I haven't!

    I'm ordering a custom Mattes and struggling with imagining the color combos...someone posted about epshop.us, a German company that sells them for dirt cheap, and that lead me to ..........drum roll!!!












    The custom Matte's Pad Generator! I'm in love! And in the midst of finals week, so desperate for any possible way to procrastinate...

    ha thanks for posting this, I have been wanting to order a custom mattes pad but couldn't justify the cost if I couldn't actually see it before I ordered!

    So, that's going to be a problem for me.

    Those prices are incredible!

    OH. MY. GOD. I spent HOURS customizing my last saddlepad (nagrags.com). Mattes has more options and I want one bad. I need to NOT save this link to my favorites.

    well, maybe I'll save it and delete it later...

    Awesome! I want one for Christmas (present to myself) and have been trying to figure out what combination of colours to get. This will keep me occupied for the next six months.

    I got a black square one (wouldn't have done it except my mare was getting rubs where the back of the saddle pad is) and am obsessed now.

    I wonder if there is a way to post the colour combinations we come up with.

    I've been obsessed with the Euro Fit for XC (I dabble in Eventing) and I have two color combos, depending on which vest I use.

    1. Navy with silver sheep, Burgundy binding and Silver piping

    2. Hunter with natural sheep, Burgundy binding and Cream piping

    Picture those pads on my Liver Flaxen

    I only use sheepskin pads exclusively anyways. I school and show and ride in Engel pads with the sheepskin directly on the horse. LOVE those Mattes pads On my XMAS LIST

    EDIT: OMG they are sooo cheap on this site, too! This is the lowest price I've seen for these pads. Now I'm REALLY tempted!

    If only I had know about this a month ago!!

    I just got my black Mattes Correction half pad in the mail on Monday. I wish I had know about this before I ordered it. I do love the EuroFit pads, and they are a great price! My mare would sure look smashing in one out XC.

    GoForAGallop, I believe you are officially the 'enabler of the month'! However, it's so close to May, I think you are entitled to both April and May.

    I purchased Mattes pads from this company and did not have good luck with them. I ordered three pads (one for someone else) and only two arrived. They would not return my (multiple) inquiries about the missing pad until I finally had to take it up with Visa to get my refund. Then the contact person had the nerve to send me a snotty email about it. Nope.

    Nice, Fancy That!

    Mine would be for everyday (I'm a dressage rider) but having such nice colours would certainly be a treat... For show, I imagine you could put together something beautiful and subtle. I guess I'll have to win the lottery.

    The only thing missing at the site is the ability to paste a photo of your horse (or their colour) underneath so you can mix and match directly.

    Default someone photoshopped it onto my horse for me :)

    VS, you're right - that would be brilliant!

    We were talking about this on another forum, and a nice person actually photoshopped the custom Mattes pad onto my horse, Fancy!

    The pad looks a little small, proportionately, but isn't it fun???

    That's unfortunate to hear. But at those prices, I was willing to take a gamble! My CC company is fantastic about reversing charges if need be, so I feel protected.

    Default Has anyone else purchased from this site? Bad or Good Experience?

    Well BaxtersMom's experience has me worried about ordering from them. The price is soooooo much lower than anywhere else, so it is very tempting.

    Has ANYONE ELSE ordered from them? And what was your experience? I am really leery based on the below.....
