"The Heroes and Horses program re-galvanizes our nation’s veterans, challenging them to rediscover who they are and what they can be moving forward. Heroes and Horses’ focus is not about what happened, but what can happen when one chooses to press on. By “challenging what challenges them,” Heroes and Horses provides veterans the chance to make peace with their past and replace devastating memories with positive ones." ~Heroes and Horses
5 Star Equine Products had the honor of hearing from an actual veteran whose life has been impacted in a positive way by the Heroes and Horses Program! What anhonor!
"Hello my name is Chris Alvarado I am a recent graduate of heroes and horses this past month and I wanted to personally thank you for donating gear to heroes and horses. I've never been around horses or any gear of that nature before but can contest your products really hold up and are a breeze to clean! I finished my time with heroes and horses and worked for an outfitter who didn't have any five star products and could definitely tell the difference between their pads they were using and raved to them how awesome your pads really are. Thank you again for donating and giving back to the veteran community, without companies like yours I couldn't experience life changing programs like heroes and horses. THANK YOU!"
We are here for your horse!
I first decided to purchase a 5 star pad after hearing all of the awesome reviews on it and learning that they have the most virgin wool out of any other saddle pad on the market. I have ordered 3 pads and I am hooked! My horses stay comfortable whether it be during speed events or long trail rides.
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 choose to use 5 Star pads exclusively because the comfort they provide is unbeatable. My horse looks forward to being ridden & remains happy, focused, & willing through the entire ride. It is unmatched in reliability, performance, & attractiveness. I'll be a lifelong customer & advocate for 5
I chose 5 Star pads for my horses because wool felt is tried and true, the pads fit a variety of body, and i have never seen a dry spot on any of my horses since switching to 5 Star pads years ago. The pads can be cleaned, and they are made to last! Great product that I highly recommend!
My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed. I refuse to use any other pad because without 5 star, my mare wouldn't be as near comfortable as she is today." ~Brittany Nice
