HappinessGuarantee
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.

    Shires Ball Feeder is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy I bought a ball for my 6 year OTTB and he loves to play with it so much i bought one for my 23 OTTB to help keep him from cribbing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mare loves this! This is the best cure for boredom when my mare is stuck in her stall. She rolls it around the floor and even up the walls to get her treats. It keeps her very entertained.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My ponies love these!! I have 3 minis and I started with one of these and now am up to 3! They love them and it keeps them so busy. I use Cheerios for the minis and they get such a kick out of playing and rolling them around!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my stall bound horse I purchased this for my gelding who is recovering from a suspensory injury (I’m trying to keep him from climbing the walls ha!). It’s worked perfectly. He picked it up right away. Smelled the treats and started rolling it and pawing at it. After a few days he got better and would roll it, and then sniff around to see if any treats fell out. He’s definitely gnawed on it and stomped on it and it’s held up great. Recommend for all stalled horses!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but needs to be openable for cleaning My horse loves this and it entertains her for AGES, however it needs to have a way to open it because it's impossible to clean. It will grow moldy over time and takes ages to dry out when you do clean it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun for My Horse It has been a very rainy in Houston the past couple of years. As a result, turn out time is not a daily occurrence. I was looking for something that would help my horse pass the time in her stall. Hopefully, something that would engage her mind and encourage her to move around. I was very happy to come across this product on the SmartPak website. I read the reviews before purchasing this product, so I knew the size of the goodies put in the ball was important. Too small and the treats would pour out. Too big and the treats wouldn't come out at all. I found Manna Pro Start To Finish Apple Treats at my local feed store, and they seem to do the trick. If I had to guess, I would say each treat is about 1.5" X 0.5". Ruby happily roles her ball around her stall for hours, and the ball is empty when I get to the barn every evening. Ruby and I are very pleased.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very durable I bought this about 2 months ago and is what it looks like now
    Date published: 2019-03-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent boredom breaker! My two OTTBs LOVE this thing, I think they could play with it for hours if given the option. It rolls easily enough, but not so much that they have to chase it down. I have not had issues with treats getting stuck, in fact they come out almost too easily. I use a combination of the Standlee mini hay cube treats, Purina's nicker makers, and Horse Guard's Flix treats. It seems like the variety of shapes and sizes of treats makes it more entertaining for the horses, and they have to work slightly harder to get the treats to come out. My two mares are interested in this, but they tend to get frustrated more quickly than my OTTBs and either abandon it, or try to destroy it. So far it has held up to biting and pawing quite well. Very reasonably priced for a toy that seems like it will last a lifetime, it arrived quickly and serves its purpose. 5 stars! Thanks Smartpak!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard Pass on this one I purchased this busy ball and the amazing graze from horseman's pride. Tried them both out with my horse. We both picked the amazing graze because the Ball Feeder doesn't roll as well, doesn't dispense the treats as well, you have to put very small treats inside of it because it is hard to clean out- it doesn't have a removable lid and the mouth is small. Don't put carrots or apples in it, because they can get stuck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from an absolute must for stall rest! I bought this for my horse recovery from surgery on stall rest - I dont know how she would survive without it. She plays with it CONSTANTLY. It is hard to clean, but i'd still say its worth the money.
