At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
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.

    Effol Horse Balm is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deceiving horse balm In Germany i used several other Horse Balm products so i can compare. This was the less convincing product I ever used for my own joints, I think there is only a little camphor and rosmarine in it and menthol either. May be the reason that the % of the ingredients is not referred.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Liniment, Needs New Container I LOVE this liniment! The ingredients are exactly what I look for in a liniment, as I love the effect of Arnica. It has that great tingliness without feeling COLD. It also has a nice scent. However, it's very hard to use out of this little tub, if you have to reach back into the jar after massaging it onto your horse, it winds up with little bits of hair, dirt, etc in it. I should have just put it into a squeeze bottle myself, but it would be nice if it came that way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Liniment! Just tried this product for the first time, and it is officially my new favorite liniment! It's gentle on the skin, yet very effective (even rubbed it on my own back out of curiosity). It has just enough of a cooling tingle without being COLD, and doesn't leave your fingertips freezing all day after applying it. It almost has a little bit of an Icy Hot effect. It does have a VERY strong scent, which some people may find overpowering, but I love. I especially love that it contains Arnica. I was specifically searching for one that did as I use Arnica gel on myself for all my own sore muscles. This product was very effective in helping me to relieve a large muscle knot in my gelding's stifle that was causing some mild irregularities in his gaits. Overall, very pleased. My only fault with it is that it would be much easier to use if it were in a bottle rather than a tub. Having to scoop it out is a bit messy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this liniment!! My mare is coming back from an injury and everytime I ride her I've been rubbing this on her shoulder. She loves it! Generally she hates being curried/rubbed but with when I put this on her she is happy and relaxed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works really good on me I bought this for rubbing my horse's neck and back after workout, but I ended up using this more myself. It works really good on achy joints and muscles. It is not sticky, is easy to apply, and gives refreshing feeling. It is in the gel form, but is very soft, so you have to be careful when you open the jar. Don't flip it upside down.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Darn! I was going to buy this because it sounded great....but I wanted to check on USEF's banned substances just in case. Camphor is on the 2014 banned substances list (https://www.usef.org/documents/drugsMeds/drugsMedsGuidelines2014.pdf). Just wanted to put that out there for anyone who that might affect. I'm not sure what the clearance time for camphor is...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a jar! This past October, I was competing at a very large scale show with my quarter horse. After taking him back to the barn after our class he began to become very stiff and sore in his neck, to the point where he couldn't lift it, or move without falling. (He had this problem when he was younger) My trainer got him up, and gave me some of this and told me to massage it into his neck. As I had my final callback class to ride in, and I was the first one to go out. So we used a bit of this, and it worked almost instantly. The knot in his neck smoothed out a bit, and he seemed to feel better. After my class we did spend a good two hours just massaging his neck, but this stuff works wonders. Great for horses with sensitive skin as well! Won't burn or sting them like other liniments/balms will. I LOVE THIS STUFF. Definitely won't have a tack room without it (Photo is of Cati at the show after using this balm)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff (for myself!) Effol Horse Balm can be used on people or horses - I use it on myself for my various aches and pains after riding. It's actually very similar to a human product called Biofreeze that both my chiropractor and massage therapist recommend to their patients for a third of the price and five times the quantity! It goes on cold (feels refreshing!) and then feels warm after a couple minutes, and it really does work making muscle strains feel better. It's very strong smelling but I personally like it. Also the container says do not use within 48 hours of competing but looking at the ingredients, I'm not sure what the ingredient of concern is. I don't compete so it's not an issue for me but it may be for some. Overall it's a great product and I'm always sure to have some on hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gel Liniment! I love this product! The gel stays where you want it & has immediate effects. It is very mild (I've used it on myself). You might not like it if you are used to very stong liniments, but this is perfect for more sensitive areas/horses.
