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.

What Customers Say:
Reviews
Bates All Purpose SC+ Saddle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely saddle I was so impressed with the test ride option. I talked several times with amazing staff at Smart Pak who were able to answer my questions and point me in the proper direction. I didn’t keep this saddle because I learned I needed to go down in the seat sizing to fit my smaller body. The option of Lux leather is that much softer! Lovely!
