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.

    Hay Play Feeder™ is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better (and more fun) than slow feed nets! This seems to pacify my gluttonous large pony, and keeps him busy for several hours. He seems to enjoy pushing it about and nibbling the hay -- completely unlike how with slow feed nets he just rips savagely at the hay and empties them in a trice. It holds about a 5 lb flake of mixed timothy/alfalfa hay, and is fairly easy to fill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My horse loves this! She picks it over the hay that is easily accessed and takes a bit to get it out.
    Date published: 2018-09-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun product! Kept my Haflingers busy up to 3 1/2 h I bought this to see if it would occupy our 'hungry' Haflingers. I tried it with 4 different ones. They all ate ALL the hay from the feeder and it took between 1 hr-3 1/2 hours depending on the horse. One of our full size alfalfa flakes of hay fits it in. I pulled out the hay a little in each hole and then put it in their stall. Nice product I feel it is a bit pricey for a stable to have them all in and it takes a few minutes to load it, but if you only have 1 or 2 horses and want to occupy them, this is Fantastic! Would be great at shows also!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product I originally purchase three of these from the UK for my Donkeys. They really like using them to eat hay. So I purchased four more from SmartPak for my horses. I feed them three times a day in Fall and Spring, and the amount I am able to stuff in the balls is the perfect amount. I do use a digital luggage scale to weigh them, just place the hook through one of the holes and lift!. In the Spring and and Fall when the pastures are spent and they are in a dry lot this lengthens the time they spend eating and keeps them occupied. For those who have not tried them yet, the more you stuff them full the more difficult it is to get to the hay. Once your horses becomes proficient, the small scraps of hay that are left at the end come out easily by pushing the ball around. I even have a horse and mammoth donkey that take turns; one pushes while the other eats and then they switch. So much fun to watch! They are very tough and sturdy. Only small issue is in Winter sometimes the screw on freezes, but I just give it a tap with a rubber mallet and it comes right off. Unlike another reviewer, I never have issues with the screw on or the threads...spin on and off with one finger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Entertainment My horse is on stall rest and in need of some stimulation, the Hay Play Feeder entertains my very food-motivated horse and gives him a mental workout while deterring him from his more destructive pastimes. It also slows down the rate he eats, which at times has caused trouble for him after gulping it down, barely chewing. Now he nibbles and chews. I'd love to give it to him in paddock, but he's still working up to that. It doesn't roll far when he nudges it, so he doesn't chase after it. However, it does cause him to turn a little more in his stall than I'd prefer, though he slows his turns down after a few minutes-- getting tired. I let him have it for an hour or so; he gets most of the food out at that point anyway. I wouldn't worry if it seems like they're getting a lot of hay out in the beginning, it gets more challenging as the contents grow smaller. Overall, excellent product. Really delivered on everything I expected it to be and a few barn members are thinking of getting their older horses ones too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses really like these I just bought these. The horses immediately started rolling them around and eating the hay out of the holes You must put chaff in. The fill hole is too small to fold a flake of hay into it. The main nuisance is getting the bits of hay off the threads and lining the threads up correctly. These are minor inconveniences. The horses are very happy playing with these

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from He knows what it is. I bought this so my gelding could have a slow lunch. He can empty it in an hour or so. It can’t be packed too tight so it only works for snacks. It does interrupt and distract him when he’s in a mood to be noisy at night. I’d give it a thumbs up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing Ever! I bought this for my coming 27yr old warmblood. He's not a hard keeper but I have noticed that he could use more food these days. I saw this and thought it was a great idea to keep him moving around and get him some extra food. It fit about a flake of hay which I had to stuff in by grabbing chunks. The fill hole is more than adequate. He had a blast rolling it around and eating out of the holes. Had no problem almost emptying it within several hours. It seems pretty durable too. Yes, it is a bit pricey but I did buy it during one of SmartPak's great sales. I think it is well worth the money and I love everything about it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Toy! I bought this for my gelding who is always getting into trouble, playing with his buckets, pulling his pasture mate's tail out, trying to play with horses across the fence, etc. This keeps him occupied and gives him hay to nibble on between feedings. I found I can't stuff it with hay (long stemmed grass) or it gets stuck so I pack it loosely and he nibbles at the holes and rolls the thing around and picks up hay that falls out and by the end of the day it's empty. Only takes a minute to fill and gives hours of enjoyment!
    Date published: 2018-03-19
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed I bought this with great hopes for my "tends to be overweight"horse. No matter how I load the hay he gives up in frustration after only a few minutes. I have put it into his stall where he would be forced to interact with it to get hay and what I found is that the hay is hard to grab for him. even my mini horses rejected this ball. I have one for sale cheap if anyone is interested. On the plus side it is well made as my horse tried to beat the hay out of it with his feet and it withstood the pounding.
