    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.

    The Ultimate Hoofpick is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 118.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have purchased much sooner! I have been thinking about purchasing this hoofpick for years. In my mind, my cheap ones did the job just fine and it was silly to "spluge" on a different hoofpick. After the first round of iceballs in the horses' feet this year, I finally caved. Makes nightly hoofpicking for all the boarders much faster with a hoofpick that doesn't easily bend. I prefer the junior size, but either will get the job done!
    Date published: 2018-01-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this hoof pick! This pick is the best. I was struggling to pick out hooves as they would get so tightly packed but this pick makes the job quick and easy.
    Date published: 2017-12-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very ergonomic! This is the best hoof pic that I have ever used! Very easy to use and no brush that digs into your hand!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Nice handle and you get nice leverage to pick out hooves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product One of the best hoof pick's I have ever used. Well made and fit your hand.
    Date published: 2017-03-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best The Ultimate Hoofpick is GREAT! This hoofpick is a God send if you have small or arthritic hands. It is easy to hold and makes prying mud and stones out a breeze. Yes, it costs more but it is worth every penny.
    Date published: 2017-02-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is the ultimate hoofpick! I was skeptical at first but after reading the reviews I decided to give this a try - what an amazing product! I never knew that a hoofpick wasn't just a hoofpick. This works great on our hard-packed Arizona soil and makes cleaning feet quick and easy. If you're on the fence, give it a try - you won't regret it
    Date published: 2017-02-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't last forever.. :( This is a good hoof pick, and sharp. Excellent at cleaning out everything from hooves. HOWEVER, the ONE time I let someone borrow it it broke (she was just picking hooves out like a regular person). Just like that, bye bye expensive hoof pick. I've been around a long time and I've never broken a hoof pick in my life, so beware: It's a great hoof pick, until it breaks one day.
    Date published: 2016-12-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Hoof Pick EVER! This is the BEST hoof pick I've ever used. My horse needs his hooves cleaned out really well, every day. It's easy to hold and is able to clean out all the packed in crud, that here in Arizona, seems to become similar to concrete in the arid heat. It's also solidly made and I foresee it lasting a very, very long time.
    Date published: 2016-08-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for picking hooves with sliders and when hooves are packed with clay are very dense material because it doesn't slide in you hand and is sturdy so it doesn't bend.
    Date published: 2016-07-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!! I just bought this and am so happy I did because it is wonderful. I read all the reviews and ordered the smaller size, which fits my small hands perfectly. The handle is easy to grip and the pick itself is strong, sturdy, and fits into all the narrow crevices in my horse's hooves. Yes, it is rather expensive for a hoof pick, but it is well worth the extra cost.
    Date published: 2016-07-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate! It doesn't matter the weather or environmental conditions...this hoof pick works quickly and effectively with minimal effort. It is a large, heavy hoof pick.
    Date published: 2016-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoofpick EVER! I've been using the same one of these for about four years, and it's still going strong! The only reason I'm buying another is that I'm traveling to more clients' barns these days and want to keep one at home and one in my truck. I have relatively large hands, but I would still recommend the "Junior" version - it's the same size as one of the generic brushy ones, but with a grip that really fits the hand. The "Ultimate" is actually weirdly large, and, having used one for the first time at another barn the other day, it's pretty hard to hang on to. I never actually use the brush on the other ones, so I don't miss not having one! This is a tool you'll use literally every time you ride - don't cheap out!
    Date published: 2016-05-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hoof pick I have used. The metal portion does not bend like other generic hoofpicks.
    Date published: 2016-05-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This is the best pick I have used. Definitely worth using. No bending and always gets under the mud an sand.
    Date published: 2016-04-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoof pick ever!!! Perfect Shape! Fits my hand and gives me the leverage I need to get out even packed hard mud and dirt. Certainly makes my life easier!
    Date published: 2016-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hoof Pick You will have to pry this out of my cold dead hands before I ever buy another hoof pick. Works great on packed in mud. The junior size is the same size as a normal hoof pick
    Date published: 2016-04-05
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really impressed Okay so this is the first hoofpick I have bought. There are plenty laying around at our barn and free for anyone to use. I bought this product based off reviews and bloggers... Over all I wasn't super impressed. I like the hoofpicks with brushes, its more convenient. This one is very sturdy unlike a cheap counterpart and the jr size fit my small hands very well. However, you can get the job done with a cheaper pick. I do have to say though if you aren't prone to loose it, its not a bad investment as it feels sturdy and like it can stand the test of time. However, time will tell, Ive only had mine a month or so.
    Date published: 2016-03-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hoof pick this thing is sturdy! I will probably never have to buy another hoof pick in my life! really gets all the crud out of the hoof and the Jr size fits perfectly in my hands. The regular size would probably be too big for most ladies.
    Date published: 2016-03-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best hoof pick ever! this is the perfect shape. it spares your wrists, gives good leverage and really gets into those tight places without any discomfort for the horse or yourself. so glad I bought this!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Hoof pick!! I've been using mine for over a year now and I just gave one to my Granddaughter for her horse.
    Date published: 2015-12-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very glad I purchased this hoofpick I have carpal tunnel and other arm issues and I find this hoofpick is very comfortable to hold and is great picking the hooves without a lot of strength on my part. I have three little barefoot miniature horses and I love this hoofpick.
    Date published: 2015-12-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing My life before the Ultimate Hoofpick: "Why would anyone spend that much money on a hoofpick?" My Life after the Ultimate Hoofpick: "Oh, never mind, I totally get it now." You have to try it to fully understand its magic. I am a groom and it wasnt until some clients bought the Ultimate Hoofpick (which I then used when grooming their horses) that I realized I needed one for my personal grooming kit too. So great for tough arena sand, snow-packed tootsies, and general mud mayhem.
    Date published: 2015-08-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product This is the second Ultimate hoofpick I own. I bought two so my granddaughter would have one of her own. I would not use any other kind AWESOME
    Date published: 2015-07-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love this hoof pick! It is super comfortable and incredibly sturdy. It might seem like an excessive amount to spend on a hoof pick, but you will love picking out your horses feet with this hoof pick.
    Date published: 2015-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves my hands! I have arthritis and a bad wrist, so the leverage and sharp tip make this my favorite new tool. The only thing I would like is a bristle brush on the end like the ones on standard picks.
    Date published: 2015-07-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdiest Hoofpick I've had this hoofpick for over a year and it's held up great. Definitely worth investing the extra couple bucks rather then constantly needing to replace poorer quality ones. Works great on the ice balls the form in their hooves during the winter. The "Junior" size is best for an adult woman with average sized hands, the "Ultimate" size is too big.
    Date published: 2015-06-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super strong and will last! I originally bought this because my barefoot trimmer recommended it - she said it has lasted the longest of any hoofpick and that it has a nice strong tip that won't bend. I decided to buy it and I completely agree. The bevel on the end is nice if you need to even take off some sloughing pieces of sole. Doing this with my old $2 hoofpick usually ended up bending it.
    Date published: 2015-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hoof pick This brand is the ultimate hoof pick. I have both sizes and prefer the larger one. I didn't think that hoof picks could be that different until I used one of these. They really do make it easier. So well made and sturdy.
    Date published: 2015-02-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and easy to use Good sturdy product! Easy to use, beats all other picks I've ever used!
