COLLEGIATE WARRANTY

Collegiate offers a 2-year warranty on a saddle’s materials and workmanship, and a 10-year warranty on the saddle tree’s materials and workmanship (“Collegiate Guarantee”).


Warranty against defects:

In addition to any rights and remedies you may have under Australian Consumer Law, Weatherbeeta Pty Ltd “Collegiate” provides purchasers of the Collegiate saddle with the Collegiate Guarantee.

The Collegiate Guarantee becomes effective from the date of purchase of your Collegiate saddle.

The Collegiate Guarantee is administered by appointed Collegiate retailers.

  • Repair, refund or replace your Collegiate saddle (or the defective parts thereof) at no cost, if found to have faulty materials or workmanship within 2 years of the date of purchase.
  • Repair, refund or replace your Collegiate saddle (or the defective parts thereof) at no cost, if found to have a breakage in the saddle tree for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase.


Warranty exclusions:

  • Normal wear and tear;  
  • Negligence, lack of care or neglect;
  • Use of saddle for anything other than equestrian pursuits;
  • Use of parts or accessories other than those produced or recommended for use with and in a Collegiate saddle;
  • Repairs or alterations carried out by third parties not in accordance with Collegiate recommendations or standards; and/or

You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
