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 418.
    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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't love The leather strap is very thin. The nylon also rubber the hair off of my horses face (the halter does fit well).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I purchased 1 of these for each of my 2 horses who love to play halter tag while in the pasture for the day . Their old halters became tattered and shredded . So far so good with these. They look sharp and the fit was great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this product! I unfortunately had to exchange it for a smaller size (it was a error on my part not on theirs!) but I was very impressed with the quality of this product and would have one in every color if I could! Just a side note though! The silver colored halter comes with silver hardware not brass which is what I was expecting so I ordered the matching silver lead rope with solid brass clip. It was a bummer to see that they ended up not matching!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Quality I bought this halter a few months ago for my extremely dramatic gelding, who has broken four halters in the span of three months (but they didn't have breakaway crownpeices) so I decided to buy him one of these, in the hopes that if he broke it the leather strap would be easy to replace. But, after two months of owning it, I came to the barn one day to find it laying on my tack box, mangled. Instead of the leather strap breaking, both the clip attatching to the cheek piece and the buckle under the chin had snapped. From what I was told, he had reared when the farrier was trying to do his feet, but instead of what is supposed to break the rest of it did instead. I was extremely disappointed in the quality of this and had expected better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I bought this halter to move my horses from pasture to pasture and wanted breakaway just incase but didn’t want to spend a lot. This halter is very adjustable, I like the color and it doesn’t feel cheap. I feel it fits true to size.
    Date published: 2019-01-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality material I ordered this in pony size for my new yearling. It was not large enough so I’m exchanging it, but must say I was extremely impressed with the quality of the material and workmanship. And wow—the tourquise color was beautiful. I returned the small one and have ordered a larger size.
    Date published: 2018-10-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter for a great price! Beautiful and well made halter at an affordable price! Thankfully we haven't had a horse use the breakaway feature yet, but I have no doubt it will work the way it's suppose to.
    Date published: 2018-10-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice I really like this halter. The color is great (I got the bright blue one). The nylon is nice and soft and feels like good quality. The breakaway leather is supple. The snap is really convenient. I got a cob size for my little TB. The throat is a little snugger on him than I'd prefer, but I don't turn him out in it and I liked the color and quality so much that I kept it anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality manufacturing I've been looking for a safety halter to fit my 4 year old Knabstrupper mare. After getting advise from a SmartPak expert I now have a quality turn-out halter! Thanks SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute halter I got this pony halter in purple for my dark bay weanling Oldenburg . Looks great on her. Only problem I have is that the tongue on the buckle is a little loose and I have to manipulate it sometimes to work it. But I would buy it again anyway.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wore Out In Less Than Two Weeks Honestly unimpressed with the quality of this halter, the material wore out and became fuzzy in less than two weeks and the leather on top curled very quickly. I’ve had the same Weaver leather breakaway on my gelding for two years and never had any wear at all.
    Date published: 2018-10-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome halter Everyone should use a breakaway halter To keep they are horse safe in the cross ties. This is a great one. Comes in good colors and lasts a long time . This is my third one and I love it !
    Date published: 2018-09-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this halter! I've had this for about a year and it's treated me so well! The color stays bright and the hardware is high quality. The breakaway strap is great - haven't broken it yet but I have confidence in it. I never have to worry about my halter being stolen because it's the brightest and reddest one at the barn. My mare stands out with it.
    Date published: 2018-09-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice colors I bought 2 and I really love the colors . The hardware is sturdy and the clip faces in which I prefer. The leather tops are nice quality.
    Date published: 2018-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made halter I like that the halter had rounded edges on the buckles, so no edges rubbing his face. What I don't like are the snap and adjustable chin, personal preference. It's made well. I tape the snap and chin strap. Those snaps can catch on things and trap the horses head, think bucket bales, etc. If you dont mind the snap, go for it. I still give it 5 stars for quality, would buy it again, just tape it again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works for what I needed Bought this a few weeks ago, the hardware seems sturdy enough- it ran large, so we had to punch extra holes in the breakaway strap. The nylon doesn't stay nice and smooth- it got fuzzy fast and collects hay and grass that I have to pull off, which I haven't experienced with a halter before. The web nylon typically stays smooth.
    Date published: 2018-09-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit great and looks great! I bought this for my daughters small horse and the purple color really pops on her dark bay coat. Nice sturdy material.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Halter I bought this halter as a replacement for the one I previously purchased that didn’t last 24 hrs on my horse. I am very pleased with this halter and it looks great on my horse. I own an Arabian gelding and purchased the horse size but it’s a tad big on him but still works well. Very pleased!
    Date published: 2018-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product Suggested by a veteran horse owner after my horse struggle with standing tied. Saw it in action for the first time this weekend and it did it's job. So much cheaper than buying a new halter everytime!
    Date published: 2018-06-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Finally found a halter I like to fit my cob size horse. Some reviewers thought this halter ran large but I don't think so. So far my horse has broken 3 halters that I needed to replace so if he breaks this one at least all i will need to replace is the crown.
    Date published: 2018-06-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I bought this halter for my new OTTB. Many OTTBs that haven't been restarted yet aren't used to being cross tied and may resist, that's where this is perfect. I love this safety feature and am pleased with the overall quality. I was worried about the leather crown being too stiff but it's just right and should be very comfortable. For the price and color range you can't beat it!
    Date published: 2018-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value halter I love this halter! It looks great and helps my horse in critical situations thanks to the breakaway feature. I wouldn’t switch back to a regular nylon halter. It’s also a great price for a good quality product.
