The "Workhorse" of Saddle Pads
Heading out to the bush means you must pack it all with you. Being able to rely on all the pad that carries it all out there is a must. Give your pack animal the best protection possible with 5 Star's Contoured Mountain Packer pad.
This 1” Natural Heather pad will ensure “happy trails” for you and your horse or mule. (See the Mule Pads section of my store to buy it in Mule Contour.)
Special design features include a 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. The nose-to-tail measurement is 33.5” (measured about 6” down from the spine) and it measures 43” across behind the gullet hole.
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.
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 combined 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
