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'!).

Why We Love This

The cut of the pad is specifically designed for horses with flatter or lower withers, thicker shoulders, and flatter backs who experience difficulties with saddle and saddle pad fit due to their conformation.

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 Performer Pad for Low-Withers is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Wool Felt Pad Deserving of its Name 5 Star Full Skirt pad is truly worth it's name ... 5 Stars. This pad is a great size to go under my square skirted saddle. There's enough on each side of the pad to make sure the pad is well fitted and dissipating pressure. It's a soft wool but well made. I'll buy more of these as I need them.
