    Baker™ Halter is rated 4.5465 out of 5 by 86.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Fit The halter fits well, is well made and the hardware is good quality, heavy duty brass. Overall, I am very pleased with this halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I have had the hardest time trying to find a nice, well-fitting halter for my Belgian/QH mare. She is very hard to fit! Her head is too small for an oversize, but most horse size halters were too tight in the throat. I decided to order this because I love Baker products, and since some of the reviews said the horse size seemed generous, I felt like it would work. This halter fits her perfectly, and has held up to her beating it up everyday as well. I will say that it is more generous than your average horse size halter, so take that into consideration when picking your size.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the halter but hardware has rusted fast My guy has been using this daily for 9 months. It seems to run true to size: he is a 17 hh WB with a thick throatlatch and the extra large fits him well. I love the halter, but the hardware (especially the throatlatch snap) has started getting rusty. When I looked up the item to write this review I noticed that the hardware is "brass-plated" rather than solid brass, which must be the issue (?). It is kept either in the barn or under cover outside, so it doesn't sit in the rain for hours. I'm bummed because it's a nice-looking halter but I won't buy another one. At that price I would expect the hardware to last as long as the nylon does.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dapper My handsome little palomino looks like a real dapper dan in his new halter. I bought it for attending shows as it has the thin break away leather crown (for safety). I had a brass name plate added to the cheek to prevent it from disappearing while in my class. The nylon is not soft and I would not use it as a daily halter. The designer look, though, makes it perfect for the occasional trip out, as we are all equestrians first and fashionistas second.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Baker Style I purchased this because I love the 5/A Baker style and reputation for durability. With spring coming, I wanted his halter to match his turnout sheet. Some of the prior reviews I read mentioned the thin leather -- but that didn't deter my purchase. I can always replace.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Baker Halter Good Buy Purchased this as a turnout halter for a fairly large headed horse. It fits well, I really like the English chin. My only complaint is the leather crown piece was very flimsy making it hard to slide the halter on and off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handsome halter! I wanted a halter that would be safe and durable for turnout and daily use... and I also wanted something that would look handsome on my gelding. This fit the bill! The leather crown is on the thinner side... but it's still quite sturdy. Nice quality, seems to be wearing very nicely.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great, has that BAKER look of luxury This is a great halter for the price. Baker has an air of luxury and horse people recognize that. It looks much more expensive. I like the safety and look of the leather head piece and the cleanable body of the halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great The leather looks way better in person I was pleasantly surprised. It looks and fits great for an everyday halter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't live up to my expectations I love Baker products but was a little let down by this halter. I ordered the large horse size for my 17 hand warmblood. It was so big that even with the crown piece on the tightest holes it hung really loosely under his face. Maybe it would have fit a very large draft horse. I could have exchanged it with SmartPak's free shipping however I just wasn't in love with it. The nylon is thin as is the leather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love. Love. Love. This halter is a great, everyday barn halter. It looks very nice and I love knowing that my horse can go out in the pasture with it on and if it gets caught it will just break away. I've turned my horse out, groomed, trailered, and bathed her in this halter. It still looks great and is holding up amazingly! It also fits really well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this halter - Baker never ceases to amaze! I just wish it came in a Cob size - it's definitely too large for my petite mare's head. Otherwise, great halter at a great price (especially for a Baker product)!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter I've only had it for about a month, so I don't know how it will stand the test of time, but so far so good. It fits my horse perfectly and it hides dirt well. It gets lots of compliments too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Durable, Looks Nice after Six Years! I bought this halter over six years ago as a nice halter that my horse could wear around the barn. I use it daily and it has been used on three different horses with cob to oversized heads and it fit all of them very well. The halter still looks amazing and all I have replaced is the leather breakaway top after my horse has a moment.I love the brass and I love the snap at the cheek. Makes it easy to get on an off. The durability of this halter will make me buy it again. If this one ever wears out! Worth the purchase price.

    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.
