Customer Service

 

Customer Service is our number one priority!

Unlike some of those big mega on-line stores, we are a small retail store that really cares about our customers (we like to call friends!) When you call, you will immediately be talking to a real person, not some computer! All of our staff are horse people and understands you and your horse’s needs. Whether you're looking to outfit your horse, yourself, or your barn come take a look at our inventory and meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff.   We look forward to serving you.

We have in stock English and western apparel, saddles, tack and gifts, as well as home décor, blankets, footwear, general horse supplies, and lots more. If you do not see it on our website give us a call on our toll free line. We are always happy to answer questions.
Local: 360-424-3500 or Toll Free 1-888-317-7513

Defective Merchandise
If a product breaks or becomes damaged during normal use and within a reasonable length of time (usually less than one year) because of a manufacturing defect, The Bony Pony will replace or refund the purchase price deeming the manufacturers decision. **Please note this may take 20-30 working days because we have to send the item back to the manufacturer for inspection and replacement/credit.** For your protection, we recommend that you ship your return back to us via UPS or US Postal Service with insured service.

Special Orders
We have over 43,000 items in our retail store and cannot possibly include them all in our On-Line store.  If there is something you need that you don't find in our On-Line store, please call us at 1-888-317-7513 or 360-424-3500.  Chances are we may have it right in our store and can include it in your order or we will be happy to special order it for you if we don't.  However, special orders of item we do not carry in our retail or on-line store will not be returnable.
Pricing
We try very hard to get the information that we include with each item right.   However, we are human and mistakes will be made. We are not responsible for any typographical errors, including pricing, and cannot honor such errors. Rest assured that we will do everything we can to minimize such errors.  
Limited Saddle Trial Purchase
With our Limited Saddle Trial Program, you will be able to girth the saddle up and sit in it to check to see that it fits and is comfortable for both you and your horse.  Take a short ride if necessary, however,  make sure you do not mark the saddle in any way.  You will need to take extreme care for the saddle and follow our specific use instructions.  If you do not, you will not be able to return the saddle and get a refund.  Please read our instructions carefully before proceeding with the trial.   The instructions will include how to send the saddle back to us, including getting an RMA number and how to package the saddle.
Trying out your new saddle in the Limited Trial Program
Please open the box carefully and retain all packaging and paperwork. Check the Saddle Condition Report that is attached to the saddle. It will indicate if the saddle is completely unused, or if, for instance it has been tried out in any way.
When trying out a saddle from The Bony Pony, place a clean saddle pad under the saddle and girth it up.  For English saddles: wrap the leathers in vet wraps, tube socks or halter fuzzies. For Western saddles:  wrap the stirrups foot pad in vet wrap or other protective material being careful that it does not leave marks or residue on the stirrup.
You can certainly move the horse forward in it to see how it works for you and your horse; however we stress that a full refund can only be given if the saddle is absolutely clean and shows no sign of wear.  Please do not oil or use conditioner on this saddle if you are going to return it, as this will render it nonreturnable.  Just wipe it over with a cloth dampened with plain water to remove any barn dust or grime.

If the saddle does not fit you or your horse, notify us within seven days of receipt.  Please call our toll free number (please do not e-mail us with this notification) and you will be given a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA) to be placed on the outside and inside of the box.

Ship the saddle back to us in its original shipping packaging within five days of receiving your RMA #. 

We stress that a full refund can only be given if the saddle is absolutely clean, returned in its original packaging and shows no sign of wear.  
 
Please call with any fitting questions as we can answer many of your questions right over the phone.  Just remember, you are the final judge of whether the saddle fits your horse or not.  If you decide to keep the saddle after the trial period and later change your mind, the saddle will not be returnable.
If you decide to return the saddle, upon receipts and inspection by The Bony Pony, full credit will be issued less shipping.  The customer is responsible for shipping the trial saddle both ways.
