5 Star Equine Joins NCHA Corporate Partnership Family

Quality Saddle Pads Featured in NCHA Prize Packages

For top cutting horses, the stress of a rider and saddle can be hard on the shoulders, withers and back, so a high-quality saddle pad is a must in the sport. Bringing that quality to the cutting horse world is 5 Star Equine Products and Supplies of Hatfield, Arkansas, the newest corporate partner for the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA).

“NCHA continually works to introduce companies to the cutting horse audience who will provide superior products at the best price,” said NCHA Executive Director Jim Bret Campbell. “5 Star has repeatedly demonstrated its dedication to making the best saddle pad in the industry and one that will address the unique needs of the cutting horse.”

5 Star stands for excellence in quality, craftsmanship and materials. Maintaining excellence is a standard which is met by carefully selecting the finest pressed virgin wool felt, leather, mohair and hardware. Products produced always receive full consideration to conformation, movement, natural therapeutic comfort and application. 5 Star produces 100% wool felt pads, mohair cinchas and wool blankets specifically designed to fit what is right for horses.

“I’m a fan of cutting and this sport provides the perfect platform for the type of product we produce,” said 5 Star Equine Products and Supplies owner, Terry Moore. “We are looking forward to being a part of the NCHA corporate partnership team over the next three years and providing the cutting horse rider a product that will be truly beneficial.”

Through the relationship, 5 Star will provide custom embroidered saddle pads to the Top Five in the $50,000 Amateur and $15,000 Amateur at this year’s Mercuria World Finals, as well as custom pads to the winners of both the 2013 Eastern and Western National Championships to be held next year. Furthermore, NCHA’s young riders will see 5 Star pads in the prize package for the Top Ten in the 2014 NYCHA Scholarship Cutting.

The National Cutting Horse Association approves approximately 1,600 events each year with purses totally more than $35 million throughout the sport. Cutting events take place throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, South American and Europe and are supported by such companies as Mercuria Energy, Ram Truck, Great American Insurance Group, the American Quarter Horse Association, John Deere Tractors and XTO Energy among many others.

 

Roo-Hide Saddlery Remains the Saddle of Choice for the Weekend Cutter

Roo-Hide Saddlery, with its distinctive kangaroo logo, has become one of the nation’s most talked about brand of saddles with its innovative marketing, mobile retail truck and trailer, along with its affinity to serve the weekend cutting horse enthusiast. With that goal in mind, the edgy saddle manufacturer has renewed its sponsorship commitment to the National Cutting Horse Association for another four years.

As one might suspect, owner John Burgin is originally from Australia, and brought his fascination with leather craftsmanship to the United States. “I spent several years working with great horsemen to get the feel of what a saddle needs to be both in and out of the show arena,” he said. “Having a first-hand understanding of what a rider wants in their saddle led me to handcraft saddles to meet their needs.”

Roo-hide’s handmade saddles are designed to fit horse and rider. Roo-hide maximizes the rider’s potential by sitting them close and deep in a natural cutting position, while also maximizing the horse’s potential by achieving the best fit possible. As the slogan goes, “Ride a Roo — sit quiet, close, and comfortable.”

Roo-Hide will be providing their quality products to NCHA through a number of avenues, including saddles to Mercuria NCHA World Finals class champions as well as two saddles for the Eastern Ride for the Roo. Competitors at the Eastern and Western National Championships will also see the Roo-Hide brand on saddles awarded to the champions of the Non Pro, $35,000 Non Pro, $50,000 Amateur, $15,000 Amateur, and $2,000 Limit Rider classes.

“Roo-Hide’s commitment to providing its product to our membership over the next four years is truly valued,” said NCHA President Ernie Beutenmiller, Jr. “Roo-Hide’s support is a great reflection of how companies give back to an industry and NCHA is grateful.”
