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.

Thanks to your saddle pad, Shoii's back stays cool and protected while we are out on our little "jaunts!" Being able to continue to explore the world means the world to my horse... and being able to provide him the padding he needs with your products, means the world to ME! Thanks so muc

I train cutting and reining horses. Both disciplines require a lot out of my horses, and I have never had a sore backed horse yet. I brought a few up for some clients of mine that are into western pleasure and roping, and they are as pleased as I am. In fact, I need to put in another order!

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.

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 love the 5 star pads. They are the only pads I use now. I have had some of the more so called popular pads but they do not compare to the 5star.. I will not use any different pad. I actually keep an extra in my trailer. Easy to clean and always looks nice.
