Why We Love This

Lucky Braids Handy Salve is an effective treatment for horses prone to tail rubbing, bug bites, scratches, itching, rubs and more. This salve quickly promotes healthy skin from every direction by reducing inflammation, soothing, cooling, moisturizing skin and nourishing the roots of the hair. This light lotion also promotes the regrowth of hair on the sites of superficial wounds and abrasions.
Lucky Braids Handy Salve can also be a great solution for dogs suffering from hot spots.

Handy Salve is great for existing issues. To help prevent reoccurrence of these skin issues it is recommended to follow your Handy Salve treatment with the Lucky Braids All-In-One Shampoo.

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.

    Lucky Braids Handy Salve is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail for Tails The tail scratching and rubbing has been out of control. We've done it all and then tested it all to no avail. I love the Lucky Braids shampoo so much, I thought this was worth a go, especially with its specific claims to soothe and heal tail rubs. I was not disappointed and the claims were not kidding! It worked! Not only have they stopped rubbing, the hair is also starting to grow back. (Insert hallelujah emoji here!)
    Date published: 2018-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for hot spots! I bought this for my Great Pyrenees because of a hot spot she had on her neck. I applied it twice a day for a week and the results were AMAZING! Totally recommended to anyone with sores or anything. It has a nice smell and my dog did not seem to be bothered by it!
    Date published: 2017-11-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Nice consistency...worked very well on scabbed areas on legs. Scabs dried and loose by the next day.
    Date published: 2017-08-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me This is my second tube. Yes, you do need it daily on their tails. It is the only thing I have found that helps my horse's tail. I will continue to use it as longs as it helps with the itch of his tail
    Date published: 2017-07-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! This product does appear to be working to deter my gelding from scratching the hair from the top of his tail. The hair is growing back also! Great product! Highly recommend!!
    Date published: 2017-06-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Promotes hair growth My go-to product for blanket rubs. Quickly promotes hair regrowth. Smells yummy. Works fast.
    Date published: 2017-02-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the a smell and texture I bought this product because my mare has been tail rubbing and so far it seems to sooth the itch. It's not been the most economical solution for our application since I have to use quite a bit to cover her tail dock but I would order it again for another use.
    Date published: 2015-09-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Even though it's a bit pricey, a little goes a long way. It completely stopped my horse's tail rubbing, and is great on dry dandruffy spots, bug bites, scabs and rubs. It didn't seem to help with scratches - they went almost completely away but kept coming back. I always keep a bottle of this in my groom box.
    Date published: 2014-10-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cured the incurable My horse had weird dry skin under his "armpits" and nothing was helping it. Not MTG, not medicated shampoo, nothing. A SmartPaker recommended this Handy Salve and after a couple applications his dry spots started to clear up. I'm happy and so is he! I've started using it on everything! I just wish it was less expensive.
    Date published: 2014-10-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I bought this because I could not stop my guy from rubbing his tail. Used in conjunction with the lucky braids shampoo he no longer rubs and the hair is already growing back after only a few uses! I will always have this salve on hand!
