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'!).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I purchased this product for a new horse. I was excited to have it because I know the quality of leather on Antares saddles. However when I received this item I was greatly disappointed in both the quality of leather and the leather stop (typically where a stopper/doughnut would be placed). The beautiful and convenient looking stop (photos below) made the martingale extremely awkward to adjust properly. I ordered two martingale in order to properly fit my horse for a clinic and boy did I have trouble. The martingale I ended up keeping for my 17.2h gelding was a good fit everywhere but the "y" of the running martingale remained too lengthy. The leather stop I mention made it impossible to adjust to proper length. therefore before the competition that weekend I had to take a knife to the product in order to trim the leather to have the product fit properly. For the cost of this martingale I expected much more from Antares and I would not recommend this product to any of my customers. I love smartpak but definitely will not be ordering any more products by Antares. If I had not had to make such dramatic adjustments I would be returning this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice martingale I think this runs a bit large - my 16.2 horse is going in a size 1, albeit on the last hole. It is really pretty and the leather was nice and soft from the start. It is so soft that several months in, I am reluctant to oil it to darken it up a bit. I don't use it super regularly so perhaps with more use it would be thirstier :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great! This martingale was even prettier than I had expected, and it darkened quite a bit in the first few oilings.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to return. I had to return this martaingale. It souned great for my 15.3hh OTTB jumper. I got it and I couldn't slide the fork low enough so it was way too long in the neck area. He goes with his head up and has a longer neck for his size, but it was several inches too long. I was not happy to have to reutrn it. It wasn't even close to being able to fit due to the stopper built in. I went and bought a new martaingale that is more adjustable.

    I started riding when I was 9 years old and quickly got swept up into the competitive hunter/jumper world. I showed my first pony, Chloe, in the Small Pony Hunter divisions were we competed at shows like Fairfield Hunt Club, Old Salem, HITS, and West...
