5 Star Experiences

Megan O'Connor

Love my 5 stars!! My saddles fit so much better with the 5 stars than any other pads! They last forever the one in the photo is 10 years old and is just starting to show its wear n tear! I'd love a replacement!

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

Taylor McGivern

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!

Tink Thran

I love the 5 star pads. They are the only pads I use now. I have had some of the more so called popular pads but they do not compare to the 5star.. I will not use any different pad. I actually keep an extra in my trailer. Easy to clean and always looks nice.

Bre Curtis

I do not have a 5 star pad. I've looked at them every year at congress but never have been able to get one. My mare is picky, so I want to get what's best for her & to make her feel comfortable while running. I have heard so many great things about the 5 star pad & would love to have one!
