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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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.

    Hydrophane Leather Dressing is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from absorbed very nicely! I have only treated my tack to 1 application of this but am very pleased how nicely it absorbed and how great my tack feels!
    Date published: 2014-10-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tack Saver! I bought a used Antares saddle last year in very poor condition (I don't know how someone could not take care of their tack!!) The seat was hideously multi-toned, and I couldn't stand to look at it (but I bought it because it is outrageously comfortable and I was on a budget, so it was that or nothing). I bought some of the Hydrophane lanolised saddle soap from my local feed store and this oil from SmartPak ASAP. I've worked my fingers to the bone on it often since I've bought it, and it totally revived my saddle! I just got done oiling it, and the seat, which I'd lost hope in, looks beautiful and the leather is so supple and awesome I cannot believe its the same saddle! I believe that this saved my investment and made it 100x better! It's also lasted me a long time. I've had the same can since last August, and I oil frequently and until my saddle stops taking it in, which takes quite a bit, and I still have a good amount left. I'm sure now that my saddle is in better condition, I'll go through it waaaaay slower. I just can't believe the difference this has made in my tack. It's a wonder product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not what I was looking for My saddle has blended for years now no matter what type of cleaner, conditioner or balm I use. I thought perhaps waterproofing may do the trick. It still bleeds but the leather does feel nice with minimal product. Boil before using for best result.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed! 17 years ago, I sold my Pessoa and bought a "value" saddle - i needed the money, i was headed to college. I rode in the value saddle about 4 times and gave up riding. The saddle sat in a box in the attic for SEVENTEEN years. It had never seen any oil... EVER! FINALLY, I began riding again, i pulled out the saddle (wishing I hadn't downgraded) and had been riding in it for several months before my trainer "yelled" at me for the stiffness of it. I was a bit embarrassed to admit, the saddle had never seen any oil. I purchased Hydrophane Leather Dressing after reading reviews and got to work - WOW! Back in the "old days", I used Fiebings Hoof Oil to soften my tack - which always left my breeches stained, and the oil left a residue everywhere. This product was amazing. It took several coats to wake up my dry saddle, but when I was done, I was amazed at the difference! I HIGHLY recommend this product!
    Date published: 2012-11-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY Leather Oil I use Simply the best. Very light, yet completely quenches dry leather - even worn out saddle billets. It doesn't darken the leather at all - keeps it the same beautiful color you love, just makes it happy again! Lasts forever too. I use this on my saddle and bridle about once a month (more in the summer) and still have my original can from 3 years ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product, I use every 6 months I find, at least at my barn, that new horse owners/riders are not taught to care for their leather. I have used this to oil to show the newbies and some of the oldies how to do it right (really good for softening unloved tack). Here is my method: -After every ride use a cream (CPR or Lederbalasm are my favorites) -Weekly (or every other week or after a dirty hunt/hack) clean with soap (any soap - glycerine is the common one, but Kirk's or Ivory is also used in some circles) use a toothbrush and get into the grooves, wipe of all sud grossness with a clean damp sponge and then apply cream. -Every six months or more depending on climate: soap and clean, OIL, then cream... I use Hydrophane. Brush it on (99 cent brushes work great and put oil in a cup), especially on the underside. May take multiple coats, but until it is not quickly absorbed. (This is where most people start, if they have never cared for their tack). Also, use a different sponge each for soap and cream (don't let dirt get in the cream one). Throw them away often, they harbor dirt. Invest in a saddle cover, get one embroidered for a snazzy look, they will keep the barn dust off of your saddle (bridle bags are cool, but I only use for travel). Lastly clean your bits and stirrups (take out the pads and place both in dishwasher) then shine with polish. Replace pads often, they are not that expensive and old rotted yellow ones are really noticeable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrophane Oil I have used Hydrophane Oil to condition all my leather tack since I was first introduced to it by the owner of a large local tack shop 25 years ago. It soaks into the leather immediately and is so light and pervasive that you don't even have to completely disassemble the tack. It also leaves no gooey residue.
    Date published: 2011-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Does what no other leather conditioner can do -- render the leather impervious to water! I started using this many years ago, and this product is amazing. I started using it on my new dressage bridle from the get-go. After conditioning with this, you can dip the leather in water and when it dries, the leather doesn't dry out. And it lasts quite a long time before you have to recondition.
    Date published: 2010-12-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Leather Luscious Again This product is excellent for breaking in new leather, restoring dry leather, and an occasional deep treatment for my normal tack. -Nothing- works quite like Hydrophane oil and the waterproofing is an added bonus! I even use it on my BF's motorcycle saddle, and with daily use on roads and in weather, it certainly takes a beating.
    Date published: 2010-06-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used hydrophane for years. I have tack that is 40 years old I treat with Hygrophane at least 2 times a year. Works great. I love it.
    Date published: 2010-04-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Hydrophane Leather Dressing is well absorbed and doesn't darken leather like some other saddle oils will. It also isn't clumpy and overly greasy like Neetsfoot Oil. This is the only oil I will use from now on!
    Date published: 2010-02-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I have used hydrophane product for years on all of my tack. After I soap my tack I brush this on.... it has protected my saddles from years of weather, rain, mud, sweat, etc. LOVE IT.
    Date published: 2010-01-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leather oil! I used Hydrophane on an a stiff, leather bridle. Within a few applications, the leather was soft and pliable. This oil absorbed into the leather quickly. I used a soft, small brush to paint it onto the leather. This seemed to eliminate any waste and made it less messy to use. It is a good product, but it is expensive to buy for the amount in the container.
    Date published: 2009-12-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dressing Really brings the life back to old leather. Readily soaks right in without leaving any greasy after affects. Simple, easy, and effective. A word of advice - unless you want your light leathers to darken, I would refrain from using this on the lighter leathers.
    Date published: 2009-10-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best for preserving leather I have used this product for at least 20 years and it never lets me down as it keeps bridles, reins, etc., supple even after being used numerous times through rain, sweat and cold weather when leather can get hard.
    Date published: 2009-09-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does an amazing job! I had been looking for a good cleaner/conditioner for an older saddle I purchased, and also to care for my regularly used/cared for tack. This stuff has been GREAT. It keeps my tack in excellent condition, waterproofed it well, and has really helped re-condition the saddle I bought. Now I've another older saddle and the Hydrophane is doing a great job yet again. Lasts a long time too, given how much I've needed to use it!
    Date published: 2009-05-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have used Hydrophane Leather Dressing for as long as I can remember and it is a wonderful product. I use it to keep my leather supple and also when I get something that is very dry. It does its job great! I would highly recommend it.
    Date published: 2008-12-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time-tested, Excellent Product I have used Hydrophane Leather Conditioner for more than 20 years. For breaking in new tack and keeping it conditioned for years and years, there is nothing that performs better. It won't rot stitching, and it waterproofs leather and keeps it supple for a lifetime. A little bit goes a long way, so it has the added benefit of being economical!
