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.

    Heavy Cotton Lead is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 176.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Soft and thick. Great length for my draft cross. holding up well to being outside. Nice bright blue color.
    Date published: 2019-05-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and effective I enjoy using this lead rope. It’s very strong and is very effective in its use. The buckle is heavy duty as well.
    Date published: 2019-05-19
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super Disappointed I loved the look and feel of this when in arrived, but it started falling appart after only a few uses. The rope up near the snap where it is secured to itself has frayed and come loose, making it virtually useless if I had to apply any pressure on the lead at all. I guess the price reflects the quality here, I'll go for something a little more expensive next time!
    Date published: 2019-02-01
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Use to love this lead rope I have several of these leads(some in black & some in white). I've even given them as gifts & everyone is always pleased. It's a very soft a typically durable lead rope, however the newer versions of them just aren't as good as the ones from previous years. As others have said they fray right away. They still are useful but they do begin to unravel very shortly after your first use. Hopefully they can get them back to the way they were before because I am a huge fan of them. I checked yes that I would recommend this to a friend because it still is a very good lead rope. It just needs to be durable again like it was when I first started buying them all those years ago.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Want to love it, but it falls apart too quickly I have ordered a bunch of these lead ropes over the years because they only last for a short time before they fall apart and start to fray despite gentle use. I want to love them, as I like the softness, thickness, and length, but they just don't last. My newest one started to fray the second day I used it.
    Date published: 2018-10-21
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent rope, but falls apart The ends of the rope fray apart as they are tied together by more cotton rope and that comes off when you use the rope.
    Date published: 2018-07-09
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came apart in 10 minutes! Maybe a manufacturer defect but I used this for about 10 minutes for some groundwork and the wrap around the buckle almost immediately began to unravel! A bummer because it’s a nice, soft and long lead rope and love the burgundy color. Definitely sending back!
    Date published: 2018-06-09
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed Bought this lead in purple and I was thrilled when it arrived. Nice and long. Thick. Soft. Overall -- perfect! Until it started unraveling less than 2 hours later. Literally fell apart in my hands. I returned it and bought another in black, thinking it was the production of that particular color that was faulty? Well, the black was shorter, much thinner/lighter, and not nearly as soft. At least it hasn't fallen apart. There has to be a long, thick, soft cotton lead out there somewhere, but I haven't found it yet.
    Date published: 2018-05-12
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second one to come apart I bought one of these leads and it started to come apart within a month of use. I returned it to Smartpak and got a replacement, hoping the first problem was a fluke. I've used the second one for 6 months and it also is coming apart. Definitely not up to Smartpak's usual high quality.
    Date published: 2018-05-03
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same I have bought these leadkines in the past and have been very happy with them. However the most recent ones I ordered were made with thinner, less sturdy rope and do not seem to be as long.
