Ingredient Amount
Instructions for Use:
Care and Cleaning

  • Prevent dirt and hair build-up on the under side of pad by occasional brushing. This keep old hair from being pushed further into the pad and trapping dirt and sweat.
  • To remove embedded hair and dirt, rub a dry 5 Star cleaning sponge (which arrives with the purchase of every 5 Star saddle pad) in a circular motion on a dry pad.
  • For pads with heavy crusted sweat and dirt, break up area with rubber fingered curry or scrape gently with a dull edged object being careful to not cut the felt. Vacuum (with a shop vac) if possible, or use a brush to remove loose material.


Washing is only necessary if the pad is beginning to feel hard and form pressure points.

  • Use a small amount of soap that is safe for fine wool
  • Wash pad from the center to the outer edges. Hang/hold by gullet hole, runse from cetner of pad to outer edges, rotating the pad so that the water flows out towards the edges. Avoid laying the pad flat and rinsing as this will drive the dirt into the pad.
  • Wash/rinse lightly, using only enough water to dissolve the sweat and dirt residue. Hang by gullet hole of lay over a rail to dry. Avoid laying flat to dry.
  • Flex the pad once it is dry to restore the cushion.
30" x 30"

Two thickness options (3/4" or 7/8"). Best thickness is determined by personal preference, saddle fit, horse's discipline and workload, etc.

5 Star All Around Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve used this twice now on trails rides, and am fairly happy with it. It keeps part of my gelding’s back dry, but not all. I tried the sponge to remove some of the dirt. I don’t think it worked to well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pad ever! I've been looking for a pad that I could be perfectly happy with and have finally found it! It is lightweight and comfortable for my horse and she doesn't seem to sweat as much under it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I have a QH with a short back and high withers. The pad fits perfectly. No pressure points and no more acting bscksore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wears amazing I bought this pad for my hard to fit horse. It doesn't bunch up, stays put and is easy to clean. I love it . Going to buy another one soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well I tried several different pads on my 15.3 stocky QH with withers and a dippy back. This was definitely the best. It fit him better, and made the saddle fit the best. Unfortunately I can't comment on longevity because nothing could make that particular saddle fit well enough, and I had to send the Western saddle and pads back. But if I get another Western saddle, I will order a Five Star pad. The better quality seems worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This really fits my short backed horse. I have several saddle pads. This is the pad that finally fits! I would buy one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never buy another pad! 5 Star saddle pads are the best pad out there. They are soft to the touch and my horse loves them. You can buy them in all shapes and sizes! Even for English saddles. I will never buy a different brand. It is worth the investment.

Date published: 2016-04-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I read all the reviews and just couldn't bring myself to shell out that kind of money for the saddle pad. Finally, I did and it ended up being one of the best investments for my horse ever! If you are any type of rider, get this pad. It seriously does all it says and more. Love the 7/8 thickness for some serious riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Standard Pad This is my second pad. I like the thickness. It is 100% wool. Wears well and cushions the horse's back. Made in the U.S. A. Can be a little large, but depends upon the length of the horse's back. I use one on an Arabian that has a longer back and the other Arabian has a short back. Both horses do not appear to have any issues with these pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pad I just started using this pad about a month ago & so far love it. I love the fact that I don't have to tighten my saddle as tight as I did with other pads.
Date published: 2015-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I absolutely love these pads. I love the quality and how easy they are to clean. These pads last forever, but I definitely know what I will be buying when I am in the market again!
Date published: 2015-06-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! It is a quality made product. My 6 yr.old APHA gelding has responded well to the product. I do western dressage and pleasure shows with him. It forms to his body and with the 7/8 in. I can easily fit a show blanket over it. It molds to him and is easy to clean. It is pricey but you get what you pay for.
Date published: 2015-02-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wanted a 1" pad and was hoping the 7/8 would work. There is a huge difference. This seemed to measure closer to 3/4. It looked like a really nice pad. I ordered a 1" 5 star pad from some place else and it will work. This is no reflection on smartpak or the product, it was just not what I needed.
Date published: 2015-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second pad I bought my first pad in early 2000, I left it behind for a friend in 2012 she is still using it. I made a mistake and purchased a gel type pad not good here in the desert when you ride 2 hrs every other day. I could not wait to get my 5 star back and it is true you do not need to cinch up as tight. Stay on top of brushing your pad off with sponge and it will last for years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars are great!! Quality made in America pad. Haven't had it very long but already my mare is moving more freely under saddle. I probably should have ordered a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality workmanship I was looking for a pad that would give good support to my saddle, and be comfortable on my horse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 5 Star Product Line: Western, Dressage.. I have a 5 star western, dressage, jumping, and all purpose pad. They are great at absorbing pressure points, sweat, and best of all: They help stop saddles from slipping! Smartpak - Consider the All Purpose please!
Date published: 2014-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from all natural This is my second 5 Star pad. I did much research over a yr ago when I purchased my first 5 star. I love the way it fits my horses. Keeps their back cool and comfortable. This is the only pad I will buy from now on. I have tried several different very well know pads but will stick to the 5 Star.. Have two friends hooked as well. Its back to the basics!!!!
