I have always purchased Walsh halters for my horses because their quality and craftsmanship is so nice, but when BigDees was out of stock of the size I needed for my mare, I decided to give this one a try because of the reviews it received here. WOW, am I glad I did!! The leather is soft yet durable, and the solid brass hardware is heavy-duty. It does run a bit small compared to other brands, but the horse size fit my dainty-headed 15.3 TB mare just fine. I highly recommend this halter for anyone who wants a top-quality show, shipping, or turnout halter. This one definitely fits the bill.

I ordered 2 halters for our 2 horses as part of my daughters Christmas present. The extra large one fits our big horse perfectly and the regular one fits the other horse great also. The name plate looks really nice too. Very very happy Great price. My daughter thinks I paid a ton of money. Do not tell her!!!
Good Quality Halter; runs small
The quality of this halter is as good as some that are twice the price. It runs a little on the small side. I ordered a regular horse size for my Freisian/Arab who normally wears a regular horse size in halters and bridles, but I had to purchase a large in order to fit him properly. I still kept the regular horse size for my cob sized horse even though he did not need a new halter because I liked the quality so much!

Love this halter
The halter was nicer than I thought when I opened the box I was excited because it is for my 2 year old colt who is beginning his racing career this year and to see his name along with the dam and sires it was just a really great feeling to see my dream is becoming a reality the halter is adjustable to fit him as he grows and it looks fabulous on him I am extremely happy with the product as well as the nameplate engraving .Thanks so much

Very nice quality Halter
Very pleased, Nice quality for the price. Sized well, Large Horse fit my O/S warmblood.
Very Classy Looking Halter!
I read most of the reviews on this halter before I bought it, and after I received it I was pleased to see that they were all true! This halter looks very expensive and is soft from the git go - love it. Got the brass halter plate at the same time and it was already attached to the halter - all I needed was to put it on my horse! Very pleased with this purchase - and with the price!!
- Anne, CO
Quality with fast shipping
Halter with name plate arrived in three days. Remarkable.
- Terese, FL
Beautiful top quality halter!!
Cant say enough about this halter! This halter replaced a 150 dollar halter my mare broke. I was cautious about buying something cheap, but this halter isnt! It is just as nice or nicer than my expensive halter. Beautiful dark brown solid heavy leather. And it smells delicious! My girl wore this to her first show and she had a lot of compliments. No one could believe I spent 42 dollars. I recommend adding the nameplate. Looks great and it was put on perfectly. Even gave her a bath in this halter 2 days after getting it and it never stained her white coat. I was so happy this also shipped to me 24 hours after I ordered it.
Really good quality at a good price
The halter is made in the US - and is very well finished, true to size and looks very well made. No problems. Very happy.

Leather Halter Review
Love the leather halter with name plate. Received many compliments and questions of where I made the purchase. Will definitely be a return customer.
This is the 3rd halter that Ive purchased! First one was for my Stallion 5+ years ago and it is still going strong! The quality is excellant. I was tired of replacing nylon halters so I ordered 2 more for my mares. Great halter and well worth the price! Would recommed to anyone.
- Wendy, IN
Incredible quality for the price
Ive used halters that were 3x the price and had them fall apart. These halters are nice enough for the name plate/special occasion use and also for daily use. The metal polishes up nicely and the leather is a good quality that holds up and cleans up well. I have purchased over 10 of these for personal use and gifts. I will never buy another leather halter elsewhere ever again.

