Overview

Why We Love This

The SmartPak Breakaway Halter is one smart barn staple! It features a leather crown piece designed to break under undue pressure. This leather crown piece is adjustable, along with the chin strap, giving you the ability to create a great fit for your horse. Plus, this halter also offers a heavy nylon webbed noseband and cheek pieces that are durable and available in a variety of colors to suit your personal taste. Additionally, brass plated hardware offers a classic look (silver option will come with silver plated hardware). Finally, the snap closure on the throat latch makes it easy to take it on and off without having to adjust the crown piece every time.

Made in the USA.

Please note, breakaway halters will release at different degrees of pressure under different circumstances. As a safety precaution, please inspect product before use and do not leave on horse unattended.

SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 451.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a basic break away halter. Nothing fancy but serves it’s purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are new owners of our rescue minis. Trying to navigate all the gear for our minis and find sizes that are specific for minis. Over the moon excited for our new halters and the journey ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this halter! I have searched high and low for a halter for my little miniature guy! This looks and feels great on him!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not holding up This has been my go to halter for my horse for years, so when I leased a mare this year I immediately ordered her one as well. I got the hot pink and regretted that deeply within 2 months it was faded to almost white. We are now at 6 months of use and the throat snap broke. This is on an incredible sedate laid back pregnant 17 year old mare. I feel like the quality is not what I have seen on the previous several I have bought which were navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value This is for a new horse but have several of these halters and they hold up well. Like breakaway feature
Date published: 2021-09-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kinda Disappointed The color is great, the material is soft, the hardware looks good...but, it is very big and not great. My Appendix mare has a big head, for example- horse sized fly masks are too small, and this horse size halter is big everywhere. Almost on smallest crown hole and the nose is buckled to the point the extra length flops around. The material is soft, but as someone else said, it is droopy. Just not thrilled, but for the price and the fact that it is break away, I did keep it.
Date published: 2021-08-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter This halter is better than I expected. It fits well and doesn’t rub. I use it 24/7 with a grazing muzzle. It is made in USA and quite inexpensive. A great but!
Date published: 2021-08-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faded immediately Bought in early May and hoped it wouldn’t fade as quickly as the less quality one I was replacing due to fading. This one ended up fading almost immediately. I’m replacing it now after 2 months because it’s too faded. She doesn’t wear it during turnout either. The halter itself is decent quality except for the fading. The adjustable strap by the chin was too big for my mare but a hair tie helped keep it from flapping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit well Like the fit. Have a small Arab w big jowls. Hard to fit.
Date published: 2021-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Color and Great Quality! I bought this halter as I was having to medicate my mare multiple times a day and it was easiest to leave a halter on her but I wanted a break away option. Upon arrival I was overjoyed and impressed with the vibrant color (purple) and great quality of the halter, especially given the great price point. I would definitely purchase again.
Date published: 2021-06-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from To small Was to small in the throat latch. Fit in head but throat latch about 3 inches to shorts
Date published: 2021-06-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed ... First SmartPak product that I am unhappy with. Nylon is too soft and the halter droops and is quite difficult to put on. This one is going to my “wish I had not wasted my money” box and used only when I have nothing else.
Date published: 2021-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breakaway Halters Great price and just what I needed. Super staff too
Date published: 2021-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Everyday Halter I have been using the SmartPak Breakaway Halters for as long as I can remember. I love the different colors they come in, so each horse I have had gets to wear their own color every day. My current mare looks great in burgundy, and I am currently on my second SmartPak Breakaway Halter for her. She wears this every day, all day in turnout, rain or shine. I only recently replaced the one I had for over a year because the breakaway piece ripped (as it should have done given the situation my mare was in!) and I thought she deserved a new one in the same color of course. Phoebe is always horse size in halters and bridles, and so she wears horse size in this too. Over time, the breakaway leather part can stretch, but since it has adjustment holes on each size, even after it stretches out, it's not too big. I always recommend this as my go-to, everyday halter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute Real nice halter, super soft. Love the break away strap. Fits my mini horse just perfect. Would buy again and recommend to others.
Date published: 2021-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Color, Sturdy Hardware I bought this as a spare as my horse has a tendency to nibble her breakaway straps. It's a really pretty color (will look terrific on my palomino) and the clip looks like it will hold up well. Very happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2021-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice daily halter I bought this to replace my sun damaged halter. It looks and fits great. The only thing is that the staff seem to place the halter within mouth-reach of my horse so the leather crown piece won't last long.
Date published: 2021-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my girl perfectly I put the halter on as soon as I received it. I love these breakaway halters. I got it in pink (my fav color). My horse is a QH/Arab cross with a petite head. I was a little nervous about getting it because I was thinking it would be too big. But it fits her like a glove. I will be ordering more.
Date published: 2021-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter for the price. Tried the Cob size first for my 15 hand Quarter Horse. It was a bit small. As always, Smart Pak was wonderful to work with- returning and replacing to horse-size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color Due to past experience, I always use a breakaway halter. This is one of the I ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I love the color and how durable it is! Perfect turnout halter to go over my boy’s fly mask.
Date published: 2021-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality I bought this to use with a muzzle during my mare’s turnout. Happy with the quality, breakaway adjusts on both side. Nice!
Date published: 2020-12-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome quality! Bought this as a turnout halter but was surprised at the quality! Heavy duty hardware, nice leather crown (not cardboard or thin at all), bright color. Also bought a matching lead and they are exactly the same. Cob fit my fine boned TB, and he generally wears a cob everything. Highly recommend!
Date published: 2020-12-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality This is the second one I've bought. The first one last several years!
Date published: 2020-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up and lasts I've had this same halter for 3 years now- the hardware has rusted, but everything still latches properly and nothing has frozen shut. It's been used for turnout, trailering, I've thrown the fabric part in the washing machine multiple times, and it hangs outside while my horse is turned out, so I'm thoroughly impressed by its durability. It's definitely faded (to be expected) but the burgundy color is still pleasant enough. I ordered the horse size for my extremely average appaloosa gelding, and I did have to punch new holes in the crown to get it to fit properly, but that wasn't a big deal. He's not one to break his halters so I haven't had to replace the leather, and I only clean it about once every 6 months, if that.
Date published: 2020-11-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I bought this halter because my horse was living outside for awhile and I did not want his leather halter to be outside in bad weather. This halter is good quality for the price.
