5 Star recommends 1" - 2" of pad showing around the perimeter of your saddle. Measure your saddle before ordering for proper fit. It is acceptable to have more width than length around the perimeter of your saddle skirting.
5 Star uses high quality real leather for the basic, stamped, hair on and printed wear leathers. Due to the nature of leather, variances in color, pattern and style can occur with each hide. The swatches and photos of our wear leathers are only a close representation of the actual leather. We cannot guarantee the cut of our patterned leathers as no two will be the same. If you have any questions or concerns, call us at 870-389-6328 prior to ordering.
The pad that set the standard!
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 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!
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 don't have a 5 star pad, but I've always wanted one! I've heard only great things about them. My 4 year old gelding is my barrel, rope, trail, and ranch 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.
