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'!).

Why We Love This

    SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 237.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Throat strap is small I got this for my Horse and it was way too small in the throat. Other than that its good quatlity.
    Date published: 2017-04-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal For safety reasons, I will not buy a halter without a breakaway strap and this one fits my #1 halter requirement. I like that the brass fixtures have held up well and am extremely pleased with this halter for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter!! I purchased this halter recently, and it is exactly what I needed. I ordered the "horse" size and it was way too big for my quarter horse, so I exchanged it for the "cob", which fits just fine. Good quality for the money!
    Date published: 2017-04-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cobb size almost perfect This Cobb Breakaway Halter fits a bit large on my Arabian, but it does fit. Good quality and the blue is a nice color
    Date published: 2017-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking sturdy halter! I bought one of these halters for my horse to go to shows in, looked great and the color fit our barn perfectly so bought 5 more for our show horses, now they all look great and match!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good turn out halter My horses are hard on halters. The nylon could be a bit stronger but otherwise is a good turn out halter.
    Date published: 2017-02-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Royal Blue! I think this halter is good, but not great. Pros: looks really nice, flexible/soft nylon, replaceable safety breakaway crown piece, seems pretty well made. Cons: a little tricky to get on because it is so flexible (I'm used to leather halters), it is causing rubs on my horse already (only been using it a few weeks).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice breakaway halter This is a nice halter. I love the color. It is a little light weight for my taste. I would prefer a heftier nylon.
    Date published: 2017-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter Looks great, I'd definitely order this again in different colors!
    Date published: 2017-02-10
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter I bought this halter for my new OTTB. The navy color looks great on her and the quality of this halter is good. The leather piece is thick. I ordered 'horse' size and I am at the top hole on both sides, and the top hole on the noseband. It is still big, but will do for grooming.
    Date published: 2017-02-05
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nylon is Flimsy The halter itself is fine, however the nylon is very flimsy, which makes it harder to put on.
    Date published: 2017-02-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality you can count on. These halters wear well and some of the best made in the category of 'breakaway' halters.
    Date published: 2017-01-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Halter! I've bought a couple of these for horses who are not great in cross ties and they've done exactly what they're meant to do, i.e. break at the crownpiece if something happens. The halter does run a tiny bit big in my opinion, a horse size has been pretty loose on two normal sized horse heads. So if your horse's head is on the smaller size, I would definitely go with a cob. Overall great product and what I've come to expect from Smartpak products!
    Date published: 2017-01-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only safe way to tie a horse! I use these breakaway halters on all of my horses, because they are frequently tied overnight while camping during NATRC (North American Trail Ride Conference) competitions. My newest QH has a very petite little head, and this cob size fits her very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily adjustable Bought for all 3 of my horses....Cob/horse/warmblood. All Sizes fit as described!
    Date published: 2016-12-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kind of thin. Will use as a backup Bought this as a replacement for the halter that goes out with my horse then hangs by the fence. Not sure that is a good role for this one. Seems thin and flimsy. I'll use as a spare in my trailer instead.
    Date published: 2016-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! I bought this halter a month ago, and so far it has withstood bad weather and 'halter-tag' very successfully!
    Date published: 2016-12-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Have a Percheron paint cross and was worried about finding a breakaway halter to fit him. The warmblood size was perfect! Also the halter is soft and supple, unlike most draft horse halters!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected Nice enough product however I was expecting something sturdier and better made.
    Date published: 2016-12-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for big horses Finn loves his new halter! Even though he's not even 2 years old yet- he is 17 hands and has a huge head and face. But not uncommon for a Clydesdale! Fits him great and he looks handsome!
    Date published: 2016-11-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this halter a month ago and it's holding up very nicely. The leather crown is soft and dirt brushes off easily.
    Date published: 2016-11-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Great product for the price! And my lovely mare already tested out the breakaway feature. It works. I love the green color. I'll probably buy more.
    Date published: 2016-11-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price Super Good Construction I love the breakaway halter I got for my 4 1/2 year old gelding. It is very well constructed. My horse has a beautiful slender face and I wasn't sure which size would work for him, so the rep. recommended I get both sizes and they included a return mailing label for the one that was the wrong size. I will say they run large and I though the smaller size was going to be to big for him, but it worked fine on the tightest holes. He looks great in it and if I ever need to get another halter I would not hesitate to order this one again.
    Date published: 2016-11-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! Was looking for a basic breakaway halter for my horse and this is exactly it! It does run big so I ordered a cob size for my 16.2h TB and it's adjusted to the 2nd hole from the top on both sides of the leather piece.
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classically smart halter I bought this everyday halter as a nice streamlined safe way to keep my mares leather halter in good condition. Its good-looking, she wears it for turnout, the leather is soft and strong, the brass buckles are sturdy. I actually bought 2 incase one gets muddy and I have to wash it :=}
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, a well-made utility halter. Fits well, leather crown is of sturdy weight, fittings are good quality for the price.
    Date published: 2016-10-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well Bought this for my mare who has to wear a blanket bib when stalled. I like the breakaway crown and the halter is roomy enough to add plenty of halter fleece.
    Date published: 2016-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability and quality This halter has a heavy quality feel . It is fit to size our horse is not hard to fit but this halter also fits our friends QH. The break away leather portion feels durable. The price makes this halter afordable but is high quality and it has done well in the weather. The color has not faded.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too bih One size does not fit all. Why not offer cob, horse and oversize versions?
