    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter We use this halter for t/o and I just love it. The pink color combination looks super cute on my buckskin, and I really like the breakaway feature, as well. The cute plaid also hides dirt really well, which is a huge plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter This is a very beautiful halter that is well-made. It looks great on my horse and I received several compliments on it from barnmates. The checkered design hides the barn dust well and even though we use it every day, it looks new and clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Halter! I purchased this halter in large for my 16.2hh thoroughbred and it fit him absolutely perfect right out of the package! In the past, with nearly every halter I've bought for him, I've had to add holes around the nose piece due to his longer, narrower face. I love the padded nose band, which sits nicely and gives him some added protection without rubbing or leaving marks. The blue plaid is beautiful on him with his bay coloring and I would buy him another without hesitation when the time comes! I ordered a few extra breakaway pieces to have on hand, and immediately changed out the one that comes with the halter The replacement tabs are much stronger than the original and I haven't had to change it yet (he is pastured with 8 other geldings). I'm VERY pleased with this halter and the lead rope that comes with it. The quality of both are great and match nicely! Definitely 5 stars!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adore this halter. It is amazingly durable, safe, and the plaid colors are great! My pony has yet to lose his SmartBlue halter (knock on wood). It fits him perfectly (he is a larger pony, so the medium fits him to a tee), and I like how the safety release is a small leather piece on the side rather than up over the poll. It is very easy to replace. Great quality and a great price! Definitely purchase this for your horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Halter! I love the quality of this halter! Excellent purchase that lasts! I have bought two and am planning to buy a third for my horse. I bought the second to give him a color change in his "wardrobe". The noseband is a nice, soft leather so it doesn't rub. Everyone at the farm always compliments Doc on his halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cute! I ordered the SmartPink halter/lead and it looks adorable on my palomino paint! It fits him perfectly (He's 16hh) and I ordered the Large, standard horse size. I like the material and the lead is very bright compared to other equipment in the barn. I only gave it 4 stars in value because even though its very cute, I still believe its a bit overpriced. I do love the kensington line though!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Small I've had this halter for about a year now, but I only used it for about 8 months before making it a spare. I loved that it was a nice breakaway halter, and the quality is impeccable. But it does run small, and was pretty expensive. Very stylish though, I love the look - probably the most attractive, well made nylon halter I've owned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cute This halter set is really cute, a little expensive compared to other halter sets that are available but the other ones are not nearly as cute and quality is not as good. The throat latch is good quality and strong, seems like it will last a while. I would buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from breakaway for no trama drama nice halter, nose padding is nice but cracks pretty easily, main part of halter is very durable and easy to clean. I've used the halter for over a year and its been on pretty much for the entire time.(I have a mare no one but me can halter and is an escape artist). unfortunately for me the strap breaks if you look at it cross eyed. the leather break away is VERY thin, thinner then any other break away strap I've encountered or used. so the design for break away is good. looks fabulous with the bay coat of my arab though. also looks nice on a sorrel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look but not the price For the quality of the halter, i think the price is a little high. I love the design, but for the price i think it could be a little more durable and tough. Ive had mine for two years and it shows alot of wear, especially under the noseband . I love to stay with the "kensington theme", but the halter wore down quickly with use, where as the fly mask, boots, and sheet are tough as nails. For the higher price id like them to be a little more durable than the 25$ halters at tractor supply.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Buy! I bought this halter for my Arabian gelding in the light blue and I absolutely love it! He is black and the overlays are light blue/white/black plaid which looks great on him. Halter seems to be great quality, brass is nice and shiny and has not turned at all, although the brass on the lead line has started to a bit, after only a month, but it was free with the halter, so I'm okay with that. Some people were saying to order up a size but I disagree- my gelding usually wears a cob and the medium size was perfect for him and ran true to size. I also ordered the extra breakaway piece but don't see any problems in the construction, it should hold up fine as long as your horse is a frequent puller backer or head tosser. Definitely recommend!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately a good buy I bought two of these halters after reading the other reviews, I'm glad that I did. They look beautiful and are made well. My mare did rear and pull away from the trailer and one of them broke (as it should have) I am not upset about it. I will be buying these for all of my horses soon, but I would definately invest in the replacement strap...never know what might happen :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disappointing 2nd time around... originally i ordered the Smart Blue O/S halter for my Oldenburg mare---fit beautifully, I was incredibly impressed with the good quality stitching and durability of the halter. Just recently i went to the Smartpak store and picked up the green color---looks great, but when i got home i saw that the lead rope was a disaster. one of the nylon strings (for lack of a better word) was defected (lumpy). I was very disappointed...i expected better quality. i love this combo set, my only complaint is that the leather tab seems to be a little bit thin/flimsy---especially when you have a 1200lb warmblood on the other end of the rope who thinks eating grass is more fun than going places with a human.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter! I'm very impressed with the quality of this halter! Although I purchased my new horse (& this halter) less than a month ago, it appears very durable. The padding on the nose is very nice, and even though it's white, it has stayed pretty clean. The blue plaid looks really sharp on my black Paint gelding. I was also impressed with the quality of the lead rope, it's longer & nicer than I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty! Bought the mint/sage - very pretty on my Chestnut. A little wide in the nose, but otherwise fits great.
    Date published: 2011-06-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Halter! If something ever happens to this halter, I want another one just like it. It looks perfect; it's well made; it's comfortable for my horse...there's nothing I would change. I read in the other reviews it ran small, so I bought a larger size. I don't think I really should have done that, as this one is a little big on my mare. I would say it runs true to size. Also bought the extra breakaway piece, but thankfully haven't had to use it. Highly recommend this halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it in blue, ADORABLE in pink! I've had this halter in SmartBlue Plaid for my chestnut mare for about a year now. It was finally time to get a new halter for my white pony mare, and as the blue one has worn so well, I opted to buy again. As the pony is my little sister's, what choice did I really have but to buy the SmartPink?!? She looks absolutely adorable in it. She's a very large pony, so I opted for the horse size. It fits her, but I might have gone with a size smaller. We've gotten multiple compliments on it, and I love the matching lead line- no one else has one nearly as awesome!
    Date published: 2011-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, attractive halter I bought this for my golden chestnut Trakehner mare last summer, and the SmartBlue plaid looks absolutely amazing on her! The padding on the noseband is easy to clean- just a damp rag works wonders- and has yet to split or crack. I would agree with the reviews that say that this halter runs small- my girl wears a cob in everything else, but I originally got a medium and had to send it back for a large. (Thanks or being so great about the exchange, by the way! :D) It has withstood halter tag games, spooks, winter ice, spring mud, etc... and is only a bit faded. Definitely worth the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and fit! I bought this halter for the SmartBlue plaid color. I love the quality, and the halter fits extremely well. I did have some trouble with the leather safety piece for the first few months. It seems it's more durable after it has been worn in a bit. My pony never lost this halter, which is surprising as he has managed to destroy or lose every other one he has had. The halter is so nice, someone at my barn stole it when she moved her horses too! I promptly ordered a replacement and am extremely satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Halter Ever I love this halter! It looks so good on my QH Gelding. I like that it's leather padded and it also comes with a matching lead rope. I have most of the SmartBlue tack avaliable and it all looks so cute together! This is a great halter and well worth the money spent.
