The pad that set the standard!
I train cutting and reining horses. Both disciplines require a lot out of my horses, and I have never had a sore backed horse yet. I brought a few up for some clients of mine that are into western pleasure and roping, and they are as pleased as I am. In fact, I need to put in another order!
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."
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.
I love my 5 star pad because it literally makes my horse smile! It is the only pad I have used that truly fits my horse's back. Elvis would rear up and become upset when I used my other pad.
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.
