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!

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 Fit Tips!
 
Premium full grain leather shaft with perforations make this boot soft to the touch; Gore stretch panel allow for generous fit; Elasticized instep provides more mobility and flex through foot and ankle;  If between calf measurements, opt for smaller calf; V Sport makes a great option for a rider wanting more accommodation through the foot of the boot

Additional Tips & Tricks

  •  Ariat uses the highest quality zippers, coiled YKK #10
  •  “Tall & Tight” is the motto. The zipper should not glide up easily, but it should NOT take you 40 minutes to zip them either
  • Height is correct when you see a “V” behind the knee when you do a slight squat
  •  You can expect a ¼” to a ½” drop in height in tall boots
  •  Heel lifts (or small tack sponge) can be used as an aid during break- in
  • Calf and height measurements change every other foot size on the ½ size.   So, 7.5 and 8 have the same measurements, as do 8.5 and 9

INSIDER EXCLUSIVE : This can work to your advantage! If an 8 slim is too tight and a 8 regular is too loose, then try the 8.5 slim since that will fall between the two calf sizes.

    Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot - All Over Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A comfortable, stylish boot I'm so glad that the horse world is starting to accept some modernization to our equipment. The sneaker-like footbed, elasticated panels around the ankle and along the zipper, and perforated leather make this a very comfortable boot that performs well in the saddle. I purchased this boot for eventing competitions. I wear them in all three phases. I do not wear them much off the horse, though. These are riding boots, designed for riding - not course walks or stall mucking or clomping through muddy pastures. I find them comfortable to walk in, but I want them to last so I switch to my paddock boots when I'm done riding. I do have a bit of an issue with the zippers not staying up. They slowly work their way down over the course of an hour or so to where they are down past the top snap leather flap. I read that some people add a key ring to the zipper pull and loop the top snap leather flap through the key ring, so I'm going to try that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST boot ever I bought this boot after my Tredstep Donatelo boots broke on the third week. The insole is super supportive and comfortable. More comfortable than my Nike's. I love the perforated leather on the calf. Keeps my legs relatively dry during the summer heat. My feet don't go to sleep in the stirrups like they have with every other pair of boots I've ridden in. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great purchase! I just got my new Ariat V Sports and I couldn’t be happier. I bought these to replace my trusty Tredsteps, which died after years of service. I was not looking forward to shopping for tall boots because it is SO hard for me to find any that fit my calf properly. I’m a plus sized rider, but I don’t have huge calves—often regularly sized boots like these are too small and plus sized boots are too huge. I got the extra wide in these and they fit like a glove!!! Plus, they are extremely comfortable! The soles are incredibly supportive both for absorbing shock while riding and for standing/walking for extended periods. The leg of these boots is also very supple and felt broken in on first wear. I would definitely recommend trying these out! The price tag made me balk a bit (yeah, I’m cheap) but they were definitely worth the cost. I can’t speak to their durability yet but I’m hopeful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good every day boot I needed an everyday riding boot as I typically ride 3-5 horses a day and this boot has been perfect for it. On the downside, I noticed that the calf size was a bit looser than my other tall boots from Ariat even though it's the same calf/height/shoe size. Typically when I first buy tall boots and break them, in I can barely zip them up my calf until they're broken in but with the V Sport I was able to zip them up without any issues on the first day. The problem now is that they've stretched a bit and have a few wrinkles in the leather; however it doesn't impact my riding and is purely cosmetic. I've also noticed that the leather is very soft along the inner calf (which may contribute to how much they've stretched) and I am worried that down the road this boot will tear more easily than my other Ariats. Other than this, I really have no other complaints. They're lightweight, good looking, fit well around the ankle with good amount of flexibility, decently priced, and they barely took any time to break in. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an everyday boot or something to school in, but I wouldn't recommend showing in it at rated shows. *For reference I took these pictures after I wore the boots 2 times

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating! The foot felt wonderful and I’m sure the calf would have fit but there was NO way to zip past the ankle. I don't have fat ankles... and I wore thin socks. Thin sock over skin over bone and the ankles were just too small. Ankle measurements should be given in the product sizing info. Had to be returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and super grip! I treated myself to these boots as my first pair of grown up nice boots. They fit true to size and require very little breaking in. Even in the southern heat they keep your legs cooler than my half chaps. The grip is wonderful too! Helpful in maintaining leg position.
    Date published: 2020-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Spur Rests! I LOVE the spur rests on these boots. Spurs never move when they are in them. Also it took me no time at all to break these in. The first time I rode in them it felt like they weren’t even new.
    Date published: 2020-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boots I've owned! I'm not one to normally write reviews, but these boots are that good. Virtually no break in period, right out of the box they are super comfortable. I can see what other reviews have mentioned on fit. They are just a touch loose at the top by my knee, but honestly wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't remembered reading in other reviews. I've only had them for about 2 months so can't speak to durability yet, but so far very happy.
    Date published: 2020-05-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I am a dressage rider used to a stiff boot but wanted a schooling boot. very comfy footbed but obviously feels different in calf. I find they are overall comfy to wear. The wide calf fit me well which is surprising as I usually have to be a custom calf.
    Date published: 2020-05-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, super comfortable, look nice! I’ve worn my new boots twice. Absolutely love them! Very comfortable and look nice. I need an XW calf and that was available in this boot!
