"The Heroes and Horses program re-galvanizes our nation’s veterans, challenging them to rediscover who they are and what they can be moving forward. Heroes and Horses’ focus is not about what happened, but what can happen when one chooses to press on. By “challenging what challenges them,” Heroes and Horses provides veterans the chance to make peace with their past and replace devastating memories with positive ones." ~Heroes and Horses
5 Star Equine Products had the honor of hearing from an actual veteran whose life has been impacted in a positive way by the Heroes and Horses Program! What anhonor!
"Hello my name is Chris Alvarado I am a recent graduate of heroes and horses this past month and I wanted to personally thank you for donating gear to heroes and horses. I've never been around horses or any gear of that nature before but can contest your products really hold up and are a breeze to clean! I finished my time with heroes and horses and worked for an outfitter who didn't have any five star products and could definitely tell the difference between their pads they were using and raved to them how awesome your pads really are. Thank you again for donating and giving back to the veteran community, without companies like yours I couldn't experience life changing programs like heroes and horses. THANK YOU!"
We are here for your horse!
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.
My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed. I refuse to use any other pad because without 5 star, my mare wouldn't be as near comfortable as she is today." ~Brittany Nice
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.
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.
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.
