5 Star Saddle Pad
7/8" Contour Pad
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: 5 Star Saddle Pad
Model: 7/8" Contour Pad
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I PURCHASED A 7/8" 5 STAR SADDLE PAD FROM A PRIOR OWNER ON EBAY FOR $115. MY HORSE WAS SHOWING WHITE HAIRS ON ONE SIDE OF HIS WITHERS AFTER EXTENSIVE TRAIL RIDING OVER THE SUMMER. I WAS LOOKING FOR A PAD THAT PROVIDED ADEQUATE AND EVEN PROTECTION OF HIS WITHERS. HE IS A QUARTER HORSE WITH SOMEWHAT HIGH WITHERS, A FLAT BACK, AND A LITTLE HIGHER IN THE RUMP THAN THE WITHERS.

Likes: THE PAD SETTLED ONTO MY HORSE'S BACK VERY WELL, ESPECIALLY AROUND HIS WITHERS. THE CUTOUT IS PERFECT FOR ITS LOCATION IN RELATION TO HIS WITHERS AND THE SADDLE GULLET. THE PAD CONFORMED TO HIS BACK LIKE NO OTHER PAD I TRIED - AND I TRIED ALOT. I DON'T HAVE TO CINCH AS TIGHTLY TO KEEP MY SADDLE IN PLACE AND IT WICKS AWAY THE SWEAT VERY WELL. I NOTICED AN IMMEDIATE DIFFERENCE IN THE WAY MY HORSE MOVED AND THE WHITE HAIRS DISAPPEARED AFTER ONLY A FEW MONTHS.

Dislikes: MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THE COST.

Quality: THE PAD IS SOFT TO THE TOUCH AND SEEMS TO BE VERY COMFORTABLE FOR THE HORSE. IT GETS ALMOST DAILY USE AND HAS BEEN USED IN AN ARENA AND ON A HILLY TRAIL. IT CLEANS UP EASILY AND HAS MAINTAINED ITS SHAPE VERY WELL. ITS CONSTRUCTION IS SUCH THAT IT SEEMS TO WORK SIMILAR TO A BOUNCE PAD IN PROVIDING CUSHIONING FOR THE HORSE AND RIDER. I BELIEVE IT WILL CONFORM TO THE BACK OF ALMOST ANY HORSE.

Summary: IT'S AN EXPENSIVE PAD, BUT WORTH IT IF MY HORSE IS COMFORTABLE. I PROBABLY WILL NOT USE ANY OTHER. I HAVE AN ENGLISH SADDLE AND PURCHASED AN ENGLISH VERSION OF THE PAD, TOO - WITH THE SAME, POSITIVE RESULTS.
