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

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected Nice enough product however I was expecting something sturdier and better made.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :=}

    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.

    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.

    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 5 out of 5 by from nice breakaway halter I bought two of these for my 'boys.' They fit well and are smart looking. (no smart pak pun intended) I had previously purchased the nylon web with knotted nose, which I also liked. These have a nice smooth webbing and it turned out I needed the breakaway feature. I followed the fitting tips from other buyers and they fit fine. My 'regular headed' Saddlebred wears the cob and my long headed one wears the regular.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good products with reasonable prices! The break-away halter is a "must" for my operations. The halter I purchased from Smart Pak is of excellent quality for the price.
    Date published: 2016-09-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent These are decent quality for the price. The nylon parts are very soft and comfortable. The biggest flaw is the hinge area of the clip closure has this little area that seems to just attract mud. Then you can't get the clip open to take the halter off without either digging the mud/dirt out or hosing the whole thing off. It's frustrating enough that I'm not sure I would buy these again. But if you aren't using them for turnout that isn't a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable halter I use these on all my horses and have my boarders also purchase these halters for safety and ease of use. Straps adjust and buckles make clipping halter quick and easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bout this about a month ago and it fits my dainty ottb well in a cob. Love the green color!
    Date published: 2016-09-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Halter I really like the quality of this halter, but it does run very big. The horse size was way too big for my horse, so I returned and exchanged for a COB, the exchange went very smooth and very happy with this product and the service
    Date published: 2016-09-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Halter I didn't read the reviews before I jumped on this and ordered a horse size, received it and it was extremely big on my horse, however, the return is so simple, I boxed it up, filled out the paperwork, attached the label and took it to the UPS store and exchanged for the COB size, which fits perfectly. Appears to be great quality too. No hassle returns.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! But oversized means *oversized*! This halter is high quality! But man, when they say "oversize," they're not kidding! My massive Oldenburgs were seriously swimming in these bad boys!! Had to exchange them for normal horse size for my big-headed warmbloods.
    Date published: 2016-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and pretty The horse size fit my chunky-headed Haflinger perfectly! Love the color, and the leather breakaway is just what I needed for him out in his field with a grazing muzzle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong yet soft Alive had other breakaway halters hat broke too easily and became stiff with turnout use. This one is still flexible and soft for the horse, and the leather part is strong enough to not break unless it has to. Fits great too.
