5 Star Equine Products,
I bought my first 5 Star pad over 15 years ago. I have had several over the years. In fact when I took it to the factory I was told it was one of the very first hand made models because of the gullet size.
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. I thought I knew that, but when I started as a dealer I was even more convinced.
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."
I tell my customer this is the best investment you can make for your horse. This is the best wearing, best fitting pad on the market. Made in America. 100% Virgin Wool.
The folks at 5 Star always stand behind their products and do what they say. The dealer education and information is excellent too.

Hello 5 Star Equine,
I am very happy with your saddle pads. I rode with Impact Gel pads for 4 years, up until I found your pads. I now own three 5 star saddle pads and I have since sold all my impact gel pads. 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. I recommend your products to everyone I meet. I honesty will NEVER go back to using impact gel, because they made my horses sore and hindered their performance. Thanks for providing the horse industry with a pad they can trust for the next years to come.

5 Star Equine Products,
I am just sending you a quick note to let you know how much I love your 5 Star Pads. I have been using them on my colts and show horses for about 7 years now. I train cutting horses and just started into reining horses. Both disciplines require a lot out of my horses, and I have never had a sore backed horse yet. I brought a few up for some clients of mine that are into western pleasure and roping, and they are as pleased as I am. In fact, I need to put in another order! Keep up the good work! My horses and I are depending on you.

I love my 5 Stars! I've used them for several years and they're the only pads I keep in my barn now. You'll be hard-pressed to find a better fitting and constructed wool pad on the market. I have one pad that I've used almost daily for 7 years now and it's still going strong.
I love my 5 star pad I bought one because of all the good reviews I have heard. I have owned my pad for 10 years and is still in great condition. I can take this pad from my barrel horses to my mules which are hard to get a saddle to fit right. I would recommend these pads to everyone.
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 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!
Thanks to your saddle pad, Shoii's back stays cool and protected while we are out on our little "jaunts!" Being able to continue to explore the world means the world to my horse... and being able to provide him the padding he needs with your products, means the world to ME! Thanks so muc
