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.

    Mattes Half Pad with Rear Trim- Dressage is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, it's worth it I must have placed this item in my cart and removed 10 times over the past year. How could it actually be worth the price? Is it really THAT good? Yes. This is a well made pad that holds up and provides supreme comfort. I use under my dressage saddle, and it fits very well. I panicked one day after the edge creeped past my saddle pad and got all sweaty. I let it dry, brushed it off, and you couldn't even tell! This pad is durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought it a few weeks ago. Got the extra large. Fits my 18 and a 1/2 inch dressage saddle great. Doesn't slip at all
    Date published: 2016-03-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried several brands, Mattes was best This is the best pad I've seen. It's so thick I'm unable to touch the base of the pad with my fingers. The real test was on my horse. He doesn't have the soreness he had with the other brand sheepskin. Night and day! The difference was so dramatic my sister-in-law is looking into purchasing the same one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! You get what you pay for when you go for the mattes pad. It is durable and stays in the right spot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps shape & is so soft! My girl and I both love this half pad. I had borrowed a Mattes pad from a friend and just had to have one of my own. I decided to purchase one with the rear trim and I love it even more! Fabulous product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from mattes half pad with rear trim-Dressage I know I will love this pad. I had recently and frequently used a Mattes half pad as a bit of support for my Warmblood. The pad provided that extra cushion over his withers and kidneys that made his workout more comfortable for him. I haven't been able to use this one due to weather, but I am looking forward to being able to use it next week. Thank you, Smart-Pak. The cost is well worth the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I had a custom Stackhouse saddle made for Lego, my upper level dressage horse.  Lego had the summer off because of my health problems.  That being said, Mr. Stackhouse told me he was going to make the saddle to fit Lego a bit larger to accommodate the muscle he would develop once training began.  I have done business with SmartPak for 2 years and have been very happy with their recommendation so I asked them about sheepskin half pads.  They recommended mattes.  I love this pad.  It is excellent quality and both Lego and I recommend it.
    Date published: 2013-11-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halfpad! These are very pricey but they are by far the best sheepskin half-pads. The sheepskin on these is much higher quality than any other half-pad out there. It stays nice and fluffy. My only complaint is that you have to order a custom pad with takes many weeks if you want the natural colored sheepskin. The price is about the same, but a much longer wait. I went with the white and am very happy with it. Also ordered the one without billet straps because I ride in a monoflap saddle. I use the dressage large for my 17.5" dressage and jumping saddles.
    Date published: 2013-11-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade to a Mattes! I thought all sheepskin half-pads were about the same until I received this as a gift. I have a custom saddle for my horse so it fits great but this half-pad has made the custom saddle fit even better! One of the great things about Mattes pads is they come in different sizes so they fit YOUR saddle. The XL works great for my 18 inch saddle. And the SpineFree design of the pad keeps the pad from bunching and compressing on my horse's back. I feel he's much more comfortable in this pad compared to my 'other' half-pad. Ignore the price of the pad. You've already spent a ton of money on your horse, vet bills, saddle, tack, treats, etc. Spend a little extra to get a great pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended This is one of the best I bought - but pricey. I get lots of compliments how nice the black pad looks with my black saddle. It has not faded. The velcro straps are much more durable then other brands.
