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 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.
Absolutely love my two 5 star pads! One of my horses has a hard to fit back and the other is picky about what feels comfortable on her back. The 5 star pad has made my tricky to fit horse more comfortable in his saddle, and my picky horse isn't as cinchy or crabby anymore
I love your 5 Star Pads. Keep up the good work! My horses and I are depending on you.
I have sold a lot of pads to my customers and I hear a lot of "I really like my pad, I need to buy another one." The folks at 5 Star always stand behind their products and do what they say. The dealer education and information is excellent too.
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.
