I actually do have one just like that :) Not sure if it is exactly what I bought but pretty similar. It was a bit spendy but I love it... Not really sure what you want to know about it but I won't put anything else on Copper. He is one of those realy convenient horses that everything fits.... Just a little sarcasim lol... he is actually pretty tough to shop for. Semi bars are to narrow but full bars were just a bit to wide. So I bought that pad and just throw a blanket over it and hit full bar saddle fits beautifully. There is a woman at the barn that I got to get one to. Her horse fell awhile back and and every once in awhile a nerve pinches and she is all over the place to get you the heck off of her. Ever since this pad it isn't as bad... there are still some oh crap moments but she is definately a lot better.

Hope it helps :)

I don't own one, though I looked at them forever before I finally went with Supracor.

My trainer on the other hand, uses pretty much all CSI, and they're really nice pads. Very durable, and well made. For what you spend, they really are worth it. The flex plates, and removable liners, make for easy thickness adjustments as well.

I was the "bad influence" that talked one of my friends into one of these at Road to the Horse last year. SHE LOVES IT! THanks me all the time. I have a 5 star and love that, not quite as "spendy". Had a supracor for my english saddle, and really thought the wool was a bit flimsy to clean. I felt like I was cleaning a Kleenex. Sold it and haven't looked back.

I've never used or even seen one, so I can't help. But I can't bring myself to spend over $200 on a saddle pad. At $350 or more, I would rather invest that in a different saddle that would (hopefully) fit. But I can see the attraction. Saddle fitting is such a nightmare that a pad that promises to compensate seems like an easy fix. If you get it let us know if you love it. You might help the next person who is on the fence.

frank- Thanks a bunch for the comment it really helps!!ITs nice to hear she is just loving it! do you have one of your own? Or how did you influence her to buy one??

trailhorserider- its not my saddle thats the problem i just really want to have a good pad+ saddle to make it most comfortable for my horse, i just like the way it disperses the weight of the saddle with the flex pannels and how you can make it fit to more than one horse by removing/ adding the liners :) and its simple to clean ;D

She just didn't want to spend the $$, hemming and hawing.....we went back and forth at least 50 times while we were there.....finally-she was convinced. Got the leather trim too. It really is beautiful, and her horses love it. She got black with walnut tooled leather trim, matches her saddle perfectly. Looks gorgeous on her buttermilk buckskins. She has also had lots of issue with saddle fit-her horse is really wide and rather flat backed. Now it fits perfectly. That was the real selling pont, I think.

frank----Ohhh thats like the one i want!! The black with the brown leather trim im so jealous!! Thats really good to hear that it is working on her horse! Now you said her horse was hard to saddle fit, do you think it would work on a quarter pony (thats what i have) i do think he is fairly easy to find saddles for and i am currently saving for a new saddle before a saddle pad. And i will be taking him to the saddle shop and make sure the new saddle fits him correctly, with that being said is it still smart to purchace this pad if i new his saddle fit him? I know thats kind of alot haha
