**All crystals that are eligible for warranty must have all of the prongs attached to the individual cup containing the crystal(s) needing warranty repair or service. If the prongs are missing, the product is not eligible for warranty coverage because this is not considered to be manufacturing failure. However, a repair may still be completed for a fee.
The products eligible for warranty are covered to the original owner, for the time-frame as outline above. If your product fails due to a manufacturing defect we will repair it without charge, or replace it, at our discretion. Only original, unaltered and unmodified materials and workmanship are covered by this policy. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use. Damage not covered under warranty may be repaired for a reasonable rate and a fee will be charged for return shipping.
For warranty evaluation, your product must be returned directly to the dealer it was purchased from. If your purchase was made on the store.bonvivantequine.com website, please include a copy of your receipt and send to: Bon-Vivant Equestrian Warranty Department. PO Box 423 Kennebunk, ME 04043. All shipping to Warranty must be pre-paid and insured. The Bon-Vivant™ or Beasties™ cannot be liable for lost in-bound packages. Products accepted for repair be clean and free of hair, dirt and debris. Charges will be assessed if cleaning is necessary or product may be returned to you if it cannot be adequately cleaned.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Warranty & Repair Questions
The Beasties™ limited warranty covers manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship, but it does not cover normal wear and tear. Wear and tear is damage that naturally and inevitably occurs as a result of normal use. Regardless of how carefully you use, or how well you care for your Beasties™ horse tack product, it will eventually begin to show age and wear. Common examples of wear and tear that would not be covered under the lifetime warranty include colors fading, breakdown of stitching due to cleaning products, scratches and abrasions and general breakdown of the materials over the years.
If your warranted product by Beasties™ fails due to a manufacturing defect in materials or workmanship, our first option will be to repair the item (just pay the shipping to get it to us and the rest is free of charge to you). If the product is not repairable, or if the cost of repairing the item exceeds the cost of a new one, we will replace it. If your Beasties™ product has special memories attached to it that make it irreplaceable to you, please indicate so on the Warranty Return Form and we will not replace it and it will be returned to you.
Our typical turnaround time is 2-8 weeks from the time we receive your product until it is returned to you. In some cases we can get it back to you sooner. In some cases, it may take longer. During peak season our turnaround time can be longer than eight weeks. If your product needs to be sent out to be cleaned, you may expect up to two additional weeks before it will be returned to you.
