At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget 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 love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Acavallo Massage Gel Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for sensitive horses My thoroughbred cross has a very sensitive back. I bought this pad after having a saddle made and her sensitivity continued. I use this pad in combination with a wool pad and her tenderness has been alleviated. Definitely worth purchasing, especially for a sensitive horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mare loves it My mare is 5 and narrow and doesn’t need shims or achalf pad . A saddle pad is all she needs . But I didn’t like the idea of no cushioning between her back and my saddle . The gel pad gives her a comfy massage and cushioning withou adding thickness . I like the clean look of just a saddle pad because it goes under the pad. And it is grippy so it stops the saddle pad from slipping back as well. Rinse it with water after you use and it is good to go again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saddle fits better Bought this in black so it blends in with my black saddle. Helps the saddle fit better while my horse is becoming more fit! Haven't had it very long to now how durable it is, although others at the barn have had similar items long term. Does seem costly for what is basically soft plastic:)
    Date published: 2018-07-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shims be gone! I had a half pad stuffed with shims While my horse was building up his back. I needed something to replace them once the back was built up and purchased this pad. He loves the gel cushion on his back and I never have an issue with a saddle moving about. A winner

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice - horse didnt magically become Valegro tho.. I was using a friends Equi-gel pad and wanted something of my own...figure if it was good enough for Valegro, it's certainly good enough for Huey the Draft Horse. The pad is nicely constructed, a nice weight and easy to manage. I tried it both on top of the saddle pad and underneath (directly on his back). He didnt seem to care either way, i didnt notice a difference in his way of going but I feel better using something to cushion the blow of my adult amateur booty. I used it for a full week in Ocala,with twice a day lessons, and he was never backsore or anything. Overall, I will be keeping it and I like it, and with Smartpaks return policy, if you are on the fence give it a go, it doesnt hurt to try!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from For me, just “Meh” Quality is fine, but neither my trainer nor myself noticed any discernible difference in my horse’s overall comfort or performance using this gel half pad. Meh. Will be returning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finicky mare approves! Bought this to absorb shock, protect my mare’s back and to make the saddle and pad stick like glue. I tried one a friend had about a year ago and my mare was unhappy about the addition under her saddle. I’ve literally tried everything else to help secure the saddle (and yes, she was professionally fitted). I did like the non slip Smartpak pad and Shires non slip airflow dresssge pad but I wanted something that could protect her back more. So, I purchased this little textured gel pad under the hunch that this was my golden ticket to “happy mare land” and am thrilled to say, it’s fabulous. She likes it, the saddle sticks and we’ve had no tenderness from hard workouts. It needs to be washed off every once in a while to keep its stickiness and, if the barn is cold, you may want to warm the pad up before you throw it on if your horse is sensitive (I use a heating pad). Super happy I took the risk and aquired one. Dressage Diva approved!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I recently purchased this to replace an old sheepskin half pad that I've been using for years. My pony is now riding better at nearly 24 years old than ever before with the help of this pad. She is a completely different horse under saddle! I seriously can not say enough positive things about this product.
    Date published: 2018-01-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with saddle shifting I have a wide backed horse with a low wither and even with a custom saddle that is properly fitted I still had issues with my saddle shifting. I use this pad directly on the horses back under my saddle pad and it keeps everything in place. It does not affect the fit of my custom saddle and adds another layer of protection for my horses back. In the summer I rinse the pad off after my ride and let dry. In the winter or if it becomes less sticky you soak in a bucket with a mild dish detergent and all the dirt comes off and it's good as new. I'm going on two years with this pad and use it every ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gel pad. I bought this pad and a week later ordered another one. I love it. It stays clean and doesn't get gummy like others do!
