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.

Pad Specifications:

  • 22 1/2" wide x 22 3/4" long
  • Colors: White, Natural, Black, Chocolate
  • Thickness: 1/4", 1/2", 3/4"

The pad that set the standard!

5 Star Experiences

Michele Watson

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.

Taylor McGivern

I LOVE (& highly recommend) my 5 star pad because they do not slip & are easily adjusted under a saddle. With the wither relief & contoured top line I know I can count on the perfect fit. I can ride with it in the show pen, a trail ride, or use in training with EASY cleaning just a few times a year.

Mariah Williams

I choose to use 5 Star pads exclusively because the comfort they provide is unbeatable. My horse looks forward to being ridden & remains happy, focused, & willing through the entire ride. It is unmatched in reliability, performance, & attractiveness. I'll be a lifelong customer & advocate for 5

Debbie Ackerman Hershey

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.

Tammy Johnson

I first decided to purchase a 5 star pad after hearing all of the awesome reviews on it and learning that they have the most virgin wool out of any other saddle pad on the market. I have ordered 3 pads and I am hooked! My horses stay comfortable whether it be during speed events or long trail rides.
