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 5 out of 5 by from Longlasting Very awesome...some are stiffer than others but all of them are very nice!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stiff and uncomfortable to use I bought this in brown on brown to match a halter I own. I'm used to cotton and nylon lead ropes. This rope is very stiff and rough to the touch. It doesn't match my halter and I don't like the feel so it's sitting in my tack room. Since it's custom, I hate to ask Smartpak to return it. Not worth the money. And I'm usually a fan of Big D products.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No SmartPak is a great organization. This lead is the second thing in at about ten years I feel is just not right. It looks great. When you put your hand around and close your fingers this lead becomes a flat lead. There is no core. It is a real let down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable and super long length This is my second Big Dee lead rope I purchased through SmartPak. First one had a shank, but this one did not I love them both. Super quick shipping even though they said 2 to 3 weeks I received mine in less about one week. Well worth the money.
