Overview

Why We Love This

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.

Made in the USA.

SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 453.
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.
Date published: 2020-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty! I got the navy halter in the cob size and it’s so pretty. It fits my medium pony on the tightest hook and my small draft cross on the loosest. Both have big heads for their size so I’d say if anything it runs a little large.
Date published: 2020-10-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as heavy duty/sturdy as Big D Nylon is thinner and hardware isn't as sturdy as Big D or Hamilton brand halters (which have brass hardware). Go with one of those if your horse is tough on his halter.
Date published: 2020-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality halter good price Needed a sturdy quality halter that can be destroyed sitting out in the elements. This one looks great in blue on a bay!
Date published: 2020-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter! I’m always searching for the leather crown breakaway halters and this is one of the best. Good colors and durable. I find they run large. Horse size fits my 17hh warmblood. And warmblood size fit my 18+hh horse with a giant head.
Date published: 2020-10-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and very adjustastable This is the second one of these halters I have purchased. They have held up well, allow a custom fit and are well made.
Date published: 2020-09-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Bought the wrong size at first. They told me I did not have to return it. So I donated it. I got the correct size which fit perfect. Costumer service is outstanding!
Date published: 2020-09-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought the size for horse and I probably should of gotten smaller. I added holes to the leather piece and it fit better. The color is nice and the quality is good.
Date published: 2020-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality breakaway halter I bought this halter for a weanling filly that I must leave a halter on. It is well made, and adjustable enough that both the nose piece and the crown can be adjusted enough for a good fit.
Date published: 2020-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size and colors! I bought this for my new mini, who has a rather narrow face. It fits him nicely on the smaller settings. I ordered purple and turquoise. The colors are bright and beautiful, and the quality seems great. Have only been using it for a few weeks, but so far so good! I just wish SmartPak would make some (affordable) mini breakaway halters with fun patterns/designs!
Date published: 2020-08-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sturdy I bought it for my 3 year old QH and had to punch a few holes into it -- not for a smaller-headed horse -- would be good for an average-sized horse.
Date published: 2020-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color and quality perfect We purchased this for my draft cross the full size fit him perfect and i loved all the adjustable features. the red is a perfect red.
Date published: 2020-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I have a small pony 10.2, and he head it too small for a pony halter and too large for a mini. I ordered this one hoping with two side buckets it would fit him and it does.
Date published: 2020-08-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs big Love the colors and quality, but it runs really big on my horses, they wear average horse halters, ordered horse ones, I'll need to punch a few more holes in them to get a proper fit. Shipping was quick, very pleased with quality for the price.
Date published: 2020-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This is a pretty lightweight halter- which is what I was looking for in a breakaway. It is a little large for my 15.3 thoroughbred- he has a more delicate face but still horse size. I set it to the highest hole and it works fine for him a little loose but if he was a puller I’d probably need to punch an extra hole
Date published: 2020-06-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Review - Inconsistent Quality I've been buying theses halters for a while because they are relatively inexpensive and have been pretty durable. I buy a few at a time so I have a backup supply. The last 3 halters I've used have had issues. The silver one lasted the entire winter but the webbing started unraveling almost immediately which was annoying but didn't affect use until it unraveled all the way. The next 2 halters, a purple and navy each lasted less than 2 weeks - both of these due to hardware failure. These halters were bought in 2019 so hopefully some of these issues have been fixed. Before these 3 halters, I had no problems so will probably try again in future. I'm going to try the smartpak cool max halter next!
Date published: 2020-06-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute and durable but rubs face My gelding has worn this halter 24/7 for about a week (the barn I board at requires halters at all times). It has rubbed his cheeks and sides of his face where the hardware sits so there is no hair and will definitely lead to sores if it stays on. I normally love smartpak but this halter has been very disappointing.
Date published: 2020-06-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for the price This halter is a good quality for the price. I bought it to have a back up, but the color is so pretty I decided to use it now. There is a lot of room to adjust it, but I had to trim the noseband area because there was too much extra material. Cob is too small on my horse, but she does have a small nose. But, that's the reason I gave it 4 instead of a 5.
Date published: 2020-06-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! So happy with my new halter it is so easy by adjustable and great quality.
Date published: 2020-06-05
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.
Date published: 2020-06-02
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.
Date published: 2020-05-29
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
Date published: 2020-05-19
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.
Date published: 2020-05-11
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
Date published: 2020-04-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality Nice heavy quality breakaway leather and hardware. Fit my OTTB’s head well.
Date published: 2020-04-14
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.
Date published: 2020-04-09
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
Date published: 2020-03-11
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.
