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!
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.
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!
I chose 5 Star pads for my horses because wool felt is tried and true, the pads fit a variety of body, and i have never seen a dry spot on any of my horses since switching to 5 Star pads years ago. The pads can be cleaned, and they are made to last! Great product that I highly recommend!
I searched for years to find a pad that would fit my mare. She has no withers. After getting my 5 star pad my mare stopped getting sore in her shoulders. I would recommend 5 star pads for any discipline of horse riding.
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."
