At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
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.

    Pessoa GenX Natural XCH is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New English Saddle I bought this saddle to begin English riding. Very nice saddle.
    Date published: 2017-12-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! I bought this saddle used about 1 year ago. It has held up very well, and fits my uneven shoulder, roundish withered Arab. I absolutely love the padding, and would take this saddle over a bevel, butet, Antares, etc any day. If you are doing rated shows though, I might suggest something a little more like a Voltaire or cwd

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, nice leather A nice, classic close contact saddle that I'm told will retain its value because of the Pessoa name. Tree and medium gullet too narrow for my bigger horse , not as comfy for me as MT. Good value if it suits you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pessoa I bought this saddle almost half a year ago and I'm very pleased with it. This was my second Pessoa so I was expecting a nice high quality, comfortable saddle and that's just what I got. Over the few months of having it, it has held up very well. It was a super easy fit to my high wither Thoroughbred mare. Highly reccomend this saddle to anyone looking for a new saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable right out of the box I love this saddle! It is the first brand new saddle I have purchased and it is beautiful. I have never had a calfskin saddle, but I highly recommend it. It gives me an extra bit of grip that helps me feel my horse better. I have struggled for a long time to feel my leads without looking, and this saddle gives me that extra amount of stick in the saddle that allows me to feel my horse without sliding around on slippery leather. The color is darker than the picture, which I was glad to see since it looked a little orangey for my taste in the photo. In person, it is a nice medium chocolate. Prestige leathers in tobacco match it perfectly! You cannot beat the quality of this saddle for the price! Pessoa is exceptional and SmartPak's saddle testing program is the BEST!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I test rode in this saddle and loved the whole experience. The test ride program from SmartPak makes everything so easy because I could actually saddle up and really ride in the saddle! I really liked this Pessoa. I felt that the twist was a normal size and the leather was nice and soft and grippy. I didn't like the color of the leather (more orange where I like more chocolate color), but I did think it was good quality. Yes you could see small rubs where the stirrup leathers had sat when I got off, but they disappeared when I just rubbed them with my fingers so I think the leather would just need some conditioning. The test ride saddle was a 17" with regular flaps. I'm 6'2" so I knew I would need to order the longer flaps. I thought I would also need the forward flaps, but this saddle actually ride quite forward already so I didn't order the long/forward, just long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice platform for good eq I received the test ride model of this saddle today, so while I can't attest to the durability, I can say that the quality seems excellent. It comes in a pretty color, a sort of medium brown, not a chocolate/havana but also not orangey. I'm sure it would oil to a little bit of a darker shade, but I'm mot certain since oiling a trial saddle is not allowed. I rode in it today and it is very supportive, not super squishy but comfortable all the same and keeps my legs very still even though the 17 inch trial size is too small. This saddle seems very durable, a trooper of sorts like I've been looking for. The calfskin is soft but at the same time is sturdy and doesn't feel like it will peel off after a year like the M.T.'s. I was looking for a saddle that is comfy, sets me up for a good position, fits me and fits my horse. The trial doesn't fit me as afore mentioned, but I've sat in the 17.5 forward flap and that fits me well (5'8'' and 130 lbs, with long legs). It also fits my horse, and he's just under 16hh, a warmblood cross but not too chunky with an average back. As I said, I wanted a reliable saddle that can take me to the show ring and is comfy and durable, and this saddle fits the bill.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable but not for me This saddle is very comfortable to ride in. It is also beautifully designed. However the twist was very wide giving me a feeling of riding in a western saddle and losing touch with my horse. The leather is very thick and made of a high-quality leather but because of this trait it was hard for me to keep my leg where I wanted it. I feel this saddle is more suited for a trail saddle than a jumping saddle. The calf skin is nice and grippy but caution must be taken because it scratches and shows wear very easily. I love that SmartPak has the ride program and very thankful they let me try this saffle out and ship it back for free. It is just not for me
    Date published: 2014-07-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality saddle Love the saddle. Very comfortable and great fit for me. I had a challenge changing the gullet but it was my first experience. Customer service was excellent!
    Date published: 2014-04-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice saddle I've had this saddle for about 2 months. It cleans up beautifully after every ride - marks from the stirrup leathers come right out and it looks brand new again. I love the soft grippy leather and the way the flap is designed. I feel very secure in it while jumping and I think it has really helped my equitation. When conditioned, it darkens slightly (just temporarily, at least with Leather CPR) and looks almost like an Antares. I also like the extra touch of flair that the stitching on the back edge of the skirt and flap gives it. This saddle is exactly what I was looking for when I move up to the rated hunter/eq shows next summer. All in all, it seems like a very nice saddle, and I would recommend it.  Extra note on sizing: If you have longer legs (particularly long thighs) you may want an extended flap version. Mine is the regular, but if my legs were much longer my knees would be past the edge of the flap.
