The Half Pad

Description

5 Star Half Pad (1/4, 1/2)

5 Star’s Half Pad is designed to be used over your daily pad and under your saddle. Our raised wither profile accommodates even the sharpest of withers. Our customizable spine leather marries the contoured 100% Virgin Wool Felt for impeccable saddle fit and maximum protection for both horse and rider’s backs during training and showing. It’s ideal for off the rack, semi-custom, and custom saddles and gives ideal shock absorption positively influencing rider feel and saddle fit. This added shock absorption improves the horse’s comfort, general way of going as well, and the rider’s equitation. Our 100% pure virgin wool felt wicks away moisture, cleans up easily, and provides non-slip properties for maximum stability. Our pads are durable with many still in use after 15+ years! Hand-made in the USA! Do not machine wash.

The pad that set the standard!

5 Star Experiences

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.

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.

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 had my saddle taken in to check fit and they recommended your company. This contoured his back so well it improved how my saddle fit his back. We haven't had problems since! I love that I got to customize my pad making it unique to me. Thanks for making such a quality product!
