13. Trial begins on the day you receive your parcel as recorded by postal company or for local customers on the day you collected the saddle from Saddle Central . If a parcel is left uncollected either at the post office or at Saddle Central for more than 7 days the Trial period will be forfeited.

If returning a saddle by post you must email us to notify us that it is being posted, the email should include your name, saddle details and tracking number for the parcel. We must receive this email by close of business on or before the 8th day.  If we do not receive an email by the 8th day then we will assume that the saddle is sold. Many saddles we sell are being sold on behalf of owners. On the 9th day we will pay the owner of the saddle, so saddles returned without notifying us will not be accepted for a refund.
