We've all had that horse that is hard to fit with the right pad. If you have that horse, try our CSI pads with its patented Flex-Plate. The Flex-Plate increases the contact area of the bars of your saddle spreading the pressure of the saddle and also the rider's weight over a larger surface area. This in turn reduces or eliminates pinch and pressure points. The pad's 2 1/2" contour provides wither relief and is especially beneficial on horses with high withers and older horses who are hollowed out under their withers.
