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 - Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 140.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hot summer riding! Bought these for eventing in MD during the summer. So far they've been great, even during the brutal hot/humid spell we recently had. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! I have wanted these boots for over a year and finally purchased. They were at a great price. I love the navy top. I did find they run a little small as compared to my other Ariat boots. I usually wear an 8 1/2 and after trying on my friend's boots, I ordered a 9. They fit perfectly. Love them!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper issues I purchased these boots just over a year ago and at first was in love. However, the zipper on the left boot occasionally would drop an inch or two now the zipper is dropping HALFWAY DOWN three or four times throughout a 45 minute ride. Extremely disappointed as the materials and construction of this product are great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them! When these went on sale I couldn't resist buying them. My Volants I purchased years ago were so comfortable but getting tight so needed a larger calf... These arrived promptly as promised. When I tried them on i honestly wasnt too crazy about the material on the outside of the calf area. They are snug to put on and I was concerned I ordered too small a calf but after a couple rides they have stretched out and not an issue now. The footbed is super comfortable as I have very sore feet from being on my feet all day at work. The inner calf with the soft leather is awesome and grippy but not too bulky and the ankle area broke in very easily. Very happy with these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boots! I have the reviews on here and just have to say that these are NOT custom boots and not every leg/foot is going to fit in them perfectly. But they DO fit my leg and foot PERFECTLY! I have very skinny heels and usually have trouble w blisters. I have no issues whatsoever with these and do not need to "break them in". I am on my second pair because I LOVE them! I have had my last pair for over 4 years and the area that is glued together at the toe separated (I can take it to the shoe maker and have it repaired; pretty simple fix). I beat the heck out of these boots (not on purpose, though) and they have held up extremely well! I've walked through water, mud and snow. I've cleaned stalls in them.... yuck I also disagree that they are hard to clean (because the outside of the boot is perforated leather). I just use Lexol cleaner and Lexol conditioner; just a little elbow grease. These boots are extremely comfortable in the saddle and while running errands. They are SOOOO sharp looking! The full grain leather on the inside provide lots of grip in the saddle. An all around great boot! They also come in a variety of height/width options. Make sure you measure! (I usually wear an 8, but 7.5 in this boot fits me)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I have a very high arch and these boots are perfect! The sales person at the tack store recommended I buy 1 whole size larger and that was really good advice as my wide foot fits perfectly. They broke in easily, no rubbing anywhere, and still look great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best pair of boots in a long time! For a couple months now I’ve been keeping my eye on the market for a new pair of boots. I found these, however I wanted to keep looking to see if anything else came my way. I have very specific measurements so it can be hard for me to find boots sometimes. I have a large foot (11), large muscly claves (wide-xwide) and a longer leg. Once I had scowerd the internet and my local tack store, I had found that these were the only boots I could find, that weren’t custom or too expensive, that could fit my boot needs. So, I went ahead and ordered them about three weeks ago. Now, I give them four stars not directly because of the boots themselves, but because of the payment process. I’ve orderd many things from Smartpak before and have never had this problem. It took me three rounds of ordering and canceling the order for the payment to finally go through without any problems. I tried calling customer care but whomever answered the phone was not helpful and said that I would have to get on a three-way-call with my bank to verify that I have my right credit card information and that i’m the one trying to purchase the item. However, the order finally went through without difficulty. I patiently awaited their arrival over the one and a half week shipping period. Yay!! They finally came, now to try them on. My right boot slipped on, no problem, little tight in the foot and calf but nothing that can’t be fixed from a good old fashioned break in. I try to put on the left boot but the zipper won’t budge at all at the bottom of the boot. Now, I had a little duel with this zipper for the next couple hours trying to get it over my ankle. (I ended up making my two pointer fingers bleed from trying to zip it, that’s my fault though!) I gave up for the day and decided to come back tomorrow and try and zip it up then. The next day I get up and I go to zip the right one up, perfect, i go to try the left one and it zips up perfectly fine! So now after about a week of stretching and breaking them in I have been able to fit both of them on over thick breeches. I got the black ones with the blue top and I absolutely love it! I have gotten many compliments at the barn and my trainer absolutely loves them! They have very soft leather which I love compared to my last pair of boots, Tredstep Donotellos, which have very thick and stiff leather. I can definitely tell these are gonna last me a long time! I’m very happy with them!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot! I have ultra wide calves and super skinny ankles. The best boot that I ever had was the Ariat Volant with the front zip. Since those were discontinued when I needed new ones, I decided to give these a try. I really love them. The foot bed fits perfectly, the leather is easy to take care of, and the calf size is excellent. The only problem that I have is that because my ankle is so much thinner than my calves, the zipper digs in really badly at the ankle. I could walk around in my Volants for days whereas these are uncomfortable for me to wear around the barn. The do not bother me at all while I ride so for now, I'll just bring a change of shoes to the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit I have been riding in these boots at least 4 days a week since I purchased them in October. They have been comfortable since day 1 and give the support that helps you really stay close to your tack and in touch with your horse. I normally wear a size 8 Ariat boot. After reading reviews, I ordered a slim short combo with that boot size. Initially the calf was a little snug, but it loosened up quickly and now is perfect. The length is also correct. I am 5'2" and have a long thigh and short calf. They seem to be wearing well and are easily cleaned. I put them on right before I ride and take them off immediately after.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fit in the ankle These boots are comfortable. However they are made in China! I am not happy to see that. I'm still debating on keeping them. The back zipper leather trim sticks out a bit which looks a bit off. The calf is a little big, but it fits everywhere else quite nicely. The height hopefully will drop a bit, as they are a wee bit too tall. The only reason I wouldn't recommend these is because they are made in China, find something else.
