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.

    English Seat Saver is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable, flexible, and sturdy! This seat saver is super comfortable! This is actually my second time buying this exact one because my dog chewed up my first one. I had had the first one for several years and loved it; it was still in great shape, even though I rode with it on all the time from October through April. It attaches easily with a velcro strap that goes through the gullet of the saddle and two sets of ties that attach to D-rings on the front of the saddle. The ties are looped through metal grommets, so they won't pull through the sheepskin. There is also an elastic strap that goes underneath the panels at the back of the saddle, behind the flaps--it kind of shows up in the product photos, but isn't in the right place. The seat saver is easy to adjust and works well, even when I am also using pommel bags, cantle bags, and a breastcollar. The fleece is thick and soft and makes trail rides and endurance rides much more comfortable. I have found that it helps with temperature regulation as well: in the hot Mississippi summer, it protects my saddle from sweat; in the (mild but still below freezing) winter, my tush is much warmer than sitting on the saddle directly. The seat saver is not so bulky that it interferes with dressage or cavaletti work. Some of the reviews talk about getting a crease or fold across the seat saver, but I have not had that happen. I will say that the seat saver must be attached loose enough to rest on the seat of the saddle, but tight enough that it won't fold under the rider's backside. I have a 16" 1989 County Competitor dressage saddle with a high cantle/deep seat and this fits perfectly. The fleece goes up to the pommel in the front, but not over it. Overall, I love it and am very pleased with this (repeat) purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a great product This is my second seat saver. I posted a positive review before receiving it, and the new one is every bit as good as my old one. The first one wore out after about 10 years, mainly because I carry a pistol when competing in field trials, and it wore a hole in the wool where it rubbed against the cantle. My saddle seat, though, still looks brand new even though it is almost 30 years old, largely because of this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad I have had this pad for over 10 years, and it has finally worn out. The pad probably would have lasted longer but I carry a blank pistol during field trials and it bumps against the cantle, and eventually wore a hole in the sheepskin. I particularly like this design because it wraps around the cantle and protects the edge from being dinged. The only problem I have is when it rains, it soaks up the water, but I usually wear a raincoat so this is rarely a problem. So, I am ordering another one today. I have a 16.5 inch Stubben endurance saddle and it fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from English Seat Saver Love this and it looks awesome on my saddle! Not to mention "saving my seat"!! Thanks for a great product!
    Date published: 2016-07-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy. But... I bought this bc I have a bulging disc in my back so I wanted something soft to sit on. Its really comfortable but I was initially disappointed that it didn't come with instructions on how to put it on. Then a week ago the elastic holding it in place ripped. I dont know how the others stack up to this though

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice product. This seat saver did not fit my 18" dressage saddle even though a previous reviewer apparently had good luck with it. It is a high quality product, just did not work for me.
    Date published: 2016-07-07
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Folds itself down the middle Because of the way it attaches, as I was riding, it folded lengthwise down the middle and felt as though I was riding on a seam. Very uncomfortable. In fact, it made the problem I was trying to solve worse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my butt! I have been riding with one for the last five years. I've never had the need for full seat breeches because this keeps my butt in place. I replaced this item because the elastic was stretched out and it was pretty flat after five years use. I'm so happy that it arrived right before a Judged Pleasure Ride competition. A rider was bucked off and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance, everything backed up. What is usually a 4 hour ride, became a 7 hour marathon ride. But miraculously I was NOT a bit saddle sore because of my brand new seat saver! This fit my 17.5 Dressage saddle perfectly. (Yes, I ride trail in my Dressage saddle!) Not only does it keep my butt in place, it is super cushy and it's well made. So it is worth every penny and I'm recommending it to everyone. If you spend a lot of time in the saddle, you need this.
    Date published: 2016-04-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and comfortable! I have only ridden in this once, but I have to say it is super comfortable and didn't move an inch when I was riding. Attaches easily to the saddle too. Can't beat it for the price! I have a 16.5 HDR saddle and the fit was great. I can't speak to it's longevity but I'm sure it'll be fine.
    Date published: 2015-12-25
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from didn't fit I purchased this seat saver to replace one that I have ridden for 25 years. I returned it because it did not fit my dressage saddle or my forward seat. It wanted to bridge the seats rather than conform to shape of the seat like my old one does. It has fit every saddle I have ever put it on. This seat saver is well made....just not made for me. I would recommend it with the "fit reservation". I might note it DID NOT come with return shipping as advertised. I had to pay the return postage. No big deal, just not what was promised.
