Stevi Hillman is 31 years old and lives in Weatherford, Texas. She has been using 5 Star products for 4 years. Stevi's favorite pad is the 7/8ths Barrel Racer. She is currently competing on Cuatro Fame AKA "Truck" and 11 year old bay gelding and Luv My Fame AKA "Layla" a 6 year old sorrel mare. Both horses are by Dash Ta Fame.We asked Stevi how she mentally prepares herself before competiion? She stated, "I spend quite time at my trailer getting my horse ready and visualize my run and how it feels. Thetn when I warm up, I try to stay relaxed. Not getting too serious and keep a composed focus...and enjoy it!"
Stevi's TIP: Keep your horse happy. That usually means Truck will get a massage the night before, even if we get somewhere at 1 AM! Know your horse, really know them.

I love your 5 Star Pads. Keep up the good work! My horses and I are depending on you.
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 two Five Star pads that I purchased for my barrel horse Popcorn. My old hand me down barrel saddle didn't fit correctly and he was sore in his back. The pad I purchased fixed the problem with my old saddle and made him very comfortable! They are beautifully made and very durable.
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 love the 5 star pad because my horse is much more comfortable and he doesn't sweat as bad under the pad. It makes my saddle stay in position with no slipping and also I don't have to tighten my cinch as tight because it keeps the pressure more even.
