Be prepared for anything
When it comes to pack animals, mules are the perfect choice. And when it comes to pack pads, 5 Star’s Mountain Packer in mule contour is the right pad for the job. Flatter along the spine and withers and wider at the shoulders than a horse contour, your mule will be wondering where this pad has been all his life. The Mountain Packer pad measures 33.5” long (taken 6” below the spine) by 43” wide (taken directly behind the gullet hole).
Special design features include wear leathers that run the full length of the pad to accommodate a pack outfit, and a leather flap to cover the gullet hole, which helps prevent debris from collecting and causing discomfort for your animal.
Why 5 Star?
The contoured shape of 5 Star Equine Products’ pads fits your mule like a glove, and the 100% wool fibre wicks away sweat while providing amazing compression protection for a ride that is comfortable for both you and your mount.
Your mule knows he is not shaped like a horse, and so does 5 Star, which is why they created the mule contour. Flatter (less curve) along the spine and withers and wider at the shoulders than a horse contour, your mule will be wondering where this pad has been all his life!
The 1” thickness is designed with ranch work in mind, for roping, performance, colt starting or heading to the mountains with lots of gear. It is the best choice for heavier gear/rider weights, or longer/harder riding sessions.
The Mountain Packer is extra-wide(43”) and –long (33 ½”), making it ideal for use with a packer outfit. The side wear leathers go the full length of the pad to prevent wear-and-tear on the edge of the felt. Also, the gullet hole has a leather flap over it to prevent twigs and debris from falling in and causing discomfort for your animal.Learn More
