5 Star Team: Gerald Alexander

Gerald Alexander

Gerald Alexander grew up in Jonesboro, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana Tech University. He began training and showing for all kinds of events, including halter, pleasure, roping, and reining.Alexander says that his reining background continues to influence his methods today. In the early 1980s, Alexander switched to training cutting horses, specializing in starting 2-year-olds on cattle. Although he points out that a horse’s success has much to do with who finished and showed it, the list of show pen stars that started in his barn is impressive.Among Alexander’s greatest prospects were NCHA Futurity Champions Dainty Playgirl and San Tule Freckles, Reserve Futurity Champions Mr Beamon and Peptocandy, Derby Champion Sue, and Reserve Derby Champion Blue Duck Okie.During the past eight years, 15 horses that started with him have advanced to the Open Futurity finals, including five that made it in 2001.Alexander trains out of Silverado on the Brazos in Weatherford, Texas. He and his wife, Kaye, moved to Weatherford in 2005. Alexander noted that Kaye’s knowledge of training, along with her critical eye, has helped him succeed and played an important role in modifying his program. “She helped me figure this out,” he said. “She can see a world of stuff that you can’t feel. She could probably train one better than me. I’m real fortunate to have her.”

5 Star Experiences

Michele Watson

Love the 5 Star Pads, it's the only pad we've used that does not compress down and ensures us our horses are riding in comfort from barrels to trails.

Beth Leabo

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!

Thank you 5 star for making the best saddle pads ever I will never use another type pad.

Rachel Bromen

Absolutely love my two 5 star pads! One of my horses has a hard to fit back and the other is picky about what feels comfortable on her back. The 5 star pad has made my tricky to fit horse more comfortable in his saddle, and my picky horse isn't as cinchy or crabby anymore
