Return Policy Wording
Do's and Dont's of packaging your returns.
The original manufacturer branded product packaging is considered part of the overal product, we will in some cases charge for repackaging or charge for a diminished value of such items if packaging when a product is returned, is damaged beyond use or defaced with writing, postage/address labels, stamps and packing tape for example. Please ensure items are packaged within an external packaging bag or box like what was used to send your items to you. Perhaps you could reuse the bag or box we used.
Riding Hats - We send Riding Hats and Skull Caps in the original manufacturer branded box, bag and packaging, this is then placed inside an additional card board box with extra protective packaging for transport purposes, this is very important. We will not accept back Riding Hats or Skull caps that are sent back either without the original manufacturers bags, packaging and boxes, or returned to us only using the manufacturers box or bag. The manufacturers packaging, bags and hat boxes alone does not protect the Hat or Skull Cap enough during transport. Riding Hats and Skulls must be sent back with at least the same protection that was used when we dispatched the item to you. Please ensure all items are sent using the protective boxes or bags like used during our initial delivery to yourself to ensure the overall product/s including manufacturers packaging will not be damaged.
Please ensure that you protect any products from becoming worn or soiled whilst trying them for size and fit.. Please also ensure items are free from any smells or fragrances as well as human or pet hair. If trying on any Horse Wear products, for example rugs and saddle pads, please ensure you use a clean sheet between item and Horse to prevent marks and/or Horse hair on the items. On cancellation or return for whatever reason, you must follow our returns procedures set out on this page and return to us the Products we have delivered to you in accordance with these procedures.
