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.

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!

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.

    Magic Cushion Xtreme Hoof Packing is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product My soon to be 39 year old horse is laminitic and has always been tenderfooted. He wears front shoes only. We've tried pads but he always ends up with thrush because water/mud gets under the pads and I can't get it out. So I tried Magic Cushion. Wow, what a difference. It protects his tender toesies and he walks without any pain or issue at all. It's terrible sticky and takes some effort to pack his feet, but it is worth it. We couldn't live without this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product Purchased to address thin, sore soles. It was easy to use and worked amazingly well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great, Very Messy for Cost I bought this at my vet's recommendation after my mare abscessed and needed the heat drawn out of her feet and lower legs. Her soundness greatly improved as her hoof grew back. However, there is a lot of waste with this product due to how sticky it is, even when you follow the video for applying. We went through the jar very quickly, and it is just too expensive to keep buying. Once she's 100% again will probably only use after hard rides (competitions, xc schools, etc).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A product that works I love magic cushion during long show weeks with lots of jumping to help hooves recover overnight, or at home when the ground gets hard to ease any pain from impact. I feel a noticeable difference in my horses after they've been packed overnight with magic cushion. It is messy, but rubber gloves are key. I also find just patting the packed hoof with a handful of shavings keeps the packing in place better than wrapping it, and then the packing doesn't ooze out and stick to everything. Love love love magic cushion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant relief! I used this on a cured case of thrush that while the infection was gone, so was most the frog. The horse seemed tender and I was worried about bacteria in the crevices that the incident left. After reading about this product I liked that it was a disinfectant as well as a pack. The first time I applied I used wrapping and ducked tape. Instantly I saw my horse relax and eyes soften. That alone would have been worth it, but after a week of the pack lasting I removed the bandages to find the foot much improved. In repacking I decided now I did not need to tape since it was so much better, just packed and let the sand seal it in, four days later with 24 hr choice turn out (open stall with fly curtains) and it is still holding. Feet are staying clean from turn out muck, hoof condition is improving and horse is more comfortable. Expensive but great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly is "Magic" Magic Cushion really is magical. I use it on sore feet or proactively when I have ridden hard and want to make sure that my horse doesn't end up with sore feet. It can be messy to apply, but I'm figuring out that a spatula and fresh clean shavings work well to apply and setup. I always keep a jar on hand.
    Date published: 2015-03-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff I think that this is a must have product especially for the hard working horses. It is messy to use so you need gloves and you need to try and not get it on the horses skin. I am trying to come up with a way of applying that makes it less messy- I will let you know if I do ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I have an older TB gelding who can get somewhat footsore after shoeing and or jumping on some surfaces....Magic cushion really works and is pretty easy to use. I recommend watching the video that Absorbine has on YouTube for some excellent hints on application. We simply put a small amount on his sole and let his bedding adhere to it...he even goes out all night like that. The only thing the company doesn't tell you is how to remove Magic Cushion when it gets on the horse's hair, skin or on your hands...My vet suggested W-40 and it works great!! We just keep a can on hand to remove any errant globs since the product can be gooey and is irritating to soft tissues. It really noticeably reduces his foot soreness
    Date published: 2014-10-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for sore feet I have used this product for some time as an alternative to the dental impression material in my horses feet. It seems to work great and my horses overall sole health has improved. It is extremely messy to work with however and it is a shame there isnt some way to be able to pump it into the foot after a shoe has been put on as it seems to only last about three weeks of a five week shoeing.
    Date published: 2014-06-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product but MESSY!!! I've used this product a couple of times now and it's EXTREMELY messy. Even with gloves on it's hard to get into the hoof. My farrier loves it though and told me once I get it in there take some shavings and push them into the hoof to secure the packing in there. I turn my horse out all of the time and it stayed in for 24 hours just fine. I fine Forshners Hoof Packing a little easier to use though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It truely IS Magic!!! Magic Cushion is the BEST hoof packing EVER! I use it religiously on my previously tender footed Thoroughbred racehorse who has gone on to become a winner due to his feet not bothering him any more! Because of the turn-around in his performance the other runners on the farm now get packed regularly. it's extremely helpful immediately before and after raceday. This hoof packing also helped tremendously in transitioning my OTTB mare from a lifetime of wearing shoes to "the best barefoot Tb" my farrier states he has ever seen. it work wonders on concussion and stone bruises, drawing, healing and relieving the pain of an abscess, heat and soreness after shoeing or trimming and just about ANY hoof related issue you can imagine. HELPFUL HINT for all of those complaining about this (and the original formula) being messy... yes it is so wear gloves and if it gets on you or your horse don't panic! Baby oil removes it the best. And for those really stubborn dried spots like elbows and bellies leave the baby oil on overnight and it wipes / washes right off!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! My mare had a stone bruise on her hoof. I used the Magic Cushion and within a few days she was sound again. Nice part was I didn’t have to wrap the hoof! Watch the video and see how they pack it with shavings! Wonderful! Used it again on my other mare, she had soft tissue swelling inside her hoof. I applied the Magic Cushion to the outer hoof, used bute, and stall rest… WOW! She was feeling better in no time (5 days or less). Up to this point she has been lame for weeks! First mare is getting her hind shoes off tomorrow. Vet said to pack the hooves with this while she is in her stall to prevent soreness. Can’t hurt. Nice part is it stays on without wrapping etc… outer hoof and bottom!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's called Magic for a Reason This stuff is truly amazing..my mare is now barefoot because of issues in her coffin joint...with pain and heat in her feet. I just pull a wad of the Magic Cushion from the jar and smear it all over her sole and into the collateral grooves. I do this in her stall and then put her foot down into the shavings. Instantly, it's packed in there..no need for vet wrap and duct tape...it stays on over night and in the morning...no heat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% Love this product I recently purchased a 5 y/o Thoroughbred who came off the track about 7 weeks ago. She was just tossed into a field, shoes weren't pulled, and needless to say her feet were in pretty rough shape when I picked her up. After getting her feet taken care of she was quite foot sore and was visibly lame at the walk. After packing her feet overnight with Magic Cushion Extreme there was an incredibly change in her soundness level. She was by no means 100%, but the difference was VERY noticeable and she was much more comfortable. After the second night of packing her feet she was sound at the walk and only slightly off at the trot. I can't wait to see the difference after a couple more nights of packing her feet. Highly recommend this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sticky & goopy A bit disappointed about buying this after personal recommendations and good reviews on smart pak. Magic cushion is a goopy sticky mess that will not come off the fur on my horse's fetlock. I did not see any difference after using it.
    Date published: 2013-04-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Works really well if my horse gets sore or if we are riding in a limestone base footing. I like it a lot better then the regular magic cushion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is great! Does a great job soothing my horse's feet after running cross country. Definitely wear gloves when working with it because it's sticky, but it smells great and works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fence nail in RH foot My 15 year old eventer got a nail in his foot this past winter. He couldn't have gotten it in a worse but better place. it was about 1cm away from puncturing his navicular bursa and thus losing his life. We immediately rushed him to the vet clinic and began pumping antibiotics in him. we tourniquet his lower leg with antibiotics and injected the navicular bursa with concentrated antibiotics after praying as we watched the x-rays come out. we were thankful it went where it did. after 10 days at the hospital, $2800 and buckets of magic cushion extreme later-he was back to competing at the prelim level. I also use this after every event. it goes in the same trunk as our game ready system, leg sweats, bute, poultice & liniment. it's all we need. its great after any jump lesson, XC clinic, or show jumping round. its great stuff, does not test and the horses react great to it.
