Saddle Pads from Barn World: A saddle pad for all types of riding
No other saddle pad or saddle blanket is necessary with the 5 Star Contoured Saddle Pad. Double padding creates movement and slippage of the saddle pad and saddle. This slippage is usually compensated for by overcinching. The contoured fit of our pads means a limited need for cinching with minimal saddle movement. Square cut pads do not follow a horse’s back contour. This can cause injury.
5 Star manufactures and markets the World’s Finest saddle pads and cinchas (cinches) for your horse and is the original designer and developer of the “Western Contour” saddle pad concept. The specially designed 100% Wool Contoured Pad actually FITS your horse’s back, relieving unnecessary pressure.
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
The 5 Star Contoured Saddle Pad is the original Western contour saddle pad with “a true French Curve backline and withers slope.” Special attention is given to wither height, backline variance and hip placement which results in a GREAT FITTING SADDLE PAD that conforms to the shape of your horse or mule. This conscious effort in design has produced a pad that fits most breeds of horses and mules without “break-in” fitting.
Top quality, pressed, high density 100% WOOL FELT is the base pad component, with 5-6 oz. wear leathers on the sides and top line. This wool felt is manufactured to strict specifications, using the highest quality virgin wool (90%), blended with recombed wool (10%) which allows for the highest degree of protection and economic benefit.

WHAT MANUFACTURERS DON ‘T TELL YOU!
Marketing of saddle pads has become big business. All one has to do is make a web search and you will find over 15 pages of manufacturers. Each saddle pad company puts various marketing emphasis on their products. Emphasis ranges from comfort, fit, durability, ease of cleaning, cooling, compression protection, performance, close contact, blood flow to animal’s back and the list goes on.
WHY USE WOOL?
The unique structure of wool fiber allows it to be pressed together with heat and steam to form a dense mat of FLEXIBLE, RESILIENT and elastic fiber, called felt. This ALL-NATURAL material has kinetic properties which enables it to ABSORB MOISTURE and WICKS it to drier areas as the concentrations increase. This wicking is what assists in HEAT REMOVAL.
