As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! 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'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I got the red and black with nameplate. The leather is soft out of the box and looks so good on my grey horse. I want to order another one for everyday use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Ribbon Halter! I love this halter so much this is the second one I've ordered. I use it for my horse's daily stable halter, and it sits out in the rain/humidity/heat all day hanging on the fence line in the brutal Houston weather and still looks amazing after two years of every day use. The leather finally did give way under the cheek when my horse sat back in the cross ties, but this has been such a great halter for so long I'm re-ordering another to replace my old one. The havana with the the blue leather looks great with my horse's blue ribbons!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter is great! I really like this halter with its nice soft leather. The nameplate looks really nice too. I purchased the brown/blue for my black & white paint and it is gorgeous on her! Great value for the price and it arrived within a week. Thanks SmartPak!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So unfortunate, the leather is very thin :( I bought this halter in March, and loved it. The padding is super-soft, and the oversize fit my big Belgian Warmblood beautifully.  I was a little worried, however, that the leather parts that were not padded--the chin piece, and the strap areas of the crown piece--appeared quite a bit thinner in depth than my other leather halters. Unfortunately, that concern was founded. The leather has dried/curled and become very worn looking in the last 6 months, and it has spent the vast majority of its life in the tackroom, as my horse has a stall-paddock and I simply bridle him in the paddock and ride out. I cleaned it a couple of times with Leather New, but in looking at it closely the other day, I have found that the areas where the buckles crease the leather have become essentially dry-rotted. Very, very disappointed. I asked Smartpak if they would replace the crown piece and chin strap at no charge, but they will not. They will, however, allow me to return it for a full credit. Sad, because the hunter green padding is beautiful, but I'm afraid that one hard pull from my horse---a 20 year old bombproof ex-showhorse--will break the strapping. Not safe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful halter! I bought this halter for my mare in black with stainless steel hardware.  I had her name and mine put on the halter plate and it looks fantastic!  The leather is very soft and the halter fits her perfectly.  I am very pleased with the quality of the leather and the engraving.  I think this halter will last a long time and I'm glad I splurged on it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beau-tiful... And wow, fast service!! I got this halter in the black on black. The stainless hardware and nameplate are absolutely beautiful. Edwardian script and this halter is pure class! Soft leather, just beautifully done. -Almost- too pretty to use! Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! I purchased this halter as my "first good"leather halter I can afford, and was surprised with the quality! Better than expected. I have purchased similar halters in the past, cheaper, that ended up having a short lifespan as the buckles would break with ease. However, this one is tough, leather is nicely stitched and my horse hasn't complained!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Shows I got the black and teal halter as an early Christmas present. It is a great for for my 15h NSH mare. I got a cob size. I also got a nameplate, and it is beautiful on the halter. I'm using the halter for some barn use, but am mainly using it for shows and for clinics, etc. I'm going to get a leather lead to go with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love... This is the most amazing leather halter I've had! Probably one of the least expensive ones too. I've had mine for about a month and I absolutely love it! It was really soft and pliable right out of the box. My chestnut mare looks great in havanna and green. A name plate is just the icing on the cake! This is a very, very beautiful halter!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I tried to convince myself that I didn't need this halter, but I loved it so much I did end up getting it. I love it!! It looks great on my horse (blue on a bay) and the leather is nice and soft. It was so convenient that I could order the name plate with the halter, and it even came a day early!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter! Ordered this for my friend's birthday, and I wish I got one for myself too! The leather was super soft right out of the box, and I love the color choices! Definitely worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Halter Excellent value. Supple leather, brass hardware, and looks like a million bucks on the horse. SmartPak rocks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Special Day Halter This halter is way too nice for every day turnout. I am very happy with the name plate and it was great to have it already on the halter before delivery. My warmblood wears an oversize and this was just perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter Love this halter! Well made, soft, just a touch of color so it looks good on your horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Halter! This halter is so well made and much less expensive than some other brand's comparable styles. The new color options for the padding are so attractive against the leather overlay. I particularly LOVE the Pumpkin on Brown! The quality of the harness leather is very high and the fastenings sturdy. I also love the way it looks on my horse and adding a nameplate really completes the halter beautifully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter We purchased one like this at the Quarter Horse Congress in October and were so excited to see them in your catalog! We wanted one for our new Friesian mare. The black with red is perfect on her. They are so well made and the leather is so soft! Well worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I bought this as a gift for a friend and she absolutely loved it and it fit her horse perfectly!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It I loved this halter, fit great, looked fabulous. I got the havana/blue one, cob sized. Unfortunately, my horse decided to break my heart and drag this brand new halter, not even a day out of the box, into his pen and destroy it. I found its mangled and broken body lying in the dirt and nearly wept at the injustice of this cruel world. Never hanging a new halter where my horse can grab it ever again. Even pawed to death and beaten to a pulp with a bent name plate, it still looks pretty darn good. If I ever get a new halter i'll get this one, and my horse won't be allowed to wear it except on show days!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Halter! I received this halter for Christmas for my friesian gelding in black. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy Halter This halter is great quality for the price. The leather is super soft right out of the box. It does run small. I first purchased the regular horse size for my 15.3h 1280lb tb/paint gelding, based on the size recommendation on the product page. He does have a large head, but I took a chance. I ended up having to exchange it for the oversize. The cheek pieces seem to be short. If your horse has a long head, this halter probably would not fit.
