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'!).

Band and Braid Cutter quickly removes bands and braids. The Band and Braid Cutter works much faster and more effeciently than a seam ripper. Upgrade today!

    Band and Braid Cutter is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fragile, but still fantastic! I love this. I bought one earlier this year and it lasted through a summer of frequent use. I'm only buying another because I rested the cutter on my mare's rump as I was undoing a braid and she shook and the cutter went flying and broke upon landing on concrete. Only the little pick part broke - the whole thing didn't shatter. I will definitely be buying another, but this time I'm going to try not to throw it on the ground. ;)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I thought I'd give this a try as I always impale myself trying to get braids out after dressage, but this really just didn't work. I couldn't get it far enough in to cut the yarn (and my braids aren't as tight as some!) and then the plastic tip bent--and this was all in the first 2 braids I tried to take out! A good idea, but just doesn't get the job done. I'll stick with the standard seam ripper and try to be more careful.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! Ended up going to the craft store and buying a seam ripper. If you knot your braids tight, the tail of the cutter is too large and too flimsy to cut the knots. Only thing this is good for is opening my mail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from multi purpose Works great for curring bands. I also bought an extra for use around the house. Makes a great letter opener or twine cutter as well. It also works for opening packaging on new items. And at the price it can't be beat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Ok It does cut braids well but it is very difficult to use, esp. on small braids or very tight braids.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
