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

Ashley & Haley Janssen

Janssen Barrel Horses

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.

Megan O'Connor

Love my 5 stars!! My saddles fit so much better with the 5 stars than any other pads! They last forever the one in the photo is 10 years old and is just starting to show its wear n tear! I'd love a replacement!

Brandy Higdon


Thank you 5 star for making the best saddle pads ever I will never use another type pad.

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.

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.
