Meet Hazlee McKenzie! She’s a 5 Star’s Reaching for the Stars team member! We are so proud to have such an accomplished young lady on our team!
Hazlee is the daughter of Jason and Tera McKenzie from Muldrow, OK. She has always loved animals from a young age. Her first horse was a miniature pony named "Trigger". She would ride and play with him every day. When her parents would go to a roping, they would put her in a pen with Trigger by the cattle where she could ride him and they didn't have to worry about her. She's been hooked since then! Hazlee's next horse was a Shetland pony named "Short Round". She has competed in shodeos, little jackpot barrel races in peewee, Little Britches Rodeos, and Junior Rodeos. She has now moved on from "Short Round" to other horses that she has had great success with events such as Open rodeos, CRRA, ACRA, IPRA rodes and the Oklahoma Junior High Rodeo Association. Hazlee's hobbies include playing softball, swimming, shooting archery, playing with her dogs, being outside, and of course riding horses!
Hazlee rides in the following products:

We are here for your horse!
I love my 5 star pad! It is so soft and I feel has the best protection for my horse's back. We trail ride and barrel race in ours! My mare's back doesn't seem as hot and sweaty using our 5 star compared to other saddle pad's I have used. Only the best for my girl!
I chose 5 Star pads for my horses because wool felt is tried and true, the pads fit a variety of body styles including broad backs and high withers, and i have never seen a dry spot on any of my horses since switching to 5 Star pads years ago.
I love the 5 star pad because my horse is much more comfortable and he doesn't sweat as bad under the pad. It makes my saddle stay in position with no slipping and also I don't have to tighten my cinch as tight because it keeps the pressure more even.
I recommend your products to everyone I meet. I honesty will NEVER go back to using impact gel, because they made my horses sore and hindered their performance. Thanks for providing the horse industry with a pad they can trust for the next years to come.
I first decided to purchase a 5 star pad after hearing all of the awesome reviews on it and learning that they have the most virgin wool out of any other saddle pad on the market. I have ordered 3 pads and I am hooked! My horses stay comfortable whether it be during speed events or long trail rides.
