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'!).

Did your horse break the leather safety release on his halter? The Replacement Leather Safety Release fits halters with a breakaway on the cheek piece under the buckle (fits our Kensington Breakaway halter).

Made in the USA


Please note, all breakaways halters will release at different degrees of pressure under different circumstances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Great safety feature. I like to have several extra on hand in case of emergencies.

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!

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.

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 Great Purchase I had looked for these replacement pieces for a while and finally found them at Smartpak! They worked great with 2 different halters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use these to convert a regular halter into a breakaway for safer turnout.

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.
