Meet Hazlee McKenzie! She’s a 5 Star’s Reaching for the Stars team member! We are so proud to have such an accomplished young lady on our team!
Hazlee is the daughter of Jason and Tera McKenzie from Muldrow, OK. She has always loved animals from a young age. Her first horse was a miniature pony named "Trigger". She would ride and play with him every day. When her parents would go to a roping, they would put her in a pen with Trigger by the cattle where she could ride him and they didn't have to worry about her. She's been hooked since then! Hazlee's next horse was a Shetland pony named "Short Round". She has competed in shodeos, little jackpot barrel races in peewee, Little Britches Rodeos, and Junior Rodeos. She has now moved on from "Short Round" to other horses that she has had great success with events such as Open rodeos, CRRA, ACRA, IPRA rodes and the Oklahoma Junior High Rodeo Association. Hazlee's hobbies include playing softball, swimming, shooting archery, playing with her dogs, being outside, and of course riding horses!
Hazlee rides in the following products:
• 5 Star 3/4" X 30" X 28" The Barrel Racer
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 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.
I struggled with saddle fit with my mare for almost a year. After spending thousands of dollars trying to find a right saddle/saddle pad combo, I finally tried a 5 star and was immediately hooked. My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed.
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.
