5 Star Wool Saddle Pad
7/8 "thick" Full Skirt, natural color
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: 5 Star Wool Saddle Pad
Model: 7/8 "thick" Full Skirt, natural color
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I purchased this pad from Flynns Saddle Shop. With shipping/handling the price came to about $180. Excellent customer service and very fast shipping

Likes: I love the quality of the product. Extremely well made and nice thick leather along the spine and fender areas of the pad. The wool is very well packed and you can tell it is high quality. Used on many 15-20 mile trail rides and soaks up sweat very well and cleans up easily.

Dislikes: Make sure you purchase the correct thickness for your riding. I actually got the 7/8 "thick" size because it was recommended for long trail rides, heavy riding. I found that it actually caused dry spots because it was TOO thick. I had to sell this one on eBay (received most of my money back, $160) and was able to purchase the 3/4 "regular" size and it was perfect.

Quality: It is made very well. This pad is heavily used and still looks new after miles of rides. The seems are tight and the leather is thick and sewn in really well.

Summary: I would highly recommend this pad, just make sure that you take care to choose the correct size thickness for your means. The wool is so pressed that it could possibly cause dry spots even if your saddle fits correctly. It is a bit expensive, but you always pay good money for quality products. Plus it is made in America, so the money comes back to our economy!
