Baker™ Halter is rated 4.516129032258065 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Halter! my mom gave this to me for Christmas and it was at the top of my list! I adore the traditional baker plaid, as well as the tartan. the crown piece does seem a little thin, but the rest is exceptionally durable:) The first time I put it on my horse, he rolled in it and it stayed fairley clean, and did not slide off or hurt him or anything lke that! I only wish that the crown piece was a bit more durable because it get very dirty, but nothing a little leather conditioner cant fix! I also wish it came in Tartan to match his blanket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This halter is classy enough for a show and durable enough for turnout. It looks great on my mare and matches perfectly with her baker blankets. Would definitely recommend this halter, always brings in the compliments!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but not very beefy I like everything Baker, so I outfitted my guy and my trailer with it. This halter is not very sturdy. The Baker parts are doubled, which makes it pretty beefy, but the leather on top is very thin, and I can see having to replace it soon. I'll only use it for trailering and showing, as I don't see it taking turnout well. But a very cute halter overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great halter! It looks so handsome on my boy, is durable, washes well, and fits true to size. I do wish the leather breakaway came softer right out of the box, but I just got it, so I'm sure it'll be great. Coordinates great with my other baker blankets. Get it!! :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice halter The number one reason I bought this halter is because it is a breakaway...I have been looking for a breakaway that isn't plain and boring and this baker was it! The flashy traditional baker plaid is very nice. I agree with the other reviewers as the leather crown piece does seem thin so I bought the leather replacement as well just in case it breaks. (After all it is supposed to break in case of emergency.) The halter seems to run a little big, or oddly shaped along the cheek bones but maybe it just needs to settle to frame the face better. You couldn't tell from the picture but the snap is the push down button kind, like the snap on a leadline would be. I was hoping for the other kind- push teardrop shaped closure. Overall it seems like a nice halter, hoping it settles in to a more normal shape and that the crown piece isn't too weak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baker halter this halter seems like a good quality halter. i have not been abled to use it yet, but it seems good quality. i recieved this as a gift for Christmas with the matching lead line. i actually just ordered a name plate to put on the leather piece. the leather also seems good quality as well! I cant wait to use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Longevity with Class I have owned this halter for years and only had to replace the crown piece once. Definitely a classic and not overstated. Love this halter! Durable and non-rusting hardware. Leave it outside hanging everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made Halter This halter is very well made and although it is a breakaway and worn in the field all day they are still holding up well. Great color too; doesn't show dirt badly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Looking Halter Have had this for a month. It is a nice looking halter. Good quality and holding up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Halter! I love this halter. It looks so sharp on my warmblood. It is also indestructible! Whenever it gets dirty I just soak it in a bucket and it comes out like new. It matches very nicely with my other Baker pieces as well. A great buy. The Warmblood size fits very nicely on my 17'2 hand boy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cob size would be great! Disappointing that the halter is only available in horse and large horse sizes. The horse size was way too big around the nose for my Arab gelding. The halter is great quality though, and I love the plaid pattern. It's just a matter of fitting. Making a cob size would be fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Halter Great halter, love Baker products! It does run a bit large, wish they offered a cob size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice halter Really love this halter. Looks awesome on my black warmblood. Great quality and a really nice halter. The only thing I don't like is the snap at the throat it's a bit big and gaudy and could easily get caught on something. Love that the whole crown is leather and breakaway. Awesome halter that I would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distinctive, well-made breakaway halter Although this halter does not have an adjustable chin strap (which gives it a cleaner look), it fits all of my horses well and looks good. It is easy to put on and off. I wouldn't mind having a few more of these nice halters in my tack room! The photo shows our SSH mare Twylha wearing the halter and her new Baker fly sheet, also a perfect fit, posing for an article on fly control in Trail Blazer magazine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter I have used this halter with my last horse, Graham, and I loved it. It fit him wonderfully and had the leather crown piece for safety. It is a light halter which he seemed to really enjoy. I love all of Baker's products and will keep using them for many more years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute halter I have to admit that I too was a little disappointed in the lack of quality of the leather crown piece, but the halter is so darn cute on my chestnut gelding that I 'm willing to overlook it. Besides, if it would become damaged, it's easy and cheap enough to replace. I would recommend this halter for any color horse. It's a classic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baker Halter An overall good halter, many people I know have this and say it lasts a very long time.It fits my horse well and looks nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I agree that the leather crown is a bit flimsy, but the rest of the halter is elegant and well-constructed. Runs true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable on my mare Love this halter, looks great on my dark bay mare. Haven't turned her out in it yet, so we'll see if it holds up to halter tag with her BFF.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Alright I bought the Baker Halter because I adore the plaid design and thought it would look good on my chestnut. Upon receiving it, I couldn't help but think that the leather was quite thin and not of fabulous quality at all.2 months later, the leather has held up perfect fine, though the noseband section has started to 'fuzz' at the top (like fleece pants in the dryer) from some unknown cause. It can be cut off, but you'd think a Baker problem would hold up better than that, especially for it being $15 more than a regular nylon halter that holds up like steel; JUST for the Baker name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very stylish I found the leather crown piece to be of standard quality but the overall design is marvelous and super trendy. What show horse would say no to another baker accessory?
Date published: 2011-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks and value This attractive plaid looks sharp on my black horse. I like the soft and supple breakaway leather over his poll. Noseband fits well (not too tight, not too loose on his long face) without the bulk of an extra buckle there. Snap is medium quality, an acceptable tradeoff between light weight and halter lifespan at this price.
Date published: 2011-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive Everyday Halter This is a great turnout halter! Very attractive, I get lots of compliments on it. Looks more expensive than it was! Only complaint is that the leather on a crown piece is a little thin. I've had no problems with it, but did expect the leather to be more substantial. I take my horse's halter off while she is in the field, so due to the crown piece this may not be the best choice for people that chose to leave halters on.
Date published: 2011-12-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from size too big my horse has a large head, i've always bought large for him, but this one is too big, have it on him but i wish there was another way to adjust it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT i realy love this halter! it looks so good on my chestnut mare! it expically looks good when shes wearing her Baker blanket and is in the trailer with the Baker butt bar covers and Baker trailer ties! (obsession much? i think yes!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive & Nice fit This halter has everything I was looking for, the soft leather top, the snap & great fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Halter I purchased this halter to keep on the post outside my horses pasture and through the cold and rain it has stood up well.
Date published: 2011-11-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great turnout halter Love the color. It looks great paired with his Baker stable sheet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the leather strap isn't the greatest quality. I oiled it and that helped a bit. Given the great price even if I have to replace that piece eventually I will still feel this halter is a good purchase.
