And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    SmartPak Double Stitch Halter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 456.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter! Beautiful halter! As I'm sure some of the other reviews mention, the pictures do not do this product justice. I was so surprised when it arrived! The leather is so much richer and higher quality than I expected. There's really no reason to spend the extra money on the triple stitched halter, this one is gorgeous enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful quality! This was the first leather halter I've ever purchased for a horse. Not wanting to spend too much I purchased this while Smartpak was having a sale. I was very happy with the product. I got it and spent a day oiling it and it came out looking great. The quality is good enough for the barn and for a show. I definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Funny color and oily residue. Just received two of these halters to replace two show halters at the last minute that were lost. They arrived very oily like they had just been oiled and the color was an odd burgundy. Saddle soaped them a couple of times to try and remove some of the oil but it still stained my grey pony with a red/pink residue. We had to wash his face quite often at the show. Also, the horse size runs a bit small in the crown piece. So not very thrilled. Will be using these for turnout now and will order the nicer Walsh halters for show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality! I have bought many halters throughout the years. This is the BEST quality halter for the price. I would definitely buy it again and recommend it to anyone. The leather is super soft and high quality. Great job Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Nice soft leather halter. Still looks good after being used everyday. I keep mine own during hose downs I just make sure to condition it often. Average horse size is a bit big so if you have a horse with a petite head you might to go smaller.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Halter! This is my second Double Stitched Stable Halter through Smartpak. My first cob sized halter is still going strong but I ordered another in the horse size for a new lesson horse. Unfortunately the owner backed out of letting the horse join our schooling horses. This is such a nice halter I plan on just keeping it on hand for when our next lesson horse does enter the barn. I had it customized so I will only need to change the name plate. Smartpak is amazing and if I had wanted to return the halter I could have returned it was ease. Thank you Smartpak for your amazing products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and classy! My gelding is a jerk. No, really...he is! He tries to destroy nice things on purpose. Fortunately, he has yet to ruin this halter and he has been wearing it for over a year now! He lives outside 24/7 and the halter lives on a hook outside of his gate. It's been exposed to the elements (heat, rain, snow, etc) and the leather is still soft and supple. I think I've cleaned it once or twice since I've owned it, and the only reason you can tell it's not brand new is there is a loose thread on the cheek piece that is a whopping 1/4" long. It's a perfect daily halter but it would also make a great show halter as well. Get the brass nameplate so people don't claim your halter as their own!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply pretty! I love simple halters, no fuss and easy snap on and snap off. Adjusted easily behind the ears for beautiful fit on our Cob sized Appy! Thank you :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will purchase again! I orginally purchased this halter for engagement pictures! It came in fast and was perfect for photos and everyday barn use. I was very glad I looked through the reviews before purchasing. The halter does run a little large. I have a small framed quarter horse and the cob size fit him perfectly! The matching lead is great too! Will purchase again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter, Runs Large Beautiful halter, however a bit on the large side. It's tricky with a Saddlebred because my one mare (the one this halter is for) typically wears horse sizes, and my other mare typically wears Arab/Cob sizes. My larger mare definitely still could have worn a Cob in this bridle. The horse size required 2 additional holes in the crown and 3 additional holes in the nose. Fits beautifully now and looks great. I anticipate that this will hold up well. For reference, my "larger" Saddlebred mare is 15.1 and has a slender but slightly longer head.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely Lovely halter but sadly the chin strap was destroyed in three days by pasture mates. I booby-rigged it with some baling twine and it's been intact since. I wish the chin piece was a bit more durable but probably perfectly fine for "lighter" use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice halter - not sure how long it will last. Halter was very soft right out of the package, and hardware seems nice. Only complaint is the leather keepers on the underside of the noseband - the first day my horse wore the halter both became overly streached and looks a bit strange. Have used it for a few days, will see how long it holds up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly nice and fits my little donkey! I bought one of these in the small/med pony in the hopes it would fit my donkeys, as they need leather halters for shipping. Even though it was relatively inexpensive, it is really lovely quality, rich leather with real brass fittings. Looks great on my old furry guy and I have already ordered more for the other horses and the other donkey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Good Feel! Bought it 2 weeks ago for my lipizzan who has a smallish head (cob size) and wanted something soft and pleasant to hold every day, and I got it!! it fits well, it is nice soft leather, the color brown is nice, in short, I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible quality! I have a small horse and I hadn't yet found a halter that wasn't too big or too small- until this one! I really love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Halter I have multiple horses and own a boarding facility. All of my horses wear these halters and I ask all my clients to purchase them. They are affordable and very nice quality. They hold up well being on horses for hours outside and in all types of weather, but still break if a horse gets caught on something. Highly recommend.
    Date published: 2016-03-13
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was good at first but then... Not for grey or light colored horses. I had it for my chestnut and I liked the halter but when I bought one for my grey horse I noticed a reddish pink color started forming on his nose that was not there before. Then when I went to a show and it begain to rain, everything the halter touched it turned pink. Including my horses nose and cheeks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely halter I bought this halter so that my mare could have a nicer one for hauling and wearing at shows. I didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money, and it was on sale so I went for it. The leather was soft and supple upon arrival. My mare's head is quite large and usually hard to fit, but the horse size ended up fitting very nicely. Love the havana color. The nameplate turned out wonderful, I got her registered name on one line and her barn name on the other in the Victoria script, and it looks so lovely! The hardware was clean and the latch very easy to clip. Super happy with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, soft halter! This leather halter was soft right out of the box. I got it with a nameplate, and it was perfect. I debated getting the more expensive padded halter, but this one was much cheaper and still very nice quality. I don't regret buying this one! I bought the cob size and it fit pretty true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful stable halter for the price. My horse is a 17.1+ hh TB. He is usually toward the top hole on oversized bridles and halters, so after reading the descriptions about how this halter ran very large I bought the horse sized halter. As soon as it arrived I knew it was too small. It fit him, just barely, on the last hole of both the head stall and noseband. Thankfully it was a Smartpak buy so I put it back into its box and returned it the next day. The oversized halter that they sent in return fits him just as an oversized should. Yes, he's on the top hole and when it stretches I'll eventually have to punch more holes, but that's a normal fit for him. The leather is great, a tiny bit stiff to start but clearly quality enough that it will break in easily. As always - very nice to buy from Smartpak and have an easy return/exchange service so I don't ever have to worry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter! I received this halter as a gift about a month ago and I love it! The color, fit, leather quality, functionality, and durability...an all around great halter. The personalized name plate adds just the right finishing touch! My sister has this halter for her mare as well and loves it. I will definitely be ordering one for the rest of the horses in my barn!
