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.

    Thorowgood T8 Dressage Saddle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings The saddle's panels are much softer than a wintec and I loved the different billeting options. Didn't quite fit my horse and multiple people could not get the gullet plate out to try a different one, so I did not keep it. I ordered a test ride version and it arrived in like new condition
    Date published: 2018-02-20
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gullet not easy... Overall, I returned as it did not fit my horse. The panels were much softer than on a wintec I had previously owned. I liked being able to move the billets. As the saddle did not fit I attempted to change the gullet. Even with assistance, I was unable to get the saddle apart in order to install a different plate.
    Date published: 2018-02-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saddle I tried this out as a test saddle. I had to go to the wide/extra wide gullet to fit my horse. It was too deep a seat for me but fit my horse wonderfully. The gullet is not easy to change but is doable. I had to get my husband to help me. Nice workmanship on saddle.
    Date published: 2017-02-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has been a great saddle for a hard to fit OTTB! Our fitter recommended this saddle to us and we are so glad she did. It was in our budget and was able to be adjust for an OTTB with uneven shoulders and very high withers! We have had it for a year now and it still looks new...ridden in 4-5 times a week.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thorowgood dressage saddle excellent fit for my horse and me. However, tchanging out the gullet is VERY difficult!
    Date published: 2016-12-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice saddle for price point This is a very nice saddle and looks WAY better in person then in photos. The leather portion is supper soft and buttery. The synthetic area is no where near as stiff as other synthetic brands. And I love that the gullet sizes go larger then wintec. I was VERY disappointed that it did not fit my horse and i ended up having to send it back. However i would most definitely recommend this saddle to anyone who is on a budget or needs a saddle with changeable gullet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and great fit for both of us. I rode the test ride saddle and it fit her perfectly. She is a Tennessee Walking Horse that has virtually no withers anymore and is quite broad. We put in the wide gullet and it was perfect! The leather seat makes it feel and look like a much more expensive saddle. Can't wait for mine to get here -- it is on back order. I would highly recommend this for a less expensive option.
    Date published: 2016-05-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! Very comfortable, good fit for both my horse and I. Lots of compliments from people about how nice the saddle is! Looks and rides like a more high end saddle!
    Date published: 2016-02-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value This is a really nice saddle for the price. I live in the middle of nowhere, and could not get a saddle fitter out to fit my ISH mare. I ordered this saddle with a few of the different gullets, and had a saddle to ride in within days. I actually ordered it as a demo, but the saddle looked completely untouched when I got it. I had to order an additional gullet to get a good fit, but my mare is much happier now for our flat work. The saddle is fairly comfortable but will require some breaking in before I decide if it really works for us. Great quality, I am very happy with the purchase.
    Date published: 2016-01-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! My old saddle was stolen several years ago. This saddle is well worth the wait! I love it! The leather on the seat and knee rolls is made from soft quality leather which is really nice. Overall it is a beautiful saddle that puts me in the correct position. My instructor is also impressed with this saddle. Great buy and great price. Thanks Smartpak!
