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)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What Could Be Smarter What could be smarter, or less expensive when you care about safely turning your horse out and standing him on cross ties? I wouldn't have a halter without a breakaway strap. These never clash with halter colors as they tuck out of sight under the side buckle. And I can usually punch another hole for two uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install This product was easier to install than I expected. It was a very inexpensive fix for my favorite halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes any Halter Safer I bought a bunch of these after one of my nicer nylon halters was turned into a "safety" halter by a well meaning stable hand - by removing this part of the crown piece and replacing it with flimsy plastic zip ties! I understood the thought behind it but didn't think zip ties made my halter any safer. So I bought one of these and used it in place of the zip ties. Worked like a charm and I picked up a few spares in case they are needed due to emergency breakage. If your nylon halter is not a breakaway style, consider replacing this part of the halter with one of these little leather straps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was able to replace the broken tab Instead of buying a whole new halter, easy to do took just a few seconds and the halter was good as new and the price is very good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace or Create! I keep multiples of these on hand, not just as replacements - my guys are pretty easy on their halters - but also to put on a new halter that doesn't have the safety release. I just cut out the short piece of nylon in the section where the release would normally go, screw one of these in it's place, and, Voila!, a safety halter! Sturdy and eases my mind, since my horses are pastured with halters on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have These are a must have for breakaway halters. I ordered two so that there is always a spare.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase...Could be stronger I like the idea of this breakaway piece, but I think they could be made a little bit stronger. My horse was coming off the trailer (unhooked on his leadrope) and pulled to run backwards off the trailer and the breakaway strap let go. It wasn't that hard of a pull, but it did let go. Glad it works, looks nice, just wish a little more durable. Great price, bought four replacements just to be on the safe side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! My other leather safety release broke so I decided to give this product a try. It works better than any of the other leather replacements I have tried! Durable and reliable...but also safe. I only wish it came in the color black.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great After my gelding broke his breakaway halter I needed a replacement leather piece. I order two of these (one back-up in case it happened again) and they fit the halter great!
    Date published: 2010-06-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This replacement piece is shorter/smaller than the pevious one. Now the halter chafes my horses cheekbones, which was never a problem in the past.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorites! These are my favorite replacement tabs. I have custom halters for my horses that are not available with a breakaway, so I modify them myself with these tabs. This brand is the the closest to the same length as the nylon piece that comes with the halter. I think they're great! Not too thick which wouldn't break away easily, and not too thin to stretch a lot either. They're just right!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wallet saving tool My horse tends to spook and break his halter easily. This little strap saves me a lot of $. I bought a few of them and they are great. I wish they were a little longer, however they apply very easily.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works OK but different size The Kensington breakaway halter that Smartpak sells is the one who needs this leather strap for repair. It is not as long as the one in the original halter, but can still be fitted to work without difficulty, but makes halter a bit smaller.
    Date published: 2010-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thing you can buy! I truely think these are one of the best things you can buy! I've had quite a few horses break them, and every time they do, I'm thankful they did! I will NEVER use non-breakaway halters, they can kill. These ave fit on about 5 halters I've tried them on!Do this for yourself, and your horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! My daughter's has a plaid halter which lost it's chicago screw. Her dog got a hold of the leather piece before I could get a screw to fix it. Your leather replacement piece was exactly what I needed to fix the halter!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Safety Feature I use these on many halters and will continue to do so. The only reason I rated the durability low is because the product is *meant* to break to protect your horse.
    Date published: 2009-04-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I love these breakaway tabs. They're sturdy enough to hold during normal use and stress, but will absolutely break if needed. I keep a few handy, just in case.You can also use these to convert all-nylon halters to breakaways. Just cut off the nylon strap attaching the buckle to the near cheek ring, and install this tab in its place. If you use non-breakaways, please be sure to never leave them on unattended. My stable recently lost a horse who had a nylon halter left on overnight. If his halter had one of these on it, he would still be alive.
