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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice gel pad! I was using a mattes half pad and just felt like the contact was missing but at the same time I needed to make sure that he had the padding that he needed. This was a really good investment that allowed both of us to get what we needed. He's comfortable and I love that the saddle doesn't move/slip. Very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! The pad fits my saddle and my horse perfectly. He really seems to like the way it feels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helped with my sensitive mare I am just getting back into riding after a 20 year hiatus. I adopted a very sensitive TB Mare who took exception to my lack of current body control. This pad has really improved our relationship by soothing her back. I can't recommend this enough!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horse! I've used this pad for a couple weeks now. I have tried it both ways -- between the dressage pad and saddle, and between the dressage pad and my horse's back. I find that the latter works best for my guy. He moves more easily and generally seems a lot more comfortable with the gel pad directly on his back. His hair does end up with a dimple pattern, but that washes/brushes out. I rinse the gel pad after every ride and let it air dry. My horse and I are both happy with this pad! I have an Arab-Warmblood cross. I marked the pad as running a little large, but that is probably because he is a little shorter in the back than a lot of horses. The pad can easily be trimmed if necessary.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps my saddle stay in place After reading reviews I bought this pad to go directly onto my horse, under the saddle pad. I was having trouble with the saddle slipping back 2 inches, and this seems to help. I like how it is very flexible, conforms to the back easily but do check the fit while tacking up! I like that it is grippy and washed off super fast. My horse can use his withers easier now with less bulk under the saddle but lots of flex in the pad. My one complaint is that it is Not breathable, it's solid gel. The massage nubs are large and dont seem to bother my sensitive OTTB, but I had to check with way I'd down because the large nubs are against the horse but the form of the gel mold seems upside down. There are good videos out on this pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flexible I bought this to stop my Austrailian saddle pad from slipping back out from under the saddle. I use this between the saddle and the pad. The saddle pad stays put. It also cushions the horses back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit! Have used this for a month and it helps some but generates a lot of heat.
    Date published: 2019-09-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non-Slip Pad To be brutally honest, I don’t like using this as a half pad on top of my saddle pad (which I believe is what is recommended). I felt that it couldn’t massage as effectively if there is a pad between this and the horse, and I truly didn’t notice a difference in my mare’s behavior. This sat in my garage for awhile and I finally found a half pad that I LOVE and can really see a difference with (the EquiFit ImpacTeq Pad), the only downside to that was the slippage. Then, it occurred to me... this is sticky enough to use as a non-slip pad underneath my saddle pad and regular half pad AND it will massage any impact that makes it past my EquiFit pad. Ever since I started using it this way, my mare has been happier, less sensitive, and moves more freely. Love love LOVE this pad, just for a slightly different purpose!

    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.
    Date published: 2018-10-16
    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.
