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'!).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic sponge Nothing special about the sponges. Work well, do the job, come in a big pack of them so you don't have to buy many of the all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love'em Who doesn't love tack sponges. Easy to use and clean. We use them on tack, boots, bags, and even to wipe off a dirty horse face!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Where have the edges gone? I need to start by saying i don't ride. I'm a full time Texas potter an I use these sponges in the throwing and glazing process. Although they are very similar they are a much nicer sponge than the traditional "clay sponge". These sponges are more dense, less "floppy", they hold water nicely and they last longer. However, the sponges don't look exactly like the ones currently featured in the product photo. The "old" sponges had edges....they resembled the shape of a hockey puck. The new sponges have rounder edges and would be comparable to the outer shape of a doughnut. Good sponge overall and you can't beat SmartPak customer service. I hope this helps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love how cheap these are, and that they come in packs of twelve, being an avid tack cleaner (cleaning my tack at least every ride) these work great and rinse nicely

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sponges! These are great little sponges to clean with! You always need several on hand, one for the saddle soap, one for your oil, and of course one for your boot cleaner. Then you need extras for when you lose one, which happens often. :) These hold up well, and wash out after use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them! I keep them in a big plastic jar in my tach room and always have them on hand to clean up my tach after each ride. They wash up great, and last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Tack Sponges! These sponges are the best for cleaning tack, although they don't get in the small crevices (but what sponge does?). They are very absorbent and I clean mine after I am done with them and get a few uses of each. Would buy again and again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tack sponges- The Best!! These are the best sponges I have ever bought. I ordered these in June and I'm still using the first one! I rinse and reuse. The sponge has not crumbled so far after several uses. I have a lot of tack and clean often but I still believe I won't need to buy anymore for 1-2 years! Yay me; sorry SmartPak ! (haha)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will take me a lifetime to use these sponges! Great quality sponges. I didnt get what all the fuss was tack sponges could have 68 positive reviews. But now I get it :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Live Without! I use theses little sponges constantly and daily, mostly for cleaning tack. They rinse clean easily with some antibacterial soap and water, so I get a lot of use out of one before throwing it out for a new one. They are just simple little sponges but they are essential!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hold Up Well Great to have a package of these around. They last forever and are very absorbant. I find I use less saddle soap to get the same results with these sponges as opposed to a damp cloth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sponges Ever!!! I use to be extremely careful cleaning my tack because I knew that if I pressed to hard, the sponge would scratch my tack. They would start to fall apart after only 1 or 2 uses and I just thought that that was how all cheap sponges were. Well, I bought these to replace them and because of people singing their praise and I am so happy with this purchase. I have been using the same two (One for soap, one for conditioner) for over 7 months and not once have they scratched my tack or shown the slightest sign of falling apart. They're kind of stiff when dry of course, but once you get them wet they become extreemly soft and pliable. They are the best tack sponges I've ever had and once (If ever) these are done, I will not hesitate to buy more. They're so cheap and I Highly recomended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Very good value of the money. I've done quite a bit of cleaning and oiling since I purchased these, and had been impressed with them. They do tend to squish down when you've been using them for a few minutes, but once they've dried out they come right back up and are ready to go again. They've held up very well during use, and I think they will last quite a while. I prefer to use a car wax sponge for mink oil, but for liquids and cremes these work great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sponges! Love this pack of sponges! They're really good quality and they hold water and soap really good! They also rinse out nicely! I love how Smartpak makes them cheap and affordable, at local tack stores these sponges are about $13 for a 12 pack!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK at first- but stop being "spongey" In the time it takes to wash one pair of boots, these sponges lose their shape. They only re-absorb when put in the water once or twice, then they just stay flat when squished and don't absorb anything. Makes cleaning difficult and frustrating. I almost wonder if I got a bad batch or something, but that seems strange. I love Smartpak, but the ones I get at my local tack store work much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sponges! These sponges are perfect for cleaning everything from tack to your horse's eyes, nose, dock, or boo-boos. Great for scrubbing buckets or wiping off horse boots. Their small size is also very convenient. Love!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbeatable value! These little sponges are tough and they get every job done easily and efficiently. Best of all, you CANNOT beat Smartpak's prices and selection. This has converted me completely to a Smartpak shopper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality for a Low Price For the price its great. You can let them get junky and nasty and then throw them out when they fall apart. Hold just enough product. Love these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy and perfectly sized sponges My grand daughter loved using these tack sponges to clean her riding equipment. They are a perfect size to reduce waste of expensive leather cleaners and conditioners.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from barn staple/good value This bag of sponges are a great value to have onhand for tack cleaning. They are not so dear if one is lost or quickly destroyed. And the dozen can last a long time if just rinsed off and kept dry

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Keeping all of the lesson horse's tack clean takes a lot of work but these great little sponges do it perfectly. We go through a lot of sponges because of the amount of tack we clean and the frequency and these come at a perfect price and hold up against the wear and tear for a little while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ear plugs i got the hot tip to cut these in half and use them as ear plugs. We go through 10 of these a week in our riding school and this is a far more economical solution to even cotton.
