Description
 

The ultimate in technology has finally revolutionized the equine industry with the CSI Flex Plate System: The flex plate has withstood the test of time and use. CSI test pads are now nearing 15,000 hours of hard riding at the Lower Snake River Cattle Ranch at the base of the Teton in Wilson, WY. Our pads are also tested at a busy Texas feedlot and by a host of clinicians and professional horsemen from coast to coast. Plus, there are numerous competition and trail riders that absolutely swear by this pad. The unique design of the flex plate will reduce or eliminate common saddle fit issue. Because of the three overlapping layers of a very strong polycarbonate material (10,000 psi tensile strength), it simply will not allow any pressure points to radiate into the horse. This design allows for even distribution of the riders weight, saddle tree pressure and any type of impact, including roping. The flex plate increases the range of motion and the overall comfort for the horse. The flex plate also creates a foundation for the saddle bars to rest on, creating more stability, allowing the rider to feel more secure.

The contour is built into the pad; when it is pulled up into the saddle gullet it will remain in that position during the entire ride. It will not work down and apply pressure across the wither. Because of the foundation that the flex plate creates there will be no pressure applied to the spine. You will usually have even sweat every where except down the spine of the horse. The contour and the vent holes allow for good air flow.

The outer shell is marine grade automotive carpeting backed with felt. The Flex Plate is sewn in between the layers. Available colors are black, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, blue, and gray. Wear leathers are available in black or brown, The leather weight is 6 ounce. .

A cut out for latigo and off billet help to keep everything under your leg neat and reduces bulk.

Our 100% All Natural Wool Felt inserts are made from a high quality, high density wool and are needled versus pressed during the felting process. This means what touches your horse is never subjected to harsh chemical processes! The removable inserts are offered in different thickness: 1/2 inch for the round backed or over weight horses and our 3/4 inch is the most versatile.

The Show Cut version of our Western Saddlepad is completely concealable under a standard Navajo blanket.

Reviewer: Karen Lehman  
Original Review Date: 05/11/2010 12:16pm - I did a lot of research before I bought this pad and I can't say how much I love it. The difference really is amazing; my horse has a short back and I just could not seem to find a saddle that did not pinch his shoulders. I have no more problem with soreness and this pad is worth every penny. I would not hesitate to buy another one. Sold all my other pads and only own CSI now.

Original Review Date: 09/28/2010 05:42pm - I have not yet bought my pad, waiting to have the extra cash but borrow a friends' alot. She got me into these pads and they are truely worth every penny!! I used one on one of her geldings that has a sensative back and used the wrong saddle with him that normally would make him turn into a bronc but I never had him buck once! I'm glad someone took the effort and time to design this pad. You're truely an awesome woman :)

Original Review Date: 12/26/2012 02:20pm - I bought my first CSI Saddlepad after visiting their booth at the Road To The Horse in 2010. When it arrived that following weekend I went on a 6 hour ride on my mutton whitered foundation quarterhorse. I kept looking down at his shoulder and whiters and was in awe at the freedom of movement and that even while sitting on the saddle the pad never pulled down on my horses whiters. I am buying my second saddle pad so I don't have to keep swapping it out for my other quarterhorse. They are not cheap but they pay for themself in one trail ride. If you get a chance stop at one of CSI Booth's and try out the pressure demo on your hand; there is no turning back.

Original Review Date: 04/28/2008 03:12pm - I love my CSI Flex-Plate pad. The difference really is amazing. I'm a heavy rider and I worry about my horse's back health a lot. The CSI pad has really helped keep my horse sound, even when riding over rough terrain or for long hours. It is well worth the money.

Reviewer: Deanna  
Original Review Date: 04/25/2010 08:42pm - I wish I had bought my CSI pad when I first was researching them rather than waiting and buying the equivalent dollars worth of other ones. My saddle isn't what everyone would call a "perfect" fit, but it's as close as I've been able to get so far. The CSI pad made a world of difference on my Gelding. He's free moving now when working on the flat and we can trail ride for over 4 hours without him getting sore and grumpy. I was nervous about ordering online and from the USA as I'm in Canada but Kim put my mind at ease with her knowledge and helpfulness thru many emails and photos. I highly recommend these pads, I'll never use another brand again. When you price them out and what they achieve, the CSI is well worth the dollars! Thank you so much.
