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.

    MDC S Flex Stirrup is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade I’ve been extremely pleased with these so far. There’s plenty of room and a solid grip on my boot. I like the weight of them but you need them secure when lunging because they can scratch up your saddle. I jump and I like feel of the flexible section. The price point on good stirrups is pretty high making these worth the money and for me, a very solid upgrade from the cheap composite stirrups I’ve been riding on. I would buy them again.
    Date published: 2018-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtfully Designed These stirrups ended up being a cross between a pair of MDC Classic (which were too heavy) and a composite stirrup with cheese graters that unsafely stuck my boot to the bottom of the stirrup. The MDC S flex is wonderful compromise in weight, safety and comfort. The metal grated surface releases my boot appropriately while the weight of the stirrup makes it easy to "find" if you loose it while riding. I'm still getting used to the "flex" feature. I don't feel my foot is a stable as with a regular stirrup, but a painful glute muscle cramping has resolved since I started using the MDCs. That makes it worth my working on my wiggly foot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Well Designed I really love this stirrup -my leg stays in a good place and it feels very secure on my foot .
    Date published: 2018-01-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and secure Bought these stirrups to see if they would be more secure and comfortable. I have a pinched nerve in my foot and long hours in the stirrups aggravate it. First ride I felt right away that these were an excellent choice. Super support and very secure. I bought the 4.5" width. I wear an 8.5/9 in women's paddock boots and its still roomy enough to adjust the placement of my foot but not too big. While schooling my jumper he spooked and got big and squirrely, my grip and foot stayed super secure and I was absolutely confident in the security of my leg with these stirrups. Planning on buying a 2nd pair for my other saddle. Love the wide footbed and aluminum grippy pad. The jointed pivot points allow complete fluid transfer of weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've had these stirrups for couple of weeks now and I like them. They absorb weight of downward momentum and stays down better than lightweight stirrups.
    Date published: 2017-08-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Stirrups I had the MDC Ultimate Stirrups and liked them but wanted something with a wider tread. I got these and LOVE them!! I put your leg at the perfect angle and my foot feels very secure. Totally worth the money!
    Date published: 2017-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUALITY I bought these recently and they are the first pair of stirrups I have purchased for myself. I have struggled with knee, ankle, and back pain over my years of riding and these stirrups really eliminate the pain! I also find that my knee lays much nicer on my close contact saddle due to the angled top of the stirrups and my knees are no longer falling out/away from the saddle. I can tell the rubber joints are very high quality and I feel like they won't crack like stirrups I have used in the past. I have really been enjoying these stirrups so far and can't find any negative things to say!
    Date published: 2017-03-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! It took me a long time to commit to buying these. I stayed away from these for several months due to the price tag but it was well worth the money. I have had two foot surgeries and have damage to my knee and ankle joints. These stirrups help me stay "sound"!
    Date published: 2016-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stirrup ever I was still using older style stirrups. These are so awesome and my toes don't go numb anymore. I love the flex and the wide base!
    Date published: 2016-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stirrup. I bought this stirrup for my daughter who had trouble with keeping proper foot placement. Since getting the MDC Flex her feet no longer slip forward nor does she lose them when riding. They are comfortable, don't scratch the saddle and have made a big difference in her riding. Worth the money.
