5 Star Team: Lexee Jo Barvian

High School Reaching for the Stars Team Rider

My name is Lexee Jo Barvian, and I'm a 17 year old high school senior from Attica, NY. I am an avid barrel racer in APRA, IPRA and NHSRA Rodeos in addition to other barrel racing productions but my mail "gig" is a professional trick rider. I am a contracted act with some of the largest APRA/IPRA rodeos in the North East such as Attica, NY, Elicottville, NY, North Washington, PA, Benton, PA and many more. I have been a huge fan of 5 Star since 2016, when a friend introduced me to your saddle pads when my trick horse, Kutter, started getting sore backed from the workload he was undergoing. We had tried every name brand that you can think of, but the only thing that we found that kept him content was a 5 Star Pad. Since then, that's all we use when I strap in.

Career Highlights

  • ARSA 1D Barrel Racing Champion

5 Star Experiences

Bre Curtis

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!

Taylor McGivern

I LOVE (& highly recommend) my 5 star pad because they do not slip & are easily adjusted under a saddle. With the wither relief & contoured top line I know I can count on the perfect fit. I can ride with it in the show pen, a trail ride, or use in training with EASY cleaning just a few times a year.

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.

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 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.
