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'!).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too thick Unfortunately the width of this was too big to fit through the korsteel rubber gag that I also bought from smartpak

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best gag action... I'm not completely satisfied with these cheeks. I took a risk with the leather knowing that the gag action might not be as good as the rope cheeks. I don't think these give the best gag action, if that's what you are looking for. I'm using them with an egg butt snaffle gag, and I would say the bit action is more of that of just an eggbutt snaffle. Also these are not the easiest to install with the tiny screws.

    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.
