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.

    ShowSheen Hair Polish is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 167.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described, & part of my weekly routine Use this once a week on our reiners manes and tails. Keeps it strong, healthy, slick, and shines. Makes a very noticeable difference and is perfect for show horses especially. I will always have a show sheen bottle in my tack box. Only complaint is that the bottle came with a leaky top, but SmartPak replaced it right away.
    Date published: 2018-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proven quality Keeps my horse not too muddy in winter! I would recommend to mix this with human hair 'silk' spray - the shine and coat protection lasts longer.
    Date published: 2017-12-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Part of Tack Box and/or Grooming Kit How I love show sheen. I use it on both my horses mane and tails and there body in the summer months. It smells so good and keeps them looking really good. I use it before braiding their tails for turnout in the muddy months when we don't have flies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for detangling mane and tail! I like to keep a supply of the Show Sheen refill on hand. Just spray it on my horse's mane and tail and it helps detangle to get the comb and brush through!
    Date published: 2017-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well! Have been using this product for some time. Really like the way it shines and smooths out my horses mane and tail, AND the Detangling!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good title Have been using this product since 1990 and have always been satisfied. In the winter you have to keep it from freezing.
    Date published: 2017-06-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for dogs too! I'm a dog groomer and use this as a coat detangler and scissoring spray. It can even be cut with water and works great! Works just as well diluted on my horse too
    Date published: 2017-06-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for tangled tails I have used Show Sheen strictly for mane and tails. It is a quick fix to a tangled tail which happens all the time in the fly season. I have tried Mane and Tail detangler and find I have to wait a while for it to work. I saw no improvement in the tail with the latter. Maybe I am impatient. I like Show Sheen because it works so quickly.
    Date published: 2017-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Tried it out once and I can never go back- works amazing as a mane and tail conditioner, brush slides right through. I also use this on the coat as to keep my mare's coat clean

    Date published: 2017-03-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Showsheen Showsheen has been a staple in my grooming bag for awhile now. I love using this product on a horse's body right before clipping, espically in the colder months where I do not bathe-the clippers slide very nicely! This product also is wonderful for tail detangler after a bath, and you can notice a smooth tail for days after! Great for right before a show, you never have to worry about picking out knots! Many reasons to love the classic showseen spray!
    Date published: 2017-02-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never Brush Without It! I don't know how I ever groomed mane and tail without it! Mane and tail take SO LONG to grow, show sheen helps brush or comb glide right through without pulling, keeps them soft, shiny and well-conditioned. Groom Tote Staple.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps tails tangle free I always use sheen on my horse's white tail before brushing. It prevents bad tangles and keeps his hair from breaking.
    Date published: 2016-06-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Tail! I bought this to replace a different brand and was delighted to find it was offered in a spray type bottle, almost like an aerosol. It delivered the product better to the tail in a finer spray so all areas got covered. Works great like other show sheen products and travels easier than the pump bottle.
    Date published: 2016-05-06
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I used show sheen for many years, but recently the formula seems to have changed and it doesn't work as well as it used to.
    Date published: 2016-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny coat! I have tried several similar products but alway come back to Show Sheen! Easy to use, has a nice scent not too strong.
    Date published: 2016-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show sheen hair polish I have a Shire mare, so I'm dealing with a lot of hair! The show sheen works wonderfully for her. I use it for her mane, tail, feathers and on her coat to keep her clean. The product smells great and it's my 1st choice for any horse with long hair or just to keep your horse clean after a bath.
    Date published: 2016-01-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this about 2 weeks ago and since I constantly use this spray, the gallon bottle I bought is very helpful. I never have to worry about running out now~!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have walking horses with long thick wavy manes and would never get a brush through it if not for showsheen. Spray it down and the tangles just seem to fall out. Works great on their tails too. And then after an ititial detangle, if you just lightly spray every few days it keeps their mane beautiful and tangle free. It smells great too! I am so glad that i found this product years ago and i recommend it to everyone i know!
