Padded Replacement Leather Crown Piece
great product, runs very short
I purchased this to convert a non_ breakaway halter into a safety halter. I replaced the crown but had to add another buckle because it was so short. Very nice quality though, looks like it will hold up well. The neoprene is a great addition and the leather looks top notch. But my 16 hand thoroughbred is not that big and this was still too short.

Nice enough and well made, but it seems to either be too long or needs more holes punched. I have it on the top hole on both sides on my average head sized horse. Would like more adjust-ability. Frustratingly the top hole on one side is covered up by the neoprene padding so it is not useable. Seems to be poor attention to detail on someone's part.

Great replacement piece
This piece even better than leather. It's a little sturdier and doesn't break as easily as leather.

Where have these been all my life? No more stiff, ugly, cheapo replacement breakaway crown pieces on MY darling's halters! Just because we need safety, doesn't mean we need to live without comfort and elegance, now does it. Bought my youngster's first "big boy" halter, bought the nameplate for field turnout at the trainer's, saw this and ordered it, I am delighted! Soft, richly grained black leather, even the holes are crisply punched! Nice generously padded crown area with textured neoprene. Looks rich on navy/brass nylon halter. Kept the plain leather one that came with halter for the spare. You will be happy with this.

Only for small horses
I bought this for my average sized horse and it was way too small and had to return it. Must be cob sized. Good quality though!

Great quality and value, but only comes in horse size. Bummer. It was too small for the horse I purchased it for, but it will be fine to have on hand for my smaller horses. I purchased the same crown piece at my local feed store in a Warmblood size and it fits perfectly. SmartPak should definitely carry more sizes, as I know there are a lot of big and tall horses out there!
