Thankfully manufacturing faults are rare and we would expect these to become apparent shortly after the product is used for the first time. There is an assumption that products purchased more than 6 months ago that have developed damage are unlikely to be faulty. Please contact us as soon as you think your product may have developed a fault and we will discuss with you the best way for us to manage the process. Please email us at Suzanne@smeethsaddlery.co.uk with full details of your purchase and any fault and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively please feel free to call us on 01945 585998
