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'!).

    SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 281.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Soft Fresh out of the box, this halter represents good quality leather and soft squishable padding - comparable in quality to my old high quality branded halter. I have not used it long enough to comment on durability, but very happy about this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted Great halter with a great price. I love leather halters. It adjusts easy and maintains its shape so you don't need to struggle with it to put it on. I loved it so much that I purchased another one for my other horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful leather halter with style Love, love, love this halter. I purchased this because I wanted a pretty halter with style, and this one has it. The leather is super soft, and the color accents are a really nice touch. I chose the black and teal one for my boy, and he looks so handsome in it.the quality is really good, and love the silver hardware rather than the brass. Great choice Smartpak!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful! Ordered the black and turquoise, and it is sharp looking! I got my horses name engraved on it as well, and it looks beautiful. I wish I had selected a different font as it isn't as dark as I would have hoped (it can be hard to see depending on the lighting), but the quality is certainly great. My guy normally wears horse-sized products, and the horse size fits him very well. Very happy with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Him Great Thunder has two halters in case one breaks. Well his old one of 3 yrs broke and I ordered this one. It fits him well. The blue color is more like a periwinkle, but he looks great in it. The name plate is great and uses Chicago screws so I can remove it if I need to (for cleaning the brass plate). His students love picking between his Hunter Green Padded Halter and this Blue one. Thanks Smart Pak! https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14600866_554382308092975_7211690887071348792_n.jpg?oh=98e99c0f4ef0249a9ec68531b9095d55&oe=58A9ADD3

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter(s) - I purchased two! This is an absolutely beautiful halter! Workmanship is superb, leather is soft, contrast padding is lovely, and STAINLESS HARDWARE! I bought two - one in black/purple for my jet black Friesian/Morgan with a delicate head, and one in black/turquoise for my Percheron/Paint with a large but lovely head. The horse size fit both of them perfectly because of the double buckles on the crown piece and adjustable noseband. I took advantage of one of SmartPak's 20% off sales, so that makes them even better! I am very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful classic halter I love these halters. My two boys look amazing in them and the fit is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Quality! I purchased this thinking it would just be a "second string" addition to my horse's wardrobe, but was pleasantly surprised at its classic look and high quality. I ordered it with the optional name plate, and having this installed "professionally" was well worth the nominal extra expense. This halter is a great way to play up barn colors or to express a little personality and flair in a subtle way- especially nice for those of us who are past the age when full fledged hot pink leopard is not longer considered "cute." ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing halter! So far this halter has held up great (only had it for a couple of weeks) and it's super easy to clean! was amazed when I saw it it was so much more than I expected! This stays out when he's in the pastures all day, and has been on my go to halter on him since I got it would definitely buy this it's gorgeous!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse won a gift certificate from Smart Pak at a Combined Driving Event and I thought he deserved something special. He has gotten lots of comments on his beautiful black halter with turquoise trim. It is nicely padded and well made. Certainly a big step up from his web halters that scratched his sensitive and very handsome face!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter I bought this for my American Mammoth Jackstock riding jennet. She has a hard to fit head, and the largest size fit her perfectly. The halter was lovely right out of the box, well made and nice leather. I am also using it as a bitless bridle for her, and it is working like a dream. I may get another for my other jennet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice halter I bought one of these for myself and liked it so much I bought another one as a gift. The color options are good and the quality is super; soft leather, sturdy hardware, and fits appropriately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice This halter came as expected and the appearance is what I was looking for in an every-day stable halter. My horse is a warmblood, but has very fine features. I normally get "horse" sized halters and they are just fine...I hate having a halter that hangs loosely or with gaps. I ordered the horse size in this halter but needed to return for the oversize...I haven't received it yet, so I'm not sure if it will fit or be too big. That being said, I love the free returns on sized items...EVEN with the personalized plate!!! Smartpak service and focus on the customer/horse is second to no one!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & a great value Super nice, leather halter! I bought it when they were offering free engraving, and they're so nice, I'll be saving them for show days only! True to size, with oversize fitting my 17+ hand Oldenburgs. I'd buy one again!
