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 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.

    Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from too small Way smaller around than advertised and very little stretch in the elastic gusset.
    Date published: 2020-03-17
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst half chaps I've ever bought These are great chaps... until they stretch, twist and scratch the heck out of your saddle flaps. DO NOT recommend. I wish they weren't so used so I could return. A complete waste of money.
    Date published: 2020-02-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves these chaps! My eleven year-old daughter was very particular about the chaps she wanted after getting the Ariat boots she had been asking for. She only wanted chaps with a back zipper, and we had to order a few different pairs until she found exactly what she was looking for. She really loves these, and has much less of a problem zipping them up herself as I expected she would. On another note, I found Smartpak after six years of buying equestrian apparel (and occasional treats) through another company, that I was not very happy with. I love the excellent service I receive from Smartpak, and we will be loyal customers from now on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! I wanted to find a pair of professional looking half chaps that I could use for lessons. I am so happy I bought these, because they fit very well and are made of good quality leather. Overall, a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great half-chaps! My previous half-chaps were Ariat Breeze's, which I loved except that they had a velcro tab at the bottom instead of a snap, and that they didn't work well with spurs. After trying multiple different brands and other Ariat styles, I settled on these for replacements, and boy am I glad that I did. They have more of a boot look to them, which I love. And once broken in they are every bit as comfortable as the Breeze's. They are made of a thicker leather, so look classier in my opinion, and I think they will be more durable. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that even the shortest version is a bit too long for me and my very short calves. I do like that the zipper zips from the bottom up, that way if I need to do a deep squat for some reason, I can unzip the top a little to keep it from digging into the back of my knee. Like all Ariat products that I have tried, both the quality and style are top notch!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything I Wanted!! I bought these about a month ago after agonizing over many other options. Even though I’m only schooling I wanted to up my appearance and have the tall boot look. My leg measurements were on the line between two sizes - and I discussed multiple options with customer service - they were GREAT! ( I called them a lot !) My takeaway- yes, these fit really tight, like almost cutting off circulation tight- but if you can zip them all but the last 1/2 inch you’ll be happy with the fit when then stretch. I wore them around the house for a least a week before riding in them! I can’t speak about durability but I do know the support has helped my lower leg and I just feel better. Like my other ariat products these seem well made and fit well over my Heritage lace paddock boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Chaps I have not used them yet, but by just trying them on, I think I'll like them. Out of the package, they seem super nice! I was between a medium-short and a large-short, and ended up sizing up... glad I did! They zipped up snugly but not too tight! No complaints here! Can't wait to try them out!
    Date published: 2018-10-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chaps After waiting longer than the normal time for shipping I received the half chaps and they were worth the wait. Like other reviewers said, they are true to size and at first seem too tight but after a couple of rides they break in and fit just right and offer great support.
    Date published: 2018-10-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful and Fit Great! I finally found the perfect pair! I measured between Med and Large, and Large Short fit me perfectly. I measure shorter than a short by 2-3 inches, but they will work ok in height / no worse than my previous chaps. Leather is soft and they look like nice tall boots!
    Date published: 2018-08-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look I bought these 3 weeks ago when the other Ariats I ordered that were on sale were cancelled due to being oversold. I ordered the XXS and was very worried they would be too small. I am 5’1” and my calf is about a 12.5. They were at first very tight and hard to zip all the way up but after about 4-5 rides they stretched out nicely and fit wonderfully now. They are elegant and look like a very nice boot. I am happy I bought them. Only time will tell on how well they hold up as I haven’t had them long. Just remember they will stretch so go with the smaller side.
