About Us

Welcome to 5 Star Equine Products, Inc.! We’re a family-owned and operated manufacturer of the world’s finest, all-natural saddle pads and mohair cinchas. 

 5 Star is owned and managed by Terry Moore and his family in Hatfield, Arkansas -- a small community in the heart of the beautiful Ouachita Mountains in the west-central side of the state.  Our employees make up a team of dedicated, hardworking individuals who care about producing the very best product possible for our customers.  

A fledgling saddle pad company was born in 1998, by Vern and Laurel Wells from Canada. It was known originally as Vern Wells Horseman products, then Wells 5 Star, and today as 5 Star Equine Products & Supplies, Inc. Although Vern’s passing soon after the company started was a difficult time, God’s providence brought the skills needed to grow the company in the shape of Mike Easton. Mike’s knowledge of wool, marketing, research, legal issues, and business development were what was needed. Mike developed 5 Star’s mission statement, and together with Laurel, they focused on procuring the finest quality materials, using the best workmanship, and providing customer service unequaled in the Equine industry. Shortly after joining their efforts for 5 Star, Mike and Laurel were married. The success of their pad inspired them to refine the design even further to improve conformation, movement, natural therapeutic comfort, strength and application.

Terry Moore bought the company in 2012, with the promise never to compromise on quality and to continue to build the finest saddle pads and cinchas in the equine world. We’re best known for our saddle pads, which are made from the highest-grade pressed industrial felt. Using nothing but 100% virgin wool, our saddle pads are developed using scientific research and intensive field testing to achieve the correct function, safety and benefit for your horse. We also manufacture a line of premium-quality cinches made from 100% mohair for ultimate comfort and a natural fit on horses, ponies and mules. Everything we make embodies the original values established by Vern and Laurel Wells back in 1998 and built upon by Mike and Laurel Easton. We’re committed to excellence in quality, craftsmanship and materials while maintaining the highest possible manufacturing standards to deliver the finest saddle blankets and cinches money can buy. And, we back our products with friendly, customer service that’s second to none. Our goal is nothing less than 110% satisfaction for both our customers and their equine partners!

5 Star Experiences

Brandy Higdon

Tenessee

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

Brandy Higdon

Tennessee

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.

Mariah Williams

I choose 5 Star pads exclusively because the comfort they provide the horse is unbeatable. I received excellent help from one of your dealers. She made me feel very informed and confident about my decision. The product is unmatched in reliability, performance, and attractiveness.

Jessica Rockett

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.

Holly Manlove Anderson

I love my 5 star pad I bought one because of all the good reviews I have heard. I have owned my pad for 10 years and is still in great condition. I can take this pad from my barrel horses to my mules which are hard to get a saddle to fit right. I would recommend these pads to everyone.
