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'!).

    Wellfleet Fancy Stitch Padded Halter by SmartPak is rated 4.7426 out of 5 by 101.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Leather I bought this as a new show halter for my Hunter Gelding. I had previously had a similar halter by Circuit, but the welfleet is richer leather and the padding is noticeably softer right out of the box. lovely details and hardware!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style! I bought this recently and I love it! Great quality and great army especially for shows!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from O/S size is good! I have a really tough time finding nice halters that fit my half draft's gigantic head... Seriously, constant struggle. This one works! It's on the last hole all around, but the quality is lovely and I love the fancy stitch and padding, so that doesn't bother me at all! Great buy!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice halter, but not my favorite I bought this halter about 5 years ago as a stable halter. It is very pretty out of the box, but compared to other leather halters I have used in the past, the Wellfleet does not stand out. The stitching on the nose piece wore out within a week of purchase. Unfortunately, this halter has always shown wear; it has never cleaned up all that well.That being said, I have never had a problem with the hardware and the padding is nice. I do think this halter would be better as a 'special occasion' halter than a daily use halter. I do not use it during the summer at all because it does not stand up to sunlight very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halter I ordered this halter for my thoroughbred and it fits great! The leather is very nice and hardly scratches, also very adjustable to fit pretty much any size. It cleans up very nice for shows and breaks in easy so it will fit your horse quicker! You can get a name plate on it for not very much money. The nameplate looks just like it did on the computer and is very nice. This halter is great overall and is very pretty on the horse

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful halter! Bought this halter for my quarter horse mare and it was beautiful the moment it came out of the box! The color is wonderful and the leather is soft. Also a plus that smartpak shipped it with the engraved nameplate already secured.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, runs small This is a lovely, well made halter, nice leather and stitching, with generous padding. It is a little darker than I expected, and runs very small. My warmblood has a small head, and a regular horse bridle is large on him. I didn't get this in warmblood size, expecting it would be huge on him, but the horse size barely fits buckled on the last hole on each side.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful halter! I bought this halter to use for shows, and it is beautiful and soft right out of the box. I did notice that most of the brassware was dinged up, but I emailed SmartPak, and they said that it could be remedied with a metal cleaner. I also got a custom nameplate on the halter, and it is perfect. Overall, this is a great halter, and I am happy with it. Just beware that the brass is a soft metal and may ding easily!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Halter! This halter is awesome! Straight out of the box I was in love! I got the custom name plate with my horse's barn name and show mane and it looks better than I ever could have imagined. The leather is supple and soft right away and you can tell it was well made and it will last forever. The horse size fits my 16 ottb perfectly and I love how adjustable it is. At first I was skeptical to spend that much money on a halter but it is defiantly an awesome piece of tack. It took not even a day extra for mine to arrive even with the custom name plate. One of the buckles did appear scratched up a first but after a little wipe off it looked great! I bought this intending to use it only for shows but this halter may turn into my everyday halter. It is so stunning and well made and defiantly worth it. :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from expected more My horse is suffering from lymphoma and has months to live so I wanted to get him one last beautiful halter. My wellfleet halter with custom name plate arrived today (8/7/14). The leather is beautiful and soft. The name plate is exactly as ordered and I love that smartpak attaches them. However, for the price (I paid around $113 with discounts, I see that it is now on sale for $102) I will not be buying another one. I expected more with respect to the hardware. Directly out of the box the hardware on the halter is scratched and discolored (see pictures). Maybe I'm picky but I expected nicer hardware on a $100+ halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifull halter This is a really nice halter. Beware that the sizing on the oversize is more like a large horse and not an oversize. It is between the 2.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful craftmanship The halter is beautiful with nice leather and stitching. My horse's head is between acob and horse size, I ordered horse size hoping it wouldn't be too large.I was quite surprised to find the halter just fit my horse. The halter runs quite small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful English Halter I bought this halter to show my hunter lunge liner. I wanted something fancier than one of the Kentucky halters without a name plate. This halter was the answer. It came and was soft, adjustable and looked beautiful on with the fancy stitching. When I need to replace this halter I will most certainly buy another one of these halters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful halter! This halter is beautiful and very soft. My only complaint is when you shorten the chin section, the excess does not have a keeper to hold down the tab.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this halter. I was looking for a show/off property halter for my horse, and found this one. I wanted padding, fancy stitching, but still looking refined. I found it. My horse looks very regal in this halter, it fits him well, and he looks very comfortable in it! Worth the money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice leather I love the dark color of the leather. It looks great on my dark bay.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I searched for a fancy halter for weeks. This one was back ordered, but I couldn't find any others that I liked as much so, I waited. The halter is absolutely beautiful, perfect for shows. The only negative about it, is that it runs small. My horse is a 17.2 warmblood so I orderd the OS, it JUST fits him on the largest adjusted holes, when the sheepskin fleeces are on. It is a little snug around the throat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I purchased this halter for my show mare after she destroyed her old one. The halter shipped quickly and looks great on. The only thing is it runs a touch small through the throatlatch. Not to the point of being a problem, it is just smaller compared to other brands of halters

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning Halter Quality is great and has an elite look. Runs small though. My horse usually takes a standard horse size but needed oversized. Definitely will purchase another.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality control I will be sending this halter back. The main problem being that the rolled throat piece is off grain and does not lay correctly around the horses throat. It curls up in an irregular way and is easy to notice.This is something that should have been caught by the manufacturer, or if not them the Smartpak person that filled my order. Also the leather is quite stiff overall. I have had much less expensive halters be nicer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited to use I got this for a show halter, haven't showed yet, but I'm excited to use it. I can't comment on the durability yet, but it seems like it will last a long time.Very thrilled with the leather for the price!
    Date published: 2013-02-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too impressed I was replacing our leather halters and I don't like everything to match so I ordered leather halters from seven different companies. While this is a nice halter, I don't think I would order one again as I don't like the padding as much as I thought I would. My preference is the triple stitched halters as they are easier to clean and softer.
