ALL SADDLE ORDERS COME WITH A 5-DAY TRIAL PERIOD.
Simply order the saddle you are interested in trying through our website. Once the order has been placed, it will be shipped within 24 hours (usually same day if ordered before 12pm). We ship domestically in the US and world-wide.
If you decide to send the saddle back, please follow the directions on the Return Card provided with your saddle shipment.
Once we get the saddle back and confirm that it is in the same condition in which it left, we will refund your full payment (minus shipping costs and restocking fee) within 24 hours.
There is a $75 restocking fee for all saddles returned from 5-day trials. However, you will never pay a restocking fee if you end up with a saddle from us within 30 days, no matter how many you try. If a saddle is returned, the restocking fee will be taken out of the refund, but it will be used as a credit towards the next saddle purchase within a 30 day time period. If multiple saddles are tried, the restocking fee credit time period begins at the end of the original trial.
The full trial agreement is available here (you will be asked to electronically sign this agreement at checkout): Trial Agreement
**Saddle trials are offered to our US customers only. All international orders are final sale only.
