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 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.

    Kensington Protective Neck Rug is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality product Great option for extra fly protection from Kensington.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok This Hood does not stay attached to the fly sheet. Also robbed one of her horses shoulders Raw the first night. Perhaps just the wrong fit. Going with Rambo
    Date published: 2016-08-02
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird fit I'd say my horse has a pretty average build. He's a 16 hand warmblood and even though I bought the large it was super right under the neck. Plus there isn't much coverage under the neck which is wear the gnats get my guy. The attachment goes way down on to the sheet. Overall the fit just seems odd. Probably should have returned it as I have no intention of using it. I purchased a Rambo Vamoose sheet as well and am so much happier with fit. The rambo has belly cover, great loose neck and shoulder coverage and my guy doesn't sweat in it. The Kensington is a nice fabric and it tents so air can flow nicely but it still seems hot in general.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but could be improved This neck rug is the usual great Kensington quality. Super durable. However, I wish the coverage was a bit better and, like the sheets, the sizing is a bit of a head scratcher--I ordered two in the same color, same size and they are different--one is a little bigger than the other. (??)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits nicely It attached to blanket and fly mask so doesnt shift too much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Stays in place. No halter needed to hold it in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I have bought these every few years for my horses. They usually last 2 seasons depending on how much your horse rubs/scratches.
    Date published: 2015-07-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Last year I purchased an expensive fly sheet and within a week it had a pretty good sized rip in it. Repairs and further rips on this sheet continued all summer. My Kensington neck rug and a matching blanket I got from a friend has lasted over a month, now. It is definitely tougher, and the two were a lot less expensive.
    Date published: 2015-06-16
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from XL is not XL I ordered the XL neck rug for my draft cross (he is big but not huge). It is small for him. Quality is good and it is attractive.
    Date published: 2015-06-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice if you need it I got this with the matching fly sheet. It fit well, looked great, and I'm sure it is just as durable as the sheet. However, I decided that my horses didn't really need a neck cover, so I did return it, with SmartPak's most excellent return policy. All good, just not needed, so I can't really comment on whether it rubs, or any other issues.
