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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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.

    Pol-Cat Poultice is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pol Cat has been around a long time. Have been using it for many years, many at the racetrack use it.
    Date published: 2014-08-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I use a poultice on my horse after shows and recently ran out. I didn't want to get a large tub of something in fear that it would dry out if stored. I thought this was the right size for the right price. I sure am glad I got it! Has a little bit of menthol smell, not overpowering, goes on smooth, easy to get off either by hosing or currying. My older horse's usually stocked up legs were perfectly normal size also after using this product.
    Date published: 2013-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ Poultice Goes on easily, very smooth. Brushes off easily when dry. Reasonably priced and highly recommended!
    Date published: 2013-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Poultice I love this poultice! It is as creamy as lotion, making it easy to apply, and when I put it on my horse's legs after a tough workout he sighed, breathed deeper, and licked his lips. I can tell it relaxed him and helped him bounce back from the workout while soothing his tendons. It's easily rinsed off when it's completely dried. An awesome poultice at an awesome price - yay!
    Date published: 2012-08-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Easy To Apply This poultice smells nice & works well, but I found it is hard & thick, making it difficult to apply.
    Date published: 2012-06-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth and smells nice Feels great when applying and smells nice. Great value too.
    Date published: 2012-03-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! It really helps with inflammation, the horses seem to really enjoy when we put it on there legs.
    Date published: 2011-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone Should Have A Tub I was minutes away from calling the vet when my neighbor stopped over with her tub of Pol-Cat. My 19 year old mare had swollen rear legs from walking on a rough frozen pasture on newly trimmed feet. Two twice-daily applications of Pol-Cat on her legs and she was good as new. When I applied the first coat, she stopped eating and stood there with a look a of pure bliss on her face. Thankfully we got the snow we needed to cushion the pasture but from now on I will ALWAYS have a tub of Pol-Cat on hand!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poultice This poultice is silky smooth and goes on very easily. When dry you can easily brush it off with a soft rubber curry. It smells great too. I also love the Sore No More poultice but I think this goes on a little smoother yet because it seems a bit more wet than SNM.
    Date published: 2010-12-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I have used this poultice for 3 years and I dont think I will ever buy anything else! Cleans off great with water, or dry with a rubber curry. Keeps my reiner cool and tight. Great preventative as well as great at reducing swelling when there is an issue. A little goes a long way and its easy to apply.
    Date published: 2010-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love this poultice. The only thing I will say is that this poultice does have to be wrapped with paper bags. It does not quick dry to leave on without wraps. It is nice though with the medicated clay. I use it to wrap after heavy jumping or cross-country days.
    Date published: 2009-09-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pol-Cat worked as well as Up-Tite I have always used a brand called Up-Tite and in a pinch, ordered Pol-Cat and hoped it would work just as well. It had a similar appearance, but I actually found the Pol-Cat poultice easier/smoother to apply. Best of all, my horses' legs looked great the next morning. It does create a large amount of fine dust when you brush it off, so you might not want to do that in an enclosed area.
    Date published: 2009-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Poultice Product This is my favorite poultice brand and the one that I always buy. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice basic clay poultice that is OK with or without wraps.
    Date published: 2009-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best poultice i've used. With 5 horses in different disciplines (an open hunter, a level 7 jumper, an pre-lim eventer, a level 2/3 dressage horse and an equitation partner) and a total of 10 hard lessons a week i'm always poulticing somebody!!! my dressage horse is a 13 y/o qh and he is lovely at it. he strained a tendon this past september and pol cat was his best friend. i poulticed him every day for about 2 months. the 10lb bucket lasted all that time and never did i sit and scrub it off or un-wrap to a "dry" leg. i now poultice him every few days or so after a work out just to help keep his legs nice and tight. it does well and ::knocks on wood:: has prevented any swelling etc. With my horses averaging 4ft and high level lateral work they can use the extra help and pol cat is that little extra. thanks pol cat!!
    Date published: 2009-04-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's what your looking for I like it for my horses because you can use it without banages if you want and you can use on the bottom of the hoof too.
    Date published: 2009-04-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I Pol-Cat Poultice after my weekly lessons and at shows, since my horse and I jump in the big classes. It goes on smooth, stays wet longer, and you can feel it working as you apply it. Pol-Cat does a fantastic job keeping his legs tight and pain-free. Plus it smells good too and lasts a long time!
    Date published: 2008-11-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Better Than This There is truly no better poultice that lasts longer, stays cool and wet, and makes horses' legs incredibly smooth and tight. No hunter or jumper rider should be without this product.
    Date published: 2007-07-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on, easy off! When my vet recommended I poultice my mare's legs to help treat a case of lymphangitis, I had visions of me, my horse, and my barn aisle covered in poultice. Other brands I've used in the past were messy and just seemed to get everywhere. Not so with PolCat! It is very smooth and easy to apply, yet it is thick enough that it stays were you put it. PolCat is also surprisingly easy to remove, even without water. Just let it dry and brush it right off! This product really helped with the inflammation in my mare's legs, and the 10 lb bucket lasted through a full week of daily poulticing with lots to spare. A great product at a great value!
    Date published: 2006-11-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up I bought a tub of this when I ran out of my usual poultice and I was hooked. When my horses jump the big classes, several times a week, I need something to help keep their legs cool and tight. And I found it!
