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.

    Effax Boot Polish is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good What I like about this polish is that it is very easy to apply and because it is a liquid, I was able to get into all the nooks and crannies of my old boots. When I shined them the next day, they did look quite nice, so the polish did its job which is all I can really ask for! I didn't give 5 stars because I don't think it works as well as other products I have used in the past. While it did shine my boots, this is not the product you want for that 'mirror' effect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brought life back to my boots! I bought this a few weeks ago and it makes my tall boots look amazing! I normally a bit lazy about cleaning my boots since I wear them all the time, but I'm so glad I bought this product. It does a really good job, my only complaint is that the sponge applicator at the end started to tear off after using it a few times. Using an ordinary sponge or towel works great too though
    Date published: 2015-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polishing Boots without the Mess Great polish made my tall boots look great. Best feature is the no mess sponge attached to this. Polished my boots with absolutely no mess.
    Date published: 2015-10-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this a few weeks ago and it was definantly worth the 10$. It lasts forever because you only need a little to make your boots look new and the shine and color lasts me all day.
    Date published: 2015-06-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Easy and fast drying- buffs nice. comparable to the Sergio boot cream
    Date published: 2014-11-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No polishing needed Just use the boot polish no elbow grease needed!!!
    Date published: 2014-10-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected! Hard to get too excited about boot polish... but this stuff is worth the money. Goes on so easy and shines up great.
    Date published: 2014-07-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love! this leaves a great, new-looking shine on your boots! I used this on my tall boots that I show in, and they look amazing afterwards! This can be a little greasy, so be sure not to use it where your boot would touch the saddle!
    Date published: 2014-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use polish! After reading the prior reviews, I was skeptical about purchasing. It's very easy to use and my Ariats look great! Produces a really nice shine!
    Date published: 2013-07-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality polish I used this product on my show boots as I liked that it came in an easy to use tube. My boots are shiny and look good, though they are not new. I thought the price was fair for the good quality you get from the Effax Boot Polish. I also used it on my paddock boots and they look nice too.
    Date published: 2013-05-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good design I tried this hoof polish and maybe I am using it wrong, but I don't see a glossy shine after the product dries. But, it did leave my boots looking very nice. I like how it has a sponge tip applicator, which makes it easy to apply and less messy. I do notice that it does offer protection from water splashes and dust seemed to brush right off.
    Date published: 2013-05-22
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not worth the extra price not worth the extra price--only as good as store bought polish. BEST polish I've ever found is "leather CPR boot polish"...but Smartpak doesn't carry it, so I figured I'd try this as Effax is usually high quality and so is Smartpak come to think of it.
    Date published: 2013-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Great shoe polish. Love Effax products so I knew this would be good. Perfect for touch ups and love the sponge applicator. A staple companion for all tall boots.
    Date published: 2013-04-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I usually use Kiwi boot polish but since I ran out of my normal polish, I decided to give this a try. The sponge applicator is nice to get into those hard to reach areas on your boot which is nice. It does have an unpleasant smell, but after using it, my boots were nice and shiny, so I'm happy.
    Date published: 2013-03-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my boots shiny! So far this is the best boot polish I've found. It definitely makes my boots shine.
    Date published: 2013-02-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I find this sooner?!? Fantastic product! I use it on my regular shoes and my riding boots! Put it on let it dry and buff it off! Easy for tall boots! and covers those scuffs that turn white! *Only things to note are that it's super strong smelling! and that you do need to clean your boots first with saddle soap or something to get the dirt off before using. and it will stain skin/fabric
    Date published: 2012-12-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use polish It is easy to apply, dries quickly and buffs to a smooth finish. A little goes a long way, and the sponge applicator kept the polish off my hands. I think they were optimistic about it repelling dirt but am skeptical any substance would be able to do that! My boots seem to be made of a leather that doesn't shine up terrifically, but this puts on the best shine possible.
    Date published: 2012-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO EASY! I couldn't believe how easy using this product was. You pop off the plastic cap, squeeze the polish through the sponge applicator, dispense minimally on your boots, then buff out with pantyhose/lintfree cloth/buffing brush. The applicator is amazing and this stuff should last me a very,very long time as you do not have to use much at all.
    Date published: 2012-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy! This is great stuff!! Its so easy to use and almost mess free! It has an applicator sponge on the top and the polish comes out the middle. Only takes a tiny amount, let it dry then I buff them out with a pair of old panty hose, works wonders! Wish I had it years ago. After warm up I would use the speedy leather shine then head into see the judge its a great pair to have for showing!
