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.

    EcoGold Frictionless™ Dressage Pad is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not going to solve my problem I bought this because my delicate little flower of a horse gets rubs from the seams on the back of his pads at this time of year, when the hair is fragile and just beginning to shed out. However, when I got an up-close look at this, the seams and placement of the sheepskin trim on the back of this pad are in precisely the wrong place to alleviate the problem, so it's gone back, I'm afraid. If your rubs are in a different place I can see how this would work, but not for us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from eco gold saddle pads Best saddle pad ever. Cool for my horse ! Wash and dry no problem.
    Date published: 2015-06-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is frictionless I bought this pad because it is thin and I didn't want any extra bulk under my saddle. Unfortunately it causes my saddle to shift. I had to go back to my old saddle pad that had a less slippery fabric under the saddle. So expensive to sit on the shelf.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Rubs! Affords close contact Buying another one now! After just a few weeks use, this pad has allowed the hair to grow back where rubbed off from other pads and alleviated all rubbing. Perfect for a close contact feeling (make sure your saddle fits well to begin with) and keeps horse cool. "Sticky" surface on sides does not pull hairs out, but keeps pad and saddle in place. Generous drop in long sizing was available for our larger horse. Worth the investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saddlepads I bought these pads because both of my mares have small bumps on their backs- 1 from bug bite reactions and the other from a previous poor fitting saddle. Other pads seem to make these bumps a little sore or bigger. I have used the pads 3 times- all for long trail rides (2+ hrs) and neither had any worsening or soreness on their bumps. The pads seemed very comfortable and wicking under their saddles. These pads are extremely thin which is wonderful under their custom saddles. They wash easily and come out looking brand new despite being on sweaty horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday! The saddle pad is great for Florida weather since it keeps the horse cool and dries fast. I am going to order more. My horse also loves it because it is not too thick.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good/effective saddle pad I bought this pad, because I wanted a pad that was thin and would not change the fit of my saddle in any way. I like the fact that it is frictionless meaning my horse does not experience any effect from my any shifting of the saddle. It definitely prevents any lateral shifting of the saddle. I have a big moving 16.3 hh Swedish Warmblood and lateral shifting of the saddle and pad had previously been a problem. This is no longer the case. The problem I having is the front of the saddle pad is sliding under the front of the saddle when we do a lot of medium and extension work or focus a lot on transitions. The pad does wick away sweat quite well. He will be sweaty in other areas of his body, but not nearly as much directly under the saddle. The manufacturer is great. They have actually told me to return the pad to them and they will add an adhesive to the top of the of the pad to rectify the problem. They have suggested I buy the Stabilizer pad in the future. I will be following their recommendation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad! Every winter, my horse gets two bald spots under the saddle. We have tried everything: saddle fitter came out, Mattes pad, ThinLine pad, etc. This pad seems to be the best solution. I have been using it for approximately one month and the hair is growing back! Only down side is the cost, especially after having spent so much on the other pads ;) I wish I had tried this one first!
    Date published: 2012-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pad ever This pad is excellent for the hot, humid days we have been having. It seems to pul the moisture away from the horse and it gets trapped in that middle layer. The middle layer dries really fast. After washing this pad (and it washed well) it was dry in 10 minutes. I love the fact that it is ultra thin as I was looking for a really thin pad.It also fits my horse really well. I bought the regular size not the large. and it works with my 17.5" dressage saddle. If I had a bigger saddle I would probably have purchased the large as I have a concern about that roll of fleece. I would not want the cantle of my saddle resting on that and possibly causing pressure. I am not sure what those fleece rolls are for, I suppose to stop the saddle from slipping? I bought a much cheaper pad in a knock off brand of this pad and I really like it. I got this pad because I was curious as far as the differences go (the knock off uses similar types of fabric) and I really like the knock off pad, especially for the price. But I have to say, this one is superior in wicking capabilities. The only drawback to this pad is the price, but I sew and there is quite a bit of detail to this pad as well as really nice fabrics that do what they are suppossed to. The pad does not slip, is indeed frictionless, and wicks moisture like none other that I have tried.
