5 Star Experiences

My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed. I refuse to use any other pad because without 5 star, my mare wouldn't be as near comfortable as she is today." ~Brittany 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!

My Husband recently bought me a 5 Star saddle pad for Christmas. I could tell as soon as I pulled it out the box it was very different from any other saddle pads I had purchased. A good different!! I'm anxiously awaiting to buy me a liner to start riding it! Thank you 5 star for my Christmas!

I chose 5 Star pads for my horses because wool felt is tried and true, the pads fit a variety of body, and i have never seen a dry spot on any of my horses since switching to 5 Star pads years ago. The pads can be cleaned, and they are made to last! Great product that I highly recommend!

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!
