Saddle Trial Agreement (Local Trials Only)

Highline Tack offers 5-day trials on all saddles to ensure that our customers and their horses are happy with each saddle purchase.


  1. The customer is responsible for safe keeping of the saddle until the end of the trial period or until the saddle is received back at Highline Tack. If saddle is lost, stolen or broken, the full purchase price will be the responsibility of customer. If the saddle is damaged or blemished, depreciation cost of damage or blemish or repair cost will be charged (Minimum 10%).
  2. The 5 day trial begins the day the saddle is delivered. Before or upon completion of the 5-day trial, the customer must notify Highline Tack if the saddle is to be returned. On the sixth day, saddle becomes property of the customer and no returns for any reason will be accepted if we have not been notified. There are no exceptions made, unless made prior to or during the trial in writing (email or message) from Highline Tack.
  3. Any saddle returned with excessive wear on the flaps, scratches in the leather, nicks or significant marks to any part of the saddle will automatically be assessed a minimum of 10% of the saddles value. If the saddle is extremely damaged, so that it will significantly affect the subsequent sale of the saddle, the full purchase price will be charged and the saddle will become the property of the customer. Any saddle being returned that is not received by the seventh day after the customer’s initial receipt (unless otherwise agreed) will be charged a 5% late return fee. If the late return is the fault of the shipping company and tracking has been provided, the customer will not incur any late fee.
  4. All pre-owned saddles are sold as is. We do our best to describe saddles accurately including blemishes and measurements. The 5 day trial is to give our customers the opportunity  to thoroughly  inspect the saddle and fit for the horse and rider.  There are no returns accepted after the 5 day trial has come to an end (unless the trial has been extended in writing).
  5. Customer will not hold Highline Tack liable for any safety defects of the saddle. We work hard to ensure that we are sending you the highest quality saddles in good condition. However, we cannot  completely confirm the safety of every saddle. All saddles are sold in pre-owned condition and we offer 5-day trials so that our customers have the opportunity to check over the saddles either themselves or with a trainer or saddler, if they wish to do so. Highline Tack is not to be held liable for an injury caused by a defective or faulty saddle.
  6. 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.
