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.

    JP Korsteel Oval Link Eggbutt Snaffle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from horse seems to love this bit the horse i use this bit on salivates like crazy and sounds like he is sucking on it... seems very comfortable & happy with it. He seeks contact with it but doesnt brace and lock his jaw on it and is focused on it enough to respond well to light rein aids.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My horse loves this bit, I use it to lunge him in and he doesn't fuss with this bit or throw his head or chomp on the bit throughout the workout. Amazing quality for an amazing price.
    Date published: 2017-09-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my young horse My horse has a smaller palate as she is an Arab. After using various regular snaffle bits, I switched to the double jointed and it made a huge difference. Bit is heavy and very smooth.
    Date published: 2017-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made, sturdy This bit is made well, and is exactly what I hoped it would be. The price is better than any other offered out there.
    Date published: 2017-06-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse loves it! I've always ridden my young appendix mare in a regular jointed egg butt snaffle but she recently began avoiding contact on the bit while doing collection work so I thought I'd switch it up a bit. The first time I rode her in this she was like a differnt horse. Moving into the contact beautifully and willingly! She and I are both happier now!
    Date published: 2017-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse likes this bit I have several of these JP Korsteel bits and am very pleased with their quality. Best of all. my horse likes them, too! The bits are slightly curved for comfort, and the lozenge is more comfortable than a regular snaffle.
    Date published: 2017-03-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit for the price! I purchased this bit for my three year old Arabian. Because of his low palate I could nolonger use a regular snaffle. Since I have been riding him in this bit he was been working much better. Happy horse, happy rider!!
    Date published: 2016-10-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! Fantastic useful bit! I will definitely be using this to start green horses in as well as older more experienced ones.
    Date published: 2016-09-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely balanced, horse loves it! My two younger horses love this bit! Did have a regular snaffle but both weren't in love with them. Ended up buying two of these. At this price, why not?
    Date published: 2016-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit for the price I bought this but several weeks ago as the jointed snaffle I was using was causing bracing in my mare. It was suggested I try a smaller but and go with a french link. This bit has made a huge difference for my girl. She is now supple, uses her back, and generally enjoys working again. Also love how my reins don't get caught like with the D ring. Overall great product seems like will hold up.
    Date published: 2016-07-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit for my horse I was sent the wrong bit, so asked my trainer and he said for me to try it since it was a soft bit. Glad I did, she loved it, and works well with it.
    Date published: 2016-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse loves it I bought this to replace a regular snaffle after he tried a French link. He likes this one really well. I've had Korsteel before and they are a great bit for a great price.
    Date published: 2016-06-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but too big I recently purchased this and it is very nice quality, but it is a lot bigger then I expected. It's the right size for my horse's mouth, width wise, but the lozenge was bigger then I expected and the Eggbutt rings are just too big for my horse's little face. Luckily Smartpak has an awesome return policy and I sent it back for a refund. The only reason I didn't give this an "excellent" rating is I because I didn't actually use it, but it seems like a really good bit.
    Date published: 2016-04-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much larger in person. The size of the bit was much too large for my horse's small mouth. I have to return it. : (
    Date published: 2016-04-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My busy mouthed horse quieted with this bit. I am not a big believer in changing bits. I generally use Korsteel French links and fix my hands for the horse. I bought this about a year ago. My horse was always busy with his mouth. The first time I switched to this bit he was a lot quieter. I am a convert. This will be the first bit I use from now on.
    Date published: 2016-02-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bit but too heavy I bought this bit for my little mare and it was a heavier bit than anything she's ever had so I returned the bit without ever using it. The bit is well made, and if it had been a few ounces lighter I would have kept it.
    Date published: 2016-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, comfortable. The 5 1/2 " bit fit my Belgian WB perfectly. She seems right as ease with its contoured design. One small negative is that is squeaks a bit when tacking up. Quality steel cleans up to a polish (I dip it in her water and wipe with a towel after each ride). Looks great and excellent price.
    Date published: 2016-02-10
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting Great standard bit a basic everyone should have on hand. High quality sturdy and long lasting. I would recommend.

    Date published: 2015-11-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! Bought this because it worked in the past for one of my OTTB's. I liked how he responded so I got one of my own. It is a nice size that allows some extra brakes without being violent or harsh. Wonderful bit and my boy loves it.
    Date published: 2015-10-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product, arrived on time and the fit is good, I like the quality of the steel
    Date published: 2015-06-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice alternative to plain eggbutt snaffle Our trainer had recommended this bit for our Arabian mare, who has a mouth like a warmblood. We borrowed one and liked that she doesn't get as strong with my daughter, who is still learning suppleness and bending in her dressage work. I like that it is still soft like an eggbutt and applies even pressure to the horse's tongue. The bit itself is a nice quality. We just ordered our own.
    Date published: 2014-11-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I was looking for a gentle bit for my Arabian mare to ride in both Dressage and endurance. I had a D-ring with a similar mouthpiece but my reins kept getting caught around the corners. This egg-butt elimiates that but I still get the nice mouth piece. My horse has accepted it just fine!
    Date published: 2014-09-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit ever Really simple and mild for my 5 year old :) Love this bit
    Date published: 2013-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit Solid bit, mare seems to like it. I'd borrowed a different lozenge bit that was a 5.5" and was a little too big, and a different 5" bit that was a little too small. Since I couldn't find this bit anywhere in the US in a 5.25" (for under $100), I first ordered the 5.5". It was very big. The 5", though, fits perfectly. So, I guess I would say that, although inches can't change, this bit fits a little bigger than it's actual measurements--at least as compared to the others I tried from different companies.
    Date published: 2013-10-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Bit I bought my horse in January of 2013 and just started riding her in a bit again this September (2013). In the meantime I was doing Parelli in a Parelli rope halter. My horse accepted this bit right off the bat. I used Happy Mouth bits on her before and she always fidgeted with them. She does not fidget with this bit. It fits true to size and is well made. The price is great too.
    Date published: 2013-10-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfortable!!! So pleased with the low profile. Very easy to adjust the fit. And doesn't look like a melon on your head;)
    Date published: 2013-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bit! Me and my trainer both use this bit! We can use it on the more difficult horses or the sweet, old schooling ponies! Super nice and great quality! Also very soft and simple, so it can be used all around!
    Date published: 2013-07-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad bit I liked this bit quite a lot, but my horse definitely prefers a flat french link to this bit. Great quality as expected from Korsteel! A bit squeaky because horses love to chew this bit, but that doesn't bother me.
    Date published: 2013-06-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this bit for training the retired racehorse I just adopted because I wanted something mild, flexible and slightly different from what she would have raced in. So far it seems to agree with her very well and I am very happy with my purchase. My only complaint would be that it squeaks a lot, but I've never used anything buy single jointed snaffles before so maybe the squeakiness is normal for this kind of bit?
