All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm our acceptance and complete our Contract with you by confirming your order at the end of the call or by sending you an email that confirms the goods will be dispatched to you (the “Order Confirmation”) or by dispatching the goods you have ordered to you, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you cancel your order in accordance with the instructions in condition 4 below.

2. Pricing, processing your orders and payment

If we discover such an error after you have submitted an order to us, we will contact you prior to accepting your order with the correct details. You may then either cancel your order or confirm it based on the correct information. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat your order as cancelled.

5. Refunds and Returns

5.1 When you return goods to us under condition 4:

a) A full refund will be provided on any item returned to us in the original packaging, unsoiled, within 14 days, for any reason. Alternatively the goods may be exchanged. Refunds or exchanges cannot be made before we receive the returned goods. Returns made after 14 days or soiled goods will not be eligible for refund or exchange. We will refund the price of the goods in full, but not the costs of the postage either from us or when you return the item to us.

b) we are unable to accept returns of safety items such as Riding Hats.

c) if you claim that the goods are defective, or not in accordance with their description, we will examine the returned goods and will notify you of your refund by either post, telephone or email within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you that you were entitled to a refund for the defective goods. Goods returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us, provided you return the full order to us using our Order Returns Form (copy available on the Website or from customer services).

d) if you wish to exchange the goods, and would like more information on how to do so please telephone us on 01892 863113 within 7 days of receipt of the goods. Unless the goods are faulty or not in accordance with their description we will not refund the costs you incur in returning the goods to us.

5.2 Goods can be returned to us at your cost within 14 days of delivery. You can handle the goods when you receive them to check that they are as you expected, in the same way as you would handle goods in a shop to decide whether to buy them. We may reduce the amount we refund to you where you have used the goods beyond the handling necessary for you to make sure the goods are as you expected. This does not affect your statutory rights where the goods are faulty or not as described.

5.3 You may return goods to our shop for refund or exchange even if you’ve mislaid the receipt or delivery note. Please note though, that any refund will be at the discretion of our colleagues, and will normally be given in gift vouchers to the value of the current selling price. Ordinarily if you have your receipt or delivery note we’ll refund the original amount paid to the debit, credit or charge card used to purchase the goods.

5.4 When you return personalised, custom-made or made-to-measure goods or special orders to us:

a) and where such goods are not defective, condition 4.1 does not apply and we are unable to offer an exchange or refund as the goods were made to your specification. This does not affect your statutory rights where the goods are faulty.

b) if you claim that the goods are defective, we will examine the returned goods and will notify you of your refund in accordance with condition 5.1(c) above.

Returns & Refunds

We are happy to refund or exchange goods if returned within 14 days of purchase. This excludes personalized, customized products or safety equipment such as Riding Hats. This period can be extended at Christmas time, and if you find you are unable to return the goods within this period (due to holidays etc) please call the shop on 01892 863113 we are always happy to discuss individual situations.

The goods must be returned unused, and in the condition which they were sent out. We will not accept back soiled items, so ensure when trying on rugs etc you use a clean sheet under the rug to ensure it does not get grubby and covered in hairs.

Re-package the goods in the original packaging ensuring the original labels are attached.

Please always include details of your name, address and full contact details. Please include your reason for return.

Return the goods to the Post Office or other courier, and please ensure you retain a certificate of posting, and that the goods are insured against loss or damage. If you are returning a heavy item such as a saddle, you can give us a call and we can arrange our courier to collect the parcel from you. We will advise you of the cost of this service when you contact us. You will need to provide a suitable box for the transit of your item in this situation.

Return all parcels to Chaskits Horse & Rider, Langton Road, Langton Green, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0EG – of course we are also a shop so you are very welcome if local to us to drop your return to us in person.
