We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

    Kensington Breakaway Halter with Lead is rated 4.5106 out of 5 by 141.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful but CHEAP hardware didn't last a season I have a 12 yo gelding who is turned out during the day in his halter. It looked well made, but broke in less than 3 months. I have to say I've never seen such flimsy hardware--how do you break real metal? (Note the piece that should hold this buckle in is completely missing...which also means there's an inch-long piece of gold "metal" somewhere in their pasture that could skewer a hoof. That will be fun to go try to find in 20 acres.) Usually I only have to replace a halter every couple of years and that's just because it starts to look faded or frayed, but like others said, Kensignton really cut corners on the hardware. Interesting, in re-reading the description it just says "brass plated hardware"--plated what? Wouldn't buy or recommend Kensington again after this experience, which is a shame because the rest of the halter still looks new and was gorgeous on. Just can't trust the safety if it breaks this easily under regular wear. Thanks Smartpak for standing behind this purchase. You guys are always great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bummer! I was so excited to get these halters and put them on my horses. They are so pretty! Like everyone else said, the breakaway pieces are not strong, so I had to replace them soon after getting the halters. Now about a year later, the hardware is completely rusty on one of my halters. My horses are not turned out with halters and the halters are kept out of the elements. This was a big bummer! The halter looks terrible and I will soon have to replace it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty and that is about it Not impressed with the leather breakaway halter. It is VERY weak and a replacement leather strap costs only 3 bucks but to buy only a replacement costs a lot after shipping is included! The padded nose band has cracked within two mths. This halter is very eye appealing and would be good for just basic pasture wear but not for anything more then that (ie; tie up for tacking up, trailering), not worth the 50 bucks. Lead rope is very durable and soft in your hands. Wish this would have worked out. Happy that SmartPak will take it back, even after 6mths!!I have a draft cross and purchased this in the pink.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter with nice looks I have been using this halter for over a month now and it has been great. I think it will last for years. I find it to be thicker and higher quality than other, cheaper halters. I originally ordered the X-large for my 16.3 hand warmblood cross based on other people's reviews. My horse does not have a large warmblood-like head. I ended up having to exchange the halter for a size Large. This one fits him perfectly. It looks very nice too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This halter is just perfect. The material is easy to clean off mud and dirt and the latch is easy to open and close. I love that there is padding and this halter looks great on my horse. The breakaway piece has not broken over the last 4 months with daily turnout. I get lots of compliments on this halter. I love this halter and definitely recommend it!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from WORST BREAKAWAY PEICE I bought this for my lesson horse. It looks good on him however he broke the brake away piece in the pasture. And when I ordered the replacements they are smaller and the screws fall off so easy! I might try using a screw driver but not to terribly happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy but runs large! I just received this halter and took it out to my horse today. I ordered the large and it is too big. I buckled the poll strap and the chin strap on the last holes and it was still too big. But I can tell it is sturdy and well made so I'm just going to exchange it for a medium. I really like the halter itself. For reference, my horse is a 15.1hh TB mare. She is pretty fine boned, but has a longish head. I am sure the medium will fit her perfectly.
