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.

    M. Toulouse Annice Close Contact Saddle with Genesis System is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good Saddle I've had this saddle for a couple months and I really like it. I love the adjustability. I am very short and my horse has a flat, barrel back with no withers, and she's tiny. This made it extremely difficult to find a saddle that could fit us both well. The genesis system, short flaps, adjustable knee rolls and thigh blocks made it happen. The leather is great quality, very soft, however, the quality and value got a downgrade from me because the lining on the panels is not leather. It is some sort of synthetic material. The saddle is sold as an all leather saddle and after you oil it the lining is a different color from the rest of the saddle. I'm more concerned with the function, so I'm keeping it, but it is something that should be mentioned in the description. I use half chaps and have not found the pinching to be a problem, but without half chaps the saddle does pinch.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was great until I keep riding I bought this saddle 4 months ago and it went great for the test ride. The more I rode, the more I noticed that the buckle under the flap for the stirrup leathers was rubbing my calfs so bad I had bruises. The flap is also too short and kept getting the top of my boots caught, throwing me off balance. Nice saddle but too painful for my taste. Its going back...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saddle! Purchased a little over a year ago for my (growing) 3 year old Thoroughbred. It fits her great and I have our local saddler come out ever now and then to re-adjust the Genesis tree, which has been a lifesaver because her wither and back is constantly growing and changing! The leather quality is great and is an overall good saddle.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not meet expectations My mom has a Toulouse dressage saddle that I really like, so being in the market for a budget friendly jumping saddle, I decided to try the Annice close contact. Almost everything about this saddle looks promising. Nice supple leather, cushy seat, plus the genesis tree which allows you to switch from narrow, regular, and wide so that no matter the horse the saddle will fit! However, there is one MAJOR problem with this saddle which prevented me from keeping it after my test ride. At the bottom of the outer flap there is an extra band of leather attached over the flap that pinches the middle of your calf, chaps and all. At a walk you can feel it a little but start trotting or cantering and it is a seriously uncomfortable ride. You can barely see it in the pictures but look at the zoomed in version. All I can say is that I hope someone with some power can forward on this review to the manufacturers and they can get rid of that unnecessary strap of leather. Would've been perfect if not for that!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice saddle My horse needs an xwide and really flat panels in the rear. She is a very stock APHA. This saddle was just wide enough when fully adjusted to the widest setting, but the panels were too sharp of an angle for her. The saddle is super soft and feels like butter. It was VERY fast and easy to adjust the width. It would be nice if it was totally wool flocked instead of a combination of foam and wool. I wish it would have fit her.....it seemed super nice. It was easy to purchase through smartpak and really easy to return....they were so helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from soft and comfortable saddle the softest saddle I have ever rode in. It breaks in fast , the adjustable tree is far easer to adjust than the wintec with the changable gullerts . you have to fight it get the screws into the holes. with the Geniessi system it take only a few seconds to adjust and the adjustments are small amounts at a time so you can get it purfectly adjusted to your horse. I LOVE IT

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I bought it. After a ton of searching, and my requirements being an adjustable gullet, and a short enough flap to accommodate my lack of height, I narrowed it down to this saddle. I took a jump of faith, and bought it online without ever seeing it in person, since there's no local tack stores around me. I'm so glad I did. The leather is unbelievable, and it's so easy to custom fit it to my horse. I love having the option of adjusting it as my horse changes shape through the years. My only complaint is the billets. Very hard, not so treated leather. They have softened up with use, but don't quite fit in with the awesomeness of all the other leather. That's the only reason I gave it a four on quality. When I went on vacation, where they had a nice tack store, the leather on this saddle, compared to some other name brand saddles with a heftier price tag on them, didn't even come close. It's basically all I could ask for in a saddle. It has also opened my eyes to other M. Toulouse products, and I plan to refer to this brand for other future tack purchases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy LOVE this saddle! The genesis system allowed a custom fit to my horse. The covered leather is also super grippy, it locks my leg in place. For the price this saddle is well worth it.
