Where is my Refund or Exchange?

*Please note: Your refund may take several business days from the time your return is processed until you see the refund in your financial institution*

How it works:
- After you ship your return back, it’s received by USPS or Fedex at one of their hubs and consolidated with other returns packages. Finally, they deliver your package (along with other customer’s packages) back to our Littleton, Massachusetts customer service center. It arrives back to us generally between 10-21 days after you ship it depending on your geographic location and which service is used to ship it back. Some carriers have been running over three weeks on returning packages to us.
- Once your return is actually delivered to the Dover Saddlery facility, your package is opened, handled, and your request for a refund or exchange is processed between 3-5 business days.

Refunds:
- Your refund is processed, and information is sent from Dover Saddlery to your financial institution.
- Your refund will be accepted by your financial institution and show on your account in 1-4 business days. (This varies depending on your financial institution’s policy and processing time)

Exchanges:
- Your exchange item is processed depending on availability and is shipped from our warehouse within 48 business hours from the time the exchange order is placed. Items shipping from the manufacturer may take a bit longer.
