As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or 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! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Kids New Rider Essentials is rated 4.703703703703703 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Starter Kit My son has been lead around on my horses now for sometime, and I was thrilled when he said he wanted lessons! Proud mama that I am, I jumped online and started shopping for gear. This package of goods was perfect for him. The helmet fit great and seemed right on, with the sizing guide. Gloves, perfect fit. Boots.....ugh, my boy has mondo feet! I called the Smart Pak people and asked what to do about returning part of the package. No problems. I sent the boots back to exchange. They are the best on returns and customer service. Boots were good quality and price though. Great stuff for outfitting constantly growing kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life made easier and safe! This is the perfect starter package for a child. The price and quality are beyond my expectations. She is comfortable in every item and they were true to size. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sized helmet! I was worried about buying a helmet for my grand daughter on line without being able to have her try it on. She is 3 years old. I spoke with a SmartPak Customer Service Rep and she told me it should fit her fine so I trusted her and bought it. The helmet fits her perfectly! We bought some fun stickers and she helped me decorate it and make it pretty. My grand daughter is thrilled with her pretty helmet that doesn't slop all over the place when she wears it and I have no problem making her keep it on. The price was an added bonus that made this well worth the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This is a great kit for beginners. My girls are just getting started in riding but this set them up quickly and easily. Other folks have mentioned that the boots run a bit small. That's true so order up a size. Thanks for offering a quality product at a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a Beginner The boots ran small and I new this from some of the reviews - However, my grandaughter wears an 11 - I ordered a 12 and they fit but I would have preferred them a little bigger. Other then that they look great. Have not had them long so I cannot comment on durability. The helmet and gloves were perfect. This set was great for the price! Again my order taker was awesome great size suggestions were given on the gloves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase I bought this for my 7yr old daughter and have been totally happy with it. What you get for the money totally worth it. I had some problems with the gloves being on backorder and the customer service was so wonderful responding to me and fixing the problem. I was extremely happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value! I bought this package as a birthday gift for my granddaughter, who has just started taking riding lessons. She loved it! It's a great value for the new rider who may or may not continue; not much money is expended but the quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great value! I don't know whether riding is going to be a long-term thing for my 7-year-old, so I was worried about outfitting her for her beginners' lessons. This set contains the approved helmet, the boots all the riders at the stables use, and the gloves -- which have turned out to be wonderful due to cold weather this spring!I didn't feel right about purchasing a used helmet at the local tack shop, so I was overjoyed to find this set at such a reasonable price. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a Beginner I bought this for my daughter who is 8 years old. The helmet was easy to adjust and to get nice and snug. The boots have been fine with socks. The gloves were a bonus, but nice to help hold the reins tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Package! I purchased this set for my 6 yr-old, and the price was better than the stables were offering for just the helmet. The sizing charts and the video on how to fit a helmet properly were very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Kid Rider Essentials I ordered these for my twin grandsons who will be three in August. They are beginning riding lessons this summer and especially needed helmets. It was nice to find paddock boots and gloves in the package as well and for a reasonable price. Affordability is very important when two of everything is required at the same time. The helmets easily adjust with the knob in back and I was surprised that they could be made to fit them snuggly as young as they are. They love the entire ensemble and we have video of them riding their rocking horses in helmets and boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great starter set I got this set for my child to start riding lessons again, she wore it at her pony party - the owner of the horses was impressed with the quality of product and price. She to will be recommending this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems Reasonable I purchased this set for my daughter, who just started riding lessons. The equipment seems fine for her, and I received it very quickly. They also included a small sample of horse treats, which my daughter enjoys giving to the horses. My only concern was that they sizing chart for the gloves only gave sizes, not measurements, so I ended with gloves a little too big.
