5 Star Team: Jackie Ganter

Jackie Ganter

Jackie Ganter has been a 5 Star Rider for the last 4 years. She is 21 years old and lives in Ailene, Texas. Jackie didn’t start out barrel racing. She rode English until she was about 12 yrs. old. She won every show she ever went to on her pony, Dixie, and she had to be retired so Jackie decided to start running barrels like her mom. “She had always ran barrels so I had the best trainer you could imagine.” Jackie is currently competeing on Cartles Fame, Frosted Shares, and Marthas Sixshooter. We asked Jackie how she mentally prepares herself for competition. She stated, "I try to stay relaxed and just focus on my horse and how i need to ride whichever horse I am running right then."


Jacke's TIP: Knowing your horse is the best thing you can do for them to keep them at the top of their game. Know when something is off and help them.

5 Star Experiences

Holly Manlove Anderson

I love my 5 star pad I bought one because of all the good reviews I have heard. I have owned my pad for 10 years and is still in great condition. I can take this pad from my barrel horses to my mules which are hard to get a saddle to fit right. I would recommend these pads to everyone.

Mandee Fetzer

I love my 5 star pad because it literally makes my horse smile! It is the only pad I have used that truly fits my horse's back. Elvis would rear up and become upset when I used my other pad.

Mandee Fetzer

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!

Beth Leabo

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!

I struggled with saddle fit with my mare for almost a year. After spending thousands of dollars trying to find a right saddle/saddle pad combo, I finally tried a 5 star and was immediately hooked. My mare is running harder, clocking better, and is overall happier and more relaxed.