Leather Halter review
Great quality, looks great with the name plate Big Dees made and applied!
Premium triple stitched leather halter
These halters are top of the line, fully adjustable and priced affordably!! These are the only leather halters I buy now!!
well worth the money! So pleased to have found it :-
Triple Stitched Leather Halter
This halter is made of very nice and soft leather that will last a lifetime! It also has quality stitching. I would also recommend getting a brass nameplate they are very nice and Big Dees attaches it your halter for no extra charge!
This is the second halter of this type that I have purchased from Big Dees. I just love it! The quality of the leather is amazing and can be compared to those at a much higher price. I receive compliments on this halter wherever I go. Great purchase.
- Amy Taylor, WI
100% satisfied very nice halter
Love these barn halters!
Purchased several for our show horses.
- Raelyne Hrbac, OH
Just what I wanted
This halter is soft and strong and good quality. Just what I was looking for when shopping for a new leather halter for my very large weanling and mare. I didnt want a cheap quality halter made from stiff leather, and I wasnt disappointed when it arrived. Its gorgeous.
- Katja Henriksen, KS
Amazing, so soft!
This halter exceeded my expectations! Is soft, supple, and smells like brand new leather all the time! You wont find a better halter ANYWHERE.
- Victoria, TX
All the reviews that say great buy are correct.
I love my new halter! I wanted a quality halter for my thoroughbred to go to the track with. She looks amazing in the halter and I am going to buy the rest of the horses in the barn one.
Runs large, but really nice quality.
I give 5 stars for quality, but 4 stars for fit. I searched and searched for a quality leather halter. There are so many cheap leather halters out there, and I think I tried them all. Happy to have found these. They do run large. The smaller size fits most of our quarter horses.
very nice soft leather halter. fit my mare perfectly. it was exactly what i was looking for.
- melissa, OH
Great for barn or show
This halter exceeded my expectations, and I plan to get one for every horse in the barn. Its wonderful quality, and makes a great barn halter, but is easily nice enough to go to the horse show.
- Julie, MI
Loved the quality and durability in the halter. Metal name plate justifies the cost when you see it on the horse.
- Grove City, OH
Halters are the one thing I dont mind splurging on. I am used to having to pay about 100+ for a really nice one but my new horse decided to break his old one so I needed a quick replacement. I Heard about Big Dees super fast shipping so I came here. Needless to say, I will never buy another halter from anywhere else. The quality is just as good if not better then many other halters which I have bought for a lot more. The nameplate is beautiful, the dark brown color a very rich chocolaty brown. My horse has a narrower face and Horse size fits perfectly and the leather is the perfect thickness to look very professional on him.
- Charlotte Lenney, CA
Well made leather halter for a reasonable price
Looks great on my in training thoroughbred. The halter stands up well to getting wet during baths. The brass nameplate adds an elegant touch.
The halter is beautiful. The thick leather is high quality and, after a coat of oil, very flexible and well stitched. I bought it for my 4yo OTTB and after an initial wear in period when I was worried about some stiffness, it now fits him beautifully. I use the throat clip all the time to take it on and off and the brass seems to be holding up very well. It is made as well if not better then halters which were purchased for much more. With the name plate, my trainer told me that she thought it was worth at least 150$.
- Charlotte Lenney, CA
Amazing Quality at a great price!
Super soft and supple right off the shelf! I find these halters both beautiful and durable. I love having the double thick and double stitched crown for when I trailer, but have purchased the replacement breakaway crowns for everyday use. They are a very heavily oiled which helps in the long run, but tends to leave marks on light colored horses until it is worn for a little while. The hardware is all top quality solid brass AND I love that they are made right here in Ohio by the Amish.
- Jessica R. Big Dees Employee, OH
Completely in Love.
I am a super picky halter person. I really dont like to spend money on leather that is not of great quality, especially to turn out in only to have break in a day. This halter is stellar. The construction is great, the leather is great, and the fit is great! I really cant say enough about this halter! Black and Brown are both great to have. The triple stitch helps give it a bit of style, but I love that the leather is soft and doesnt rub my horses head like the nylon halters do. Couldnt ask for a better halter for the price!
- Jess V Big Dees Employee, OH
Blown away by the quality!
I am a bit of a tack snob and halters are on one of those items I just dont skimp on. I always go for quality, fit, feel, and look. Ive actually grown used to paying $100+/- for a good halter usually Walsh brand, but after reading the reviews on this particular halter -- and wanting to save a few bucks -- I decided to give it a shot. I figured that, at worst, I could return it...but this halter wont be going anywhere. This is absolutely the best $42 I have ever spent on a halter, and I foresee me purchasing THIS halter over and over again if ever needed in the future. The leather is thicker than Walsh, but just as soft and pliable. It is a beautiful halter, very well made w/great, solid hardware. It did lose some dye upon first cleaning -- but in comparison: I have also had black Walsh halters do the same I ordered black in this one as well. I could not be happier if I tried, and it is so nice having bought a halter JUST as nice as the $100 ones for less than 1/2 the price! Thank you Big Dees for an absolutely UNBEATABLE value!
