TRIAL SADDLES

  • FrenchUsedSaddles.com offers customers a seven (7) day return policy/ trial period, which begins the day you receive your saddle. Shipping to you is FREE one-way, and for your convenience we will provide you with a return shipping labelFull payment (purchase) of the saddle is required for all trials.
  • We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards.
  • From the time the saddle is purchased from our site, you own the saddle, unless it is returned to us, postmarked by the 7th day (Return Ship Date).
  • In the event that you are trying more than one saddle, the trial periods run concurrently.

If for any reason, you are not satisfied with the saddle or you feel it does not properly fit you or your horse, you may return it on or before your Return Ship Date. For example, if you receive your saddle on a Monday, your Return Ship Date is the following Monday.

If your saddle is shipped back to FrenchUsedSaddles.com after the Return Ship Date, a store credit will be issued for the purchase of another used saddle, an Antarès standard saddle or an Antarès custom saddle.
No refunds will be issued if your saddle is shipped after the Return Ship Date. Store credit can be redeemed once your trial saddle has been safely returned to FrenchUsedSaddles.com in acceptable condition.

In the case of a return, a full refund less the $50.00 re-stocking fee and less the return shipping charges will be credited to your credit card account. Complimentary items shipped with your saddle such as a saddle cover must be shipped back with the saddle or the full retail price will be deducted from your refund. Please allow 1-2 business days for the credit to be processed; the credit may take a few additional days to appear on your statement.
