  • Footwear. Can I return it?

    Yes!  Footwear is fully returnable.  All we ask that you do not wear it outside, or damage it in any fashion.  

    If you need to return your footwear for any reason, please re-box your boots carefully and then wrap the box in brown paper. Please do not stick shipping labels directly on to the box as we want to be able to send out the boots to another customer looking as fresh and nice as when you received them.

    Because we want you to be absolutely satisfied with the footwear, here are some suggestions about trying them on,  and some thoughts on fit:
     
    • Please take the time to try them on and walk in them on a carpet inside the house.
    •  
    •  If your feet are prone to swell by the end of the day, then this would be a good time to try them on.

    • All tall riding boots will slip at the heel until you have worn them for a while.  This is to be expected and is not fault in the fit.  Given a little time, your heel will mold the back of the boot to fit and the slipping will stop.
    • Trying tall boots on with a nylon boot sock or panty hose will help them slide on easier.
    •  
    • Please do not put baby powder or boot stretch on your boots until you have decided to keep them, as this will make them non-returnable.
    •  

    • Tall boots should be snug and look "too tall". This is because they will drop at the ankle over a period of time.  So start 1-1.5 inches taller than you think you want them.   Dress boots with a stiffened back used for dressage will not drop.

    •  
    • Once you have worn footwear outside, they are not returnable.  
     


  • Underwear. Can I return it?


    No.  Because of health concerns, all sales of intimate apparel are final.  Please be sure to order the correct size and color of any intimate apparel items you purchase. 

    Our Customer Service Representatives are available to help your with your selections during regular business hours.  


  • Custom items. Can I return them?

    We hope that you LOVE your custom product and are thrilled with the choices that you made while creating it.  Custom items have been especially made to your specifications and therefore are uniquely YOURS and cannot be returned.
     
    Custom items can only be returned if they have a manufacturer's defect.


  • Semi-Custom items. Can I return them?

    Semi-Custom items are ones that have been customized for you from a base product.   You will have made choices of size, color or fit that made this product the way you wanted it to be.  We hope that you love the choices that you made and are happy with this distinct semi-custom item.
     
    Because you helped create it, it is uniquely yours and is not returnable, other than in the unlikely case of a defect in their manufacturing.


  • Saddles. Can I try out and return them?

    In a word, yes, you can try out and return saddles to Equestrian Collections.  All that we ask is that you carefully follow our specific instructions regarding saddle care and return.

    We want your new saddle to work well for both you and your horse, so we have developed our limited Trial Purchase plan.  This allows you to check saddle fit on a saddle you have purchased.  However, be aware that you will not be able to ride extensively in the saddle.
     
    If you have any questions regarding a return, call our customer service representatives toll free at (877) 872-4415.

     

    Limited Trial Purchase

     
    With our Limited Trial Purchase, you will be able to girth the saddle up and sit in it to check to see that it fits and is comfortable for both you and your horse.  You will not, however, be able to ride around in it.  You will need to care for the saddle extremely carefully, and follow our specific use instructions.  If you do not, you will not be able to return the saddle and get a refund. 
     
    Please read our instructions carefully before proceeding with the trial.   The instructions will include how to send the saddle back to us, including getting an RMA number and how to package the saddle.
     
     

    Trying out your new saddle in the Limited Trial Program:



    -Please open the box carefully and retain all packaging and paperwork. Check the Saddle Condition Report that is attached to the saddle. It will indicate if the saddle is completely unused, or if, for instance it has been tried out in any way.
     
    -When trying out a saddle from Equestrian Collections, place a clean saddle pad under the saddle and girth it up, wrap the leathers in vet wraps, tube socks or halter fuzzies.
     
    -You can certainly move the horse forward in it to see how it works for you and your horse, however we stress that a full refund can only be given if the saddle is absolutely clean and shows no sign of wear. 
     
    -Just wipe it over with a cloth dampened with plain water to remove any barn dust or grime.
     
    -Please do not oil or use conditioner on this saddle if you are going to return it, as this will render it nonreturnable. 
     
    -If the saddle does not fit you or your horse, notify us within seven days of reciept.  Please call our toll free number (please do not e-mail us with this notification) and you will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA) to be placed on the outside and inside of the box.
     
    Ship the saddle back to us in its original shipping packaging  within five days of receiving your RMA #. 

    We stress that a full refund can only be given if the saddle is absolutely clean, returned in its original packaging and shows no sign of wear.  
     

    Charges and Fees:

    The full purchase price of the Limited Trial Purchase Saddle, plus shipping and handling charges will be put on your Credit Card when we ship the saddle to you.   The purchase price will be refunded if the saddle is returned to us in new condition, with no signs of wear. You are responsible for any shipping and handling charges.  There is an additional $10.00 shipping fee for saddles.


  • International Order. Can I return it?


    Equestrian Collections gladly accepts returns on International Orders.  However, you will be responsible for all duty and taxes associated with the return shipment.

    When making an international return, you MUST request a return authorization prior to shipping your item(s) to Equestrian Collections.  You may obtain a return authorization by either calling or e-mailing customer service with your name, order number, and the items you would like to return. 

    Please note:  If you return an international order item without obtaining prior authorization from Equestrian Collections, Equestrian Collections will refuse the shipment and it will be returned to you at your expense.

    Equestrian Collections Outlet items are one of kind, closeout items that are sold at very deep discounts.  They are sold "as is" and can be returned for STORE CREDIT ONLY.        


  • Horse Blankets. Can I return them?

    Also, if the blanket does not fit, DO NOT leave it on your horse.  A poorly fitting blanket will tear, and will be ineligible for return. This is not considered normal use and conditions.

    Please remember that horse clothing is manufactured for specific uses.  Many types of sheets, skrims, and fly sheets are not constructed to withstand the rigors of turnout.

  • Why did I get a Store Credit?

    There are several reasons that you may have been given a store credit when returning an item to Equestrian Collections.  The most common reasons for Store Credit are:
     
    • Item returned was a gift from another person's account
    • Item returned  was originally purchased from the Equestrian Collections Outlet
    • Item returned was purchased with a credit card that has since expired (and so cannot be credited)
    • Item returned was a special or custom order
    • Item returned is more than 365 days old

    If you would like to redeem your store credit, place you order on line, and select "store credit" when filling in your credit information. Due to system limitations, store credit may not be applied on line to shipping charges.  As a matter of policy, if you have enough store credit to cover your shipping, it will be applied by customer service before you order is processed.
