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.

    Cribbing/Free to Eat Muzzle is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good, my smart overweight mare still has it on after a week.
    Date published: 2018-09-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job, but horse still has pretty good rub Due to my skepticism about how well a horse would be able to eat with this flat design I first tried out the very bulky and heavy metal muzzle. Compared to that, this cribbing muzzle is amazing. Compared to a cribbing collar, well, it is just another device that I find I need to weigh out my pro's and con's with it. No it doesn't have to be put on super tight like the collar, but my horse did manage to get a big rub after a few weeks under chin/lower jaw. I am given to understand that this is because she is itchy and rubs her face pretty hard and in turn this muzzle rubs her in that spot. I suppose I cannot fault the muzzle design for that - but horses do itch. I need to figure out a way to pad that particular spot. On the plus side I found after that initial "learn how to eat again" period (that I believe all muzzles require) my horse could eat much more and much easier from this muzzle than the other. If you have an incessant cribber it's worth a go. My mare is a TB with sensitive skin so I do not believe the rub issue would be applicable to everyone. I do think it's more comfortable than her dare collar that she is wearing while that rub heals up. I am hoping once flies go away the rub issue will go away and she can go back to wearing this 24/7.

    Date published: 2018-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best option we have found we have had this for about 6 months for a very persistent cribber, and have been happy with it. We have tried some of the other styles: The muzzle with the single hole in the bottom frustrated our horse and he struggled to eat with it (he would have trouble at the round bale with that muzzle and he happily eats with this one). We have also tried the steel one (the red one with white fleece) and found that it was really heavy and eventually it rubbed a raw spot on our horse's nose :( We have found this one to be comfortable for the horse (no rubbing or sore spots and we continually watch it) and it seems really well made to put up with all of the abuse. A few things we have learned: make sure the bars are vertical, make sure to put the little plastic guides over the velcro fasteners - those really help hold those straps in place (we will use zip ties wrapped in comfort tape if one of those size ties breaks), and we use it on a break-away halter in case any mishaps occur. All in all - a good solution to a tough problem.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasn't enough for my persistent cribber... This product fits well and is light weight. Even so, my very persisitent cribber got around the aluminum bars and just cribbed through the nylon after wearing it for 5 minutes. Shortening the fit didn't help either. If your horse is persistent like mine, try the Dare cribbing collar or the steel cage muzzle. Steel cage muzzle is heavier, but much less restrictivefor eating and breathing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best grazing muzzle The traditional muzzle is hot and the small hole in the bottom of the muzzle only frustrated my horse. This is the most humane way to manage my horses weight. I am so glad my veterinarian recommended this type of muzzle
    Date published: 2017-10-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, strong velcro, solid design, no rubs Bought this about 3wks ago for my incessant cribber (we also have a miracle collar, cribox, a Dare collar, plenty of history of workups, supplements, special diets, full turnout, all the hay she wants, and work 4 days a week--none of which have stopped her). She's like a new (happier) horse after a couple weeks w/o cribbing. She doesn't mind wearing this, it hasn't rubbed her (She is a 15'3"Oldenburg, built like a tank, with a head to match; I ordered her the XL size), and fits well to a regular halter (I have a Perri's) and so far has stayed in place. She cannot crib in it (on her water bucket, on the fence, on the waterer, on the stall wall). We did learn to put the muzzle on with the bars parallel to the length of her face, b/c if they are transverse, she can still figure out how to get to the fence boards through it to try to crib. I did note one of the bars bent slightly, but I'm hoping she won't break anything for a long time. Will update if she does. She can drink water by pushing her face against the muzzle, turning it a slight bit to an angle, and getting down into our square shaped auto waterers enough to drink (IOW's, the whole muzzle doesn't fit inside the tank opening, but she can easily drink using her technique). I do worry about cold weather (we at at 15 deg right now) and eating and drinking through cold metal, but so far she doesn't look like that's an issue. If it seems to stop her or slow her down, I'll switch back to the less effective Dare collar for cold days. But for now, we are happy with this answer!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse figured out how to crib I am deeply disheartened and extremely disappointed that this device didn't work. Within one week my horse figured out how to press the metal grill against a fencepost and crib on the inside edge of the metal surrounding the grill. My horse is 18 years old and has been cribbing since he was 3, so I have tried every device on the market. I hate seeing him so miserable, because the neck devices have to be so tight that he gets rub sores and he has to keep his head lowered all the time just to breathe easily. I was so hoping this would be a more humane device for my horse, but it didn't work, and I wish I could get my money back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cribbing Free muzzle works My OTTB is a cribber. With this muzzle he could not crib and, after some equine learning, became quite proficient at eating and drinking. I would not leave my horse with aggressive horses or horses who might be attempting to move up on the pecking order. The cribbing was eliminated when out to pasture and in the stall. Recommend having two halters, one for the cribbing muzzle and one for supervised grazing. That said, it is easy to attach and remove. Had it 3 weeks...no issues with sturdiness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. I wish my mare would stop wind sucking and then I wouldn't need it. But.... Since it's a necessity now, this is a great product for the job. Nothing would stop my mare and this did the job. The velcro is easy to use and it doesn't stop her from eating.
