Within 60 days after purchase:

You may also return most merchandise for exchange or store credit in the amount of the actual purchase price for up to 60 days. This applies regardless of whether it has tags, packaging, or if it has been slightly used, as long as it is clean, and we have proof of purchase*. Sometimes you just don’t know an item won’t work until you try it, and we don’t want you to be stuck with those purchases simply because we can no longer sell them as new.

 (See Specific Merchandise Exceptions below)


“Proof of Purchase”

The easiest proof of purchase is your original sales receipt. 

If you no longer have your receipt, we may be able to provide Proof of Purchase from our system. It is possible that we may ask for a driver’s license or other identification in this process. If we are not able to verify the purchaser, date of purchase and purchase price for an item, we are not able to accept return of that item.

The following are not returnable under any circumstances:

Saddles. Consumables/Chemicals (Fly Sprays, Supplements, etc.) unless their packaging includes an unbroken seal. Gift Certificates. All Red “X” Clearance merchandise. Custom Orders (items made to your measurements, custom color choices, etc.). Engraving and embroidery. Special Orders (items in styles/sizes/colors that we do not stock that were ordered specifically for you).

Suspected Defective Merchandise

Within 30 days after purchase:

If you suspect an item you’ve purchased is defective during the first 30 days after you’ve purchased it, we can offer you an immediate exchange or store credit. If you would prefer a refund, we may need to return the item to the manufacturer for inspection first.

Beyond the first 30 days after purchase:

If you notice a potential defect later on, we’re more than happy to work with you to resolve it. Bring the item in to us as soon as possible. We’ll get it back to the manufacturer for inspection. Depending on the outcome of their inspection and the manufacturer’s policies, we will be ale to tell you your options for repair, replacement, etc. Store Credit is tracked by our system, and does not expire.
