Reviews
Big D Nylon Halter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality changed from older Big D Needs more holes on crown piece. Hardware is cheaper quality then my older Big D's. Probably won't buy again due to this. Weaver is just as good and cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Halter! I bought this for my gelding, and it was wonderful! I love the color options, the blue especially. My horse looked absolutely dapper in this halter, and it was very adjustable, so it was a breeze fitting it to his small head. I am sure this would have lasted forever, but it went missing about three days after I brought it to him. I highly recommend this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice color I ended up sending this halter back. I didn't pay attention to the fact that the adjustment holes were melted in, instead of metal eyes. Also the connecting strap from the throat latch to the nose band doesn't lay flat because it has a loop in the nylon instead of a brass piece. The overall quality is good and the fit is true. I really liked the blue color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter I bought this a few weeks ago as a replacement halter. Very happy with it. Fits my horse well. Seems well constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty I love my baby halter! It fits great. Mines now sunbleached from sitting out at the pasture, so I will buy a new one soon!
Date published: 2017-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best halters! I absolutely love Big D halters! I have used them for almost 40 years. They are very durable and fit great. I haven't found another halter that compares to Big D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid basic everyday halter I put this halter on my horse immediately, she's been out in all kinds of weather and it's holding up great and I don't expect any problems. I like the sturdy hardware and stitching. I may have actually ordered a size too big or the halter runs slightly big. The halter adjusted just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turnout halter Great halter for turnout in the pasture with company. Really durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice halter I ordered this for my quarter horse. It was too big but the halter was really nice. Guess my horse has a small head.
Date published: 2016-10-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice features I thought it would fit an Arab, a little big. I like the side latch. The nose adjustment makes it fit ok.
Date published: 2016-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described! This halter is top quality and I really like that the throat latch unsnaps so I can trim my horse without removing his halter.
Date published: 2016-05-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality good value I bought this for my boy a couple weeks ago. He looks handsome and its secure and functional for me. Win win!
Date published: 2016-04-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Nice halter but had to return it. The mini size is for a very small mini. My guy is 35" tall and 30" bit to bit. Weighs about 150. It was way too small for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nylon halter I bought this for my horses during turnout. It is a great quality halter; well made and great, sturdy hardware. Great colors too. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big D is great! Big D halters are soft, fit well and last. I've had other brands over the years but these are my favorite. Also use and love their blankets & sheets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter - very durable and long-lasting! This is my 3rd Big-D Halter and I will never use anything else because of it's durability and quality!
Date published: 2015-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, good fit I just bought this halter, and am happy with the construction. I have only used it a couple of times, so I can't attest to its durability, but it looks like it will hold up well.
Date published: 2015-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice halter for the price purchased halter for horse that lives in pasture, hanging a halter of leather whether crown or whole halter out at the gate is not worth it, the leather just gets ruined, so purchased this nylon halter for that purpose, nicely adjustable for size of nose and head.. when wet tho this halter stretches and when hot dry in the sun, shrinks.. but have noticed that with all other nylon halters as well so not just a flaw with this brand
Date published: 2014-11-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality is great, but doesn't fit Bought the miniature size for my mini mare. It barely fits my mini foal. Wherever these are made, they must have ultra tiny minis. I'll probably end up using it for my sheep instead. Also, I don't care for the hook clipping to the outside. We've had horses get their halters stuck on the fence when they're rubbing against it. That's why I needed a new one. The horse struggled to get free and bent the snap hook. Hooks should be able to go in or out depending on the preferences of the owner. My horses don't wear halters when in their home pastures - but if they do have them on, it shouldn't be so easy to get hung up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter Material is soft yet durable. Doesn't scratch the face and the hardware is top quality. Fit is a bit big for my 1000 lb. Arabian gelding, but the multiple adjustments available make it work nicely.
Date published: 2014-09-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! THis halter is really nice and sturdy, it's a little big for my Warmblood's head (I got a large) but he will live. I like the color, thick nylon and tough hard wear. I like this halter.
Date published: 2014-05-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from fine Just wanted a sturdy barn halter with throat latch.  I might say it runs a tad small.  I got navy with brass which looks a bit cheap.  Their nickel looks a little spiffier.
Date published: 2014-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! My horse had broken 2 halters previously from other companies and when I saw this halter, I knew it would be perfect for him due to the heavy-duty quality!  The hunter green looks great on him too!  Thank you for another great product!
Date published: 2013-12-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy! I put this on my Polish Warmblood and he is usually really rough with his halters but this one had held up great! Hardly comes off and easy to maintain. My only problem after a while the brass color fades but still looks great!
Date published: 2013-11-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality So far, so good! This halter is very well made and very adjustable to get the perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter I love Big D halters. Great quality. This halter comes in all the sizes needed for growing foals, weanlings, 2 years olds and adults.
Date published: 2013-02-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice nylon halter, about what you'd expect I ordered this for a 17-hand Percheron cross who has a BIG head. I initially ordered the 1500+ pound size, but that one was too big even for my horse. I sent it back and SmartPak exchanged it, no problem, for the next size down. I'm not crazy about the look of the "gold" hardware. It doesn't look like brass, and overall I'd prefer steel or chrome.
