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'!).

Tired of sunglasses that bounce when you ride or are just plain uncomfortable? Well, we found you the perfect pair of sunglasses to wear when riding - plus, they won't break the bank! The Close Contact Sunglasses from SSG fit comfortably underneath your helmet with the wrap around design.

Polycarbonate lens, UV 100% protection to NM400.

    SSG Close Contact Sunglasses is rated 3.6341 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wear all the time! I hesitated to buy these because of some negative reviews, but decided to give them a try- probably 3 years ago. They may look a little cheap and disappointing at first, and they may not fit some people, but I have an average (and very much female) face and they fit me great. They don't slide around while I am riding which is awesome! They do tend to fog up when I'm hot and driving, or standing around, but not when riding. As others have said they fit well under my helmet. I have found these to be so comfortable, I wear them all the time and have done so almost from the beginning. They are incredibly durable as I am very hard on sunglasses and these have lasted a long time with very little scratching. I love these sunglasses.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected more but functional I expected a little more from the description and the brand name, these are basically the same safety glasses you can get at your local Norco or Oxarc for less. They are good as long as you have a hat/helmet with a visor otherwise the clarity slips a bit. That being said I won't feel to bad if something happens to them on the trail or in my helmet bag. They are functional and do the job of protecting my eyes from bugs, branches and dust.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for riding in I bought these sunglasses to mainly protect my eyes from branches and bugs while galloping through the woods. They are dark enough to protect from the sun, but not too dark so when in a shaded forest, I can still see well. They fit comfortably under my helmet, flexible enough to not cause pressure, an issue I've had with most sunglasses. Only minor annoyance, which may be uncommon, is that my lashes hit the lens when pushed back to the top of the bridge of my nose. Thinking of glueing something to the bridge of the glasses to help with this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from felt cheap returned these as they felt and looked cheap. Did not seem to sit properly on face.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just OK Since they are very snug against my face they do cause fogging and when I start to sweat, the sweat drips down the lens. I do like the wrap around style and will probably continue to wear them for this summer to get monies worth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sunglasses I have to wear sunglasses all the time. These are very comfortable, and are a great fit with my helmet or baseball cap. The wrap around lenses give great eye protection. I haven't had them long enough to rate their durability.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
