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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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.

    Big D Nylon Halter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73.
    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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Good price for a nice average halter. It has the adjustable nose band and a snap on the throat latch which were 2 of the things I was looking in for a nylon halter.
    Date published: 2011-12-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good halter I was looking for a good quality "regular" everyday halter. This seems to be it. Haven't used it long enough to speak to durability (which is the reason for the 4 stars on quality), but so far it has stood up well to hanging outside the turnout fields in all weather and occasionally falling in the mud. It has a good feel, looks nice, the hardware seems solid and is adjustable in the right places, no unnecessary frills but everything I need. And it fits well - I like the many different sizes. Medium horse fits my 16.1 hand warmblood, head a little bigger than a cob but regular horse-sized is often slightly big on him, perfectly. (Though in truth he's probably more than 1100 lbs...!!) I consider this a good purchase and intend to buy more of them.
    Date published: 2011-11-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, nice halter This is probably the nicest halter I have ever purchased. It is made of thick and sturdy materials. It is the Cadillac of halters. I purchased the green one and it looks great on my sorrel gelding.
    Date published: 2011-11-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big D Halter = Big The weight guidelines for the halter size are a little off. My horse fit in the XL category but the halter was way too big. Smart Pak kindly replaced it with a Large and it's great! We love it :)
    Date published: 2011-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter I bought this halter and really enjoy the way it is adjustable at the nose band too. I like the clip feature. This is a sturdy and well made halter but the adjustability of it is what makes it my favorite because one size does not really fit all. The color is beautiful too.
    Date published: 2011-09-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very affordable for the quality Great quality at an excellent price. I like the fact that it adjusts at the poll and chin. Especially nice with growing foals/weanlings/yearlings. There size changes often and it's reassuring to have a halter that fits properly.
    Date published: 2011-09-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great everyday halter! These are great everyday halters. The holes are just the nylon and stay easy to use unlike halter with metal around the holes. That is my one requirement in a daily halter and this one fits the bill.
    Date published: 2011-09-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for odd size head This halter does fit my colt with his head being in between sizes right now, but the chin buckle is always coming undone on it's own.

    Date published: 2011-08-15
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice at first...but rusts I love the colors and durability of the halter nylon. This the first halter my green horse has not been able to break. The main problem I have is that it doesn't look very good anymore. I have only had the halter for the past few months and the metal is rusting. The halter is never left outside in the rain. My horse is stall boarded. It has very little exposure to water. Only during bath time but I don't hose the face since he's a baby about it. My matching Big D halter lead is having similar problems. I won't be buying anymore Big D products.
    Date published: 2011-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Strong and look good! Even after a few washes these halters look great and they are really well made and strong and safe. They last for years. The only colors I have had that fades are the red and black.
    Date published: 2011-07-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Halter This halter runs a bit big, especially on the adjustable nose piece. But it is very well made and holds up to daily use and abuse. It has kept its color and the metal parts still look good.
    Date published: 2011-06-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice nylon halter. The design seems strong and durable. The colors is very rich and true.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter Very nice halter. It ended up being to small for my adult miniatures, but works well on my yearlings. Put together extremely well. Very durable
    Date published: 2011-03-22
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not happy The halter is very heavy and I should of really checked it out before I put my horses name plate on it. Some parts were twisted and sewed together. I have a feeling it might give my horse a rub. It is my fault for not examining it more carefully.
    Date published: 2010-12-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one STURDY halter! My horse's narrow face is difficult to fit. He is also on the low end of the weight the big D halter is made to fit, so the chin strap is set to the smallest adjustment possible and could still stand to be a bit smaller-but it works ok. The throat strap is too big for him right now and I wish it could be made adjustable. My husband added a couple of holes in the head strap because it was still too big for him at his current size. So we had to modify that for wear at this time. But this halter will be durable for a looong time and I know it will continue to adjust. My horse is only 20 months old and the Big D halter is the 5th halter I have bought for him. It is so well made it just may be the last one I ever have to buy.
    Date published: 2010-12-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter Good quality from Big D, as usual. If you need to use a chain this is not the best halter since it has the adjustable chin strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best nylon halter I have several Big D nylon halters and I have never had one break. I have one gelding who has had his for about 15 years and it shows no sign of breaking down anytime soon. Best nylon halter out there!
    Date published: 2010-01-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good.. So far my draft cross has not broken it. I bought this one because it was guaranteed not to break. I was skeptical, but despite some early testing by my mare, it has held. I am hoping this halter continues to live up to it's promise:)
    Date published: 2009-12-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great construction for a good price I was plesantly suprised at the quality of the hardware on this halter. For the price it is well made and very adjustable. My horse's head is hard to fit so it is a little big for her but overall I would recommend this product
    Date published: 2009-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I'd been looking for a Big D halter for my horse for awhile and was so happy to find one at SmartPak. These halters are well made and don't fray on the edges like other nylon halters. The holes on the crownpiece don't have any metal grommets that can be lost or twisted. It's adjustable noseband means that you have more flexibility in making sure it fits your horse properly. SO happy with this halter!
    Date published: 2009-07-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice halter for the price I got the colt 6-11 month size for my 10 month old ASB cross filly and it fits her perfectly. its not big and bulky like a lot of nylon halters are so reflects the size of her head nicely.
