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'!).

    SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.4663 out of 5 by 163.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy halter, but odd fit Nice halter, but the throatlatch piece fits very tight and there is no good way to adjust it. Am using with a grazing muzzle, so fit flexibility is key.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter! Looks fantastic on him and great quality! I got the black in horse size which fits perfectly on his big head, so I guess I would say it runs a bit big. Love it though!
    Date published: 2015-11-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality / Runs Big Great Quality compared other brands same style breakaway halter. Only concern warm blood size runs big, which is easier to adjust, than if too small !
    Date published: 2015-10-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Great for a pasture halter. My horse has destroyed 2 all leather halters now so I needed a more durable product but with the safety of the leather break away piece. So far so good.
    Date published: 2015-10-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Everyday Fits a variety of horses with the adjustable nose. Clean and simple. Downside is that the navy nylon faded really quickly in the sun. Would buy again for young horses though, just don't leave outside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter for the price Bought it as a replacement for a leather halter. Did not know if I would like going from the leather to this halter. It is great. Sturdy and easy to get on and off. Very adjustable so I am able to get a perfect fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value I got a Horse and Cob size as backup halters in our trailer for guest horses in case of an incident. Seem white well made. Perfect simple breakaway
    Date published: 2015-10-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs large I bought this halter for my warmblood who is between cob and horse size, so I ordered the horse size. The halter was nice but ran extremely large, more appropriate for warmblood or oversized.
    Date published: 2015-09-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality hardware. Very well made! I wanted a few cheap breakaway halters in my barn for turn out. We had a rainy spring and I didn't want to ruin my nice leather halters. I was SO impressed with the quality for the price!
    Date published: 2015-09-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DURABLE!!!!! This halter is very pretty out of the box!! Ran a little large though. I love the breakaway feature. I keeps pease of mind when my horse and her friends are playing halter tag in the feild. Great product and it still looks new with a little hose off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Buy I haven't had the halter for long, so I can't speak to the durability. However it's a great buy; it's soft and adjustable. Would definitely buy it again.
    Date published: 2015-09-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price, easy snap to open I like these halters very much- good for bringing horses in and out and sturdy enough for trailering and cross ties while knowing they will break if a problem. They do run large and seem to stretch over time.
    Date published: 2015-08-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, yet sturdy Love this halter. Soft enough not to run my horse's face but sturdy enough it doesn't break.
    Date published: 2015-08-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good every day Halter I've had this for 6weeks and it has held up well. Lacks some of the quality I've seen in other brands of breakaway halters.
    Date published: 2015-07-17
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fit well, but failed within a week This halter seemed a bit cheap in its construction, but fit my horse well and I like the adjustable chin so I considered it worth the price. Until the metal hardware on the side of the face above the chinstrap broke within a week of normal turnout use. This horse is not a wild child and has never broken a halter before. At least the leather breakaway strap was salvageable...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but big I bought this for my Arabian mare in a cob size. It almost fell off her nose. Thankfully it fit a friend's horse (thoroughbred). Nicely made.
    Date published: 2015-07-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter! I bought this for use during turn out (my new barn will only turn out with halters on) and am very pleased. It's well made but is light enough that I don't worry about it wearing (or weighing) on my mare's face. Great quality, great value! I'm very pleased!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointing skimpy and insubstantial. i don't like the clasp either. it will serve as a "backup" halter for times i clean the other. i will say that my Bay looks great in the beautiful blue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Everyday Use This is a great halter for everyday use around the barn. The only complaint I have is the size. Warmblood is ENORMOUS! I have a 17.2 hand Warmblood with the longest face I've ever seen and its huge on him.
    Date published: 2015-06-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breakaway Halter! Happy to have found these - economical and safe if you have to leave them up. They have held up well so far! Well made, a few colors offered, can repair easily if broken.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good turn out halter Bought this halter for turn out and like it.Leather on top of halter is breakable in case of the horse getting caught on something.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I purchased two of the break away halters for my Quarter Horses about two months ago. The hardware is well constructed and I ordered both in horse size and the size fits well The only drawback is the material on the noseband started to frey after one month but other than that the halterrs are a good purchase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I purchased this halter for my warmblood. Her head is usually to large for regular horse size and to small for warmblood sizing. This halter was perfect. Very adjustable and was able to fit it perfectly. Would consider it to run a shade on the big size , but was just what I was looking for...
    Date published: 2015-06-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but too big! This is a nice halter but unfortunately it is going back. I have one horse who usually wears a horse size halter and one who wears a cob size. This halter in the cob size was much too big for either horses. It would work if I punched more holes in the leather but why waste the time when I can find something else. Overall, its a nice looking halter and seems to be well made but will probably only work on much bigger heads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this halter! I bought this halter for my horse and I love it!! The navy color looks great on my chestnut mare. I get complements on this halter all the time. I think that the quality of the halter is great and it still looks really new.
    Date published: 2015-05-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality!! I bought this product about a month ago. my horse is very hard on his haters so I wanted something that wasn't too expensive but would also hold up well. this halter did just that! I love to look of it as well, it was an overall great purchase and a quality halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Leather is soft and supple. Happy with this product.
