    SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 281.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and strong! I got this for my birthday about a year ago and not only does it stay soft year round but it's strong and looks great too. I got her name on it with a personalized name plate and i personally love it. It fits her head nicely, as it's a horse size, and it seems to run true to size. I would really recommend this halter for any kind of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supple, gorgeous, and durable Purchased for myself and again later for a friend in another color. The leather is durable and can withstand some tough love while still being gorgeous. Got Havana with blue and black with purple both with name plates. Pricey but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this halter I am always hesitant about buying leather halters online in fear of getting them home and looking "cheap". Needless to say, there is not disappointment with this halter. I liked that I got to choose an underlay color for a pop of color and it doesn't look cheap! Fits true to size and seems like it will hold up well. I can't say if it is as durable as it looks as I've only used it once to try it. Can't wait to use it to kick off the first show of the season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter!!! I've had my halter for a few weeks now and am SO completely in love with it. The leather is great quality, butter soft, and strong. I got the black with purple underlay and it's just enough color to be a nice accent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great halter for the price Bought this halter and am absolutely in love with the softness of the leather and the color. I was unsure as to the quality when I bought it thinking it would look "cheap" but it is a stunning and sturdy halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Halter!!!! I bought this halter a few months ago and I can say that it's amazing!!! It was soft and subtle right out of the bag. I got the black leather and white padding, on my black Arabian it contrasted so well the other people at the barn were jealous. The cob size fit perfect for my Arabian, I didn't need to adjust anything. It is a little pricey, but the leather is so soft and it's very durable, in the end it's definitely worth it. I clean it with leather cleaner and conditioner and a damp paper towel for the padding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks super on my horse! Purchased this with personalization for my horse when we go to shows. Very nice quality, and even with two lines of text on the metal plate it is still easy to read.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Halter I have been using this as his daily turn out halter since it arrived. If it gets dirty I wipe it with a damp cloth and it looks like new. The leather was soft and supple from day one and the cob size after adjustment fit my large pony just fine. I did put some weather proofing on it to protect the leather. My boy looks quite dapper in his new halter. The SmartPak logo on the buckle doesn't bother me a bit and the metal fixtures are good and strong. With care we hope to enjoy this halter for a good long time

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, soft leather!!! I bought this halter to replace a fairly new nylon halter that was cutting into his snout. I bought the Havana/Havana color, horse size and it fits perfectly and looks gorgeous! It is super soft and wearing it right away did not leave any rub spots. It cleans up really nicely with a little leather cleaner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing halter!!!! I got this about a month ago and I just love it, I got it with the black leather and white padding for my black Arabian and it looks stunning on him. I got a cob size for my Arabian, and most halter a don't fit him, surprisingly cob sizes, but this fit his well! I'd suggest this halter to anyone who wants the best for their horse, it is also really soft and subtle right out of the bag!!!

    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! :)
