CSI Saddlepads Sports Line
The CSI Sports line fits a range of saddles for a range of different disciplines. The easiest way to determine which one you need is by measuring your saddle. The standard Sport Cut pad is available in 30 and 32 inch lengths (it actually measures 29 1/2 and 31 1/2 respectively). Most saddles that use this pad will use the smaller size EXCEPT TREELESS SADDLES which need a 32 inch length to compensate for the difference in contour (the CSI pad has a more dramatic contour than many treeless saddles, therefore, to fit properly, you will need to position your saddle further back on the pad and thus need a 32 inch length to compensate). The Small Sport Cut pad works great with smaller Australian saddles — especially saddles made by the Australian Stock Saddle Company.
Colors and Options
Our entire Western pad line is available in your choice of 30 or 32 inch lengths and with your choice of 1/2 or 3/4 inch replaceable all natural wool liner. The Small Sport Cut pad will measure 26 inches in length. See our Step by Step How To to determine which size(s) will best fit your needs.
CSI makes pads in black, brown, light brown, burgundy, blue and gray. Our standard wear leathers come in brown or black. Black wear leathers only look good on black pads but we will put them on blue and gray pads; they are not recommended for brown, light brown, or burgundy. Wear leather color wall vary from pad to pad because hide color varies from cow to cow.
All CSI Saddlepads are backed by a 30 day money back ride it and try it (so go get it dirty) guarantee PLUS a five year Flex-Plate and workmanship warranty. If the Flex-Plate should fail — or you find any other manufacturer defect — within five years of purchase we will repair or replace your pad free of charge.
