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 4.8283 out of 5 by 198.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter This halter is extremely nice. I bought it based off how soft and durable the leather is said to be in the reviews. I had a name plate added and the whole halter looks really good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful halter! I splurged on this halter for a show halter for my 16 hh TB/Hano cross. I got the blue and havana horse size customized with his show and barn names (barn name on second line). He usually is in between horse and cob sizes with his tiny nose and delicate features, but I measured the old nylon halter I've been using and compared to the measurements found in the Q&A section of the product description and the horse size was closest. When it came in, I see there is a TON of room for adjustments, especially around the nose. He would have fit in either one, I think. It looks beautiful on him (he is gray) and now I just need to find a lead to match. The blue has a very slight purple undertone; more like true blue than royal or navy, but it is really pretty. The leather is very soft out of the package and the engraving looks great. I might splurge on another one for use around the barn, it's just so nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartPak Leather Halter I really liked that the halter was soft and ready to use right out of the box, no breaking in period. Looks fantastic on my handsome gelding, befitting to his majestic looks ha! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this halter! I ordered this in Havana/Havana. I choose horse sized for my smaller paint. He is almost on the smallest size, but there is tons of room for adjustment at the crown for a bigger horse. The leather is nice and supple. I did put some leather conditioner on it and play with it a little and it got even softer. I personalized this with my horse's name as well. I love this halter and it looks so fancy without being over the top. I do a lot of group trail rides so I didn't want something too fancy, just a classic look. No problems with this halter so far!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this halter! I've been lusting after a nice, show-worthy leather halter for a long time, and I'm so glad I chose this one! I had pretty high standards for a SmartPak brand product, and this halter definitely delivers: the stitching is great, the leather is soft right out of the box, and the quality of the construction is fantastic! Not to mention, I added a nameplate to this halter, and it looks really sharp! Plus, I waited for a sale and got this halter for a great price. If you're looking for a high-quality, show-worthy halter, PICK THIS ONE!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect halter I bought this halter recently an it fits my horse so well! I love the rolled throat latch. My horse has a fairly petite head so I went with the cob size. I couldn't be happier with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and beautiful. Halter was soft and beautiful right out of the box, which I greatly appreciate it. No break-in period. The leather is apparently high quality as are the fittings. My only niggle regarding the halter is that it runs large, so my average sized horse took a cob size halter. Still, I recommend this highly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as Described I purchased this item a little over a month ago for my new horse. The halter is very nice; exactly as described and reviewed. The padding is soft and the leather is good quality. I bought a horse size for my 4 year old Oldenburg and it fits him well, with a little room to grow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this halter I bought this halter a few weeks ago for my quarter horse gelding. The leather was soft and supple right out of the box. I purchased the halter in Havana and the color was beautiful! The adjustable chin strap and double buckle made for a great fit and the padding is soft and comfortable across his nose. I have already received a few compliments from my barn mates. I definitely recommend this halter!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp looking halter Bought the black/red halter for my small black & white pinto jumper. Had it personalized for when she goes to a show. The hardware on the halter is silver and the added name plate matches. Nice leather - I didn't have to condition it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Quality Just received my halter and its stunning. Super soft leather. Very well made. The stitching is meticulous. I ordered the black halter with brown padding and chrome hardware. I really wanted the chrome hardware and the combination of black and brown leather is stunning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter! The cob size is gorgeous on my quarter horse mare, who has a very dainty head. The leather is very supple and soft right out of the box, although the buckles are very slightly hard to adjust to the very top hole due to the padding. The halter fits perfectly, and the padding is great for my horse, who gets rubs easily. If you get this halter, get it customized with engraving; smartpak does a gorgeous job of making the halter look beautiful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bought this amount a month ago and the leather is very supple. With new halters I usually have a hard time adjusting them because the leather is so hard. This halter required no break in time and looks great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Quality Ive bought plenty of halters before and this one supersedes all of them! The quality is amazing the color is fabulous. I also purchased the nameplate and the engraving is beautiful. Won't be buying any other halters ever again! I opted for the cob size for my quarter horses head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice halter! I have been looking for a black leather halter with white padding for a long time and this is the nicest leather at the best price. It's very soft and supple and looks great on my horse. I'd recommend getting a nameplate and having SmartPak put it on for you. It looks super snazzy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super fit for my quarter horse I first bought a similar halter at Dover but the horse size was too big. So I ordered the Cob size from Smart Pak. It was too small. Since I thought it was the same maker I almost didn't order the horse size through Smart Pak. Sooo glad I did! It fit's my Quarter Horse's head perfect! Although they look like similar makers, the one from SmartPak fits very different and is perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice halter! I bought two of these halters to replace 12 year old ones that were finally looking shabby. I'm very happy with the quality of the leather and fittings for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter Absolutely in love with this halter! I've previously purchased SmartPak's double stitch halter and loved the quality and have always wanted this halter and had to wait for my color combination and size to be in stock. Love that the halter is butter soft out of the box (just like my other halter was). The turquoise is more of a teal, but it's still gorgeous! And the nickel name plate is a beautiful addition. I personally don't think that this halter runs small like a lot of the reviews state, as my gelding is in between a cob and a horse size and the cob fits him perfectly! Thanks for an amazing product, SmartPak!
