Gerald Alexander grew up in Jonesboro, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana Tech University. He began training and showing for all kinds of events, including halter, pleasure, roping, and reining.Alexander says that his reining background continues to influence his methods today. In the early 1980s, Alexander switched to training cutting horses, specializing in starting 2-year-olds on cattle. Although he points out that a horse’s success has much to do with who finished and showed it, the list of show pen stars that started in his barn is impressive.Among Alexander’s greatest prospects were NCHA Futurity Champions Dainty Playgirl and San Tule Freckles, Reserve Futurity Champions Mr Beamon and Peptocandy, Derby Champion Sue, and Reserve Derby Champion Blue Duck Okie.During the past eight years, 15 horses that started with him have advanced to the Open Futurity finals, including five that made it in 2001.Alexander trains out of Silverado on the Brazos in Weatherford, Texas. He and his wife, Kaye, moved to Weatherford in 2005. Alexander noted that Kaye’s knowledge of training, along with her critical eye, has helped him succeed and played an important role in modifying his program. “She helped me figure this out,” he said. “She can see a world of stuff that you can’t feel. She could probably train one better than me. I’m real fortunate to have her.”
We are here for your horse!
I had my saddle taken in to check fit and they recommended your company. This contoured his back so well it improved how my saddle fit his back. We haven't had problems since! I love that I got to customize my pad making it unique to me. Thanks for making such a quality product!
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!
I recommend your products to everyone I meet. I honesty will NEVER go back to using impact gel, because they made my horses sore and hindered their performance. Thanks for providing the horse industry with a pad they can trust for the next years to come.
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!
I love my 5 star pad! It is so soft and I feel has the best protection for my horse's back. We trail ride and barrel race in ours! My mare's back doesn't seem as hot and sweaty using our 5 star compared to other saddle pad's I have used. Only the best for my girl!
