5 Star recommends 1" - 2" of pad showing around the perimeter of your saddle. Measure your saddle before ordering for proper fit.
5 Star uses high quality real leather for the basic, stamped, hair on and printed wear leathers. Due to the nature of leather, variances in color, pattern and style can occur with each hide. The swatches and photos of our wear leathers are only a close representation of the actual leather. We cannot guarantee the cut of our patterned leathers as no two will be the same. If you have any questions or concerns, call us at 870-389-6328 prior to ordering.
We are here for your horse!
I have two Five Star pads that I purchased for my barrel horse Popcorn. My old hand me down barrel saddle didn't fit correctly and he was sore in his back. The pad I purchased fixed the problem with my old saddle and made him very comfortable! They are beautifully made and very durable.
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.
Absolutely love my two 5 star pads! One of my horses has a hard to fit back and the other is picky about what feels comfortable on her back. The 5 star pad has made my tricky to fit horse more comfortable in his saddle, and my picky horse isn't as cinchy or crabby anymore
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.
