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.

    Thorowgood T4 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conforms to horse and comfy for me I wanted a light-weight saddle that fit my OTTB and was comfortable for me and on the cheaper end since it isnt leather. This dressage saddle checks all the boxes. The suede on seat and knee roll gives extra stick and it is such a comfortable deep seat. It helps to put the rider into a correct dressage position. I'm happy with what I got for the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I've ridden in this saddle a few times now. It has a deep seat, that puts the rider effortlessly into a correct dressage position. It is lightweight which I was looking for and it fits my OTTB nicely! I'm happy with it and hoping for many years in this saddle!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, weatherproof saddle at a great price A lovely, well made saddle, especially at such an affordable price. The synthetic materials are terrific if riding outdoors; no worries about the weather. Super lightweight with terrific features. Unfortunately didn't fit our pony but this is a wonderful dressage saddle for those on a budget.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, lightweight, easy care saddle! So lightweight, correct and just lovely. Such a great bargain. For riders who work outdoors in all weather, or those who simply prefer to spend time riding rather than cleaning leather tack, the Thorowgood T4 dressage saddle is a wonderful choice! Super comfortable. Love the knee blocks; nicely supportive, not restrictive. (only gave 4 stars for durability because we haven't used it long and I don't know).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life so easy! Love my new saddle! Super lightweight and so comfy for both me and my horse!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking saddle with good features But.... This was an very nice looking saddle, but I could not make it work for my horses. Could not get the gullets that are in their photo ( two largest sizes ) due to SmartPak not carrying them. Go figure! The saddle also was narrower in the gullet in the middle of the saddle. Should be the same all the way down and only three fingers wide. So it bridged on my horses. Probably need the cob Thorowgood dressage saddle, but once again SmartPak does not carry it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not for horses with wide backs My Andalusian/paint cross mare has average withers but is very wide and round down the spine. I tried the medium tree, but the gullet pannels did not clear the supraspinous ligament, and bridged where she dips a bit after the withers. My friend has this same saddle on her warmblood mare with more of an A-framed back and loves this saddle. Too bad it didn't work for my horse--loved the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome customizable saddle for a great price I waffled back-and-forth between purchasing a WinTec and this saddle. After reading many reviews, and trying a couple of wintecs from my own barn, I decided to give this saddle a try. I am so glad that I did. It is a beautiful saddle and the quality is very obvious from the moment you get it out of the box. I would caution that the Gullet sizing on this brand is different and runs smaller than the WinTec. Because they have such a large range for so many sizes and shapes of horses ( high, low normal wither, and normal thin and wide all with sizing in each category) you really should download the sizing guide from their website and trust it! After riding this saddle for a few months I can tell you it is very comfortable for both me and my girl and keeps me in the correct position. Where can you get such a custom fit for this price? Totally recommend

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saddle! I am thrilled with this saddle and so is my mare! We recently started taking dressage lessons. As someone who'd never had formal lessons before and was used to riding in an endurance saddle with a very secure seat, the grippy texture of the T4 really appealed to me. The seat is very comfortable and, although it's different than what I'm used to, I feel quite secure. I love how lightweight the saddle is and how easy it is to clean after a ride - I just wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. The changeable gullet was a very valuable feature. My mare needed a wider one than the standard medium that came with it. It was easy to change out and both my trainer and I believe it fits her well. The contact is amazing - I can actually feel her back for the first time! The materials seem to be of very good quality and the wool flocking is a plus in case her saddle fitter needs to make any adjustments. I'm looking forward to using this saddle for many years to come!
    Date published: 2015-06-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic saddle for a fantastic price. I've had this saddle for 5 years and I LOVE it! I actually have the high wither version in this material, and hope Smartpak will eventually carry it. Fantastic for OTTB's transitioning from the track. Light, easy to clean, and adjustable. I am 5'10" and the 18" has a long enough flap for me. No matter what kind of "drama" happens underneath me, I've always kept my seat and position in this saddle. I also use it on a variety of horses. Quality product for a bargain price!
