If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact Solution Saddles as soon as possible.

The buyer shall be deemed to have accepted the goods if they have not been returned on or before the 14th day after delivery. The buyer shall not be entitled to return the goods in whole or in part after such date. Except under warranty terms, no returns may be made without previous written consent of the seller and such goods must be returned in their original, unused condition and suitably packaged at the buyer's risk and expense.

Saddle Post Purchase Policy

It is expected, where possible, that you will have regular saddle fitting reviews from your SMART Advisor. Please contact your Approved Advisor or Solution Saddles in the first instance, at any time you have questions or concerns regarding the SMART saddle or equipment used to fit and they will be happy to talk through your specific circumstances. If your concerns remain following the initial discussion, it is essential (where location allows) you arrange a review visit as soon as possible with your Approved Advisor to accurately assess the saddle fit in order to:

  • Identify any issues with regards to the fit and/or suitability of the saddle.
  • Ensure the ancillary equipment used is suitable and not impacting the performance or fit negatively.
  • Make any necessary adjustments to the saddle fit that are required to achieve optimal performance.
  • Observe the horses’ performance in the saddle.

You may find it useful to record photographs of how the saddle is fitted and share these with your Advisor as they may be able to offer advice by phone or email in the interim. SMART Advisors are trained in the principles of how the SMART saddles fit and function, which differs from a treed saddle, so it may be impossible for an alternative professional or practitioner to assess and give accurate advice. Your Approved Advisor will be happy to work in conjunction with your Vet/Physiotherapist or other practitioner through periods of significant changes or rehabilitation and it is essential to involve all parties in any changes to saddle fit to avoid potential fitting issues arising.

Sale Saddle Returns

Except under warranty terms, no returns may be made after the cancellation period without previous written consent from Solution Saddles.

Such goods must be returned at the buyer’s risk and expense.  Solution Saddles reserves the right to charge a 25% return and restocking fee. The saddle remains the property of Total Saddle Solutions Ltd. (TSS) until paid for in full. TSS reserves the right to recall the saddle at any time.
