5 Star Pads are available with optional cutouts. The Cinch Cutout is available with the mule or horse contour and allows for the wool in only the cinch area to be cutout, and the Leg Cutout allows for both the leg and cinch area to be cutout for closer contact. The Flex Fit Cutout in the wither area elimates pressure on high withered horses. The Extreme Mule Back Cutout is perfect for creating a relief area that will eliminate top pressure of the pad on extreme mule backs. The Slit Gullet is a great option for mules and flat backed horses. The No Gullet Hole option continues the contour up and over the wither area. It is a great option for high withered horses.

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 don't have a 5 star pad, but I've always wanted one! I've heard only great things about them. My 4 year old gelding is my barrel, rope, trail, and ranch horse.
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.
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 bought my first 5 Star pad over 15 years ago. I have had several over the years. When I started looking to replace it and become a dealer I inquired to everyone I could about what was the finest saddle pad made. I always heard about this little outfit in Arkansas called 5 Star.
