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.

    SmartPak German Martingale set is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs sized better We bought this at the farm I work at for horses who struggle with wanting to go too high/above the bit since we couldn't find the old German martingale. Overall, it's a decent martingale. The leather is easy to work with/break in, and I love the web reins, as they are soft and easy to maneuver. Measurements and sizing have something to be desired, however. The loop at the girth is borderline too small (just fits around the fleece girth I use on the setting I need it), the draw straps need to either be shorter, or there needs to be more D rings, and the neck strap could go a bit longer. The horse we purchased for initially (Corey) is a 17.2hh Oldenburg who believes he's part giraffe. A German martingale was the perfect aid as it simply puts pressure on when they raise their head too high, and releases the moment they soften (leaving less room for rider error as well!), and it has helped him more quickly and easily find his balance. It's definitely helped us get more accomplished during each ride, and has helped him to relax more quickly. As to size issues, I have to set it on the shortest D ring for it to come on when it should, while the neck and martingale strap just fits on almost the loosest setting. It's disappointing as he's a large horse and I was hoping to use this on some of our smaller horses as well, but it won't do much good as-is. My ONLY complaint: please make this in cob size, and also make this one fit better. The ratio seems to be off. It runs both too large and too small at the same time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Super nice, the only draw back is there is no clip for your girth attachment. It did not fit the width and I had to get my own clip device.
    Date published: 2018-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality & does the job for a great price I was looking for a german martingale to help as a little reminder for my green, high headed mare and took a chance on the SmartPak one because of its price point. I've owned it for a little over a month, the leather quality is great especially for the price, I personally love the web reins when dealing with a green horse and it does the job. Fits my 16.1/16.2 thoroughbred mare perfectly.
    Date published: 2017-10-25
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effective but... How has no one mentioned that the web reins will SHRED your hands to bits?! This would be to die for it they were leather with leather stops OR rubber. They are a nightmare and I resent the one horse who needs it right now for hurting my princess fingers. On the upside, I love SmartPak and it does do its job.
    Date published: 2017-10-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this martingale! Thank you smartpak! I looked EVERYWHERE for a German martingale for my 17.3hh warmblood gelding who loves to drag me to the jumps, and I couldn't find a thing that fit until this one. The leather is also very soft, and I prefer the woven web reins over the rubber ones I tried in another product. I couldn't be happier!
    Date published: 2016-12-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality leather Bought this for use on our warmbloods. Fits both the full size and oversized horse.
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets the job done The reins are nice, but martingale straps are too long to be effective on my 16.3 TB type horse. I had to tie knots in them for them to have any kind of contact. Additionally, the leather is rubbing off on the reins near the bit. That is just a cosmetic issue but it's worth mentioning.
    Date published: 2016-06-23
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nicely Made But Too Small The martingale was nicely made and the quality of the material was good; however, it was too small for a 16.3 hh TB. Would buy it again if they made a bigger size.
    Date published: 2016-06-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small for my horse I bought this approx. three weeks ago. The quality is fabulous, but it is a little small for my 16.2hh horse. The fit is close enough that I am still trying to find a workaround as it is otherwise exactly what I wanted.
    Date published: 2016-05-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smaller than previously I feel here like I now feel in grocery store - I am paying same price for 12 oz as I used to pay for 16 oz. I bought this same German Martingale a couple of years ago and was replacing it due to my horse stepping on and breaking leather strap (which I had had replaced by Amish for better quality hardware as this hardware is average at best) This one is about same quality - but smaller. Reins most especially smaller - about 16 inches total - 8 inches per rein. This is the second product in a month I ordered and had to send back because it is now smaller (other was a leather halter) - costing $18.00 in return fees. Extremely disappointed.
