Why We Love This

Made with apricot oil, Knotty Horse™ Apricot Oil Treatment & Detangler reduces grooming time, increases softness and provides immediate shine for fast results you can see and feel. This concentrated treatment helps to infuse deep moisture into the hair cuticle with the nourishing and luxurious treatment of apricot oil. Naturally containing Omega Fatty Acids and Vitamins A & E, apricot oil helps soften hair, imparts radiant shine, helps prevent mane and tail breakage and detangles with a weightless feel without the wait time. Results last up to 10 days and can be applied to your horse's wet or dry hair. Damaged, dehydrated and tangled manes and tails become manageable, silky and moisturized. In just one use, your horse's hair will become noticeably softer and healthy-looking.

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.

    Knotty Horse™ Apricot Oil Treatment & Detangler is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Silicone-based detangler makes hair dry & brittle Although the description gives the impression that this detangler is a natural blend of oils it is mainly silicone. It seemed to work well at first and did a good job detangling without being greasy or attracting dust. I’m sensitive to scent and this product was not overpowering, which was also a plus. However, after a week or two (using small amounts every few days) my horse’s long thick mane was breaking off because it had become so dry & brittle. My take is that this should be fine as an occasional detangler but should not be used on a daily or regular basis.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Singing Praises Since Day 1 This product made a huge difference to my horse's thin, straggly tail the instant I put it on. I don't know how it's possible, but her tail looked fuller after the first application. It most definitely reduces breakage and her tail is getting longer and thicker as a result. Unlike other reviewers, I can't stand the way it smells, but that is a small price to pay for an absolutely gorgeous tail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not greasy or oily, smells yummy I use this on my mares forelock, doesn't drip into her eyes, and absorbs nicely into her hair. It smells delicious. I use the spray version for her mane and tail and it does a nice job conditioning and hydrating her hair.
    Date published: 2018-08-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy smartpak is carrying this line! I really love the knotty horse line. I love the that it has minimal ingredients! 2 of my 3 horses break out in crazy hives with the eqyss line, so I was a bit hesitant trying something else but so Glad I did! It smells lovely, not greasy, absorbs fast and most importantly detangles really well! I only brush my “kids” tails once in a blue moon so having something that detangles well is super important so I’m damaging their tails. Their manes and tails are incredibly soft and shinny after and stay soft for several days! The shampoo is awesome too! It’s not the cheapest but a little goes a long way. Plus it works wonders in my own unruly hair!
