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'!).

    Leather Gag Cheeks is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too thick! I bought this product about a month ago. When putting the cheek pieces in my gag bit, I realized they were way too thick - the bit has to be able to slide up and down the leather cheek pieces to be effective and the rolled leather was so thick that you had to pull really hard to get the bit to slide. My bit is very standard (just a regular snaffle gag), so I have to assume the hole size is pretty standard too. I fixed the problem with tons of leather oil and working the bit up and down the leather until it broke in a little, but it was a lot of work! Other than that, the leather is good quality and they came very quickly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too big The cheeks wouldn't fit through my bit. The leather quality was poor. I sent them back.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy and attractive. I purchased the leather gag cheeks to replace a nylon cord set that had rather flimsy leather attaching it to the headstall. (Those broke.) These are very sturdy looking and attractive. They are wider than 5/8" though and I am having difficulty fitting them to a headstall. They don't slide easily yet so I need to break them in.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from way too thick these were way too thick to fit through the gag bit that I had ordered from Smartpak, I was extremely disappointed that they would recommend a product with the bit that was not compatible.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. Worked fine. Only quibble was unscrewing the piece that holds the buckle on was a little tricky since the backing kept turning too. Have some pliers handy (and maybe a 3rd hand).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value these were a bit stiff initially but once they were lightly oiled and softened up they ended up perfect. Looks nice enough to pair with my show bridle for my jumper. Great value. I have only been using them for a few weeks so we'll see how they hold up but quality seems good so far.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality These are way too big for my gag bit, and the leather is very poor quality. The leather tore and got scraped up when I tried to fit it through the gag bit holes. They are also two different lengths. Would not recommend!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
