100% Happiness Guarantee
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.

    Stretchies Shoulder Guard is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for Ranger The shoulder guard protected the skin condition my horse had on his white shoulders(he's a paint). It wasn't too hot and stayed on securely. He's better now and places are not covered but the guard kept flies and dirt out of the open sores til they scabbed up. it's more durable and comfortable than you would think. Since he didn't need it anywhere else it was Perfect as it Covered only the affected area. It was easy to put on and take off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! My almost 2 year old chincoteague filly (stands at just about 13.1) has the smartpak plaid blanket which was rubbing against her withers on the one side that wasn't protected by the mane. I bought this for a temporary solution (purchased a high neck blanket in the next size up for next winter). Within two weeks of use, the rubbed area which had previously lost all the hair is starting to regrow. I purchased a small and it fits my narrow youngster perfectly and I suspect that it will continue to fit her for a bit while she starts to fill out even more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helps with rubs My horse had a rub on its right front shoulder from its blankets and being so dry this winter. The rub has practically filled in after a month of him wearing the shoulder guard.
    Date published: 2017-02-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Should Guard I bought this guard because my OTTB was getting shoulder rubs from her blanket, this helps with the rubs, the hair is growing back. I didn't have a problem with the neck being too small as some other customers said, it fits her fine.
    Date published: 2017-01-24
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returned this item I read the reviews and saw the neck hole ran small so I ordered an extra large. My horse is 16 hands, not huge. I was disappointed to find the neck hole was way too tight for him even if I waited for it to stretch. I returned it and found one that was half the price and had an adjustable neck hole.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good blanket rub protection Bought to protect my ottb from blanket rubs on his shoulder from his baker stable blanket. The neck was a bit snug at first, but with gentle stretching and some use it loosened up enough. Like the piece that goes between the front legs to keep it in place and prevents it from rotating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for keeping haircoat in winter Have used these shoulder guards for many years, only way to keep away those rubbed shoulders that come with blanketing. They do wear thin and stretch out over time so will need to replace periodically.
    Date published: 2016-11-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the part that comes down the center and under to help hold it down. The neck was a bit snug on my overweight thoroughbred but seemed to stretch out enough.
    Date published: 2016-08-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased this product because my horse was getting rub marks from his blanket. It is a great product, wears easy, easy to get on and off. I picked it because of the buckle clasp.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea - Caveat: neck opening too small 16h Oldenburg; wears 78 blanket. I ordered large & extra large because he is built! Fit was ok, but the neck opening was too small to be comfortable. If it fit better, I'd have kept it
