From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.464285714285714 out of 5 by 196.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter and price My horse was traveling and I wanted a safe halter for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong yet soft Alive had other breakaway halters hat broke too easily and became stiff with turnout use. This one is still flexible and soft for the horse, and the leather part is strong enough to not break unless it has to. Fits great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a halter It's nice. Not cheaply made. Fits nicely. Nice color options

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Halter on the Market I've been using SmartPak halters for years and love them! The clip is easy to use and they fit well on my horses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good turnout halter Quality turnout halter that looks good and has held up well after 3-4 weeks of turnout.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this halter a month ago and it is holding up ok. My only complaint is that I wish it was a heavier gauge of nylon and thicker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the navy blue. I love the navy blue color to match my horse's fly sheet. It looks great on him and fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Halter I'm like the 10th person in the barn to purchase one of these halters and I'm glad I did! It's sturdy and looks great. Not to mention it's a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality halter, well made. Runs large. Buckles and snaps are of good quality, solid halter. Looks great. Runs large. Overall, good quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great every day halter Perfect for turn out. Runs a little big, but still fits.
Date published: 2016-05-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality I am very happy with the quality of this product. I purchased two since our pony is hard on halters and typically requires frequent replacements. However, the first one has held up so well that we have not yet needed to use our backup. My only issue was that the size was too big. We were able to adjust the fit by punching an extra hole in the leather band.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs large I was disappointed that while my horse usually wears a large in weaver brand and oversized in bridles, this halter is too big and have to adjust on the last holes. Quality is less than weaver. The snap under his cheek is backwards so it faces toward his cheek instead of away so it pokes him. Also unhappy that it snags and collects shavings so my poor guy is wearing his bedding all the time. I needed a halter that he could safely wear 24/7 due to recent haltering issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this halter for our new old pony. It is well made, fits very well and expect it to give us long service.
Date published: 2016-04-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality This halter is very nice, I do wish it fit my horse a little better. I have the crown piece adjusted to fit a shorter head, but then the strap that clips under her throat is just a little too snug. She seems to be between the cob and horse size.
Date published: 2016-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable My horse is in a situation that he has to wear his halter all the time and gets turned out with a large group of horses during the day. My horse being a 4 year old plays all the time and this halter has held up and still looks nice.
Date published: 2016-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic Halter I needed a halter for everyday use, and chose this one because it offers the breakaway feature, nice colors, and is reasonably priced. I was happy with the overall quality when I received it.
Date published: 2016-04-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy halter I bought 2 halters to use for turn out. They are very durable. The only thing I don't like is that they are not stiff around the nose making it difficult to get on at times
Date published: 2016-04-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good halter for a good price I like to keep an extra halter or 2 around the barn, just in case! This is a great product that won't break the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter for a great price! Perfect turnout halter- looks nice and fits well. Great Value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter Not as heavy as Hamilton Halters, but nice quality. I think adjustable nose runs big and did not fit my horse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not to bad for the money ... but The halter is ok ... but I am already having issues with the clip - like its starting to spring...like its broken already
Date published: 2016-03-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter, weird sizing I tried to love this halter, but it just didn't work for my 16.3 tb gelding. It is very nice quality with soft nylon, but I'm not sure about the sizing. My gelding has the Wellfleet hunter bridle in a regular horse size, and numerous leather and turnout halters in horse size, but this halter was HUGE. Even on the smallest hole the horse size was enormous. The throatlatch strap was dangerously loose, I was afraid he would catch his hoof while grazing. Smartpak is awesome and sent me a cob size, which I really tried to make work, but in the end it just was not fitting. The cob was still pretty big everywhere except the noseband was tight. It is possible that my gelding just doesn't have the right shape head for this, so I'm still giving it 4 stars, and smartpak is the best as usual!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great choice for home halter purchased this halter to hang on the fence gate of paddock for horse at home. just needed something that could be in the weather, but also be breakaway, and adjustable because horses face is funny sized and not break the bank. this halter fit the requirements perfectly. the nylon is soft and doesnt shrink like other halters, color is nice and the adjustability works great for my funny sized thoroughbred head. glad I purchased it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality halter Have been using the smart pak break away halter for a few weeks now for stable and turn out use. So far so good. I got it because i needed a new breakaway and i like the leather strap break away style and i know someone who likes the way their smart pal one is holding up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Turnout Halter Bought 2 as gifts and one for my horse. I needed to punch more holes to get a good fit in two of the horses.
Date published: 2016-01-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking halter I love how this halter looks. It is nicer than a plain nylon halter and the breakaway leather not only looks fancy but has a functional purpose to break if it needs to. I found a matching navy lead in a local tack store and the set looks great! My horse has a large head and the top leather strap is adjustable to fit. Very happy!
