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.

SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 433.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An attractive, safe halter I use these halters because they have a generous fit, lots of adjustability, and they are safe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will do for an emergency halter Quality is garbage, like so many SP branded products. If you want a cheap halter to have on hand this is fine. For everyday use, spend a few dollars more; this will fall apart in your hands. Plenty of adjustability which is nice except if you adjust the leather it crumbles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Pony sized tack is usually hard to find & selections are limited. I appreciate being able to find these items at a reasonable price through your company. This halter is very well made, fits comfortably & is very attractive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I bought this a little over a year ago. It has been thoroughly abused since then by myself with two thoroughbreds and works great. I use it around the barn, out on endurance trails, and to/from fox hunts. Without giving it a whole lot of love it still looks fantastic. I have had a horse pull back on it, and I mean really sit back, without it breaking... meant to be a breakaway and that is my only concern but there was no harm done so I'm really not bothered by it. Color has not faded at all and I haven't touched the leather and it is still feeling and looking nice. Excellent quality for a great price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, poor performance Used one day and leather broke and clip no longer functions. Horse barely pulled back and it broke. The clip is cheaply made.
Date published: 2020-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I use this halter for all of my horses daily activities. I love that it is easily adjusted to fit most of the horses in our 41 horse program.
Date published: 2020-04-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome everyday halter! If you are looking for a Great every day altar for use around the barn, one that you don’t mind leaving outside hanging on the fence. This is it! It stands up to wear and tear and even better it’s breakaway. So if your horse occasionally does something silly like mine does, only the crownpiece will break

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Nice heavy quality breakaway leather and hardware. Fit my OTTB’s head well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter! We’ve had this a month or so. Love the breakaway feature. Beautiful sky blue color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solved a difficult problem I was having a great deal of trouble catching my horse. I'm keeping the break-away halter on him all the time - and feeling safe about it. Now I simple walk up to the horse put the lead rope on and were all set. This halter solved a really bad problem

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good halter; bad crown piece This halter is nice and fits our cob sized pony well. Unfortunately the crown piece is leaving orange dye on our gray pony's head so I am searching for an alternative crown piece (thus the star deduction). I tried the padded crown piece but it is too long for our pony on the highest holes so the search continues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did its job—but not perfect. I only bought this halter a few weeks ago, but it's already done for. In a very scary trailering incident, my horse went down in the trailer. Luckily, this halter did exactly what it was supposed to do—it broke; the leather strap split right in two—and my horse was able to recover, get back up, and thankfully ended up with nothing more serious than a few scrapes and bruises. However, while the leather strap could easily be replaced, the throatlatch snap also broke, so it's not really usable anymore. A couple of additional notes on the halter before it broke: After reading that this halter runs slightly large, I ordered a cob size for my fine-boned, dainty-faced warmblood mare, and it fit pretty well. I did have one complaint about the nylon material...the bottom of the noseband (under her chin) got immediately and extremely fuzzy from normal use (hay-eating, turnout, etc). I've never had a nylon halter that got fuzzy like this, especially so quickly, in a matter of days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Haler for a mini I have a mini that is difficult to fit in a halter.... This the first halter that really fits him. He is a little rescue Palomino.
Date published: 2020-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good construction. Solid halter that fits my mare with a large head very well. Clasp makes it easy to get on and off.
Date published: 2020-02-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect turnout halter I have multiple of these. They are great for turnout because they are breakaway. The nylon part of the halter is pretty thick and retains its shape unlike some other halters that are flimsy. The leather crown is thin but not enough that I’d worry about it falling apart.
Date published: 2020-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality great price I got one of these for my 2 year old Welsh pony and it’s a great halter. Well made, not too bulky in the pony size. Nice quality. Two thumbs up.
Date published: 2020-01-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits well I bought this to use with a grazing muzzle on my mare. She’s a Morgan and has a complicated (but very pretty) head- small muzzle/nose, deeper in the throatlatch. I was concerned about the fit of this halter after reading other reviews. She wears an ‘average horse’ in most brands, as long as the chin is adjustable, but I went with a cob size halter when I ordered. It fits great! It seemed small/ short in the crownpiece initially, but as she’s worn the halter, it has broken in and is now on the middle holes on the crown. I like the adjustable chin and variety of colors. Seems like a quality halter for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed!! I bought these a week ago, and they came in pretty quickly. I just don't feel like they are worth the money. The same exact looking boot without the BOT technology is sold somewhere else. The straps don't really fit my horse's legs correctly, and the scratch really easily. I am disappointed, and I wouldn't recommend them becasue they aren't worth the price, and I didn't notice a difference with the weltex technology.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wimpy Thought it would be sturdier. Very cheaply made. Thin material. Would not recommend unless it were about half the price I paid for it.
Date published: 2020-01-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Insubstantial The halter was flimsy and the quality appeared just fair. It was not what I expected from SmartPak and I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice halter/ wrong color Great product. Good quality. Received royal blue instead of the turquoise that I ordered though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large My mare is an average size and this runs large. Also, the adjustable chin piece could use work, some of the holes are misshapen and it’s hard to adjust. Overall, a fine halter for at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break a way halter Perfect halter , exactly what I wanted would definitely recommend this halter
Date published: 2019-11-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, break away strap broke I bought this in July, and loved the color and the concept, but a month ago the break away leather strap split and broke! My horse can be rough on things and found it on the ground. Would not use a leather breakaway strap with a nylon halter again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable I bought a cob size for my Morgan and looks so good! thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them These halters are very well made. Plus when I needed a different size for my mare, SmartPak made it so easy for the exchange. When needed again will order more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great! Love this halter for my mini horse. Fits her perfectly and is very easy to adjust!
Date published: 2019-10-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color, runs a bit large My guy usually wears horse-sized halters/bridles. I ordered the horse size, and it almost fits with all the buckles on the smallest holes, but it is a little bit big. I wish I'd gone with the cob size, but for the price I just decided to keep it. I do wish the nose piece had a keeper, as the strap is very long when buckled on the smallest hole. I got it in turquoise, and the color is great!
