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. Many horse owners choose halters like this one with a breakaway feature because of the peace of mind they can provide while the horse is on cross-ties, in a trailer, or in turnout.

Made in the USA.

Please note, all breakaway halters will release at different degrees of pressure under different circumstances.

    SmartPak Breakaway Halter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 413.

    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.

    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 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 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!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs Large Purchased for gelding that wears an average in Weaver adjustable breakaway. The nylon is half the thickness of a Weaver halter which allows this halter to droop across the nose and is not the easiest to put on because of the thin/softness. Runs large - when the chin is adjusted to the smallest it can go I could fit a tennis ball between it and the chin. This due in part to the halter hanging too low , I will need to add holes to the breakaway piece so the halter can be adjusted up a few inches. Halter has no label on it to identify size, just the packaging tag. Will probably use on another horse with a much larger head and purchase a Weaver for this horse. Hardware looks okay but would like heavier nylon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Practical Absolutely love this halter! I bought the navy horse size for a 16.2 OTTB with a finer head. The horse size is definitely big, I had to put the crown piece all the way to the top of both holes, but it fit perfectly after that. Super adjustable, looks really nice, and it's super light. The nylon pieces aren't bulky. Oh, and it WORKS! My lovely boy got his halter stuck on a hook in the barn aisle, he popped the leather crown piece with only one good pull. Had it taken longer to break I know he would have hurt himself. Will be buying multiple replacement pieces! This is a SAFE and beautiful halter for every day, and nice enough to use at the shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the looks of it I love this halter. I bought on for all 3 of my horses.
    Date published: 2019-08-31
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice halter, cheap clip I would have given this halter 4 stars if the throat was rolled and 5 stars if the throat clip’s spring worked without manual assistance.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it... I loved the color of this halter, and even though the noseband on the cob was a little big, I liked it a lot. Solid, nice looking breakaway. However I bought it at the end of March and the pretty raspberry color has completely bleached out! The halter lives in a shed row barn under a 12 foot overhang, so it doesn't spend all day on a horse in the sun. The matching lead rope's snap has already frozen shut even though it hardly ever gets wet. For this price I expected a little more use out of a set. Still looking for an affordable breakaway that lasts longer than a few months of light use!
    Date published: 2019-08-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large Horse sized much bigger than expected. I have a 17.1h warmblood cross. He always fits into horse sized head gear. This halter just barely works. All buckles are on the smallest holes. Of course it's easy to punch more holes in the leather piece, I was just surprised. Quality is fine for a halter to use around the barn and such, but it's nothing fancy. Works well for leading to turnout, etc.
    Date published: 2019-08-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little big but nicely made I bought the "cob" size halter for our rescue yearling thoroughbred stallion...he's a big boy, but the halter was absolutely huge on him. Fortunately it fit our other foster, a 19-year-old QH mare, just fine. The color is vibrant and the halter is well made, just mighty big for what we would have expected. He wears a cob sized fly mask so I made the assumption that the sizing would be similar, but I assumed incorrectly! He'll grow into it eventually I'm sure...
    Date published: 2019-08-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color I have been using this halter for a month; its holding up well and I love the royal blue color. The clip closure has a lighter feel however it’s working well and holding up. Good value for the price.
    Date published: 2019-07-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality We buy these halters for all our school horses and they hold up extremely well for daily use and turnout.
    Date published: 2019-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great halter! Super quality and great fit. Runs a bit large. I bought this for an average Quarter Horse. It had enough adjustment to fit handsomely, but ended up on the last holes. But it fits beautifully at that number!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I’m so happy that I bought them my horses and people who ride at my barn love them too they are brake away btw

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Little Old Mare This is the third SP breakaway halter I have had. I bought this particular one for a little mare who just turned 31 and has no one to take care of her. I thought this pretty blue halter would lift her spirits and it did! She is just stunning and loves it! I really like these halters generally and favor them over other breakaways on the market. They really wear exceptionally well and are good looking.
    Date published: 2019-07-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter, pretty color! Great halter, loved the pink color. It was brighter than pictured which I'm 100% fine with. Great sturdy hardware, doesn't feel cheap, and has not "bled" or turned my horse pink!
    Date published: 2019-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly a safe breakaway halter The bad news, my mare broke it on the first use. The good news, she broke it after spooking in the cross ties and sitting down. Plus she was not injured. I bought this because my mare is a bit buddy sour and will sit down in the cross ties when she's spooked. Well on the first use she spooked after the neighbors truck backfired. The halter instantly broke and my mare appeared fine although a bit nervous. I will 100% be purchasing a replacement piece for this halter and continuing to use them for my horses.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubs and too flimsy I bought this about a month ago, and I was hoping for it to be everything that I wanted: sturdy and comfortable for my horse. But, it was way lighrer and flimsier than I thought, and the leather was so rough that it rubbed my hrose behind her ears.
