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.

Ingredients

(Maintenance Dose = )
Ingredient Per Serving Per Pound

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
How to Use Your ThinLine:

ThinLine recommends that any basic ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads be used between your saddle and a regular saddle pad. While you can use ThinLine pads
 
directly on the horses back the lifespan of the pad may be shortened. When used over another pad the average lifespan is 7-9 years. Pads used directly against the horse are not warrantied. Some ThinLine or Ultra ThinLine pads may come with a crease where the pad has been folded to be bagged and shipped. These creases will disappear when warmed to body temperature. (1-2 rides)
 
Combo or full pads, like the Cotton Comfort, Sheepksin, or Felt pad lines, may be used alone.

Care Instructions for Sheepskin Pads:

ThinLine sheepskin products are made with 100% medical grade merino wool on a real (non-synthetic) hide. Please follow care instructions carefully to ensure you product stays under warranty and to ensure product durablity.
 
For Regular Maintenance – The most important thing to know about sheepskin is that it hates to stay wet. If you ride the sheepskin against the horse or get it thoroughly soaked make it is dried quickly. Place the pad sheepskin up in a cool environment. In humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Sheepskin must be allowed to dry fully between rides. Once the pad is dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibers and help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride. Ride, flip sheepskin side up in your tack room, brush occasionally. A simple daily/post-ride brushing is all your pad needs if not too sweaty from the ride.
 
Washing Sheepskin—Pads should only be washed when absolutely necessary, which should only be about 2-3 times in it’s lifespan if the above maintenance care is followed. Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water using one of the following 3 approved products: Eucalan, Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, or Ivory Snow Flakes.  These products have been tested on sheepskin and are covered under warranty.  You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the pad, single wash cycle only. Remove excess water in the pad by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle.
 
Drying Sheepskin— Sheepskin saddle pads should be laid flat, sheepskin up, out of the sun preferably under a fan. No dryers or other heating devices. The ThinLine shim may slow drying time so placing absorbent products such as heavy duty paper towels or shami’s such as sham wow inside the pocket will absorb water, speed the drying time and keep your sheepskin in better shape. Don’t over stuff pockets or the sheepskin may stretch. Do not brush or pull sheepskin when wet.
 
To keep the rolls clean and extend washing cycles, especially on white pads, you can lightly spray Scotch Guard the rolls.

    Ultra ThinLine Sheepskin Comfort Half Pad is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half pad! I have the quilted cotton back thinline and decided to upgrade with the sheepskin. Pricey but worth it! My horse seems much more willing to move out and my comfort has increased in the saddle too. Pad looks well made, I love that it has the options for shims and love that the wool isn't too thick.
    Date published: 2018-03-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Offers great back protection I got this for my mare to try and help with back soreness. So far I think it's made a difference. She seems more comfortable overall. I haven't had it long so I can't speak to its durability but it seems well made.
    Date published: 2018-01-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Single Ride. I use this pad on a dozen different horses. It seems to work well with a saddle that has good fit, and improve the fit of most saddles that are just a bit off. I believe the shock absorption is top notch. The surface of the pad helps it be a "no slip" type, staying exactly where I put it. Ill always have one of these in my rotation, and if I'm really lucky, I'll have two!
    Date published: 2017-09-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good pad I have other Thinline products and purchased this for a new horse. He likes it and it seems to be holding up okay.
    Date published: 2017-09-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this and my horse does too I've been riding with this for about a month now. My saddle feels nice and secure and I love the fact that its comfy on my horses back. I got it in black. The only thing I would do to improve it is put some sort of tag or marker where the center is. My horse is really tall and it's hard for me to tell if I've got it centered under the pommel.
    Date published: 2017-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality! This is one of the nicest half pads I have ever used. When you look at the materials and craftsmanship that have gone in to it, the price is more then fair. It is not too bulky and looks super fancy with the sheepskin. Use it it daily and is holding up very well!
    Date published: 2017-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from back Saver We use these on all of our therapeutic horses for their riding lessons. I truly believe that they are a huge help with keeping our horses backs from getting sore. therapeutic horses have to carry mainly unbalanced riders and we have had far less back issues since we started using the Ultra Thinline sheepskin Comfort Half Pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money My sensitive mare loves this pad. Her trot is more forward and her shoulders are freer.
    Date published: 2016-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pad! I bought this a month or so ago and have used it on 2 different horses with great results. My OTTB was more pleasant under saddle and my QH/TB cross showed jumpers in it with great results. I placed the shims for the QH/TB mare as she is older with high withers. Would definitely purchase again!
