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 4.460732984293194 out of 5 by 191.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this halter a month ago and it is holding up ok. My only complaint is that I wish it was a heavier gauge of nylon and thicker

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the navy blue. I love the navy blue color to match my horse's fly sheet. It looks great on him and fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Halter I'm like the 10th person in the barn to purchase one of these halters and I'm glad I did! It's sturdy and looks great. Not to mention it's a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality halter, well made. Runs large. Buckles and snaps are of good quality, solid halter. Looks great. Runs large. Overall, good quality for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great every day halter Perfect for turn out. Runs a little big, but still fits.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality I am very happy with the quality of this product. I purchased two since our pony is hard on halters and typically requires frequent replacements. However, the first one has held up so well that we have not yet needed to use our backup. My only issue was that the size was too big. We were able to adjust the fit by punching an extra hole in the leather band.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs large I was disappointed that while my horse usually wears a large in weaver brand and oversized in bridles, this halter is too big and have to adjust on the last holes. Quality is less than weaver. The snap under his cheek is backwards so it faces toward his cheek instead of away so it pokes him. Also unhappy that it snags and collects shavings so my poor guy is wearing his bedding all the time. I needed a halter that he could safely wear 24/7 due to recent haltering issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this halter for our new old pony. It is well made, fits very well and expect it to give us long service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality This halter is very nice, I do wish it fit my horse a little better. I have the crown piece adjusted to fit a shorter head, but then the strap that clips under her throat is just a little too snug. She seems to be between the cob and horse size.
    Date published: 2016-04-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable My horse is in a situation that he has to wear his halter all the time and gets turned out with a large group of horses during the day. My horse being a 4 year old plays all the time and this halter has held up and still looks nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic Halter I needed a halter for everyday use, and chose this one because it offers the breakaway feature, nice colors, and is reasonably priced. I was happy with the overall quality when I received it.
    Date published: 2016-04-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy halter I bought 2 halters to use for turn out. They are very durable. The only thing I don't like is that they are not stiff around the nose making it difficult to get on at times
    Date published: 2016-04-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good halter for a good price I like to keep an extra halter or 2 around the barn, just in case! This is a great product that won't break the bank.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter, weird sizing I tried to love this halter, but it just didn't work for my 16.3 tb gelding. It is very nice quality with soft nylon, but I'm not sure about the sizing. My gelding has the Wellfleet hunter bridle in a regular horse size, and numerous leather and turnout halters in horse size, but this halter was HUGE. Even on the smallest hole the horse size was enormous. The throatlatch strap was dangerously loose, I was afraid he would catch his hoof while grazing. Smartpak is awesome and sent me a cob size, which I really tried to make work, but in the end it just was not fitting. The cob was still pretty big everywhere except the noseband was tight. It is possible that my gelding just doesn't have the right shape head for this, so I'm still giving it 4 stars, and smartpak is the best as usual!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great choice for home halter purchased this halter to hang on the fence gate of paddock for horse at home. just needed something that could be in the weather, but also be breakaway, and adjustable because horses face is funny sized and not break the bank. this halter fit the requirements perfectly. the nylon is soft and doesnt shrink like other halters, color is nice and the adjustability works great for my funny sized thoroughbred head. glad I purchased it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good quality halter Have been using the smart pak break away halter for a few weeks now for stable and turn out use. So far so good. I got it because i needed a new breakaway and i like the leather strap break away style and i know someone who likes the way their smart pal one is holding up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Turnout Halter Bought 2 as gifts and one for my horse. I needed to punch more holes to get a good fit in two of the horses.
    Date published: 2016-01-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking halter I love how this halter looks. It is nicer than a plain nylon halter and the breakaway leather not only looks fancy but has a functional purpose to break if it needs to. I found a matching navy lead in a local tack store and the set looks great! My horse has a large head and the top leather strap is adjustable to fit. Very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, classic and comfy Got this for my Boy when he returned to his winter barn and it fit and looks great on him. It has held up to many hours of halter tag and cleans up easy.

    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.
    Date published: 2015-11-04
    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.
