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.

    SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter is rated 4.825 out of 5 by 200.
    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost too attractive for turnout:-) Love this halter. Fits well, nice soft leather and is very attractive. Unfortunately I had to replace the first one I purchased, as a pasture mate had a taste for the nose band. Lesson learned, too pretty for turnout:-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Padded Halter A really nice halter for the money. I have a thoroughbred/draft cross who has a rather nice head. He wears a regular horse size bridle so that is what I went with as far as size for the halter. It was a bit small, so we had to return it (easy!) for a warmblood size which fits perfectly. He is a bay and looks so handsome with the green lining.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter! Beautiful leather halter. Fits my AQHA gelding (the horse size) perfectly. Soft, elegant leather, nice hardware and rolled throatlatch. Personalized with a gold plate and it looks really nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-soft leather out of the box! We've had this halter for about a month. It was so soft right out of the box- no need for conditioning and breaking in. It is very high quality, and it looks like it would have cost much more. I am very pleased with this purchase, and our pony looks like a million bucks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and high quality... This is a beautiful black leather white lined halter. Perfect for daily use, and nice for a show halter too. I added the chrome nameplate and it looks perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Halter I love that this halter is different than other halters. It is beautiful and good heavy duty and quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have some issues with the description of the halter. First, the halter is listed as 1", but with the padding it is actually 1 5/16. This was to bulky for my mare. Second, the buckle on both sides of the halter has "smartpak" stamped black into the brass hardware. This might not bother me if I were being sponsored by smartpak, but I am not. I have included a photo so that you can see what I am talking about. Really this is too bad becuse the quality of the leather is beauitiful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Well Made I bought this halter a few weeks ago and am absolutely in love with it. I bought it in havana/havana and its very beautiful. The leather is soft yet strong. I bought the cob size and it fits my 15.1 welsh X very nicely. See picture below for the adorableness :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Halter This is the second one of these I have purchased. The fit and craftsmanship is excellent. If the darn horse next door doesn't chew on it I expect it to last many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice halter! Love this halter!! Never thought I would go for a blue padded halter, but this is lovely and matches my geldings eyes!! Very soft leather!! Does run a little smaller than the triple stitched smart pak halter without padding, but the warmblood size still fit my big-headed horse!! I got the name plate customization as well and it looks lovely! I also bought the padded leather lead with chain and it matches very well!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks nice! I received this halter as a Christmas gift. It does run small so I needed to send it back for oversized. I love the red and black, it is well made for the price! Thanks Smartpak for making sized returns free! I never hesitate to order from you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NIcely Made But a Bit Thick I got the red/black combo in cob size for my Arab and it fit very well. The red is a nice rich red and is evenly placed behind the black leather (no weird waves). The leather is sewn nicely and while it's double thickness, it's soft and pliable. But... because of the double thickness, the crown piece doesn't easily slide through the buckles. I keep the "working" side of that piece unbuckled past the tongue. I've had it several months and it's working out very nicely, even with a loose flap for a crown piece.
