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

Built to last, this saddle pad is an investment in your horse's comfort. It contains 100% virgin wool which offers superior quality, wicking, cooling, and compression protection. The cut of the pad, a French curve back line with wither slope, provides a comfortable fit on your horse's back that protects against pressure points.

Favorite Features

  • 100% virgin wool provides ultimate wicking/cooling properties and compression protection for your horse's back
  • French curve provides a comfortable fit for your horse's back and withers
  • Sized for smaller or cut back saddles
  • Heavy leather wear leathers for ultimate durability
  • Free cleaning sponge included

Sizing It Up

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 Standard Pad is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
    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.

    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.

    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 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!

    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!!!!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
