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.

Massage Therapy

By using the Magnetic Back Pad first you are helping to relieve the pain and by using the Massage Pad, you can begin to improve the flexibility by mobilising these stiff tight muscles.

The EQUILIBRIUM Therapy® Massage Pad has taken over two years to design and develop and this product has most certainly been worth the wait.

Each massage session lasts for approximately 30 minutes and runs through a cycle of three different massage modes. It will pulse, stroke and vibrate. This ensures that the muscles are worked in different ways within every session for maximum benefit. Not numbing the back by having the same continuous vibration. There are three intensity settings:

Low - (this is the default setting when you switch it on).This setting is good to get the horse/pony used to the pad and also for cooling the back down after exercise.

Medium - This setting is ideal to warm muscles prior to exercise

High - This setting is very intense and helps alleviate back problems

Although the programme will last for 30 minutes you can stop at anytime during the programme. We have found that it has a beneficial effect after only 10 minutes.

The battery charges in a few hours and lasts for at least 6 sessions. This, combined with the product's light weight and nylon carry bag, makes it very portable, so can be used at shows and events, as well as all round the yard. It covers the horse's back from withers to quarters, and being soft and pliable it sits comfortably on the back of a wide range of horses.

Horses and ponies really enjoy using the back pad and when we think of all they give us, it is nice to think that we can do something as nice as this for them.

Sizing

Covers the horse's back from withers to the flank with an adjustable belly strap that fits a wide range of horses.

    Equilibrium Massage Pad is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review I just tried this on my older OTTB who has a variety of spinal arthritic issues and gets a bit cold backed in the winter. Pros: - I liked the fit and the way the straps sat. This new configuration seems to be a better fit from the prior version that had 3 belly straps; one of which sat toward the flank and always reminded me of a potential bucking strap. Pad did not shift or slip during use. - Good Vibrations: Vibrations were strong on my pad. I could see it moving and could feel it quite well with my hand on top of and below the pad. - Location: On my horse it got the upper thoracic vertebrae and the lumbar vertebrae Neutrals: - Noise: You can hear the pad vibrating. It's not what I would describe as loud but if you have a particularly spooky horse it may take awhile to get used to it. My horse had no problems though. Cons: - Location: In a perfect world I would love to have the middle of the pad vibrate so it gets the middle of the back where the saddle sits. There are vibrating mechanisms in the front of the pad and the back, but not the middle. - Size: For a long backed horse like mine it's a bit short - ends a good bit before the sacral vertebrae. So fit will depend on size of your horse.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it I tried the Equilibrium Massage Pad using SmartPak's "Test Ride" program, and I'm glad I did. It seemed like a far more inexpensive way to relax a horse's back/loins, as compared to a few other massage products that cost thousands. I liked that it covered more area on the horse's back. The reason I returned it is that it does not vibrate strongly enough to do anything! The product recommends starting on the lowest setting to avoid frightening/spooking your horse, which I did; no issue there, he didn't even feel it. I quickly turned it up and had it on the high setting. I placed my hand under each of the four massage points and none of them were strong enough to do much. At a medium or low setting, you can hardly feel them at all. Although the pad covers a lot of area on the horse's back, the vibration does not effectively run through the pad - so you are left with four distinct and separate points of barely-there vibration.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Equilibrium Massage Pad I got this on the 2 week trial offer. Tried it on all 3 horses: an Anglo-Arab 29 yrs old, a Hanoverian 4yrs old, and a Connemara Pony-Hanoverian cross also 4 yrs old. None of the horses particularly liked it. Two of the three are very sensitive/ticklish. The third just kept trying to gt away from it. The pad was tried on various days and for various times but with no success. I was disappointed because a friend has one and her horses really like it! Since I did not keep it, I really cannot rate the quality, value nor the durability. Thank you SmartPak for the 2 week free trial.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from relaxing................... I bought this for a ottb with back problems (very tight back). His back was not as tight after his massage and he stood perfectly still while he had his spa time. I have hope that after using this consistently that his back will improve.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE with this massage pad! Last season I was able to utilize my trainer's pad and it made all the difference in the world for my horses. I purchased this pad and my mounts are so much happier when we start working after spending a few minutes before saddling up with this pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I purchased this when I could no longer borrow the much more expensive massage blanket I had on loan. Despite this being about a quarter of the price, I think this is a FAR better product. My horse has been going better than ever since using this pad (daily, prior to exercise). It is very simple and easy to use, lightweight, and very portable. I can get about a week's use out of it between charges. A fantastic product that I am thrilled with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for us My horses like this massage pad. Follow the directions about letting your horse get used to the sound and vibration on a low setting - and don't tie them in case they have a reaction to the small noise. I fed my horses the first time I used this, with their halters on and me holding the leadline... and they munched away for the duration of time...pausing once in awhile to "listen". Nice device. Pricey, but useful.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from When it worked, it did not give much of a massage The battery, fully charged, lasted about 15 mins. When it did work, it did not seem to five the horse much of a massage. I sent it back!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a useful product First, it did not massage my horses back. It was more like something buzzing. Second, the battery would not hold more than a 15 min charge. Returned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! My husband bought this for me/my horse about 2 years ago. I was a skeptic and planned on returning, but thought I would try it. Within minutes of the massager being on the horse, he totally relaxed. I was immediately sold and love this product! I've let my friends borrow the massager and I highly recommend them purchasing for their equines!
