Every feature of the CSI Saddlepad system is designed with your horse’s comfort and performance in mind. The system works with all types of saddles including traditional, flex panel and treeless saddles.
This in-pad plate increases the contact area of the bars. This spreads the pressure of the saddle and the rider’s weight out over a larger surface area which in turn reduces or eliminates pinch and pressure points. (With a treeless saddle, the CSI Flex-Plate actually provides you with a highly flexible weight and pressure distribution system that reduces soreness and fatigue.) But that’s not the only benefit of the CSI Flex-plate — it goes beyond just simple weight distribution and can actually can help your horse achieve a greater range of motion increasing their overall performance level because it works as an orthotic for the horse’s back.
