Saddle Return Policy
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your new saddle please return the unused saddle for a refund or exchange within 15 days of purchase.
We want you and your horse to be happy, so try your new saddle on, but please inspect it carefully to make sure it is the saddle you ordered. Saddles require a break in period and have to be ridden several times and will not sit completely down on the horses back. Wear an older pair of jeans and a clean blanket, to ride the saddle one time to ensure it fits you and your horse. Full credit will only be given on a saddle if there is no wear, dirt or use. A restocking fee will be assessed on saddles not returned in new condition.
All items are subject to a 10% restocking fee, which will be deducted from your refund. We also do not refund the original shipping and handling that you paid on the order.
If your clothing item is in like new condition, you may exchange your clothing item for a different size or colour. You will not be subject to a restocking fee in this case, but you still will have to pay return shipping.
Shipping Returned Product
Returned packages must be sent prepaid. We will not accept COD packages.
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

De-Wormer, Feed, Feed Supplements, Milk Replacer Policy
We are committed to the health and wellbeing of all pets and livestock that we serve at The Horse Barn, because of this commitment to health, we do not accept any returns on these products once they have left our store for two reasons:
1. Horses, cattle, poultry, swine, rabbits and other livestock/pets are susceptible to diease and illness, returned de- wormers/feed/milk replacer/supplements could have come in contact with outside parasites and/or pathogens.
2. The de-wormer/feed/milk replacer/supplement being returned could have left in an environment unsuitable for feed/supplements/milk replacer, etc.(ie. An environment that may be too hot, too moist and/or exposed to the elements.) All de-wormers/feed/milk replacer/supplements are perishable; this can cause microscopic mould spores to sprout, ferment and/or other spoilage to occur, even in an unopened bag/container/tube.
If you are unsure of which de-wormer/feed/supplement/milk replacer is right for your livestock/pet, please ask our knowledgeable staff, we will help you to the best of our ability.
If you are still unsure about the correct de-wormer/feed/supplement/milk replacer for your livestock/pet, please wait to purchase the item and seek professional advice from someone such as a certified veterinarian.
The Horse Barn will not accept any returns/exchanges on dated items beyond their started date. (ie. Calendars, day planners, dated belt buckles and similar items cannot be returned beyond 60 day return policy or December 31st of the year before they started, whichever comes first.)

Stock Tank and Pond De-icer Policy
De-icers do not keep livestock waterers/ponds "warm" or "hot", de-icers are designed to keep ice from forming and keep water above sub-freezing temperatures.
All de-icers require regular maintenance, especially in "hard" water and/or well water, mineral and calcium buildup will cause your de-icer to short-circuit and stop working. Clean off mineral and/or calcuim deposits as often as necessary (steel wool and metal-bristle brushes work well). Visible calcium and mineral deposits on you de-icer will void the warranty.
In the event that your de-icer stops working follow ALL of the following steps:
1. Unplug your de-icer.
2. Put the de-icer in a *freezer for a minimum of 12 hours.
3. After the de-icer has been the freezer for a minimum of 12 hours, take it out of the freezer, try plugging in again.
*De-icers must be in a sub-freezing TEMPERATURE CONTROLED environment in order to reset the internal thermostat, simply unplugging the de-icer and leaving it outdoors overght DOES NOT reset the internal thermostat, temperatures fluctuate too much outdoors to reset the thermostat, freezers are regulated to stay a a constant temperature.
All of the above steps must be followed correctly before the de-icer is brought back for a warranty.
