If you need assistance with your return, please give us a call at 1-800-461-8898. This is recommended for more complicated returns – for example, if your item is damaged, if you'd like to make an even exchange instead of a return, or if you received an item as a gift.
Free returns on sized items
As riders, we know that it can be tough to buy new tack or a pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn). From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! As long as you complete your return online or by phone within 60 days of the purchase date and the item is in like-new condition with the original packaging, you can return it, free. We'll provide you with a SmartPak pre-paid return label. Some sized items are eligible for free returns but may require special handling. Find out more in the section below.
If you're trying on a new blanket for fit, please keep the tags attached and use a clean sheet underneath to keep the blanket in like-new condition in case you need to return it.
For Ultimate turnout blankets and sheets covered by our 10-Year Indestructible Guarantee, and Ultimate stable blankets and fly sheets covered by our 3-Year Durability Guarantee:
- If anything happens to them within their respective warranty lengths, we'll exchange it for a new one in the same size – no matter what! It’s that easy.
- The guarantee does not cover blankets that have embroidery stitched anywhere other than the surcingle straps, as it compromises the integrity of the blanket.
- If it is eligible under our Guarantee, contact our Customer Care Team to initiate getting a replacement!
Used blankets that are being returned due to damage or defect must be washed before being returned. We cannot process returns on unwashed blankets. Have questions about returning your blanket? Our Customer Care Team is just a call, click, or text away!
Items that are personalized with embroidery or engraving are eligible for a full refund or exchange. These items need to be in like-new condition with tags and packaging intact, unless there's a defect. For defective returns, items need to be washed/cleaned before being returned. We cannot process returns on soiled items.
Please contact our Customer Care Team to initiate a return or exchange on damaged, defective, or warrantied items
Dog Food & Dog Supplements+
Dog food and supplements may be returned as long as the original packaging seals aren't broken. Return shipping fees will be deducted from your refund or account credit amount.
Due to their customization, PortionPaks and canine SmartPaks may not be returned once they've left our warehouse. If you have unwanted PortionPaks or canine SmartPaks, please consider donating them to a local rescue – they appreciate donations and we thank you for helping support dogs in need!
New helmets may be tried on for size and returned or exchanged as long as the original tags and packaging are intact.
Had a fall? Some helmet manufacturers offer accident replacement programs. Please contact our Customer Care Team to see if your helmet is eligible.
Horse supplements in buckets or bags may be returned as long as the original packaging seals aren't broken. Return shipping fees will be deducted from your refund or account credit amount.
Due to their customization, daily-dose SmartPaks may not be returned once they've left our warehouse.

If you don’t see results in two months contact our Customer Care Team and we’ll give you your money back. If you have unwanted SmartPaks, please consider donating them to a local rescue – they appreciate donations and we thank you for helping support horses in need!
Is your item too big for the UPS driver to pick up? (think jump sets, tack trunks, arena groomers). Contact our experts and we'll help you with any large product returns.
Protective Air Vests+
Before returning your protective air vest, please remove the compressed air canister. Do not return the air canister as most shipping companies require special handling for safety reasons.
Saddles are a big investment. That's why we're proud to offer the SmartPak Test Ride Program. We offer a Test Ride option for most saddles that we carry so that new saddles remain brand new for purchase.
Here's how the program works:
- You can keep a SmartPak Test Ride Saddle, risk-free for five days, to make sure you like the fit and the feel.
- Don't worry about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you really love it.
- If you love the test ride saddle, keep it and enjoy your new ride! Prefer a brand-new saddle? Give us a call to confirm availability and we'll help you exchange the test ride for a new saddle. Not the right saddle for you? Use our Online Returns system to return your test ride saddle or give us a call for saddle shopping advice and return assistance. Any saddle purchased outside of our SmartPak Test Ride program is still eligible for return, but it must be in like-new condition with tags attached, free from any marks or damage.
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition with tags and packaging intact in order to be returned.
Refunds and Account Credits
For items returned within 60 days after purchase, you'll be able to choose whether you'd like to receive a refund or an account credit. Refunds will be issued to the original payment method(s) and may take 3 to 5 days to post to your bank or PayPal account after the return has been processed.
Items returned within 61-365 days of the original purchase are only eligible for an account credit.
Account credits will be issued as soon as the return has been processed and will automatically apply to your next order.
Please note that we can only refund the original purchase price. For all non-sized items being returned, the customer is responsible for paying the return shipping charges.
