We are here for your horse!
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.
In 2009, Shoii shattered the knee joint of his right hind leg, rendering unable to flex the joint once it healed. Although his body was a little beat-up, his heart certainly was not and I could tell that it was still very important to him to "take me out for a ride."
I love my 5 star pad because it literally makes my horse smile! It is the only pad I have used that truly fits my horse's back. Elvis would rear up and become upset when I used my other pad.
It's very reassuring to know I paid for an excellent product that will last many many years. I will never use any other brand! If only I could get another to use at the same time on my other horse!
The 5 star pad conforms great to my horses back and gives much needed relief on his withers. I love how soft but very durable they are and they are so easy to clean. I had tried other types of felt pads but he was very unhappy and as soon as I put this one on he's very comfortable and relaxed.
