As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Each halter is handmade by skilled Amish craftsman of the highest quality leather.

Don't forget the matching Padded Leather Lead w/ Chain to complete your horse's look!

Made in the USA.

Please note, this leather halter is not a breakaway halter.

By choosing to add customization to this halter, a nameplate will be attached with your desired text. Havana halters will have a brass nameplate, and Black halters will have a nickel nameplate.

    SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 312.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Halter This halter exceeded my expectations. Not only is it beautiful soft supple leather, it fit my friends horse perfectly straight out of the box with no adjustments. The blue trim is the icing on the cake along with the nameplate. I am absolutely thrilled!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As described This is a quality halter - nice soft leather and good hardware. Price very appropriate for this product.I bought the black/white for my mare, and it is striking. The engraved name plate is also outstanding.Fit was good - but do admit that the rolled chin leather piece is firm and for that reason getting the fit just right is a challenge (seemed to make it too tight during some of my initial adjustments).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Absolutely Love It! I recently ordered this and just received this halter yesterday and I love it! The leather is great quality and the added name plate came out stunning! It also fits my big Quarter Horse's head perfect. Thank you SmartPak for making such a great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it. I bought this several weeks ago, in cob, for a Morgan. It fits beautifully, the padding is soft, the leather is great quality and I would definitely order it again. Eventually, I'd like to get the matching leather lead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Wanted to get my boy a fancy halter as a gift, since I've owned him a year now. Love the teal/black color and padding. He seems to love it too! It slides nicely over all of his hair. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this halter for my mare who recently retired, its a good quality padded halter. The accent color looks great on her! Only downfall is it is a little snug and I would of ordered the next size up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Padded, adjustable and fits well I bought a new horse and hence the need for a halter to fit her. She has a long refined head but narrow especially at the muzzle. This halter adjusts well and fits fine. I was a little disappointed that it didn't smell of good leather as I expected. it is nicely padded. I bought horse size black on black with the silver hardware. It looks good without distracting from her pretty head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Leather and Hardware So happy with this halter. Its soft and supple so no rubs on my horse. Its a great fit and such a beautiful halter to look at! Nothing to dislike

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Soft Padded Halter! I bought this for my 17 h TB because I NEVER can find a halter to fit him! All the halters I get him are just Huge on him & hang down way to low on his face even though I have them on the last hole! They then irritate him & he rubs them off! This one is fully adjustable at the crown & the nose & fits him perfectly! It's top quality leather & soft right out of the box. I'd definitely recommend this halter! He's a Gray so I bought him the black with Teal trim, BEAUTIFUL!! I would however recommend you get the Small nameplate if you order one. I got him the regular size one & it's larger than I'd like but I'll keep it anyway. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've only had this halter for a couple weeks and I love it so much! As soon as I took it out of the packaging it already felt nice and soft. After being on my horse, it has sharpened very nicely to his face structure and has become even more supple!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality halter! I bought this halter to use at shows - it looks great and the leather has a very nice feel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful leather I've now purchased two of these halters. The leather is beautiful and holds its color extremely well. They are supple and the hardware makes them look very professional. Their adjustability is a huge plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely halter I purchased 20 of these halters to present as year end awards for the Indiana Quarter Horse Association. All of the feedback from our members was very positive. They are very nice halters, I wish that I had been lucky enough to to win one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most important: HE likes it Noseband soft as butter, such a difference from the stalwart 10-year-old Dover Saddlery halter it replaced. (No knock on that product; but 10 years of aging in the elements hardens leather). My only complaint, and it's not really a COMPLAINT, is what seems like a lot of extra leather at the throat latch. Certainly doesn't interfere with the product's use. Bottom line: the horse is delighted

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely halter fits my draft cross I received this halter in black/turquoise as a gift for my draft cross, Ted. The "oversize" fits him perfectly. I love the soft, colorful padding. The black leather and stainless steel fittings are high quality. Ted is going to look very handsome at shows this summer!
    Date published: 2017-01-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft and attractive halter I bought this in black and red for black horse. I first bought him a cob because I have a smartpak triple stitch halter in cob size (for another horse) that fits him perfectly, but this cob ran much smaller than the triple stitch cob. No worries, since there are free returns! The leather is very soft and supple, I'm very pleased with the quality of this halter. It looks super sharp on my horse! I ordered the nameplate separately in case sizing didn't work out and because I was worried I'd get a brass nameplate when I wanted a nickel one to match the hardware (as some reviewers mentioned).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this halter! I bought this as a gift for my mom for Christmas and it was everything and more than what I expecting! The leather is soft and supple right out of the box and it fit her horse perfectly! He is on the smaller side and wears 'cob' and it fit as expected. It's nice that the lower part of the halter is adjustable as well so you can get the perfect fit. I ordered the black and Havana color and it's stunning on jax (he's a bay). All and all GREAT buy for the price! I would definitely recommend!
