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:
• 5 Star 3/4" X 30" X 28" The Barrel Racer
We are here for your horse!
I struggled with saddle fit with my mare for almost a year. After spending thousands of dollars trying to find a right saddle/saddle pad combo, I finally tried a 5 star and was immediately hooked. My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed.
I have sold a lot of pads to my customers and I hear a lot of "I really like my pad, I need to buy another one." The folks at 5 Star always stand behind their products and do what they say. The dealer education and information is excellent too.
I am very happy with your saddle pads. I now own three 5 star saddle. Your saddle pads have really made the horse industry a better place, now I can depend on your products to keep my horses from getting sore with all the strenuous activity they go through each summer and winter.
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.
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.
