    Baker™ Halter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 105.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I like these a lot. They hold up well to 24/7 use (and these horses love to play). The nylon is stiffer which I actually prefer because it creates less pressure on their poll/face. The leather of the crown piece is soft right out of the box and is long enough to accommodate many different size heads. It's true to size (cob fits my 15.2 & 15.3 TBs perfectly, horse fits my 16-17.2hh group). I love how the clasp on the throatlatch still works even when it's coated in mud (other halter's the clasp gets jammed with mud). Overall, these are awesome. I think I found my new go-to breakaway halter!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive looking halter! We like the Baker products and bought this halter because we knew it would look great on our Bay colored Trakehner and it did!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks amazing on bays I love all baker on my bay. He's definitely his print. This halter was no exception. It holds up great too. The other reviews say the leather piece breaks and mine hasn't so I don't know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good turnout halter Bought this halter as a backup turnout halter and it is so nice that I made it worthy of an every day halter. It was a tad stiff to start with, but after a few days of rolling in the mud and then getting cleaned, it is looking and wearing wonderfully.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality- not Baker Plaid I ordered this halter 5 plus years ago and loved it. This halter I just received is a cheap imataion! It is a tan and black halter, true Baker plaid has navy in the plaid. Faux brass as well. The head piece is thin, and one jerk and I'll be replacing it. What happened! So disappointed!
    Date published: 2016-10-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it, but snap rusted quickly I *love* this halter... but I've had it for about 1.5 months and already the snap is rusting. It won't swivel anymore. I've applied WD-40 and other agents to try and get it moving again, but no dice. It's a bummer... but it still looks pretty awesome;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite halter!!! I bought this halter because I wanted a breakaway halter that is a different color. I fell in love with this halter!!! It has held up great even with games like halter tag. It is extremely durable to say that the leather is thin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This halter is awesome! This is the second one I've purchased (the previous one was purchased for a large horse.) It's super cute and looks good on almost any color horse. My only complaint is that the noseband isn't adjustable.

    Date published: 2015-11-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but breaks too easily. The Baker Breakaway halter looks great and works well...perhaps too well. The leather strap, which is very thin, broke the first time I used it. My horse barely pulled and it broke. Then I had to go catch him because he was loose. Thankfully, I brought a back up halter. I'll be looking for a thicker replacement strap. Not sure I would purchase again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought in 2013 - still going! I own a large hanoverian warmblood with a stocky build. I tried 4 halters before this one, and this is by far the best fitting. I purchased the halter from SmartPak in 2013 and have used it as an everyday barn halter since. We are going on our second leather crown piece (our stall & pasture partner is 1yo and uses the ends as a chew toy) but the nylon and hardware are in perfect condition. As usual, a Baker product that fits and lasts. I highly recommend.
    Date published: 2015-09-16
    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.
    Date published: 2015-08-03
    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 5 out of 5 by from looks great! fits perfectly! gave this as a gift to one of my best friends for her TB gelding. it fits perfectly & looks gorgeous on a dark bay!
    Date published: 2015-04-26
    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.
    Date published: 2015-03-10
    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.
    Date published: 2015-01-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit Halter appears to be of high quality. Fits very nicely & looks great.

    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.
