CSI pads- how do they hold up? Good pad choice?


I have been researching pads for awhile now and I keep coming back to the csi pad. THey are pricey but they seem like they might be worth it. Anyone have experience with them?

I was at a horse expo recently where they had a pressure test where you put your hand under the flex plate and then pull a lever with a metal rod down on top of the pad as hard as you can and there was not one area that hurt or felt pinpointed pressure. Then I did the same test with other pads and it was uncomfortable and in some cases hurt. That kind of made me think it was worth it.

I am going to be working on a ranch this summer riding many diff horses. Some rides will be pretty long. I am going to hopefully be able to use my fqhb roping saddle on them but know a prefect fit is hard when you are using the same saddle on diff horses. I was thinking the csi pad would make the transition easier.

(Disclaimer: I know a pad is not the answer to an ill fitting saddle I am just thinking it could help alleviate any possible discomfort from a slight fit issue since I can not help the fact that I will be riding many diff horses. For horses that the saddle will absolutely not fit I will just have to use a guest saddle.)

So is the CSI pad a good pad for my situation?
