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'!).

    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 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 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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This halter is awesome, especially for the price!!! I just got a new horse and wanted an inexpensive halter because she is so young and I didn't want to worry about her breaking a really expensive halter. This halter is so much nicer than I thought it would be! The leather is so supple and really a very nice quality. It is just as nice as some of the really expensive haulers.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big design flaw affects Cob size halter only. :-( I really, really wanted this halter to work. It's beautiful - the turquoise color was perfect and looked great behind the black leather, and the leather was nice and supple. HOWEVER, there is a serious issue with the ring on the chin piece where you'd clip the lead rope to - the diameter is too narrow to slip over the adjustment buckle for the chin strap. I have other color padded halters that I ordered from England, and have never had this experience - all of the rings have always been large enough to slip over the buckle with ease. I called SmarkPak and they were great about looking into it for me. Turns out this affected all of the cob-sized color padded halters they had, but that the horse-sized ones were just fine. They suggested I return it since it couldn't be easily fixed, nor did they know when they'd be able to get new ones in with the larger ring in place. Just wanted to alert anyone wanting a cob-sized color padded halter to call first to see if they've remedied this issue first, rather than having to mess with having to return a Christmas gift that should have been perfect right out of the chute. I'm disappointed that they didn't catch that before shipping them out to customers....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful halter! I LOVE this halter! The leather is beautiful and so soft. I oiled it since I always oil my leather, but this hardly needed it. The stitching is tight and I'm sure it will last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Soft Halter I expected to love this halter and I was not let down. I am saving it to unwrap on Christmas, thus, I have not put it on my horse yet but I know she will look good in it. I have a chestnut Weltmeyer mare with a flaxen mane/tail and I got the Havana/Green halter. I had debated about getting the pink or red because it was so pretty but green goes with a chestnut so well and it matched my lead rope. Straight out of the box, the halter is very supple and soft, the throatlatch snap is awesome. My last halter was basically the same thing in black/white and with the other kind of snap and it eventually broke so I decided to upgrade to this halter. I definitely recommend it. Ps. the Havana is a deep brown, not a bright or light brown.