- Robyn M., AL
This halter was a pleasant surprise. I ordered it in black with the name plate on and couldnt be happier. Others around me thought I paid closer to $150.00 for this halter. It fits true to size and the leather is a good quality. I will certainly be purchasing more of these in the future for my other horses.
- Amy Taylor, WI
Top Quality and Beautiful
I have ordered many of these for my horse and for Awards. They are the BEST ! I always get the brass plate from Big Dees and they are gorgeous. They are sent out quick also
- Suzanne D., NJ
More than I was expecting!!
When I opened the box I was flabbergasted! I could not believe how thick and well stitched the leather was and the metal fittings are heavy. I wanted to send my thoroughbred racemares down to KY to breed with a minimum leather halter and nameplate, but now they will look high class! Free name plate is BEAUTIFUL including name of sire and dam. Great deal for the price!
Fantastic quality & value
Thick, supple leather, solid, quality hardware. Highly recommend. Just as good as the ones that cost 2-3x as much elsewhere.
- Jen, WA
Big Ds Triple stitched leather halter
I love the triple stitched quality and adjustability of this halter!! Well made and long lasting!! I ordered one for each of my horses I was so impressed with the quality for your $$$!!
- Jen Cahoon, MA
Love the triple stitched halter!!
This is my 4th triple stitched halter. I buy one for all of my horses when I get a new one in. This particular halter is a replacement for a previous triple stitched halter that Ive had for 7 years. The only reason I replaced it was because I wanted a black instead of brown on this horse. I have cleaned up the old one and will reuse. I really like that the halters have 3 places to adjust and a jaw snap!
- Rhonda, OH
Great leather halter
There is everything to like about these halters. I get them with the nameplate attached which is done free of charge. I can never get the nameplate to attach properly so that is a great service. I have racehorses therefore they get alot of abuse. These leather halters hold up beautifully under stress and look great as well. I have purchased several of these and will order more in the very near future.
- Holly Perini, NY
Triple stitched leather halter with brass nameplate
Give away your old nylon halters! Your horse deserves a classy halter like this and the price is right. Dont know why I waited so long! Makes every horse look special!
- Audrey, NY
Triple stitched premium leather halter
This halter was PERFECT...it was hard to believe that I got such a nice halter for such a reasonable price! The halter itself is beautiful and fit my Arabian gelding great! The custom name plate just made it all the better!
- Jo Rae, PA
Beautiful halter, great value
Very nice halter, great quality, lots of adjustments, true to fit. Got it w/the nameplate attached, looks fantastic. People comment this halter is too nice to use daily, but I do anyway! Highly recommend.
Leather Halter Review
This is a great halter. I opted to put on the brass nameplate and it looks great.
- Emily, TX
Beautiful Halter, Excellent Value!
We ordered two of these halters with the engraved nameplates. They are absolutely gorgeous - way nicer than you would think for the price. Also, you will not beat Big Dees prices and super fast shipping! We received the halters the next day even with the engraved nameplates.
- Traci S, MI
Excellent quality...a bit oversized.
Ive purchased several of these halters. Very high quality leather. For a small headed horse I reommend a yearling size. I have to take the horse size all the way up and in for a regular headed horse, but I do, because I like the leather.
Great Quality, Great Price!
These halters are great quality. I wasnt expecting such nice leather for the price. Best price on leather halters I have found in a long time. I also got the name plate with FREE attachment! You cant go wrong with this halter.
- Erin, MI
Triple Stitched Leather Halter
Very nice, high quality halter. Extremely durable hardware. Highly recommend.
- Kathy, OH
Super nice halter for the money
I bought this halter for my gelding and love it! I also bought the name plates and it looks great!
- Jill Koss, MI
I hesitate to buy halters online, since I have several previous purchases sitting in the bottom of a drawer, waiting until I own a horse that I dont like very much...
But this halter is very nice. Soft and adjustable - it adjusted very nicely on our hard-to-fit Saddlebreds dainty head.
We added the nameplate, since the halter is pretty enough for the show grounds.
- T McD, PA
Attractive for the Price
I use these halters for my yearlings, riding horses and race horses. I like leather because it will break if necessary. And while you do have to clean leather, there is nothing like it. These halters are well made, and have stronger brass fittings than the cheaper ones.
- Katherine, VA
I just got mine today, and I am very pleased with it. Fits my thoroughbred very well and the leather is nice.
