5 Star Pads are available with optional cutouts. The Cinch Cutout is available with the mule or horse contour and allows for the wool in only the cinch area to be cutout, and the Leg Cutout allows for both the leg and cinch area to be cutout for closer contact. The Flex Fit Cutout in the wither area elimates pressure on high withered horses. The Extreme Mule Back Cutout is perfect for creating a relief area that will eliminate top pressure of the pad on extreme mule backs. The Slit Gullet is a great option for mules and flat backed horses. The No Gullet Hole option continues the contour up and over the wither area. It is a great option for high withered horses.

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.
I love the 5 star pads. They are the only pads I use now. I have had some of the more so called popular pads but they do not compare to the 5star.. I will not use any different pad. I actually keep an extra in my trailer. Easy to clean and always looks nice.
The 5 star pad conforms great to my horses back and gives much needed relief on his withers. I love how soft but very durable they are and they are so easy to clean. I had tried other types of felt pads but he was very unhappy and as soon as I put this one on he's very comfortable and relaxed.
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 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.
