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 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'!).

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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Nice halter but had to return it. The mini size is for a very small mini. My guy is 35" tall and 30" bit to bit. Weighs about 150. It was way too small for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big D is great! Big D halters are soft, fit well and last. I've had other brands over the years but these are my favorite. Also use and love their blankets & sheets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, good fit I just bought this halter, and am happy with the construction. I have only used it a couple of times, so I can't attest to its durability, but it looks like it will hold up well.
    Date published: 2015-01-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice halter for the price purchased halter for horse that lives in pasture, hanging a halter of leather whether crown or whole halter out at the gate is not worth it, the leather just gets ruined, so purchased this nylon halter for that purpose, nicely adjustable for size of nose and head.. when wet tho this halter stretches and when hot dry in the sun, shrinks.. but have noticed that with all other nylon halters as well so not just a flaw with this brand

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality is great, but doesn't fit Bought the miniature size for my mini mare. It barely fits my mini foal. Wherever these are made, they must have ultra tiny minis. I'll probably end up using it for my sheep instead. Also, I don't care for the hook clipping to the outside. We've had horses get their halters stuck on the fence when they're rubbing against it. That's why I needed a new one. The horse struggled to get free and bent the snap hook. Hooks should be able to go in or out depending on the preferences of the owner. My horses don't wear halters when in their home pastures - but if they do have them on, it shouldn't be so easy to get hung up.
    Date published: 2014-09-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter Material is soft yet durable. Doesn't scratch the face and the hardware is top quality. Fit is a bit big for my 1000 lb. Arabian gelding, but the multiple adjustments available make it work nicely.
    Date published: 2014-09-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! THis halter is really nice and sturdy, it's a little big for my Warmblood's head (I got a large) but he will live. I like the color, thick nylon and tough hard wear. I like this halter.
    Date published: 2014-05-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fine Just wanted a sturdy barn halter with throat latch.  I might say it runs a tad small.  I got navy with brass which looks a bit cheap.  Their nickel looks a little spiffier.
    Date published: 2014-01-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! My horse had broken 2 halters previously from other companies and when I saw this halter, I knew it would be perfect for him due to the heavy-duty quality!  The hunter green looks great on him too!  Thank you for another great product!
    Date published: 2013-12-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy! I put this on my Polish Warmblood and he is usually really rough with his halters but this one had held up great! Hardly comes off and easy to maintain. My only problem after a while the brass color fades but still looks great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice nylon halter, about what you'd expect I ordered this for a 17-hand Percheron cross who has a BIG head. I initially ordered the 1500+ pound size, but that one was too big even for my horse. I sent it back and SmartPak exchanged it, no problem, for the next size down. I'm not crazy about the look of the "gold" hardware. It doesn't look like brass, and overall I'd prefer steel or chrome.
    Date published: 2013-01-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Run Large Size Large was way too big on my large-headed quarter horse. "Medium" fits both my quarter horse and my Morgan mare, on tightest fitting. A new feature is a keeper on the chin strap. It makes adjustments more difficult, but hopefully it will keep the ends from fraying. Also, no grommets just hemmed holes. I plan to purchase another one as most web halters are of poor quality these days.
    Date published: 2012-10-15
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite the right size. I originally purchased a medium sized halter for my 16 hand AQHA gelding, but the fit was a bit tight. I then exchanged that halter for a large, which took about two weeks (so not the fastest turnaround, but pretty good) to get back to me. The large was entirely too big, there was no way to take it up to where he could wear it. My boy is average; he wears a medium Crusader fly mask with room to spare, average size bridles fit fine, and I had no problems fitting his other halter, so I was a bit disappointed that the sizing didn't work for him. This time I'm just going for a credit- I know that Smartpak will have something else I can find to spend it on! The quality for the halter looks to be nice, the buckles were nice and heavy- they didn't feel like they would break easy at all. I never got to try it out to see how it really holds up.
    Date published: 2012-08-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Excellent quality and great price. I ordered the wrong size and realized that the minute I saw the halters. With one phone call a very nice young lady, guided me to the right size and shipped them out to me the next day. I returned the halters (via UPS) that were too small and received my credit on my card in a few days. Love this company.
    Date published: 2012-08-22
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good everyday halter I was looking for an everyday barn halter and I have a warmblood with a very large head. I got the draft size at first and it was way too big, so I exchanged for a large and it fits ok. It is a little on the small side. Also if you have cross ties, the size of the hardware on either side of the halter are too thick for the snaps that our barn uses on the cross ties, so I will look for a different brand next time for that reason. It is well made. My daughter decorated it with fabric paint and it is super cute.
    Date published: 2012-08-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice halter this is a good halter with nice features, i would have liked a wider size range however as the horse size is a little too small with not enough room for adjustments and the extra large warmblood size would have been too big; overall though a nice halter
    Date published: 2012-07-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter! Love this halter. The nylon is very soft. I imagine it's a lot more comfy on my horse's face than the stiffer nylon halters. It's very adjustable, too! The horse size fits my TB mare great.
    Date published: 2012-06-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Halters These are nice, practical halters but one word of warning - if you're ordering these in mini horse size, they will not fit a size B mini. Mine were way too small for even my 33" miniature horse.
    Date published: 2012-05-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fit Bought this for my Belgian Mare. Fits well with room to spare. Nice quality to the holes and buckles.
    Date published: 2012-02-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this halter. I have a mare that has figured out how to get out of breakaway halters, so she is back in Nylon. It fits well, the material is great, and it seems like it will last a long time. I would definitely order it again.
    Date published: 2012-01-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, solid halter Great halter. Took a little playing to get the right size: my gelding, who's 16hh and about 1000lbs, has a fairly "average" sized head, but is thick through the throatlatch area (to give an idea of his size, his bridle has cob-sized cheek pieces, but an oversize browband and throatlatch). Tried the Medium, and could BARELY get it on with the loosest settings. SmartPak's awesome about returns, of course, so I exchanged it for a Large. Fits great.
    Date published: 2011-12-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quality and Great Colors Love these halters for my little horses (minis). There are great colors to choose from. They are study and a quality product. Heavy hardware for strength and durability. These are a much higher quality than what I find at my local feed/tack stores for the same price. Highly recommend this product for your horse. The stylish colors are for you!
