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 or place back in the original shipping box. 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. Footwear returned using the branded box are subject to a restocking fee.
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?
By law, all underwear and undergarments are excluded from our general return policy. Any underwear or undergarments returned to us will be discarded and NO refunds or exchanges will be issued, regardless of condition or packaging. No exceptions.
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.
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.
Trying out your new saddle in the Limited Trial Program:
- Please open the box carefully and retain all packaging and paperwork.
- 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 non-returnable.
- If the saddle does not fit you or your horse, notify us within seven days of receipt. Please call our toll free number (please do not e-mail us with this notification) and you will be emailed a pre-paid FedEx return label to be placed on the outside. The FedEx label is only eligible for shipment within the continental US. You would be responsible for any return shipping fees outside the continental US.
- Ship the saddle back to us in its original shipping packaging within five days of receiving return instructions.
- 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. Restocking fees will be charged and deducted from the purchase price if it is determined that saddle is in less than new condition upon return.
International Order. Can I return it?
Equestrian Collections gladly accepts returns on International Orders. However, you will be responsible for all duty, taxes and return shipping fees 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.
Horse Blankets. Can I return them?
We realize that horse blankets can be difficult to fit, so we allow you to try the blanket on your horse and return it if it does not fit. However, we ask that the blanket be kept CLEAN while you are trying it. Dirty, soiled blankets, or blankets that do not have original tags attached, can not be returned.
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.

- Item returned was a gift from another person's account
- 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 30 days old
