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 love the 5 star pad because my horse is much more comfortable and he doesn't sweat as bad under the pad. It makes my saddle stay in position with no slipping and also I don't have to tighten my cinch as tight because it keeps the pressure more even.
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.
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.
I love your 5 Star Pads. Keep up the good work! My horses and I are depending on you.
It's very reassuring to know I paid for an excellent product that will last many many years. I will never use any other brand! If only I could get another to use at the same time on my other horse!
