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.

    Black Oak Aster Hunter Bridle is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Yet! I purchased this bridle used off of eBay simple for the price and it’s a wider noseband a year ago for a horse I leased. Although the previous owner over oiled it, it is one of the best bridles I have ever owned. I’m about to order a second one in a cob for my horse that I bought a couple months ago!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality for price. I've had this bridle for going on 3 years, and have mixed feelings about it. Pros: Soft padding Sophisticated Styling Easy break-in The stitching is even, durable and hasn't stained Cons: After 8 months, the layers of the leather on the reins, noseband, browband and other places began to separate. After being used during a show in 100+ degree weather, the glue holding it together started to seep out and was a huge mess. The covering on the leather is peeling off. The sides of the noseband where the cheekpieces rub has turned black. The reins stretched out a lot more than normal, I'd say maybe 8". This bridle is not worth the money. It is perfectly functional, but I liked the SmartPak Plymouth or the Bobby's English tack bridles much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bridle for price! I recently bought this bridle for a new show bridle. I was having trouble finding a bridle that matched my dark brown/ reddish CWD. It matched perfectly! It came out of the box a little stiff (especially the reins) but with conditioner it should be soft in no time! It’s very comparable to my red barn bridle that has lasted me 5 years! It also matched my red barn martingale perfectly. Very happy with it! Just be aware the nose band goes across the crown piece so you are not able to put a bridle plate on it. Also it has the shiny coat across it that all new bridles come with, but with constant conditioning and oiling it should get rid of that and become nice and soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely fit! I bought this bridle 5 years ago and I love it. It did take a couple months to break in, but it now fits my horse perfectly. I love the roller buckle on the noseband and the padding. Overall very happy!
    Date published: 2019-01-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s a nice bridle. I’ve used it several times now and really like how it’s padded and the chin strap Doesn’t interfere with the padding. The leather is really nice just a little stiff but the buckles seems like high quality and easy to buckle. Overall I think for the price it’s a great buy and I’m happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bridle for an affordable price! I was pleasantly surprised by the look and quality of this bridle for such an affordable price!! My horse just showed in it this weekend and looked great! :)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aster Bridle Sadly, this bridle was of poor quality and is now on it's way back to Smartpak. I believe my expectations were in line with the price. I hate to say it, but the leather quality coming out of India is still very low. The leather was stiff and the craftsmanship was poor. None of the buckles were aligned correctly, very weird.
