I won't use anything except my CSI pad I love it. I've used classic equines ESP, the biofit, air rides, 5 star. But CSI is my top pick!
I use a classic equine 2 inch think wool pad. The impact gels are also very nice.
I have a 32x32" Impact Gel pad that I use. I also have a 28x28" Diamond Wool Cowboy Series pad that I love as well.
5 star pads are my favorite!
I think 'best ever pads' are great! So many options for different horses and disciplines and 100% customizable!
