I agree reg smx can be thin and need something over it. I use the heavy duty smx Alpine with Navajo all in one. Its thick and totally contoured for great withers clearance. Never moves.pressure patterns always even.love the reg smx under hunt saddle on our high long withered quarter horse

Love my 5-star and ordered it from a local tack shop. I am getting ready to order another one (special order) with an open channel on the back from the company itself. I love love love them, I think that is all I will ever use..well worth the price!

I love my 5-star and getting ready to order another one for our mare. I Purchased our first one custom..black on black leathers and a 29". It was custom and cost $212.00 if I remeber right but is the nicest pad I have ever used and right now would never buy anything other than 5-star. First one was ordered from a local tack shop and the next one i will order right from the company, it will also be custom same as above except with an open channel over the back.
I have been on 5-stars website often and have seen the colors every time. I heard that the prices of these quality pads have gone up earlier this year though.

Well I'm just not seeing it then.. I went on their website at least 4 times today (when I cannot find something, it drives me crazy) and there were only black, natural, and tan.. no colored ones.

They no longer make the Colored pads....only the traditional neutral colors Black, Natural and Tan.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,

Training is how far it DOES go.

5 Star- we got at a clinic quite a few years ago....if you go on their page they have a link to all the online dealers that you can order from.

- 5star Equine Products

The Impact Gel and ESP we bought at our local tack store....I paid from $160-$230 for my Impact Gels (prices vary depending on individual place). My ESPs I paid $165 for

And the EquiPedic I bought at the NFR 2 years ago and paid $229

My favorite pad is the Weaver memory foam pad. It must breath well because our horses sweat less under them and when looking carefully after riding, the load seems to be spread/distributed more evenly than any other pad I've ever used.

I bought it on a lark after seeing it in an ad in a magazine and I'm so glad I did.
