We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Instructions

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

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.

    5 Star All Around Pad for Low-Withers is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad! I've been researching wool pads for almost a year now. My horse has very low withers, short back and stout. I've bought 3 other pads and have not been happy with them. I love this pad, it fits him nicely and conforms to his back perfectly. I like to use an under pad just to keep this one cleaner. It works great w/my liner as well. I highly recommend 5 Star pads, plus they're made in the USA!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally... a pad that doesn't slip! I have a new mare with relatively low withers and was having a hard time finding a pad that fit her and didn't cause the saddle to slip when we were out trail riding up and down hills. This pad is perfect! Fits her well and I have no more issues with my saddle moving forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfort for horse & myself Nice construction - fits my Nakota Horse very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pad The 5 star pads fit well, stay in place and are great quality. I've used these pads for years. Worth the money! The shape of the pad sits perfect on a horse's back. So happy that smartpak now carries these great pads! As a hunter jumper rider who spends a lot of time in western tack, it's great to be able to really have a one stop shop. Trying the low wither version for some youngsters who don't have much of a wither and to work on our really round shouldered horses.
