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 Legacy XP3 XCH is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Hold Up I have had this saddle for 2 or 3 years. I have a 17" with a long flap. I had owned 2 other pessoas in the past, and I was initially impressed with the saddle. But as time went on, the saddle quickly deteriorated. At first it was just where the seat met the skirt (a very easily worn area on every saddle) but then my stirrup leathers wore away the leather on the knee pads. It was only 1.5/2 years old at the time and I already had a major hole in my saddle. After talking to other riders about the newer pessoas, they were also disapointed in the leather quality and durability. This saddle was not worth the money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh... I ordered a test ride of this saddle and was very disappointed. When compared to an older pessoa I have been riding in, this saddle is mediocre. There is less stitching per inch than my older Rodrigo and the quality of the leather is "eh". In the older Pessoa, and in many other saddles, the keeper for the stirrup leather is stitched onto the saddle flap. On this saddle, there is just one stitch on the underside of the flap keeping that loop attached. (picture a bracelet clasp). Although it was comfortable to ride in (but not as comfortable as the older Pessoa) and fit my horse well, I was not going to spend over $2000 for this saddle. It didn't look like it would hold up at all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Low Pomel This is a very nice saddle and has very good quality leather and workmanship.  Sadly, I have found the Pessoa line (which I personally really like) of saddles just do not have a lot of clearance over the withers which is an issue for me with my new OTTB.  So, although this saddle did not work for my and my horse, it is still a very nice saddle and very well built.  I rode 3-4 times per week for almost three years in my previous Pessoa and you could hardly see any wear marks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pessoa Legacy XP3 XCH Very comfortable saddle, nice quality leather. I found the gullet plates a little tricky to change, especially going from medium to wider widths. SmartPak was great to work with even allowing me extra time to try the saddle since I needed to get a wider plate. Actually being able to ride in the saddle for several days was great. Thank you so much!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE the feel of this saddle I just bought this, and thought I died and went to riding-heaven the first time I rode in it. As far as rider fit, this is by far the best saddle I've ridden in over the years. It instantly put me in a perfect position for H/J. This saddle is ideal for jumping -- it made me feel like rising up into a half-seat was "right," and I have never felt more secure over fences. The degree of closeness (especially through the flaps) was also awesome for flatwork. I was glued to my horse, in flawless position, and it was so easy! The reason why I didn't give this saddle a 5 is because of the fit & value -- since I needed a Wide tree, I had to order the gullet separately and add that to the price of the saddle (which came with a medium). I'd really like to see Pessoa offer all gullet sizes included with these models, because that's why people buy changeable gullets! Additionally, even with the wide gullet, my saddle fitter recommended I get it reflocked with wool. My horse is very difficult to fit, so I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem for most horses, but it would have been nice to have a wool option available to purchase. Otherwise, no complaints -- everyone who has seen this comments on how beautiful it is, and the balance is impeccable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saddle Review This saddle fit my 16.2 quarter horse well with the standard sized gullet that comes with the saddle. The saddle has a comfortable seat and places your leg in a natural position. I was able to 'test ride' this saddle using SmartPak's test ride program and would highly recommend the 'test ride' program for anyone searching for a new saddle. I was able to 'test' a new saddle and the process is very easy. The 'test ride' program is a wonderful program and it is a shame other companies don't model SmartPak's program, as I would recommend SmartPak's 'test ride' program to anyone! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saddle! I got this saddle to test ride and I loved it!! I rode in it once and it put me in a nice position and it was REALLY comfortable. It fit my extra wide QH very well (with the XW gullet). It is a really pretty saddle and I like the calf skin knee rolls and seat. I would have kept it if it fit my leg..My thigh is long and my knees were hanging over the knee rolls.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfy saddle EVER!! I love this saddle-had it for just over a year and it's the best! And the ability to change the gullet to make it narrower or wider is a big plus...the salesperson at the store helped me change the gullet to a wider one and it fits my slightly wide QH/Appaloosa perfectly! It's so comfortable and has a very secure feeling to it, which is especially helpful when jumping courses with tighter turns or when I drop my stirrups because i don't feel like I'm off balance at all. I also feel more in-sync with my horse and his movements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, well-balanced saddle! This saddle is gorgeous - the leather is soft and supple, and the stitching is very attractive. I sat in it at the store and fell in love, and I couldn't believe how well I was able to ride when I put it on my horse. It was super supportive and put me in a great position, both between and over the jumps. I was able to recover on landing much quicker than in my old saddle. The best part for me is the changeable gullet, which is really easy to do. I have a few horses to ride, and while I don't change it every day, it is nice that I can use this saddle on a narrow TB as well as a chunky WB.
