5 Star Team: Jackie Ganter

Jackie Ganter

Jackie Ganter has been a 5 Star Rider for the last 4 years. She is 21 years old and lives in Ailene, Texas. Jackie didn’t start out barrel racing. She rode English until she was about 12 yrs. old. She won every show she ever went to on her pony, Dixie, and she had to be retired so Jackie decided to start running barrels like her mom. “She had always ran barrels so I had the best trainer you could imagine.” Jackie is currently competeing on Cartles Fame, Frosted Shares, and Marthas Sixshooter. We asked Jackie how she mentally prepares herself for competition. She stated, "I try to stay relaxed and just focus on my horse and how i need to ride whichever horse I am running right then."


Jacke's TIP: Knowing your horse is the best thing you can do for them to keep them at the top of their game. Know when something is off and help them.

5 Star Experiences

Oak Point, TX

I have sold a lot of pads to my customers and I hear a lot of "I really like my pad, I need to buy another one." The folks at 5 Star always stand behind their products and do what they say. The dealer education and information is excellent too.

Mandee Fetzer

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!

I bought my first 5 Star pad over 15 years ago. I have had several over the years. When I started looking to replace it and become a dealer I inquired to everyone I could about what was the finest saddle pad made. I always heard about this little outfit in Arkansas called 5 Star.

Tiffany Cox

When I was able to purchase a new saddle I bought another Five Star pad because I was so impressed with them. They are beautifully made and very durable. I absolutely love these pads!!!

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.
